Can Jim Knowles Turn A Solid Spring Into A Dominating Defense This Fall?

After several seasons of struggle and inconsistency, the Ohio State defense looked solid this spring. Is that improvement for real, and will Jim Knowles be able to carry it into the season this fall?

Devin Radcliffe is one of the Xs and Os gurus at BuckeyeHuddle.com. He joins host Tom Orr to discuss what he saw from the defense that makes him think the improvement is for real.

  • What does it mean for the front and coverage to be married?
  • How do you keep players out of run/pass conflict?
  • Is the defense going to be as aggressive as it was in 2022?
  • How does Knowles use his 3-safety structure to make life difficult on opposing offenses?
