Co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Bryan Harsin
On his impressions of the team so far: I like the way practice has been going. I like the intensity. We can tell that [the] summer has been good for the guys. They came in [to camp] in great shape. It's just nice that after spring and those guys having the summer to learn the terminology, to watch film, to prepare, [that] you can see that they've done a good job at that because we picked up and I think our execution, our tempo out at practice, has been good and it showed from the work they put in.
On if anyone surprised him these first few days: You know, we're just kind of watching all the guys right now. I mean, I think that we're installing quite a bit right now. We're getting a lot of guys in so really those first three days are just kind of getting everybody involved and watching them and getting reps and just kind of mixing and matching with all the different players.
On QB Garrett Gilbert: He's done a good job. All of the quarterbacks have done a good job so far. The point of emphasis coming out of spring was, “Okay now that we've put in a portion of our offense, you guys need to take that and continue your preparation through the summer of learning it, the terminology, what's expected of you.” And I've seen that from all the quarterbacks coming into camp. You can tell that they spent time in the summer working on those things. Each guy had three things that we talked about fundamentally that they needed to work on this summer and they did that. They're all throwing the ball better. Their footwork has been good and a lot of things that we talked about have really shown up during fall camp so far.
On if he's seen any separation yet between the QBs: Those first three days, that's really a time where we're mixing and matching everybody. Everybody is having an opportunity to work with different guys[and] different groups. We'll start - now that we're going to be together today - we'll start putting guys in more ones and twos and position groups like that and start to see how they operate. Then we'll start making decisions from there.
On the wide receiver group: I think we've got depth at that position. Right now where we are, we're just getting some of those young guys up to speed. And then in these next few practices when we're all together, we'll start to see where they fit in and who's going to be our top three-four-five-six guys.
On narrowing down to two QBs: We have a scrimmage coming up on Saturday, so through these next practices you need to let guys have opportunities to compete. When we get in that scrimmage, that's going to be really close to live bullets for those guys and once we come out of that, we'll see where they are, see how they handle scrimmage situations and all the scenarios we've been practicing in as close of a game situation that we can get them into.
On if he'd play two QBs during September: I know what you're saying about a two-quarterback system, but you want to come out of camp with your quarterback. If you have a situation or two where you have another guy come in and play, it's really situational, it's not a two-quarterback system. That's really kind of what I think we need to do, and hopefully when it's the right time and we know, we'll make that decision and we'll go from there.
On if he will redshirt QB David Ash: We don't know with any of those guys, we really don’t. I mean right now it’s so wide open for all these guys. We still have so much practice time left and that scrimmage coming up. We haven't talked about that. That's not anything that we're looking at right now. We're just letting these guys compete and see what works best for us.
On if the offense will resemble the Boise State offense: I think so. There are a lot of similarities to what we did at Boise, and there's going to be some new things in there. Stuff that all the guys on offense from different staffs have brought. We're putting our mix on what we're doing here. I think there will be some similarities to what they've seen and what we've done.
On if the offense will be similar to what Texas had in the past couple of years: There are a lot of good things. There are a lot of different ways to skin a cat on offense, and there are a lot of good ideas and plays. The big key for us here is to figure out what our personnel is best at. I think that we have enough variety in our schemes to make sure that we're getting the best plays and schemes that fit our personnel. That's what we’re trying to do, and that's what we're trying to figure out right now. What are we going to be best at, what do these guys do well and let's adjust our schemes to what they do, and that's what we're going to build off of.
On if the offensive line has been determined: [Offensive line] coach [Stacy] Searels is moving them around and he's done a good job at that and really like every other position, just putting them in different positions, different scenarios. Again, it's so early to sit there and define who's going to be in this position at the end because that's not really where we're at. We're just mixing and matching and just seeing guys compete and seeing how they handle certain situations. Like I said, when we get into that scrimmage, we'll come out of that and look at it and say, “Okay this is where we need to be” and start building from there.
On sophomore WR Mike Davis: Mike Davis has been great. The one thing about Mike that I really appreciate is that he practices hard. He's out there to compete. He's prepared when he comes out there, [co-recruiting coordinator/wide receivers] coach [Darrell] Wyatt has done a good job with all those wideouts, but he's really a competitor. I think he brings a lot of energy to practice, and he's got a lot of physical tools. So if he keeps doing those things I think he can be a special player for us, but I really like the way he's competing. I like his attitude, and I like what he brings to our team.
