The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
I think that other coaches do effectively recruit against us by pointing out that our DL serve primarily as space-eaters, and allow our Lbs to make most of the plays. And that has probably prevented us from signing a few of the elite DL on our wishlist. BUT, our defensive philosophy also allows us to nearly have our pick of Lbs. And our coaches have more than demonstrated that their strategy builds killer defenses. Plus the presence of Pagan, Fanning, Pettway, Tomlinson, Kirven, Dickson, and R Anderson would suggest that our DL could be even better in the future. In short, don't worry about it, our DL will, on average, the best in the country for the foreseeable future.
It never makes sense to me when people claim we don't need or have to have so and so because of who we have on campus or who we ate bringing in. Recruiting is about the future and if you are losing players from a particular position in 2 years you recruit that position. Heck since we run the 3-4 we try to bring in at least 4 lbs every year regardless of who is on campus. You bring in the best talent period. If our staff has offered the kid then obviously they agree.
