I am 34 years old and currently on year 16 in the US Navy. I am from Southern California, El Monte to be exact. I am a huge sports fan and have been following SoCal sports teams my whole life. I have 6 kids, 5 boys and a girl and we are all California-based team supporters. I will admit though it is harder to convince my boys that USC will get back to their winning ways. I am currently in Bahrain for a year and really enjoy BR.
Hi Richard, thanks for the kind words and welcome to B/R! I think the 5-2 is proven as an effective deterrent to the spread because the outside linebackers can provide lateral pursuit in support of the interior line. The key for this defense is to get some penetration from the interior line so the outside 'backers, along with the mike and predator linebackers, can turn the play "inside out."
Pendergast knows this scheme very well and has a proven track record as a defensive coordinator at Cal. I think he will do very well with this at USC!
Thanks again and welcome aboard!
