most of the stuff roof ran was not our d you will typically see. This is one reason why I maintain practicing against the 3-0 does have its weaknesses for a D. These guys ran a scheme and sets they will rarely if ever use during the season to mimic VT, Miami etc. I know some don't think it matters...
With that said. I absolutely saw some base stuff we will run during the year. AND with Jabari at WDE and used to playing LB, I saw him do some zone stuff that I think roof will use. So I do think we will see more zone pressure due to the ? at DE....just a thought.
I agree definitely about how our DEf is weakened by practicing vs our OFf.
-the whole system is different esp if a team runs a pass-happy 4/5 wide set, practicing against that for a few days in season is not adequate-it is different for EVERY player-DL,LBs and DBs in SOME way
-since out Off is so passing weak-how can our DBs get used to strength of a good pass attack with strong arms and fast/clever WRs not to mention the different pass patterns?
-the shotgun snap is also a variable for our DEf,the DBs have to used to quick throws,etc
Our DEF looked at our Off all Sprg-how can that not hurt them at least some?
