Norman North bracing for physical matchup on defense

Norman North has had math problems on defense.

First, the numbers were an issue. The No. 6 Timberwolves (7-3, 5-2 District 6AI-2) went from having possibly the best depth in program history, able to go six or seven guys deep at linebacker for instance, to just two returning starters, and one, defensive end Cole Mashburn, has been dealing with injuries throughout this season.
