Best Q&A from today’s presser:
Q: What kind of challenges specifically does the 3-3 stack present?
“Coach Gillespie does a hell of a job. It amazes me the job he does consistently even from Tulsa, because, like I’ve talked about, we played Cincinnati a couple years ago, and Tulsa by far and away did the best job against Cincinnati. And we became enamored in that when he was doing it then. And it allows you to have more depth in your defense. It allows you, when you play spread teams, you have more speed on the field. There’s different layers to it, more layers to it. They do a tremendous job. Take all the scheme part out. It’s how you play and strike people. When you watch them strike blocks with hat in hands and the speed with which they play downhill and just strike people, it’s a beauty. It’s a thing of beauty to myself because I enjoy watching really good defense. And they play it. And it’s very unique. So when you go to prepare for it, it’s not as easy. It’s different. Now, you could make a case in their league, they may see some defenses like that, but I think the thing, everybody says, everybody plays that defense in their league. They’re not all the same. They’re not all the same. And when you play another team in another conference, you get to see their conference and see the defenses. And people would say, well, everybody runs that in that league. That’s not really true. And this is probably the most unique and, in my opinion, played the best of all those defenses in the conference.”
Why do I have the feeling he had three different concepts in his head on how to attack TCU’s defense before they were even a CFP finalist?
