The thing that's most concerning to me from a defensive standpoint is our third down defense. Our opponents are converting 44% of the time on our defense. That's terrible, VMI is only worse in the conference. I think that's the biggest weakness we have on defense.

Looking behind this stat, isn’t the reason our 3rd down conversion rate is so poor because our pass defense is so porous? Our opponents know that if they need anywhere between 3-10 yards, that our scheme will willingly give them a generous buffer to get it. See, our results for the last decade + against the up-tempo/2 minute offense.

You are right. It’s been that way a while. But we are obviously scared to change for fear of getting burned deep.
