    I think I've seen every press conference he's ever given here and watched a few from Bowling Green too.

    Offense is his thing, of course. That's a good thing. But the guy was a D1 LB.

    I don't have time to find specific times, but I'd guess if you found articles at syr.com about defense you'd find quotes.

    (And he wants to run. It's priority number 1)

    You want what nobody else has. When everybody around you is emphasizing offense, you want to emphasize defense. When everybody is passing, you want to run.

    (The other way around is obviously also true - if everybody is running, you want to pass)

    All factors being equal, is pick O because it sells more tickets and gets on TV more. That helps finance the program and attract recruits.
