Raleigh Hokie Post-Pitt: Part 1

The following is a transcription of a phone interview with Raleigh Hokie.

1: It seemed like Tech played more man-to-man.  Is that true?

I’m not sure I’d say we played more than we wanted to.  What we did was blitz a lot.  Our game plan was to get a lot of pressure on the quarterback, so I think that’s why we saw as much of it as we did.  I think it was originally intended to be a multiple defense, but when you lose Kyle Fuller and you have to start moving people all over the field like Bonner to corner and Cole to safety, you are going to play more man-to-man because the players understand that.  You simplify your coverages.

Bud Foster was angry about his defense’s performance against Pitt.

2: Describe the problems up front stopping the run.
