Better Fundamentals

More from Ole Miss Football

If you’ve been watching Ole Miss football the past three games then you already no we can’t stop the run on defense. Even when we make stops we have one or two missed tackles at the line and what should be a minimal gain is increased by several yards. One of the first things you learn in football is how to tackle. It appears as though we need to go back to the basics.

Once we begin to make fundamental improvements in areas like tackling, then the bleeding of our porous defense will slow. It’s proven our defense can’t stop the run and won’t be able to until missed tackles are a thing of the past.
