There is going to be much improvement in the defense from now to next week.
These youngsters will not want to get embarrassed out there like this again.
The coaches have some game film to show them and some of that shock and confusion will be buried.
The defense will be much better going forward - the issue will be that everything was so terrible today that even monumental leaps in improvement could only get them to okay.
