The defense made headlines last year for all the wrong reasons. But a new mindset, a fresh system, and more experienced players have the unit poised for what senior defensive tackle Shaq Rowell thinks will be a much-improved defense.
It starts with being nasty – a good nasty, of course.
“If you want to be a good defense, you have to have a nasty mindset. You can’t be nice on the field,” Rowell said. “In the locker room, we love each other, but on the field, we have to be nasty or we’ll get the same results as last year.”
