          They lost Reggie Smith and Curtis Lofton, who were easily their best players on defence but it should still be a good unit, just not elite.

            Miami's defense should be much improved as long as we stay healthy in the new system. Breaking every bone in Tebow's body should get us top 5 alone.

              They still have plenty of talent left though. Auston English, DeMarcus Granger, Gerald McCoy, Ryan Reynolds, and Nic Harris are all studs.

                They also lost Lewis Baker, Marcus Walker, Darien Williams, DJ Wolfe, etc. They'll struggle vs. the pass.

                    Darien Williams really didn't play all that much last season and Lendy Holmes is a pretty good corner. Oklahoma is a big-time program, I'm sure they aren't going to throw some rejects out there to fill out the secondary. Too many people assume just because a program loses players at a certain position, they're going to be bad at that position. That really isn't always the case, especially with big time programs. Oklahoma may not repeat as the 9th best defense in the country, but they'll be just fine.

                      no love for the #4 ranked defense last year?

                      we lose a lot, but the guys replacing them are a lot more athletic

                      plus we have a better defensive staff, and our lbers are a lot better

                      we return our mlb, olb + the other olb was a force on st and had 50+ offers until some legal problems

                      we have a juco s thats goin to start, along with jr quinton andrews who was a freshman all-american

                      on the line we have sophomore scooter berry who was a freshman all-american and juco de tevita finua who was one of the top jucos in the country

                        But when you lose a good coverage LB in Lewis Baker, your top defender in Lofton, both starting corners and 2 safeties, I think your pass defense might struggle a bit. Nic Harris is a big time player but he can't do it all on his own....look at Kenny Phillips last year, and Kenny's more dependable. There's no substitute for experience anyway.

                          No, they aren't Top 5 right now.

                            Michigan's defense returns 8 starters and is top 10 calibur, but probably won't show it statistically because of how mediocre the offense will be. Morgan Trent, Terrence Taylor, and Brandon Graham should be all-big ten performers, while Donovan Warren, Will Johnson, Obi Ezeh, and Tim Jamison are very solid players. Only question mark is the safeties, with inexperienced underclassmen likely stepping in.
                            I'm a state.

                              You don't play anyone.
