[UPDATED] Coach O on the D Line


These guys could be real scary...Hope the offense can keep up!

UPDATE - Paragon: Here is a little more from the OCR

Perhaps Ed Orgeron was caught up in his own hyperactivity. Maybe it’s a little leftover hyperbole from the Pete Carroll regime.

Whatever the case, the anecdote USC coach Lane Kiffin relayed about Orgeron on Saturday was worth filing away:

“Orgeron came to me halfway (through) practice to say: ‘We’re not going to be a good defensive line, we’re going to be a dominant, great defensive line.’ ”

There’s no question that the line is the strength of the defense. It features experience, talent and playmakers of all shapes and sizes.

Kiffin is especially enamored of the idea of having 6-foot-5, 295-pound Armond Armstead at defensive end.

“We’ve got a 300-pound defensive end, so I’m real excited,” Kiffin said. “When you start studying this conference, this conference has changed. When you look at the stats, where the teams are ranked, there’s been a turn since we were here. I’m glad that we are big.”

Man, these guys are beasts!
