The Anniston Star - Into the unknown: Inexperienced JSU secondary to get first serious test
JSU defensive back coach Matt Wannebo gives some instructions to a couple of his DB's.
It is still kind of an unknown , Gamecocks secondary coach Matt Wannebo
said.To come out and say you have faith and it's there without knowing , that'd be kind of a false confidence.
You can say you do ( have confidence ) because we go against our team in practice and I think they've done real well against our receivers in practice and pre-fall , but until you get to a game , into the stadium , you really don't know..
The Gamecocks are ranked fifth nationally in I-AA in pass defense , but Cumberland and Nicholls each threw only seven passes against them.
It was more a secure-it-as-an-insurance type thing in case they try to do something where now they're going to try to do something and we've got to get there , Wannebo
said.They've got to cover the guy because the chance of throwing the ball is there..
If this were last year's secondary , the questions wouldn't be raised.The Gamecocks had a senior-laden group and shared the conference lead in interceptions ( 19 ).
Hopefully , when they get in games like this , these guys will have learned something from that , Wannebo
said.When you look at stuff now , you can really tell if they were listening or paying attention or not..
But what the Gamecocks don't know about their secondary , the Cowboys don't know either.
