Strong teams have a strong defense first. Perhaps this defense is on the right track now that the players have turned in their blackshirts. It must have hurt to turn those back in. It shows they have an understanding of the tradition, the blackshirts dictated. To me it says this group of men are on the right track to improving. To earning their blackshirts back. Will it happen this year, there is not much time left, but I think the talent is there. The only question I have is the desire there.
