The entire starting defense has its Blackshirts now, following the Minnesota win (except for Ben Stille who declined)…are fans able to change their standards for the unit?

-There were some players who had Blackshirts previously, but now the whole starting unit has a Blackshirt, except for Ben Stille, who didn’t think he had practiced well enough to earn a Blackshirt yet, so he declined

-We’re in a different age in college football where it seems really hard to have both an elite offense AND an elite defense…so for those expecting 90’s Nebraska defenses or even the 2009 defense, it’s probably not going to happen. But what is a standard that fans can accept and be happy with, if possible? Just doing enough to win games? Even if that’s allowing high-20s ppg?

-More from Frost and post-practice Tuesday:
