Coach, My family and I were noticing that the defense was a lot more sufficient and stronger this year. Do you think the defense has improved any from last season to this season, and if so, what do you think made the difference? Also, I grew up in a football family, but I still don't know as much as I want to. Do you have lots of female fans as well as the male fans? My last question would be if you know of any female coaches at any level, whether it be high school, college, or professional?

Michelle, the defense is a year older, bigger and stronger, as well as more experienced. They also understand our defensive systems better. We have a lot of female fans, in fact at my radio show each Wednesday, we have more woman attend than men. And to your last question, I really don't know of any females in the profession personally.
