The thing that folks forget about with dissing the Pack defense is the impact of one and done (both transfers and early entrants) and the restrictions on coaching time. It used to be that most players stayed 4 years. There was continuity and repetition of defensive principles. With the limits on coaching time Gott and his staff have to make decisions on how to spend that time. I believe that as our offense has gotten more refined over the 3 years our defense will also with more time and players in the system for longer. I do believe that Gott chooses to allocate more time to offense but defense will move to at least avg in the coming years. You can look at Duke to see the impact of limited practice and player turnover on defense. K’s defense is no where near as intense as it was 15 years ago.
