UH’s D prepares to face option offenses

About devoting a period early in yesterday’s practice to defending the option, which they will face in some of their games early in the season, Mac said:
“We’re not game planning but we just want to get our base option defense in.” (HSB)

HSB Note: “McMackin said Central Arkansas, Washington State and UNLV — the Warriors’ first three opponents — all have a form of an option scheme in their offensive packages. They’ll also face Navy, coached by former UH quarterback Ken Niumatalolo, and its spread option offense in late November. McMackin said the Warriors will put in the basics of its option defense in the spring and continue to review in the fall so it’ll be ready when an option team comes up on the schedule.”

About how they need to work on their defense against the option every week, Mac said:
“We’re playing so many option teams, every week we’ll have at least a 10-minute session on the option.” (HSB)
