I pac twelve media day rules aren't more ducks with that Derek Malone. We're -- now linebacker he was all pac twelve honorable mention last year -- -- thirteen games. At the inside spot and you know there's -- there's squad that conversation here about the defense this year. New coordinator -- -- he'd been there so long. Just start by an eighty -- the differences with with that is with Don helmets. Basically I feel a lot of similarities because you know come Pelham. He really learn from focal -- a -- -- but the differences that are really see right now is that. BP wants to you know over our defense understand what's components that's where. He was pleased to Symbian with spots obviously. Or. Focus on have a cohesive team for -- gives -- see is that you know we're learning from other people's positions and having a better cohesive team. But you have means that this was -- line -- -- last year kind of went in with a little bit of that kind of not know -- factor some unknown faces and this year. -- little bit more stability there you know especially with which you come back a lot of people wouldn't in the post season honors on your right now. Via a little bit. Physically -- -- that -- dilemma core we have we -- a bit nervous and you all of the entire scheme so it's going to be. And enable us of a bitter attack him be more aggressive and I you know -- act fast and trigger you know more fast faster. Everything like that so. It's definitely we're gonna we emotionally faces so was able to you know have the same terminology talking not really you know foreign to us anymore fluently no better you know linebacker -- -- talk of the office when this team has really been special years it's it's in the defense. -- about that national title game with bill this this great matchup between your profits and -- stuff that's -- with the defense that -- played so. It's kind of one of those that if you guys are gonna have that as the year that a lot of people are talking about the offense may get the credit but the defense one's gonna get to there -- like to stand by saying goes you know defense wins championships so. That is being our mentality going into we've got to really know their hearts out every -- just a chip on your shoulder a little bit you get labeled not only -- as an offensive team but. You know the helmets and in fancy you know speedy you don't really get known as the -- the physical unit. If people don't talk about this defense as is kind of a nasty hard -- you if you look back over the years. It's this couple get you -- little -- Did it just let Fiat not me personalize this for mr. Massoud just because this is -- you know who I am. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But we know we just play our game you know just we don't really care about the glory area like that moment -- job. What is. Your best explanation for how the defense finished up last year little rough -- the against the run north India. A civil war but came back in the ball game what what was your take on how it finished up for the last console and we -- you know very well Texas as a real physical big. Running team -- you like that. But I -- we got our our minds right kind of mentally right and you know. All of the pieces fit together very well enough let me finish the year very -- and I'm hearing a team with talking to you guys some about. Last year hit it a lot it's just mental a mental thing if something happens what what was your opinion on. You know kind of where the team mentally last year. I can't I have no idea honestly on the I can say is that it when he -- his his -- in which is knew what we have to do we got our mentality you know. You know -- aggressiveness in the you know everything's -- perfectly and you know vessel got to continue to figure for this next season. This maintain that and made no progress on it just keep mean that physical team that. The system he says that you know we are. They say it's hard to get on top part of the state there was. You look at last year's failure and he went like eleven games for I don't know how much of -- -- that is used to go to BCS games you get there. Was that a motivating factor maybe media hunger that wasn't there in the offseason. Knowing that last year didn't and we wanted to -- that was a very successful season. Yes definitely how cereals are only see myself personally I know that you know loosen the don't play better than we did you you know dump the ball and some aspects and creating room you know extremely -- -- must showed you know train harder. Militants in about my mind is as we know anything it's what we need to be. -- this -- work in and we don't you know wanna lose any games come -- this season. This is that Derek Malone. Senior linebacker for the -- break out player on the defense give me your prediction is -- who has guided the once talking about that you think is poised to help us out on your unit. I think Bill Walker. Honestly. I've seen him you know killer in the weight room any known conditioning and you know. -- Smart with the overall defense office fillings Bruno Bruno Africa you. You that -- guys the last couple years it's been kind of a slow build into the season that any easier QBs that there are some layups. On the -- yet start out. No offense the South Dakota whatever. And then we to. Yet the big boys come and attack on. Maybe a little bit different knowing that these guys over the in the season have probably when -- two biggest games of the year. Not necessarily we just know we -- -- reporting on this thing you know faceless opponents as we always been preaching in that's who we really you know. Believe it's this -- opponents so. Pursuant take every game and when did it time and competed and you know he seems on its own -- party helmet in the weight room and I don't know -- pitcher on the hair not the right now we really don't do that like everything is you know faces opponent in the you know we -- welcome and we comes -- train Florian you know. You know service game. All right Derek we did this market so it is he'll be with a -- you're definitely seeing. It's possible though that we're we're the poverty it is. But -- there that's a pro right there. They stick take good luck and -- look over here thank you appreciate it right Derek Malone of the ducks pac twelve -- rules on here in Los Angeles Isaac is seen on 1080.
