Does anybody remember last year when CC was forced to move down to the SS spot and Von Hutchins took on the FS position ?

Kubes said something to the effect of CC being a natural SS and that he was really being moved back into his real position....

Why would he make that comment if our safeties basically have the same roles and are supposed to be "interchangeable"....It shouldn't have mattered which spot he played if that were the case...Especially not enough for him to have made a comment like that...

If the Safeties are interchangeable why not just put Von Hutchins at the other safety position and let CC stay put ? Maybe because Von Hutchins was a cornerback who excelled at over the top coverage ? AKA what FS's do...

I just don't buy the theory about our Safeties that seems to be "common knowledge" around here...
Just because they don't switch sides when motion occurs doesn't mean that they are interchanging responsibilities...

That'd make very little sense because offenses would easily be able to pick up on that and exploit it...You want to minimize mismatches on defense and a defense designed that way would only help create them...
