Fall Camp Update — Third Hand Info

So my sources tell me that UNT is not looking so good on defense at camp. (NT03’s post on GMG.com).
It got me to thinking about what Howard Griffith said on the Big Ten Network today about Michigan State’s scrimmage
‘You want some sleepless nights? Have the offense run through your defense in two-a-days’
Eek.
For those not so knowlegeable about the Way Things Are: early in the season, the defense is usually ahead of the offense. This happens because offense is usually more timing-based. Even a power running attack requires the coordination of the big uglies up front to be effective. Defense is more read-and-react.
So if our defense is getting beat routinely by the offense?
Sounds like there are some sleepless coaches in the Nation.
