New ‘bandits’ on defense

* — Funderburk is expected to miss the season due to injury.
The linebacking corps is even deeper with a few ends moved to the new bandit position.
Flo Hardin is listed as bandit on the roster, but he gets the starting job on the strongside, with T.J. Simmons in the middle and David Cooper handling weakside chores. Converted end Nick Mangieri is the starting bandit.
Key to success: More big plays like sacks and takeaways, fewer big plays like 80-yard runs.
