Skip Holtz says 3 plays separate Bulls from 6-1 record
- by Administrator 3 years ago
Skip Holtz is ready for the stretch run in his first season as the South Florida head coach. The Bulls are 4-3 with games remaining against Rutgers, at Louisville, Pitt, at Miami (FL), and UCONN.
Coming off a huge road win at Cincinnati, Holtz said, “They have remained extremely determined and passionate about getting this thing done. I talked to them tonight about how we’ve played 1171 plays thus far this year when you look at offense, defense, special teams, everything included. And really you are 3 plays from being 6-1 and 3-0 in the league. 3 plays separate you from 4-3 and 6-1.”
“What I want to make sure, at the end of the year, over the next five games, we’re not sitting here with the same regret as we are sitting here with at the halfway point. I’ve told them if you don’t like where you are, then change it. Let’s quit turning the ball over. Let’s start playing a little bit smarter.”
South Florida is 62th nationally in turnovers lost (13) and 87th nationally in turnover margin (-0.43).
