Podcast: Physicality, Consistency on Defense
The podcasts are also available on
The IC radio crew switches to defense today, discussing the emphasis on physicality that has marked fall training camp. Includes clips of Gene Chizik's press conference and discussion of what we've seen in training camp.
"I've never been around a good defense that was not physical," Chizik said. "Anybody can look at a film, and you don't have to be a football expert to that we're playing physical or we're not."
North Carolina's defense clearly was not physical last year. How will that change? Are physical practices going to be enough?
What three things does Chizik say have to improve on defense? How quickly can that happen? Is there a "culture" change necessary before that can happen?
How important is the scheme change? How different is it from what has been done?
The IC radio crew discusses these issues and more on the podcast.
