    Defense played well most of the game... except when the secondary is in zone, they play the softest zone ever.. I don't know how many times we let ASU just run an in in the middle of the field and be completely uncovered and wide open for a 20 yard gain.. Just ridiculous..

    And why the hell is Nichols covering a TE in coverage.. Stupid frickin zone blitz call.. Either have him rush the QB or take him out of the game and go with another LB... We gave up a first down on a 3rd and long because of that and I believe they gained another big play with Nichols trying to cover a WR or TE... Stupid, stupid.. stupid..



    Defense plays well at times, but I'm still not sold on him as DC..

    we are struggling defensively for 3 reasons, imho:

    1. we lack speed overall.
    2. we don't have enough lbs who are ready to play in the big leagues.
    3. our dbs are average at best, undersized, or inexperienced (excluding t-wheat and walters).

    it will get better as the year goes on, i hope.

    I disagree on the LB's.. I even think Smart and Duren don't look that bad out there.. Lack of a pass rush and the lack of speed in the secondary(especially at safety) hurt this defense more than the LB's..

    Wonder how much of a different game this would have been in an airconditioned dome? I'm not going to panic knowing that we don't have an other 100 degree away game in our future.

    If the D can sustain first quarter pressure for the entire game, we'll be okay. At least in the CSU game, the D got better as the game progressed. Not so today. Ugly football.

    I'm blaming the weather until more of a pattern develops.

    I totally agree on the Nicholas coverage point. I think i even saw him chasing a RB out in cover a couple times, skip that coverage scheme. And for the love of God, please get Brag Jones off the field, i am sure he is a nice kid and all but he cannot play linebacker, i see his #40 chasing receivers after they make catches on his more than anyone else, he just doesn't get it done.

    Jones was doing some rushing the QB on 3rd down last night...
