FACING A VERY GOOD TEAM; DID URBAN TALK WITH HOUSTON COACH TOM HERMAN? YOU BET
By Jim Baird | AM Football Briefing | Tuesday, September 13
FACING A VERY GOOD TEAM: Urban on Saturday’s showdown with Oklahoma: “We have to be balanced. You have no chance in this game if you think you’re going to go just pound the ball. Their defensive system is not to allow inside run. Their base defense that they want to install is to negate the run, and so we’re going to have to be very balanced…I’m glad we have two under our belt for the new guys to play a little bit, and got a lot of respect for the personnel. We’re facing a very good team.
DID URBAN TALK WITH HOUSTON COACH TOM HERMAN TO PREP FOR OKLAHOMA? YOU BET: Meyer — “We did talk to Tom. Just got their thoughts on personnel. Because you see what you see on videotape. It was more about personnel because they have a couple of new players as well in the back end of their defense, and what’s their thoughts on the defensive line. Schematically, not as much because we get the same videotape that they have. It was more about their personnel.”
