Report Card: Defense

The defense was simply too much for the Citadel and it showed in the stats. Less than 100 total yards, five first downs. It was an easy day for the guys in garnet.

Defensive Ends: Darrell Burston got his name called a little more this week as Kamerion Wimbley played sparingly. Everyone from Neefy Moffett to Anthony Kelly got considerable time and spent all day pressuring the QB. Grade: A-

Defensive Tackles: With Andre Fluellen taking the week off, true freshmen LeTroy Guion took the start and did so well that the other true freshmen, Kendrick Stewart, has decided to take a redshirt. Brodrick Bunkley had three more tackles for losses. Emmanuel Dunbar and Aaron Jones also looked great. The team gave up nothing on the ground. Grade: A-

Linebackers: Kevin Steele rotated nine of them early and often and the quality of play never dropped. On glance A.J. Nicholson made the biggest plays of the starters. Lawrence Timmons and Rodney Gallon were freaks with the reserves. Grade: A-

Cornerbacks: Didn't really get tested. Tony Carter had another terrific game. The Citadel's QB didn't have time to throw the ball very far. Grade: B+

Safeties: Pat Watkins started the second half with an interception and a touchdown followed two plays later to get the rout started. Little used reserve Michael Kornegay showed off with his extended PT. Grade: A-

Punting: Chris Hall continued his strong kicking in the first half and wasn't needed in the second. Grade: A