On determining who is going to be a part of the offense: Well, I think the one thing that we had done is that we had played a lot of people. We've given guys certain roles and just tried to maximize their talents and get a lot of guys on the field. One of the things is there's going to be your first-string [and]second-string. And some of those second-string guys are going to be working as hard as the first-string and they deserve to be out there so we need to find a spot for them. They do something really, really well. And as we get into game planning, we can let those guys specialize in certain things, get them on the field and let them go out there and use their abilities. I think it makes it fun for us and fun for them and that's what you really want as a player. You want to have an opportunity. If I'm out there working hard, and I can find a role or spot and I can get in there, that's really what you want.
On how the play calling will work: I will be [in the press box]. All those guys down on the field will be on headsets. We'll send the play down. The quarterbacks will be on the headsets as well so we'll have guys signaling plays in. Coach Wyatt will be in charge of the personnel groups so everyone on the field will have a part in us calling plays.
On the running back situation: You know, it's the whole package when you're running now. I think it's just a matter of getting everybody in the right spots and we'll do that. We'll figure that out here in a few weeks, but yeah, I think the mentality is there. I think we have the personnel to do it, and I'm looking forward to it.
On the tight ends: The tight ends are doing well. One thing about our tight ends is that we ask those guys to do a lot. Those guys have to be really, really smart and so we put a lot, in our install. There's so much going on for those guys so they're kind of jack of all trades, and they've done a great job. I think physically they all look good. You can tell they did well in the summer. Mentally right now, we haven't had any busts with those guys right now. They're prepared, they're doing well in the meetings. [Recruiting coordinator/tight ends] coach [Bruce] Chambers has got them dialed out there, so I'm excited about that group.
On RB Malcolm Brown: He's doing well. All the freshmen have done a nice job at grasping the offense. He has done well. He knows what he's doing out there. He's getting lined up in the right spots. I think all those guys are doing a really, really good job. I think our older guys are doing an excellent job of helping the younger guys understand what we're trying to get done.
On if the offensive game plan is at 100 percent from the 30 percent it was at in the spring: That's about right. Twenty-five to 30 percent, really the base stuff is what we try to get done in the spring. We're going to introduce that, and we have been introducing that in the fall. What's going to happen [is] our personnel is going to decide who we are. There's going to be things that we might have done in ‘06 that we might pull out, and then there's going to be some things that we've never done because our personnel is different. The ideas that we have here are different. We're going to get in what we need to and know that these plays have a lot that we can build off of. And once we run them and see where we're at, we'll continue to build off those.
On the QB situation: We have some good quarterbacks here. Those guys are competing, and they'll continue to compete. When it's time and we feel like we're ready to make that decision, we'll do that.
Co-offensive coordinator/running backs coach Major Applewhite
On his impressions of the team so far: They're great. The guys are working really well. Offensively speaking, you can see the carryover from the spring and the summer, all the work they did over the summer. Some of the things when we were putting in new terminology - some of the mix ups - you don't see near as much of that. So the guys have really taken a hold of the system and really grasped it.
On how RB Malcolm Brown has performed during camp: He's doing well. He's doing really well. He's done a great job with the vets during the summer, learning his plays and his role. Same thing with [freshman RB] Joe Bergeron. Both of the young backs have done a great job thus far.
On how to make a separation in the QB situation: I think you look at who takes care of the ball. Who can make plays off schedule? Who can deliver the ball when somebody is obviously wide open. We want guys that can make throws [and] make the easy plays. But it's really tough to do it in situations where you're not dealing with play clock yet [or] scrimmage situations, red zone situations. You really want to get them in as big of a game atmosphere as you can and see how they handle it - how they manage the game. You know it's not good to just look at completions from 7-on-7 because that's not the way the game's played. Try to see who can get the guys in and out of the huddle. Manage the game. Take care of the ball. Understand money downs. Third downs - that's money - and really just throwing them into the fire and not necessarily looking at completions and attempts. As a coach, you try to install [a] kind of the meat and potatoes first, then you start to get into the situational football. You get into the terminology the first two-three-four-five days, then you start getting into your third down work, your red zone work, your two-minute work and situations that will show you more about a quarterback than just learning the base plays.
