James Franklin may rub me the wrong way on occasion, but I think he’s assembled a smart coaching staff. Of course, I don’t know how brilliant you have to be to conclude that this has to be a major component of your defensive game plan against Georgia:
“After watching the film of the Missouri game, the defensive ends did not win their one-on-ones to get pressure on [Missouri quarterback James] Franklin,” Vandy defensive end Kyle Woestmann said at Monday’s news conference in Nashville. “Our defensive tackles were getting pushed around and getting hung on blocks. We have a good opportunity this week against a good SEC offensive line to pick up where we left off against Ole Miss.”
I don’t know whether Vandy’s defensive ends rely on speed or power when they rush. If it’s the former, Aaron Murray had better grow some eyes in the back of his head this week.
