The defense has increasingly seemed like a unit in perril. For the past several years Buffalo's problems have seemed mostly offensive in nature but this season that perception seems to be changing.
Sure UB has their issues on offense but teams have abuse the defense lately on long drive after long drive.
It seems some changes are on the way.
It starts at linebacker where Willie Moseley is slotted to start on the inside for the first time this season. The dual of Stockman and Pettigrew have been moved to the second slot.
On the outside, opposite Mack, Isaac Baugh will be getting his first start since Morgan State.
Finally the defensive changes are topped off by the reintroduction of Okoye Houston as a starting Safety. His last stint on as the starting guy was back in week two.
Offensively there are not changes.
But we've learned that seeing Branden Oliver's name on the chart means nothing. Oliver did not practice with pads and word is he wont be back until the Toledo game.
