Different D, hard to say what Sabre will mean from here on

Basically, the 3-3-5 will probably feature 3 high safeties. The middle safety is usually the guy with the cool name, like Joker (Texas), Lobo (NM), or Aztec (SDSU). If you want to see some pretty good descriptive videos look up Iowa State. Maybe our middle safety will be called the Sabre, but until now we were in 2 safety looks.

You can do a lot with this defense, including running it "broken" or "flexed" by moving one of the LBs out a bit to the slot or a bit outside of a DE.

We were in 335 throughout the spring game. At first during the scrimmage we brought heat from it successfully, then went vanilla using is as merely a base defense. I didn't see anything much from the middle safety, but I'm sure that we aren't going to show much until the UNC game.
