That D allowed Nc state to score a TD in the first 18 seconds of the game. NC State only scored 3 points in the first half as a result of a turnover and 13 points overall as a result of turnovers. And even the one TD they scored off of as a result a turnover nc state went 59 yards to get it so it wasn't like their backs were against the wall. They just gave it up. Their had to have been like 40+ tackles missed that game prompting Fisher to talk about it along with the players. Even Hunter talked about it. He made about 10 tackles that game cuz guys in front of him acted like nc state was covered in grease. sh*t their is even a YouTube video of the nc state game strictly about missed tackles.
The D made Brissett look like a superstar. This is the same nc state team that had an egg on the scoreboard against Clemson. Then got handled by BC. Also the same NC state team that almost lost to southern.
OK St, Clemson, Nc State games follows a pattern. I've explained it, Junior has explained it and others have on here. We want the D to be good but that's simply not reality right now. With the return of Thomas and Eligwe brings some sense of hope but even if they perform like we hope they will only be putting a band aid over certain section of a big cut. Those two can't cover the whole cut. Its up to the rest of the guys(a lot of it is on Kelly too) to do it.
We shouldn't have to count on the offense dropping 35+ per game to win. This is fu*kin FSU. Defense is tradition. We should have a good to great defense every year. It should never be mediocre to bad which they currently are till they show otherwise. I can wish this d was at least decent right now now but that's not reality. Like I say every week, I'm waiting for this part of the team to change. Right now, the D is only capable of making timely stops. This will be the last thing I will say about it till the Notre Dame game is over. Im looking for results from them.
