College Football Gambling Update: Texas' Strong takes over defense

10.04.2016     09:20 AM     Printer Friendly

UPDATE

Well, that didn't work. After saying he was going to have more of a role with the defense heading into last week's game vs. Oklahoma State, Texas head coach Charlie Strong will now call plays. Strong also demoted defensive coordinator Vance Bedford. The Longhorns gave up 49 points and 555 yards on 7.82 yards per play. Note that in games against Notre Dame, Cal, and OSU, Texas' defense failed to force a single takeaway. It will be interesting to see if Strong reverts back to last year's game plan against the Sooners. The Longhorns ran the ball a season-high 58 times (313 yards) which limited Oklahoma to only 65 offensive plays. The end result was a job-saving 24-17 win. If Texas goes the trading scores route, the outcome is inevitable.




College Football Gambling: Texas' offense on the upswing but defense regressing

09.28.2016     09:27 AM     View Original Blog
Live by the tempo, die by the tempo. Texas has finally made good on its word to pick up the pace offensively. The Longhorns are averaging 83.7 plays and 44.6 points per game. The defense however doesn't look built to handle the extra possessions. Notre Dame hung 47 in Week 1 and Cal topped it in its 50-43 win over UT two weeks ago. In three games, the Longhorns have only one takeaway. Following the bye week, head coach Charlie Strong vowed to be more involved in the defensive game plan. Also note that the offensive numbers may be a bit skewed considering the competition. Notre Dame has been so awful defensively it fired its defensive coordinator. UTEP somehow allowed 66 points at home to Army. And Cal has one of the worst power conference top units in the country.


“I need to be involved and we need to have those meetings,” Strong said. “It was just so key and so important that we just sat down [for] just a self evaluation. Look at yourself … check your ego at the door. Some guys, you’re going to get your feelings hurt, but it is what it is right now, and we have to get it better.”

“We know we have an outstanding coaching staff as a defense,” Boyette said. “Coach Strong has done a good job at recruiting guys here, not just players but coaches as well. They’re a family, and we know that we have a good bond with our coaches.”
