    Always want to see players do the ‘Hookem’ instead of anything else but what the heck I reckon sense I particularly like those two I’ll forgive Bijan. I know it matters to them, ha.

    Here is the defense that Kwiatkowski will bring to UT against spread offenses in the B12:



    Dare I say a little more sophisticated than what we have seen before? Note, only 1 DB up close even on the triple receiver side, but all receivers are covered in the scheme.

    Oh, sometimes the blitzer lines up deep, then creeps or delays. All the different defenses start from basically a similar look. Hello, Gary Patterson.

    Too late. He went down to the crossroads and sold his soul to the devil.

    It is their Offensive team now along with RoJo, Whittington, Smith and Wiley or Schooler. Omeire will be somewhere and I bet Sanders will be also.

    Like Bijan's shirt. :hookem2:

    His cuts are a thing of beauty, but the cut he DIDN'T make at about 1:34 was one of the best moves imaginable.

    Mike Roach --

    Players on campus returned to workouts today with new Director of Football Performance Torre Becton. One source I spoke with said the difference between Becton and former strength coach Yancy McKnight was "night and day." I was told the players got along with him well today and he focuses on the details. Yancy McKnight certainly has a strong resume of results, but one source told me they felt what Becton did today applied to the field a little more. I think the atmosphere was a little more relaxed from what I heard. In fact, one former player told me that at times under McKnight and Herman, workouts felt like prison

    Bijan's plays in 2020:



    It's humbling, yet gratifying, to know that he studied my game film from when I played a few years back.

    Free article from IT -- "Kwiatkowski’s track record versus the Air Raid and what it means in the Big 12"

    " ..... “When you go from one extreme at Texas Tech to the other extreme at Iowa State and everybody else in between, I think you have to be multiple,” Sarkisian said about his defense. “You can’t be one dimensional. It won’t be an experiment for (Kwiatkowski) because he’s been doing that now for the past 7-10 years from a coordinator standpoint.”

    The Pac-12 wasn’t as diverse offensively as the Big 12, but it was likely a close second in the metric. As a result, Sarkisian is confident in his defensive coordinator’s ability to stop the spread offenses he will see during most Big 12 matchups based off Kwiatkowski’s track record."

    Very good one, IMO

    FWIW, the timing of these type of productions are usually not random by us. Matt Lange and company are usually putting these out with a certain recruit (or recruits) they are pitching at that moment. It's sort of a read between the lines guide to who we are hot after in recruiting.

    The ISU defense will be stout again
    Their nose tackle, and 2 of 3 safeties get an extra senior year thanks to the covid rule

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe I read they return 19 or 20 out of 22 starters. That is insane

    In the playoff era, four teams have won at least 80% of their games: Alabama (.919), Ohio State (.901), Clemson (.899) and Oklahoma (.815). All four won their conference last year, along with 22 of 28 league titles in the playoff era and represent 20 of 28 playoff participants.

    Also of note, UGA is in 5th spot w roughly 78% overall win% and a few CFP appearances including 1 Final.

    On a different but related note.....
    Of the teams with highest win%, ou is 0/4 and has not reached finals.
    In general, 2015 Ohio St notwithstanding, the 4 spot isn't a place you want to be (ou lost once from the 2 spot)
    CFP Stats
    Appearances in CFP, wins, losses, overall win%, semi record, finals record
    Alabama 10 8 3 0.727 5-1 3-2
    Clemson 10 6 4 0.600 4-2 2-2
    Ohio State 5 3 3 0.500 2-2 1-1
    Oklahoma 4 0 4 0.000 0-4 0-0
    LSU 2 2 0 1.000 1-0 1-0
    Oregon 2 1 1 0.500 1-0 0-1
    Georgia 2 1 1 0.500 1-0 0-1
    Notre Dame 2 0 2 0.000 0-2 0-0
    Florida State 1 0 1 0.000 0-1 0-0
    Michigan State 1 0 1 0.000 0-1 0-0

    If things play out well, then the CCG will be the play in game for a playoff spot.

    Texas will start spring practice on March 23
    the Tuesday after spring break.

    Practice will be Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for five weeks.

    The spring game could potentially be played near the end of April.
