What’s goin on’?
How is the UConn defense helping the offense right now?
Well if you think aboiut all the looks/coverages it’s been seeing the defense trying to master, of which there are many, if the offense sees those coverages or anything like them from opponents during the regular season it should help the unit…right?
“It’s the best thing,” said Shane Day, UConn quarterbacks coach. “Because as a quarterback, when you go into a season, you’re going to play 12 opponents and you’re going to see a plethora of covergaes so when our defense gives us all the different looks against each play then we can go through and teach all the different looks.
“If they only play one coverage…like, for example last year. We were more, primarily, a man team so we didn’t get a lot of off corners or different coverages so we knew where to go with the ball vs. man [defense] but when we played teams that didn’t play man we were a little bit behind. This year, we’ve seen everything. We know where to go with the ball against every coverage which is good.”
We shall soon see.
