Speed, Give me more Speed!

Have you noticed the trend among NU's commits so far this year? Check out the 40 times - anyone can see that they fit NU's Defensive coaches' concept of "speed kills." Here's another look at the commit list with a few score and game updates, but check out the 40 times...

When you talk with NU's Defensive Coordinator Greg Colby...
He'll tell you that the reason Northwestern is looking at the 3-4 defense is getting more speed on the field. Coach Pat Fitzgerald seems to agree with that idea and as the old recruiting coordinator has made recruiting speed a priority - at least as far as the class of 2007 is concerned.

Check out the 40 times in the chart below - ignore the linemen, altho some of them are pretty quick also. As defensive coaches tell you, "Speed Kills" and NU is now going for more speed.