On what he knows about the four quarterbacks right now: The thing I know about the four guys is that they're all bright. They've grasped the system. They're hard workers. They've done a great job thus far at taking care of the football. All of them can make the throws that we ask them to make in the offense. Some better than others at times, obviously, but the thing that you really like about all of them is that they've really tried to grasp the system and they seem to have a pretty good understanding of it right now.
On the running back situation: I've seen teams win a lot of games with one or two, and I've seen teams win with four or five. I know this - that the running back position is a very physical position. You're going to take a lot of hits. You're going to need four or five to get through the season. I visited with a coach from North Carolina that played six or seven one year. All of them need to be ready to go at a time, and some of them will just have different roles. Some will be a third-down guy.Some will be a short yardage, goal-line guy. Some will be more of a gadget, loose-play guy. So some will have definite roles, but in terms of first and second down football, you'd like to have probably about three that can roll throughout the game.
On his biggest concern right now: It's really too early to say you have a biggest concern right now. Because we haven't really gotten into pads yet. We haven't put ourselves in a scrimmage situation where you throw them in the stadium, you turn on the lights and go scrimmage and treat it like a game. Right now you're just seeing the guys more or less just learn the basics. We haven't got to those situations where you see a guy maybe get a little nervous or maybe a guy excels. Maybe a guy who's been okay in practice gets into that game situation and really turns it on. So it's a little bit early.
On his impressions of the offensive line: They've done well. Again, it's kind of like every position. There's not near the amount of mental assignments that we had in the spring because it was so new to them. They've done a great job. Just all the details that you're trying to harp on day-to-day - splits, pad level, all those things that [offensive line] coach [Stacy] Searels was trying to get installed with them in the spring. Obviously, he's still working on some of the same things, but you just see a carry over.
On what they'll keep from the Texas offense the last couple of years: Football is football. The isolation play has been around long before [now]. The toss play has been around for a long time. So a lot of plays we run, all the other teams in the country run. You'll see a lot of different flavor. Some window dressing to it, some motions, some shifts some things like that, but you know your “iso” play - Vince Lombardi ran that. So my point is a lot of the same plays are just there in everybody's offense.
On changes to the offensive system: I think you just look at the way the offenses were run and the personnel was run throughout the game. If you want to just look at our offense from last year, we had a set personnel grouping and that personnel grouping just kind of rolled. They rolled through the game. You look at Boise and a guy comes in for this play, another guy comes in for that play. So it's a little bit more specific to the play, and what you're trying to get done. So that's where you'll see some of the differences. The best offenses do create tendencies. The best offenses do create tendencies, and they learn how to counter. They say “Hey, 26 is in the ball game, we're going to give it to him. We're going to give it to him. We're going to give it to him. Then we're not. Now we're going to fake it and go over your head.” The good offenses do create tendencies.
On the differences in QB Garrett Gilbert from last year's camp to this year: I hate to keep giving you all the same answers, but just the familiarity. You see that from a lot of players. Just a lot more confident. You don't see him trying to process things as much because it was so new saying, ”Okay what does this term mean. What does that term mean.” It's just his own language now. It's his first language.
On freshman QB David Ash: He's done a great job. He's done a great job at understanding the scheme. He's a physical specimen.He's a big kid, very strong and has a natural feel to him about the position. He's done really well.
On the wide receivers corps: We've got some great players at wide receiver. Some play makers there. A lot of youth at that position. So in looking at those guys, they'll be a strong point for us.
On if he'd consider playing two quarterbacks: Not right now. We're just looking at all of them trying to see which ones can help our offense move the football right now. We haven't really addressed if we want to play one or two. We're looking to see if we have one that we want to go with.
On if there is a concern about the wideouts and QBs developing in time: Not really. I think sometimes that's a little bit overrated. When you start seeing guys that have a great rapport [they] are ones that have been around for a long time together. Guys like Jordan [Shipley] and Colt [McCoy], Quan [Cosby] and Colt [McCoy]. That's when you start seeing that rapport - guys that have been together a really long time. Just rotating these four guys with these young wide receivers, I don’t think you can say that they've developed a strong bond or rapport with a specific guy.
On if offensive line coach Stacy Searels is now more familiar with his offensive line: He knows exactly what he is working with, and he's doing a great job of creating competition and moving guys around. You know like, “Hey you're going to play center today. No now you're going to play guard because this guy did well.” Really just trying to create a lot of competition and teach at the same time, but also just not letting anybody feel comfortable in one spot.
