Reporters are idiots. Do you need Banks to win the position? Like Sark is going to say yes or no. Do you have a date to name the starting QB? Oh yes, and let me tell you. Idiots.

I watched the Arkansas and OU portions of the video because I’m an empty shell of a human and I need pain to fill that void so at least I feel something.  

It was pretty amazing.  At least when BYU ran on Manny Diaz at will we were doing stupid shit like lining up the entire DL on one side of the center or having everyone stand up in a pass rush look and then randomly blitzing half of them through a gap away from the play while the other half turned their backs to drop.  So, within 2 weeks we were fine on defense again after Greg Robinson stepped in and just stopped doing that stupid shit. But last year we just lined up and got obliterated.  

I think our edge players must exclusively watch film of Breckyn Hager and are basing their run defense off that.  They dash upfield, loop around 10 yards too far outside, get pinned inside, get pushed backward, run to the bathroom, buy popcorn at the concession stand, and basically go absolutely anywhere and everywhere except the place that will actually set an edge to contain an outside running play. And then our DL helps by opening up massive cutback lanes in case the runner has vision problems or gets spooked and mistakenly thinks there was an edge set forcing him to cut back, and our LBs and safeties top it all off by being unable to fill in the right position and weak at tackling. 

I would be ok with 11 new starters on defense.  Play all the freshmen early and often.

You are a better man than I. There is just nothing more demoralizing as a football fan than to watch another team run on your defense with impunity. If I am Bama, I come out and do that until we can consistently stop it. Of course, it’s Bill O’Brien, so there’s a possibility he’ll fuck that up and give us a chance.

Basically, this says that not much has changed, except Ewers and Watts . I hope the OL and front 7 are pissed and can do something about it...

A year more of experience at several positions. Weeding out some bad apples. Potentially fresh outlook. A possible difference make at QB. Some big bodies for OL, assuming a freshman or two are ready (not ideal but could be a big improvement from last years crew). More than one target at WR. Not playing a walk on at LB. At least one DB that can play single coverage.

In addition to Sarkisian, defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski, offensive coordinator Kyle Flood, and special teams coordinator Jeff Banks will be available. Their portions will not be aired on TV or radio.

Updates below…

Steve Sarkisian

-Sarkisian: “It is always a great time of year. I love this. We’re building towards football season. Thirty-two days out, we’re right here at DKR for our home opener, so exciting times.”

-Sarkisian: “Our guys have worked extremely hard through winter conditioning, through spring practice, through our summer conditioning program, and I think they put themselves in a really good position for fall camp.”

-Sarkisian: “Should be a very competitive training camp. I think we’ve got a very competitive roster. We’re young, which a lot of you know. Fifty-seven of our 85 scholarship kids are freshman or sophomores, so we’ve got a lot of growing up to do and we need to grow up quickly. But we are talented and should be competitive camp like I said in all three phases.”

-Sarkisian on quarterbacks, no starter named: “Clearly, there at different phases of their development.” Said Hudson Card needed to develop his comfort level in their system in year two. For Quinn Ewers, it was simply learning the system.

-Sarkisian: “I’m excited for both these guys. Both great teammates, both really coachable, both highly competitive, highly driven young men that both would love the opportunity to take the field when the first team takes the field on September 3rd.”

-Sarkisian: “From a cultural standpoint, from a team bonding standpoint, this is a great challenge for us with 35 new scholarship players, of how close and how tight-knit we can make this team.” — Said he needs to be better at making sure his staff and players are able to respond better to adversity late in games.

-Sarkisian on RB and WR talent, balancing reps: “That’s always a challenge. Those are good problems to have.” — Said preparing everyone to play physically and mentally is one goal, and distributing the football in a way where guys stay hungry and remain committed to one another.

-Sarkisian on defense: “Part of me wants to evaluate the scheme, and what players were in what spots. In a lot of these games, we went through stretches in these games where we played really good defense.” — Said he is looking to find how to create more of those stretches for longer periods of time.

-Sarkisian met with Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay during the summer: “What it did I think for me was reinforce a lot of the things that I believe in.”

-Sarkisian: “I feel like my job when I wake up every morning is to put our players and our staff in the best position to be successful. With all these changes, whether they’re big picture things and things going on in college football, or things down at our level, what we’re doing every day in our facility. I’m constantly evaluating how do we put our players in the best position to be successful.”

-Sarkisian says there isn’t anybody who won’t be able to practice on Wednesday.

-Sarkisian asked if he needs Kelvin Banks to win the starting job: “Not a great question.” — “The reality of it is, we need all of our guys to play at a high level.”

-Sarkisian on if he knows when he may name a starting quarterback: “I think I have an idea in my head, but I’m not going to tell you guys.”

