When this play happened, I told The Beef that I couldn't wait to see what Bill Carter came up with for it ... well ... here you go.

I typically try to throw together a Links and Reflections post the day after games. Today I'm breaking up the links and the reflections.  Expect an extended piece later on, but for now here are the links.  And audio!

    All those young players who learned on the job last year are paying off. The coaching staff’s philosophy of substituting liberally on defense is paying off.

    The Tigers have the depth to deal with the curveballs thrown their way — and the beanballs they’ve thrown at themselves with their off-field behavior.

    Case in point: Gabbert’s ankle injury put last season on hold for a month. The coaches didn’t have enough confidence in his backups to get him off the field when he was basically a statue. Last night, Gabbert hurt his hip and took a seat early in the fourth quarter with a 19-0 lead. Enter Franklin, and the Tigers went right down the field and scored a touchdown.

    The depth has been most important on defense, where the lineup has been in flux but the results have been consistent.

    By the time linebacker Will Ebner got back from suspension, linebacker Luke Lambert was out with a hamstring injury. By the time safety Jasper Simmons recovered from his injury, he got suspended. Defensive end Aldon Smith has missed the last two games with a broken leg. The only backup defensive tackle who had been getting any playing time, Jimmy Burge, was suspended for the Colorado game.

    But regardless of the comings and goings, the Tigers have played good defense.
