Along with all 11 of the 2020 starters, two 2019 starters will also be back in Justin Foster and Xavier Thomas.

If we want to be precise we had about a half dozen more get at least one start in 2020. This defense has a chance to be better than average.

it would have helped,if the now extinct o-line holding call would make a comeback.don't forget that will also be the same defense that stomped ND in the 2nd game.

Not only do we steal signs, we also start 13 on D. Surprised we don't get penalized more.

With the guys that were injured in some way with missing several games at a time, and then get injured again missing games. If that hadn't been the case last season, we could have had a top 10 D last season. With all those guys back, with most of the guys that came in on that 2019 Top 5 recruiting class getting more snaps, and any that are good enough to play as freshman from the 2020 class, we should look to be a top 5 D next season, don't you think?

Hopefully we'll be able to create pass pressure (w/ some consistency) with only the 4 down lineman. Last year, it was a concern but if the D can only get pressure by gambling on the blitz, it's a problem

Really need the DEs to get pressure when one on one. If the

DTs in the middle can tie up at least the three interior linemen, those DEs need to get after things, without losing containment of course! That is unless they have to cover a TE or RB depending on the call. Lot's of stuff for them to keep their mind on.......
