BOULDER – Colorado football coach Mike MacIntyre is more than pleased with the spring progress of his defensive line and the unit’s overall depth, which could help resolve an issue that plagued the Buffaloes in 2014,
One major criticism of the Buffs last season was their inability to play a complete four-quarter game on defense, but MacIntyre believes that the team’s new-found depth will remedy that in 2015.
“It [defensive line depth] does everything for the defense,” MacIntyre said after Wednesday’s scrimmage – the last of spring camp before the annual spring game on Sunday, March 15.
“This depth is going to help us in the fourth quarter, making big sacks, clogging up the run,” MacIntyre continued. “All of a sudden you get the ball back. That type of thing makes a big, big difference for us in the fourth quarter and in overtimes.”
The Buffs also struggled last season with keeping their defense healthy, particularly in the secondary. MacIntyre hopes the added depth will help remedy any similar problems the team may face going into the 2015 season...more
