An encouraging quote from Mo Richardson on the new defensive scheme (care of the UND.com videos of 3/30):
"I like the defense a whole lot more. I see this defense as being more flexible, giving us more playmaking opportunities, and in the long run, by the time we get to the season, there will be a lot less 'thinking'...it's more versatile.
"It's hard [for an offense] to guess where a particular rush is coming from. You might have a sense of what's going on, and you'd hear us saying the same things over and over, and think, 'the same guy's coming, the same action is happening', when really it's not. I believe this defense has a little bit more elusiveness to it than the last one."
