Defense still wins championships
The following is a list of our defense's finish in the national total defensive rankings since the dynasty began in 2008:

2008: #3 in Total Defense
2009: #2 in Total Defense
2010: #5 in Total Defense
2011: #1 in Total Defense
2012: #1 in Total Defense
2013: #5 in Total Defense
2014: #12 in Total Defense
2015: #3 in Total Defense
2016: #1 in Total Defense
2017: #1 in Total Defense

So in the run we've been on from 2008-Present, we have finished outside the Top 5 in total defense a grand total of one time. We also finished #1 in total defense on four separate occasions. The consistency on defense has been the ultimate secret to our success.

re: Defense still wins championships
Agreed, no matter what turn our offense takes going forward the run game will and needs to remain crucial. No matter how the game evolves u have to run, stop the run , and value the ball. Those maxims never change in championship teams.
