Patterson seems to be adjusting his defense just fine

In this review of the battle between Patterson and Helfrich at the Alamo Bowl there were some interesting notes to pick up on how the Frog 4-2-5 is continuing to evolve to allow them to handle some of the stresses created by balanced spread attacks.

Nick Orr was a revelation at safety that brought a ton of versatility to the TCU coverage schemes, I'll be curious to see if they keep him at weak safety or move him to free safety where his range and athleticism will be needed. It's a shame young cornerback Julius Lewis went down early in offseason drills to a torn knee because the Frog secondary was looking really good for 2016 with him, Orr, and Carter all coming back.

More on potential replacements for TCU coming this week as we finish up the Big 12 recruiting round-up with Texas Tech, TCU, and finally Baylor.
