You just knew that our defensive troops would show up ready to play after spending all last week with coach Chizik. We brought tremendous pressure from our front four all night to force an outmanned Owl unit into a night where most everything went wrong. We scored a defensive td with a sack and strip and two td's on punt returns but lost one due to a penalty. We accomplished one feat that was a first for me--all four DL made the tackle on the same screen pass. We were relentless in our intensity and reduced our missed tackles with a determined effort to show strong improvement.
The Coaches Corner is available exclusively to InsideTexas.com subscribers. The forum is a place to ask questions of our resident coaches and talk about Xs and Os, schemes, gameplans, offensive and defensive theories, etc. Basically, it is a teaching and learning forum to make us all more knowledgable football fans, both in general and specifically about the Longhorn football team. Venable spent 30 years as the DC and LB coach at five Texas high schools (Lancaster, Duncanville, Pasadena Sam Rayburn, Carrollton Turner, and The Colony) before retiring in 2000.