-Sarkisian on defense: “I think we do have a plan in place to improve our level of consistency and play a really cool brand of football from the defensive perspective.”

-Sarkisian said he intentionally had his players run in the afternoons to have an idea of what the heat would be like on the field at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium.

-Sarkisian says he went to Aspen, Northern California, and Laguna Beach: “I didn’t take a whole lot of time off. Quite frankly, this summer, I tried to be in Austin.”

-Sarkisian on Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey: “I love having Tuck in the program.” — Mentions he is a productive player, is good against the run, slippery versus blocks, and has good pass-rush and coverage ability.

Kyle Flood

-Flood: “The more reps, the more times they can hear the playcalls, the more times some how, some way to get the players to try to visualize what they’re doing from an assignment and technique standpoint, no doubt it’s an advantage.”

-Flood said the three traits offensive linemen of any age need are to be tough, smart, and dependable.

-Flood on who his backup center is: “That’s a great question. I’m not sure.”

-Flood says they don’t sacrifice athletic ability for size. Says he needs to have a level of athleticism with the size that “makes them special and gives them an opportunity to progress within our system.”

-Flood: “We’ve got to get production out of the room. Ultimately, will that mean some of the freshman will play? As I tell my players and I tell every recruit, the best five players are going to play, and ultimately where they play will be determined by who the best five players are.”

-Flood: “You have to have the older players in your room step into a leadership role. I do believe Jake (Majors), Junior (Angilau), and Christian, I think those three guys, they do that.”

-Flood said Andrej Karic and Christian Jones had good summers, but “when you’re talking about linemen, you don’t want to make decisions before the pads go on.”

-Flood on some of the O-line breakdowns last year: “From a technique standpoint, we weren’t consistently good enough. There’s no doubt, and it’s been a focal point of the offseason, of being a better pass set team, being better with our hands, making sure that we have an understanding of where the quarterback is in the pocket and where his movements will be if he gets disrupted in the pocket.”

Pete Kwiatkowski

-Kwiatkowski says they were “very inconsistent playing team defense as a whole. We had stretches where we were really good, then for whatever reason, adversity, bad plays in the game, guys get injured, whatever, the wheels fell off.”

-Kwiatkowski on wide zone issues: “Just executing the defenses. Whoever is the force player, whether it’s a secondary player, linebacker, or defensive lineman, doing a better job of getting the ball turned back in.” — Said at certain points, there were players who were not doing their jobs. He used the term “freelancing.” — “A lot of times last year, we would get into those stretches where the wheels were coming off and then guys started pressing and feeling like they had to do more than what they’re supposed to do, then they started guessing or trying to ad lib, and it wasn’t good.”

-Kwiatkowski: “He’s a resource to me and all our coaches. He’s been in the conference for 20-something years. He has the lay of the land in the state of Texas, so there’s a lot of info. that he has brought to the table that’s been invaluable.”

-Kwiatkowski on how to help players fight through the wall or adversity instead of cowering at it: “You make it hard on them. Whether it’s Coach Becton in the weight room or running, you stress the guys physically or mentally. They’ve got to learn how to fight through it, come together, support each other, learn from those mistakes or experiences in the past, and keep moving forward.”

 

-Kwiatkowski: “Overshown is an impact player. He’s a guy that can do some things. Very explosive, fast guy. We’ve got some young guys we’re gonna see what they can do.”

-Kwiatkowski: “I think one of the strengths of our defense is going to be our interior linemen.”

-Kwiatkowski says his edge guys all are twitchy and quick: “They’re quick off the ball. They can change direction. They’re sudden. The good ones, they have power.”

-Kwiatkowski says he feels “okay” about linebacker depth. “We’ve got D-Mo, we’ve got Jaylan Ford who has been awesome. He’s had a really good offseason mentally and physically. We’ve got David Gbenda. Jett Bush moved back to linebacker. We’ve got Tucker-Dorsey, the transfer. I think he’s going to be a welcome addition.”

Jeff Banks

-Banks on the kicking competition: “What we have to do is we have to evaluate the kicking and the punting position with these guys in the next 15-20 days.”

-Banks: “Bert Auburn and Will Stone will be the two guys who will compete for the field goal and kickoff jobs. We have another player named Gabriel Lozano who transferred from Texas Tech who provides some really good stability there. I feel good. We have three legs that I have confidence in.”

-Banks says snapper Zach Edwards had one of the best summers of any specialist he’s had.

-Banks says he is excited about Isaac Pearson. Says he is looking to add a punter from the walk-on ranks.”

-Banks on Morice Blackwell: “I’m fired up about Mo because Mo had a little taste on scout team of playing our offense last year with the talented players we had, and he played downhill and super physical.”

-Banks said Keilan Robinson is 12 to 13 pounds heavier.

