Uhhh where were you from 2004-2008 where we had one of the most physical defenses in the country?The 2006 AU-LSU game is a perfect example. That game was a blood bath and the AU defense was mean and physical. Yox has been at AU since January of 1999 and the majority of the time (under Tuberville) AU defense was tough and physical. The same can't be said under Chizik with the same Strength coach. Maybe it's the head coach who should be held responsible.
Sorry, but I dont remember a consistently great or physical defense during all the years you mentioned. In fact, I am pretty sure we got ran over by Arkansas, Georgia, and a few other team during that time. I still stand by my statements that Yoxall needs to go
I'm sorry that you don't remember a damn thing about Tuberville's years.AU's defense rankings from 2004-2008

PLEASE try and convince me that we weren't physical during that time period... PLEASE!!!