On if just from watching senior TE Blaine Irby you can tell anything about his history: Well, if you see the knee brace you might [laughs]. He's done a great job. Like you said, we've been in pads before, we have been blocking so he's doing a great job at coming back. I saw him making a diving catch yesterday in practice, and it reminded me of a diving catch for a touchdown he made at UTEP in 2008. So it just makes you feel good to see him making some of the similar plays that he made in 2008.
On senior RB Fozzy Whittaker: He's done well. He's done really well. He's done really well in the offseason. He's got his body bigger and stronger. [strength and conditioning coach] Bennie [Wylie] has done a great job with him. He's worked really hard. He's got the knowledge of a fifth-year senior. One day in shells already, he's done a good job running the football, pass protection and all those things that we expect him to do.
On strength and conditioning coach for football Bennie Wylie: The guys are in great shape. Bennie has done a great job. Not only are they in great physical shape, they're in great mental shape. The guys are enjoying the weight room. He's done a great job. You can tell the team came together over the summer, and that's always the fun part because essentially what the strength coach does is he hands you back your team. He just hands you back your team after two or three months of where you're away from them after spring football. They've come back mentally ready and physically ready.
On if there's a difference in the work ethic and attitude of the players after 2010 season: Oh absolutely. So much has changed that it's kind of forced the change from the standpoint of practice schedules, workout routines [and] meetings. Just things that we've done in our typical daily schedule has helped them put a focus more on what we're doing because they've had to work with the routine.
On the quarterback competition: We've all talked to them about that. [assistant head coach/defensive backs coach] Duane Akina was in a quarterback competition at Washington with Warren Moon. Adam Hall was in a quarterback competition here. I was in a quarterback competition here. So we've all talked to them about that. You don't ever go out on the field and think that it's make or break for yourself. You've got to really look at it from a standpoint of more or less just competing, doing the best you can at mastering the offense, kind of letting the chips fall where they may. But we definitely want to create a big atmosphere in our scrimmages, not just for the quarterback position, but we want to see how the young wideouts, young backs, young offensive linemen, how they all respond in the flow of a game situation.
On how the offensive players are growing: Because you're moving around before the snap of the ball, obviously there's more learning from all skill positions. Shifts. Motions. Alignments. All those type of things. So there's more on their plate, but they've done a great job studying and learning. And we're not having those little administrative penalties, misalignments and things that we saw early in spring. That's more or less what we're getting from those guys in those positions.
On the freshman running backs: Both of those guys have done something special early on, but it's so early, just going into day four. We're just going to be on our second day of shoulder pads and helmets. They're just going into day four install. You've got 25 more practices before we play Rice. It is very early to sit here and kind of give the thumbs up, thumbs down on somebody. There's a lot of football to be learned.
Defensive Coordinator Manny DiazOn the offense's success against the defense:
Well, that’s of practice. When one side is happy the other side isn’t. Of course, we’re going for our small sample size right now. We’ve only been in shoulder pads for one day. A big point of emphasis for us this year is getting our hands on the football, and that’s a battle. That’s what I love about this fall camp. Our offense is dynamic and exciting. They’re on the attack, and our defense is the same way. There’s been great competition out there.
On installing a new defense: Well, the first thing you have to do on defense is get lined up. We’ve got our freshman trying to learn our defense while our offense has tight ends coming out of helicopters and secret holes in the ground. You’re constantly struggling just to give yourself a chance before the play begins. But that makes us better. What we’re trying to sell to our players is that going against them every day in practice prepares us for game situations. You want the games to be mentally easier than the practices, and I think that’s the advantage we have by going against our offense in practice.
On if any players surprised him upon returning from summer: It’s still early for that type of assessment. The thing that gives us more pleasure at this point is that our players, you can tell, have confidence in the scheme. They know what to do. Where, in the spring, we were having to coach them what to do. Now we get to coach them in how to do it, and then even beyond that, why we do it. To me, when they understand those three questions, that’s when we can really master the scheme, and we are getting towards that point now.
