Is Gundys offense similar to fedoras...also what is strongs defense like..I have read the 3-3-5 articles but is that his base...is he aggressive?...also how would u rate him from a defensive mind point of view..in the same league as saban, muschamp, etc.? I asked a similar question on TOS yest but it wasn't really answered
Bump for answer
Just my two cents on Strong, but his Defenses at UF were just as good if not better than bama's and uf's now.
Good deal..thanks for the reply..is it 4-3 or 3-3-5 base? If I remember correctly I actually thought those Florida d's were mostly 4-3 although I know everyone is multiple

Strong is a numbers cruncher and tendancy buster. It is a very aggressive 3-3-5 that morphs into a traditional front and secondary post snap. But, a single deep free safety is almost always present. The difficulty with attacking his version is what appears unsound, morphs into a strength post snap. Thus, baiting the offensive coordinator to play to the defense strength.

Thanks for the reply...is it blitz heavy/attacking..or more bend but don't break more like Monte or Wilcox
For the most part, the defense will bring 5 every down. But, the offense must determine where those 5 will come from. Any combination of down lineman, linebackers, corners or safeties make up the 5 who will be coming. Again, a single very deep free safety (much deeper than any other college team I have seen) is a almost always present to eliminate the explosive play.
Does the other safety play up or is it formally replaced with an extra corner? Is there usually three or fourdown linemen? I'm all for the strong hire at this point btw...I think we could def use a defensive minded coach...have we ever had a defensive minded coach...was the general defense or offense?

And again..thanks for the replies btw...wish we had more informed x and o discussions on the board/boards
The beauty of the defense is in the personnel on the field being able to perform multi functions. SS becoming a LB with force duties, down lineman becoming linebackers with zone pass coverage. Corners becoming linebackers off the edge and blitzing.
