Your secondary and linebackers are only as good as the defensive line. If you cant stop the run consistently and cant get pressure on the quarterback the linebackers & seconday will struggle as well.

We need a solid middle upfront to first stop the run, and then put pressure on the quarterback. This is critical for any defense!

I just think the Safeties will be good no matter what; I'm not so sure about the DT's. Also, the DT's seem to need to be great to succeed in the 2-gap.

Safties have some known commodities but the D-line has to gel to be a dominate D.

Stopping the run and an aggressive pass rush are the prime factors in winning ball games.

It all starts up front. If you can't stop the run, which most teams try to establish first, then the opponent doesn't even need to test your secondary.

You have to stop the run first on teams that run first. Stopping them from passing is a gift.. Fix this and the blow outs stop.

We haven't had good safety play for two years now.

The way I see it, the little weasel will be running scared, not knowing what him!

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