On if anyone in the SEC runs a similar offense to Texas': I think we’re unique, so there are probably bits and parts of different people. You might see some of this bunch and of that bunch. I don’t know if there is any one team that would exactly fit the bill. With what Bryan [Harsin] has done and working with Major [Applewhite], they are presenting something to me that from my experience it’s pretty unique. You can see bits and pieces of it in different places, but it’s been fun. The biggest thing is this - is just the attitude. Everyone has been talking about the gimickry. We’re just trying to establish just screwing our cleats in the ground and coming off both sides.
On the physical improvement of the players from the summer: What you can see on our team is our confidence. You can notice it when you put your arm on their shoulder, and you can feel that they are bigger than they were in the spring. There’s a rumor that it’s been hot outside, and our players haven’t blinked at these practices now. So what we’ve really done this week is that we have had half our team out there, so we’re talking about fifty-five guys instead of a hundred and five, or whatever it is, and so really you are getting twice the reps during these practices. And our guys have not blinked. They haven’t complained about a thing, and that comes from confidence. When you have confidence in your conditioning level, and you have confidence in your strength level, you can start to realize that you can accomplish some things that you weren’t sure that you could do before. And that has been a credit to our strength staff and what they did this summer.
On if he has more answers about who will start at corner or defensive tackle: I will say this - we like the way our corners have progressed throughout the summer. I’d say we have a little bit of a three man race between [Adrian] Phillips, [Carrington] Byndom, and [Quandre] Diggs. A.J White has made a lot of improvements as well, and the young guys. And they are new and they are all learning, but Coach [Duane] Akina has done a great job with all those guys and he feels good about the depth that we have. And then it’s the same thing up front. Anything that [defensive tackles] coach [Bo] Davis has with those guys up front, is that we have got numbers. We have contestants in the game. Now what we have to find out is who the winner is. That is what fall camp is all about. That’s why going about an offense that wants to be physical and wants to try and knock you off the ball is that we are going to find out. There’s nowhere to hide. We will have a great sense going into that Rice game who we can really count on, and who can we use on the point of attack because we are getting that every day in practice.
On if a true freshman can play at tackle: There is no doubt. We are an equal opportunity employer. We will play the best players. I am not a good enough coach to not play the best players.
On which defensive tackle came back in the best condition: I am trying to think if I can answer that. I don’t know if I can say if someone stood out. I can say that Greg Daniels is a guy that has changed his body. That is carrying a lot of good muscular weight at this point. To single out one would say that the others aren’t doing that, and that wouldn’t be fair because I don’t think anybody is that far behind. I think they all are working hard. The one thing as a coach is that you always want good competition. That’s what we have, because if the first guy is not doing it, you can say,”Hey, step aside. “ We have great competition there to find a rotation. And like I’ve mentioned before, we’re not looking for two, we’re looking for four. It’s very, very hard to play that position with only two guys. And when I say hard, it’s impossible.
On which quarterbacks have been the hardest to defend: It’s funny you say that because it’s actually my decision which one we play. I don’t think I have enough information yet. I am close, but I’ll let you know. They are all x’s to me. When we are at practice, I am just trying to pay attention to our guys. I am just trying to play an opponent. We try and think of our opponents as nameless and faceless. They are just dots, circles and x’s. So I haven’t noticed, other than they haven’t been throwing us the ball as much as I would like them to.
On if the offensive coaches would consider his opinion on who should start offensively: Just to be nice. We are defensive coaches, so by nature we think we know it all. But no, I absolutely trust the brain power we have over there on that side of the ball. I know that they will do what is best for the team.
On the linebackers: There is an old adage, that your seniors have to be your best players. It just so happens that we have two out of our three linebackers are seniors. Between [Emmanuel] Acho, and [Keenan] Robinson, I can see their confidence in our scheme from leading their workouts. They have done an outstanding job. They have a chance to be a really good tandem. What I am pushing them to is, if you want to be great, then we have to be great. So that’s a fun thing as a coach, because I am not coaching these guys to be game ready. They have been in games. They have been in giant games. Now we are coaching them to be dominating players. That is a constant struggle, because that is a high standard. But they want that. They want that from me. They want me to push them to that standard. I am not sure that they are not capable of playing there. I really feel good about the potential that we have at linebacker, but it’s only potential. We have to go do it.
On LB Jordan Hicks: Jordan Hicks is feeling good. He’s looking good running around out there. He and Demarco Cobbs both give us flexibility at the outside linebacker position, and there is no doubt that they are our top four guys at linebacker right now. Then we are sort of looking for the guys behind them to jump in. I feel good about playing with all four of those guys right now.
