Well that was short lived
Josh Metellus was just toasted to a crisp.
Why don’t more teams take the Belichick approach on D? He identifies what the other team does best and he absolutely takes it away, even if it leaves them vulnerable elsewhere. His thinking is I’ll take my chances with you beating me with your second best stuff but you will not beat me with what you feel comfortable with. We ALL knew #1 is what Penn State does best. Design you’re entire plan around taking him away. But again Brown unwilling to adapt. I was there 2 years ago when Brown asked flipping McCray to cover Barkley all night long and never changed even as Barkley had a career day. Now we are asking our safeties to cover their fastest guy with similar results. Take your best DB (Hill) and say you are covering #1 all night.