-Banks said Brenen Thompson, Savion Red, Jaydon Blue and Tarique Milton could see opportunities at return.

-Banks said they challenged Ja’Tavion Sanders to be more physical in the first 5 practices of spring ball, and they saw him excel in the next 10 practices: “He is a ‘see how I do it, follow me’ guy.”

-Banks says analyst Jeff Crosby “will be a coordinator after this year.” Does depth charts, game plans, etc. — “I want guys who work for me and with me to give me ideas.”

We lost Graham, Ossai and Roach. All dudes other than those 3 weren’t very good at sacking the QB.

I thought Dorbah would be good when he was coming out of high school. Is he still too light to hold up against the run?

Presser replay.

 

Hard to root against him. Seems like a incredibly likable, organized guy. He made a good point about the team getting off to good starts in games. I agree, the game plans were good. Way more enjoyable than nervous, defensive, twitchy coach fuckface.

X-posting because there are very interesting quotes. Kind of paints the picture of who we all expect imo….

 

Steve Sarkisian opens up on the Texas quarterback competition

Justin Wells•about 3 hours

Charles Wright, Hudson Card, and Quinn Ewers (Will Gallagher/Inside Texas)

Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian knows he has a big decision at quarterback for 2022. His two options; the returner in Hudson Card and the newcomer in Quinn Ewers. 

“Clearly, they are at different phases of their development,” said Sarkisian. “Hudson Card needed to develop his comfort level in their system in year two. For Quinn Ewers, it was simply learning the system.” 

[Get a FREE 7-day trial of Inside Texas Plus!]

It’s been a battle since spring ball began. Sarkisian sees the upside in both signal-callers, and believes the competition will only make them stronger. 

“Quinn and Hudson are in a great battle right now,” said Sarkisian. “Hudson has got a little bit more experience and has been in the system for a year. His confidence level is really high, and I’m excited for him. Quinn is a very talented young man. Extremely coachable, great teammate. So, I love where we’re at. I think inevitably at some point in the season, we’re going to need both those guys to help us win a championship. But we’ll find out who it’s going to be in Week 1, and we’ll go from there.”

It’s a good problem to have when you’ve got two highly-rated and talented quarterbacks to choose from in the QB room. 

“I think two things that have stood out to me, in both scrimmages that we’ve had thus far, both guys have played really well,” said Sarkisian. “I’ve been very impressed with their playmaking ability, their ability to take their shots. Not that every throw is perfect, but they’ve been really effective on third down. Both guys have used their legs well.”

Card has the extra year of experience in the system to benefit him, while Ewers is becoming a fast learner.

“I think Hudson, naturally some of the game management things come really natural to him just having been doing it with us,” Sarkisian said at the 2022 Big 12 Media Days last month. “I think Quinn is a very quick study. There’s things that come to him that are new or a situational thing that comes to him that is new. But he really takes the coaching and tries to apply it the next time out. And I think both guys have really earned a lot of respect of their teammates in their approach to their preparation and then ultimately their ability to execute.”

“In the end, from where that position is today from where we were a year ago, I’m really pleased,” said Sarkisian. “I just think we’re at a place right now where we’re playing very good football at that position.”

Does Sarkisian have an idea of when he’d like to name a starting signal-caller for 2022? 

“I have an idea in my mind, but I’m not going to tell you guys.”

No idea why anyone pays attention to any sports press conference. Giant waste of time. Only the dumbest of the dumb say anything remotely interesting and that's very rare so when it happens you'll hear about it and can check it out after the fact

They were not but in 2019 Graham had 3.5 (7 career) and Roach had 3 (8 for his career). They did combine for 21 TFLs that year too. They were better than what was left. Coburn, Ojomo and Sweat I believe combined for 2 sacks and 7 TFLs last year. Add Murphy and you now have 4.5 and 10.5. Thrown in Collins and you’ve got 6.5 and 15.5.

Sweat and Ojomo have combined for 5 career sacks. I think that’s just who these guys are. You can probably throw Coburn in there too. Murphy remains to be seen.

Ossai only had 11 career sacks. We really haven’t been good at getting pressure in several years. That isn’t a PK trend.

There’s more to it than that. He is not even a 3rd down specialist on passing downs. But no idea what his deficiencies are.

With regards to the pass rush, that is my hope for this year. That we can find a guy to get after it on 3rd down passing situations. Just letting Burke jump up and down at the LOS might be more helpful.

The consistent rumor has been that he just doesn’t care enough about football to put in the work necessary to be great.

Given his backstory, a free education at UT probably feels like he’s already won.  West African kids also tend to play school more than American kids.

If true about not caring enough, Dorbah would just be another freakin' no effort failure from the previous regime...
