Brian Kelly on defensive changes: "We're going to play with enthusiasm, we're going to play with the passion I said was missing. Made changes accordingly to bring that back. That will begin to show itself. You're going to see a lot more players playing. There's going to be some depth, some camaraderie. We need to get that morale up on defense and we'll do that with a lot more players involved in what we're doing on a day-to-day basis."
