    This needs to be a major point of emphasis for MacIntyre and Baer. Didn't we have like 3 INT's all year on defense? We had quite a few drops too, hopefully more experience helps out here.

    We were 123 of 124 FBS programs at -1.7 in turnover margin/game

    Hard to get picks when you DBs are 10 yards out of place on every play.

    Well, SJSU was #30 in TO margin at 0.62, so I'm guessing we're better at it next year.

    10 yards is being pretty generous.

    The explosive play differential is a big issue too. There should be measurable progress in both areas next season.

    Sacks. SJSU was one of the least sacked teams, yet they threw the ball a lot.

    HCMM is big on "getting the ball out", quick hitters, blistering blitzes. One thing I've noticed is the hurry-up offense makes pass rushing difficult. Guys are gassed up front very quickly.

    Our own QB's were always under pressure while opposing QB's had all day. A second makes a huge difference.

    would you say he follows a "You blitz, we score" mantra?
