Don’t know how significant this is, but it’s still interesting to me. Bobo, as I noted in the last post, tends to take the “we” approach when discussing the offense. That’s not how Grantham goes about his business. Remember when he bristled in response to the suggestion that the players were having problems getting the defensive signals on time?
Well, he may have called that “bull”, but it sounds like he paid attention.
Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham’s schemes and signals had appeared to confuse his young players most of this season. But at Vanderbilt the gameplan was simplified, according to one player, and the results showed.
“We didn’t have that complicated a game plan. A lot of guys understood it,” sophomore linebacker Jordan Jenkins said. “That definitely was one of the better defensive games we played.”
As long as they get there, I don’t care what route they take. There’s a game coming up with a Florida offense that’s the worst in the SEC. It presents a good opportunity to build on what they’ve done in stretches in the last three games – but only stretches. If “keep it simple, stupid” is what works, I can think of worse mantras to build a successful defense on.
