Defensive shuffle: Looking for answers

Ogletree moving to inside linebacker, and some of the rest of what Defensive Coordinator Todd Grantham had to say Thursday, tells me a few things. Mostly it tells me to worry about safety.
Me: I'm pretty sure we're only excited because there's news. I'm still worried about a range of things here.

Joe: Oh, we're gonna worry. We're gonna worry until we're over confident.

Me: And then the losing starts.

Normally I get these, not today.

The excitement I, Joe, and probably others felt from reading coach grantham's comments about some of the shifts on defense is probably more due to the fact that we haven't had any real news on that in a while, and not because he has solved all our problems.

We are thin at safety, depending on two guys who played poorly quite often last year. Our lber situation is clearly not good, because we moved a safety down there, and we're forced to play Jarvis outside.

So, I'm worried. But eventually I'll lose my mind, decide the Dawgs are going to win the SEC next year and be disappointed when the rug gets yanked out from under me, as I should have known it would from the start.
