"I think they stack up," Tomey said in a phone interview Thursday.
"I think their defensive front is as good as anybody’s, including Alabama or whoever, and that’s where you start on defense. That’s the biggest difference in their team now and their team four years ago. Four years ago, they were not nearly as strong in the defensive line.
"And they have as good a quarterback as anybody does, maybe better," Tomey added, referring to Kellen Moore. "If someone doesn’t think they are not in the conversation, I would think they are misinformed."
Great quote and all, but is the the same guy we watched last Saturday?
