Football Links: Defense Will Respond
With a bye this week, the Washington football program has made a few tweaks to their practice schedule. The biggest change was the early start time (10 a.m.). Another has been Coach Steve Sarkisian's effort to go "live" during a few more of the drills. This means game-like situations, with the contact and the intensity ratcheted up to a high level.
On Wednesday, the media had access to the team's "big" players, along with defensive coordinator Nick Holt, who wants a better effort from his troops when the team travels down to face USC on Oct. 2.
"No, I think we can be more physical and we are a more physical team than what we showed," Holt said.
After breaking down the film, Holt said that while the Huskies took a few knocks playing their freshmen, the lack of physicality was what ultimately did the Huskies in.
