Football Links: Defensive Effort
During game weeks, the defensive players and coaches are available to media members. So it was no surprise to see Desmond Trufant and coordinator Nick Holt were the focus of several stories in today's newspaper.
We'll lead off with Dave Bolling of the Tacoma News-Tribune, who writes that Holt is "confident" in his defense heading into the BYU game. The Cougars averaged 35.5 ppg last season, so the Huskies will have their hands full, even with BYU rotating quarterbacks.
"I feel more comfortable with the scheme and the players," Holt said. "We know what the players can and cannot do; they've all gotten better, they all know the package a lot better, so they're playing faster. There's not a lot of doubt, (so) obviously we're feeling better."
