Added defensive tackle Calvin Barnett: “We don't always know what our coverage looks like, and (last season we were) like, ‘Why are we not pressing?' Just little stuff like that. But now we know everything's just getting turned up. As a D-lineman, we are aggressive. Of course that's how we want to play.”
And even though OSU fans will hear quick whistles next Saturday and won't see tackling — except for the occasional hit when guys are running full speed — Gundy believes that aggressiveness will show through at the Cowboys' spring finale.
“Attacking the quarterback and not allowing the receivers to make so many easy catches. That's really what I am looking for,” Gundy said. “I don't know that it has a lot to do with scheme. You don't have to change a lot to do that.”
