Auburn's defense has played a lot of football in two games. Through week 2, Auburn's defense is averaging being on the field over 90 plays a game.
Two wins though.
Ted Roof spoke with a number of reporters yesterday and was asked about playing "2s and 3s" early in the game. Roof's response that that:
You've got to see big picture...some of those situations we've got to be careful about how we pick and choose where we insert guys but we started off the season saying this was going to be defense by committee and we've stuck to our guns with that...at some point that development of depth is going to pay off...especially in this league....at some point towards the end of the season, you hope everyone stays healthy; but if they don't your not putting a guy in there that hasn't played before.
