Defenses on Uptempo Offensive Teams


Go Tigers!

  Our defense has taken some lumps this year before looking better against VT.  Yes, I know VT's offense is not a juggernaut, but its still pretty impressive to hold them to just 3 pts in their house.  What I wanted to share though is something I've noticed about defenses on teams with uptempo offenses.  Is it just me..or does it seem like defenses on most of these kinda teams suffer a little bit?  Take a look at the Auburns and Oregons the last couple years.  The offenses are putting up crazy numbers and points but their defenses have seemed a little suspect.  It has felt that way here under Chads attack.  The O has taken 5 steps forward but the defense looks to have taken a step back.  Just so you know, I am not complaining. I wouldnt trade Morris for anybody right now!  Just an observation.     Maybe we shouldn't attack Steele or the D so quickly.  Maybe, for whatever reason, it just comes with the territory of having that kind of O.  Has any team had a dominating defense with an offense that wants to run like Auburn or Oregon?    Also, does anyone have any thoughts about why this would hurt a team from a defensive standpoint?  Do we focus mostly on O in practice?  Does the D not get good looks at normal Offenses?  Or is this all just coincidence??
