Vulnerables has definitely improved the D from the past years, but I don't understand how this was "nailed" by Dabo. They gave up 35 to OSU and all I have heard is how good the D played. Gave up 50 plus to FSU. Couldn't stop a SCar 3rd down for anything.
Did you see our D under Steele? Anything would be an improvement over him. We lead the nation in TFLs this season and were significantly improved on third downs (outside of the South Carolina game
I wasn't overly high on the Venables hire at the time, but he has done masterfully here. Next year the D should take a big step IF we can find a DB or two.