On DE Alex Okafor: He is a guy that is very strong. He may be a guy that doesn’t know how strong he is. I think he will get into this season, and I think he will have a very bright future. I think he has a chance to have a great season. I am not sure. I may believe it more than he does. I think he is a great human being. He is a wonderful person. I think he knows that he is a good football player. I don’t even know if he knows how good he can be. Hopefully what happens with guys like that, is that they get into the games, they start to have some success, and they say “Hey, I am not half-bad at this game.” And then all of the sudden they start to realize that they can take their game to another level, and that is what I hope and expect out of Alex.
On the versatility of the defensive end position: It’s a glamour position in this defense, and for sure in this league. Really in any league, but in this league for sure, you got to have defensive ends. The first thing that they can do is rush the passer. It’s a hard duty. It’s a special skill. Everybody can’t do it. They have got to do it. The second thing that we do, because we do some different things, is that they have got to be able to drop into coverage. Our defensive ends can stand up. They can play in space. They can line up in multiple different places. We don’t need to confuse the offense of where they are. But at the same time they have to be great run players. In this day and age, what you have in a spread offense, a defensive end has almost become a linebacker. Because now an offense says, “We can’t block him, so we’ll read him on the zone read game.” Which we get out of the shotgun zone running game. Defensive end, back in the day, they use to run into the offensive tackle over and over again. That’s really not the case now. The defensive ends spend a lot of time now not being blocked. So you have to spend as much of time teaching a defensive end what to do when you are not blocked, as opposed to what you do when you are blocked. So there is a lot to it. It is probably the position in college football that has changed the most on defense in the last fifteen to twenty years, since everybody has gone to the shotgun running game.
On if he looks to the NFL for his defensive strategy: It’s like anything else, and we are coaches, so we are all thieves. We all take what we like. But you still have to make sure that everything can adapt to the college game in two main ways; one - that our kids can learn it on a twenty hour work week, and two - we are a defense, we have to defend what we see. What we see a lot of times is not the same offense that they see in the NFL. So we have to make sure that we are sound versus the option. We have to make sure that we are sound versus the quarterback run game, and those type of deals. It’s fun to say, “Hey let’s do what the Super Bowl champion does.” And there are some elements of that, but you have to make sure that it fits the college game because you have to stop the offenses that we have to stop.
On other defensive ends, besides Alex Okafor: I think Jackson [Jeffcoat] has improved. I think his strength and conditioning level has got better, which is what you would expect. Reggie Wilson has done a good job there behind him. Dravannti Johnson is a guy that has changed his body in the summer time. He is carrying a lot of good weight. You can look at him walking down the hall, and see he has got a lot stronger. I would say all four of those guys have done a great job. Chris Waley is a guy that is so strong and so physical and so much power in his body, he may not even realize how powerful he is. And he could very well get into the mix on our defensive line. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit.
On DT Desmond Jackson: He is a naturally strong human being. What we saw on his high school film was that he is quick and explosive, had great change in direction, and we have seen all of those things. I’ll say this about all of our freshman; they have been practicing a split practice, mostly against other freshman on the offensive side of the ball. Every freshman that we have brought in has shown us already in these three days why we brought them to the University of Texas. Everyone of them. Whether they be in a pass rush drill, in a eleven-on-eleven situation, in seven-on-seven, in pass scale, everyone of those guys has made a play that you go, “Yes, that is why we want that girl here.” So we are very encouraged about our youth. Desmond [Jackson] is just one example of that.
On the depth of the secondary: I think that the word that you said is key - is experienced. We have depth at both. One is experienced depth, and one is not experience. We know that we have to get better at all the positions regardless. There is not one position on the field where we feel we have arrived, that we are good. What we will do at secondary is lean on our more experienced players. We have experience at safety. We have the ability to play our eleven best players, given our situation, and given the offense that we are trying to defend. So I am not discouraged at all with what I see on the outside part of our secondary. But we have to make all of our numbers count. That is what we do as coaches. We get dealt a hand and we have to look at the cards, and we have to find the best play for the cards in our hand, regardless what was the last hand or what might be the next hand. The last thing that I will say on that topic - the uniting topic there is Duane Akina. Because you know what Duane is going to work on with those guys, and how those guys will play for Coach Akina, that we are going to put out a secondary that we feel can compete in this conference.
