This is what my response was going to be. I can still see Nick Wallin standing behind the net for like 25 seconds this one time. That was the worst of it, but it was the general problem with that defense, no doubt. I didn't post on this board back then, but it was the commonly noted problem about the defense on the board that I frequented back then. And JR agreed, because he sought to change it. Problem is, he didn't know when to stop trying.
