Auburn defensive coordinator Ted Roof: No tricks, `you have to out-hit people’

Ted Roof was asked if he’s going to run a multiple defense at Auburn like the one he ran at Minnesota. Auburn’s new defensive coordinator talked about a 3-4 defense and adjusting on the fly, and then offered this:
“This league, you don’t trick people. You have to out-hit people. There won’t be much tricking going on.”
That should make Auburn people happy. Roof and assistant Trooper Taylor talked to Auburn beat writers about a variety of subjects Thursday. We hit some highlights of Taylor’s talk in the blog entry below. There were some interesting comments, so check it out. Here’s more from Roof and Taylor:
