Gameplan: Pete Kwiatkowski’s anti-tempo defense

You don’t want to take too much away from a spring game when it comes to X’s and O’s, but Pete Kwiatkowski showed some interesting dimensions to his defense in Texas' public scrimmage. They were likely to stay in the same personnel package regardless of strategy due to the limitations of the roster when fielding two separate teams, but the first team defense showed a lot different looks from their base nickel personnel.

Gameplan: What the spring game revealed about red zone strategy

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.
