Well earned ranking. The defense I saw last Saturday was top notch.

RE: Marshall Defense is #5 in the Nation
Now, after week 8 action, Marshall still holds a respectable grip on a top ten defense nationally.

We are now #5 in scoring defense.

Of the teams that have played more than one game, we are number one in scoring defense. We hold a slight lead over Notre Dame and Army.

RE: Marshall Defense is #5 in the Nation
AJ Hawk said it best, one of the announcers on Fox Sports asked him what makes our defense tick, he took half of a second and knew right away it's that front seven.

We can kind of dominate in a lot of different ways. In most games, we can send multiple rushers, against FAU, we had our best defender maintain spy control over their scrambling quarterback.

It's just an impressive defense to watch overall. This defense, combined with our offensive line is what could carry our team pretty far.

There are some things that need to clean up, they're going to need to figure out how to slow down outside runs. Because we are generally so aggressive, that was the one weakness I saw FAU was able to exploit yesterday. You know teams are going to try to mimic that going forward.

I’m there no it was the LaTech game that one of the announcers had asked the DC, “Where can you attack this Marshall defense?” The answer was “Nowhere.” Lol. That’s a lot of respect.

They were definitely impressive when we played you a couple weeks ago.

This is true. I wanted him fired last year, after 4 games I’m rooting for a 10 year extension 02-13-banana02-13-banana02-13-banana

I think it stems from having an actual QB that is smart enough to absorb the playbook. We haven’t had that since Cato in 2014. That and Doc seems to be allowing our OC to be more aggressive with the play calling and not so ultra conservative.
This team definitely has a better vibe and feel about it than those of the last 4-5 years. The cancers have been booted. Jmo

Week 9 in the books, and now both Marshall and FAU are top 5!

Note: of teams that have played more than one game, Marshall is #1 and FAU is #2!

Who has been arrogant?

I'm honestly baffled. We haven't rubbed our success in anyone's face.

We've beaten more than ODU thats for sure.

See Marshall isn't just a team or a school. We are a program of constancy. We had a run of 22 years with no losing seasons. We won 2 IAA titles, was the winningest program in the 1990s (Marshall 114 wins, Florida 112), have had multiple All Americans and 2 Heisman Finalist in New York (Pennington and Moss) and had one finish 6th in voting (Leftwich). We moved to IA after the 1996 season and have been ranked top 25 at some point and time in a season 14 times in 23 years. We are 12-3 in bowl games, that puts us #1 in winning % of bowls with 10 or more bowls.

Like me, banker or anyone else that points out what the Herd has done or hate us I don't think any of us cares. The facts stay the same on who we are and how consistent we are.

Also congrats to FAU and their D-.

There needs to be an asterisk there for both teams. * includes games against WKU. Possibly the most inept offense in the nation.

Yes, WKU's offense is a stinker. What happened?
