And neither is Pat Narduzzi. All spring, the best defensive coordinator in the land has been talking about how he needs more from his guys. More effort, a better understanding of the scheme and better overall play. As far as the names on the back of the jerseys, the Spartan defense will look significantly different in 2014. There likely will be some growing pains, but fortunately it is late May, not late August.
