Our front 7 is pretty darn good vs. a spread offense or a regular pro-set, but if you put them up against a big, strong, and effective O-line with some good running backs, and we don't really match up good. Could you imagine what LSU or 'Bama could do to us at this point. It would be ugly. I don't know if I necessarily want MIZZOU to lose again. And I'm sorry, I know that Leonard Floyd is an excellent pass rusher, but he looked like a schoolyard chump yesterday. They were picking on him. Very sad...
I think Pruitt got outmatched on Saturday. Never really did any run blitzes; never seemed to adjust. That's bothersome.
It's a Catch 22. If you have the big D-line guys we used to have, then you probably do better in a game like this, but then you have trouble against spread or finesse teams. When you're smaller and lighter, specially on the ends, 418 yards against Florida happens.
I'm not smart enough and don't understand the game enough, especially defensively, to know what the answer is. Thoughts?
