"If you're going to win championships, you've got to be good everywhere, but ultimately it comes down to stopping people," said LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis said. "It doesn't matter how many points you can put on the board. If you can't stop people and get the ball back for the offense, you can't expect to win, particularly at the highest level."
"I know this is going to sound cliche. I have moved on," Chavis said. "Certainly I had a wonderful stay there. It was a great opportunity, and we had a really fun time there. I think probably in my mind some of the best years in Tennessee football history. That was good and it was good being there, but I've moved on since then."
