Until the Virginia Tech game, our defense had allowed every opponent's first offensive drive with multiple first downs and into Miami territory. Virginia Tech and now Duke were held to 3 and out on their first drive.

Even UAB got into Miami territory and into field goal range. They had a penalty and we made some plays and forced a punt. Same with Pittsburgh. Most of our opponents marched right down the field and scored. FSU got all the way to our 1 yard line, but only came away with a FG.

It's good to see our defense finally come out strong the last 2 games and be physical and flying around. Yeah, Duke sucks, but other teams with a poor offense came right out and pushed us down the field.

Kudos to the coaches and players for fixing this issue.
