Wednesday’s Quotables
Junior FS Geoffery Bacon
(Ref.: his change from mike linebacker to free safety this spring)
“Spring is going well. The change to safety is going okay. I’m progressing each day. That’s the main thing the coaches keep talking to me about. The good thing is getting to work with the team. Even though I’m at a different position, the coaches want me to lead.”

(Ref.: the defense’s emphasis this spring)
“We’re trying to swarm to the ball. In our defense, the mike is supposed to make a lot of tackles, but one thing we can take last year is that sometimes the mike isn’t going to make all the tackles. If we swarm as a defense and get everybody to the ball, that’s a sure tackle.”

(Ref.: how his replacements at mike linebacker are doing)
“I think they’re doing a great job. Gino (DeBartolo) and (Hayden) Tippett they are smashing heads out there. I like it.”
