Johnson’s savagely humorous [book] is a grunt’s-eye view of worry and loathing, vanity and madness in a dysfunctional, dystopian closed neighborhood. It’s like M*A*S*H on ice, a bleak, black comedy. ”—The occasions of London

At Oklahoma when I was playing, we played the 4-3 in a nickel situation. But for the most part, teams in the Big Eight ran the football. They did not throw the ball all that much. But today the 4-3 defense allows you to balance across the front and secondary. The 4-3 defense is an attacking defense. We teach our guys to attack and react. We get as close to the ball as we can and come off the ball. In our alignment we want the inside hand down. The inside hand is the one closest to the ball. We want our inside leg back.
Miami and Florida don't play each other. If we can beat both of those teams, we have an opportunity to go for the National Championship most of the time. We were fortunate to beat both teams in the regular season this year. We have been in the ACC for five years. Our second goal is to win the ACC Championship. That is important because the winner of the ACC Championship automatically gets a New Year's Day Bowl Game. How you are ranked at the end of the year determines what type of bowl game you get.
I don't believe you can be aggressive on defense and not get penalties. We got a lot of criticism against Florida for hitting late, but we got penalized twice for it. I don't want my defensive ends wondering whether the quarterback still has the ball or not. I want them coming hard, not holding back. If we've got a guy pinned against the sideline and the whistle hasn't blown, hit him. That back should not be running out of bounds. We don't teach dirty ball. Bobby Bowden doesn't, and he would fire anybody who did.
