You can't fully implement a 3-4 defense in one year and expect it to be successful. UGA couldn't do it, not even Alabama under Saban could do it. It takes time to get fully comfortable with a 3-4, and that's just a fact...
The difference is that you usually get BETTER as the season goes on...not showing zero improvement or getting worse.
And with 2 weeks off to prepare, the defense looked like they had just gotten off a 12 hour transatlantic flight in the first half. There was nothing there.
1. The defense improved from previous games in some areas, ie, setting contain on the edge. They regressed in others (coverage on MSUs receivers).
2. The defense made notable improvement between halves, even though MSUs final drive was due to additional coverage breakdowns.
"I'm like Wes." --Ryan Callahan
