    Longhorn Blitz: Is coverage or pressure more important to the Texas defense improving?

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 9, 2022 64:29

    Rod Babers, Matt Butler and Jeff Howe are back. On this week's podcast, the guys dive into whether betting on better coverage in the secondary or trying to manufacture a more effective pass rush is the bigger key to fixing the Texas defense in 2022. Head coach Steve Sarkisian has started his offseason comments on improving the defense by playing tighter coverage but is that a gamble that can pay off and allow Pete Kwiatkowski to put a better product on the field in his second season as the unit's coordinator? There's plenty of data to show that focusing on either area is good move considering how much the Longhorns came up short in both areas last season.
