I’m a little unsure about what to write about this 2018 version of Bud Foster’s defense. We’re seeing some historic offensive numbers being registered against the Tech defense. I think we all knew that this team’s youth would mean that this defense wouldn’t be up to snuff, at least in comparison to past defenses. But I don’t know that any of us thought it would look quite this bad at times.
I sure didn’t. Perhaps that was naïve on my part. Much of Tech’s defensive troubles stem from the ODU game. They were quite good against Duke, and very good against Notre Dame, with the exception of three plays. However, they returned to their ODU form at UNC this past week. If the Tar Heels could have connected on a deep ball or two, they would have put up well over 600 yards of offense.
