The first spring game of the Steve Sarkisian era is now in the books. While it was technically a “vanilla” gameplan on both sides of the ball, they didn’t just run inside zone from 12 personnel 50 times into a 4-3 Over backed by cover 1. Each unit ran a variety of base schemes and gave a snapshot into what this team’s strategic identity will be in year one under Sark’s staff.
We didn't get to see as much of our new attack defense as many would like but we put the offense on red alert several times when we dd wheel and deal from a pat hand. I have a feeling some of our best stunts/techniques aren't completely suited to our personnel on hand. I think we will need to recruit future breadwinners (edge comes to mind) that better fit the responsibilities and sound business decisions (LB comes to mind) in order to maximize the productive aspect of each defensive scheme.
Spring football is winding down on the Forty Acres. Which players have made impacts during Steve Sarkisian's first spring with the Longhorns? Plus an explanation behind the coaching styles of Pete Kwiatkowski and Kyle Flood, a five-star OL sets his visit schedule, and recruiting percentages for Chris Beard's top 2022 targets.

Pete Kwiatkowski recently went on the “Make Defense Great Again” podcast, a show by Coach Vass who is a former (maybe future) coach who now spends his time accumulating resources to share with other coaches. It’s amazing Kwiatkowski was willing to go on a publicly available show like this and talk about his defense, major credit to Vass.
