LA Tech's Holtz: 'No weaknesses' to North Texas this season

Recommended Posts

“North Texas has a different team than they did a year ago,” Louisiana Tech head coach Skip Holtz said Tuesday. “A year ago, they had a great tailback, they were featuring him, had a young sophomore quarterback. They were running the ball more, they were in bigger sets.

“This year, you’re seeing them more in four-wides, they put more speed on the field. They spread the field throwing the ball a lot more. A year ago, they had a senior tailback that was their workhorse and they were feeding him. You could load the box more. This year it’s more pass-first, run-second and that’s one of the reasons they’re putting up so many points because they’re making people play in space. I don’t think you can take last year’s results and compare it to this year’s team because it’s completely different what they’re featuring. Fine is a year older, he is now the king of the hill and the feature of that offense. He’s doing a nice job.”

Nice words from their coach. I don't think it's often you get that sort of analysis from many coaches, even ones that you see each year.

Also, he's absolutely right, except that I expect UNT too feature more running as the season progresses thanks to Easly. Gonna be no stopping us.

I promise you that what Skip's telling the media is quite different from what he's telling his team.

Not necessarily thst far off. He's probably telling them where we are strong and where they need to isolate. He's absolutely telling them this game is for the CUSA West and how they can spoil our season. 

At the end of the day, we could win every game on our schedule. Its totally up to our team at this point. They are in the driver's seat.

Wait..............., where’s the part in that article that refers to how many times La Tech has lost to LSU in history?  

Terrible sports journalism!
