I want to say it was better because of what SDSU did to us the last two years and I want to do that to someone else but really was it any better? Edwards slowed down the game, he slowed it so much that I think it effected Manny (not the style he played the first 4 years of college). That slowed game resulted in less time on the field for the defense, and they gave up less points. I liked the job that Bennett was doing last year, IÕm hopeful this new defense will produce like I want it to produce. I love the energy of our DC. IÕve wondered all year as everyone says how much better the defense, would they still be saying it had ASU not changed offensive systems? How would this defense have done on last yearÕs team? The best defense we have seen in the last 5 years by the way was 2017 vs Washington. I hope we really are better not just disguising more bad D with slow offense since that slowed offense was one of the reasons we scored less this year (canÕt say I ever trusted the defense to make a key stop, although both last year and this year they did at times). I guess with the season over IÕm doing my own evaluation of the status of the program. Coach speak is fine, but IÕve heard it for 40 years, I want actual results. IÕm hopeful still this is the one. Glad we hired Edwards, at least we are trying something different.
