Welcome to the UB football insider with a landslide holes brought to you by Howard TUV partners new era cap ninety. Pro sports WG RC channel to Pepsi and in part by centauri is pizza buffet grill Kate were. Mass mutual financial handed pitcher. Well I'd beat the pub and grill on trips ago thanks for joining us for that you be put. All insider with bulls that coach Lance like pull my name is Howard Simon and we appreciate you spent some time without that we're gonna spent a half hour talk and football. With the head coach of the bulls huge game coming up Saturday at QB takes on Bowling Green we talking about that the bulls' opening up the Max schedule. Big game KC and the sunshine band showing up performed for the game. Finally they brought in the band I've heard out which is good. And if you'd like to get tickets called UB ticket office you can order online UB bulls dot com or call to pick up 1877. You be there good evening coach like will argue that even our Oreo I've got to get excited because I there's a rumor floating around. That you know the rest of the coaches will be wearing leisure suits with the big shoes and in the crazy hair. You utter Disco since Casey in the such events before except. What crazy here at the light blue leisure suit has got yeah it's dusted off we'll go they'll make that I had one of those sort of guy. I bit the big collar yet with the censured. Yeah. You know let you know and it it and the week you want that to me if you're Vegas you probably still fit in New York. I put on a few pounds I don't think I that it deal is we've got to go with the regular regularly assigned probably. We have a lot to get you in terms of Bowling Green but I I do wanna talk about Nevada the bulls dropping a tough when did about a 2421. Q in Q through the nonconference portion of the schedule. The game that. You know there are some big plays that you gave up but your defense came back plate stronger office got back in the game here it's right there for the taking in the second half just weren't able to finished I guess first off your general assessment of the game against the wolf. Well I think you can't hit it up field especially early hour we are able to get off to a good start having jolt look out of bounce back. From from maybe an off week down not Florida. Well we're able to get. Against hear about it right now wiser into the game planning get him going earlier in probably had his best day. And things are moving well defensively. Gave up some big plays in the first half. You don't it's just matter. They've been most things like this some areas about a guy active in the gap at all possible given up some big things but I thought we settled down. And in the second half defensively. Put ourselves in position to have the ball twice down three that's ball will be asked where unfortunately. Couple untimely turnovers. Asked about the defense in the second half a lot of size of football. Let's pro college high school doesn't matter we talk about adjustments when something happens it won't happen it looked better in the second half now. First up against the that they ran for about 200 yards second half you really shut it down 47 carries 87 yards which is not much. Statistically. This season. UB defense allows an average of 217 in the first half 150 the second half. Is there something few adjustments are what are you doing at halftime in game that could change something in the second well. I I think there's. Summaries of each one of those some I don't want you could say over the air but I think the one that they're related Brian Borland and ballot Bryant now offers part 99 seasons. I think he does a great job of collecting information at halftime. When every when when it deepens the staff gets together they talk about things and think he has pretty good handle on how the opposition is really go about attacking us and sometimes that's the that's the chess game of football day. It takes a quarter quarter half to see what that teams that are due to a packed you and now it's now currently. Now color active I think Brian's done nice job with that. In using our personnel. Really well it is the same thing offensively he hits it there just yet you try to. The other certain things in your game plan that you practice though there's not like you can go in there dance guys they're almost a duplicate plays that they haven't done before you know you have to try to. Stay within the next game plan modify some things in of course you know take what's pretty you know working the best and keep keep the lights. What are the guys on defense that wanna ask you that we brought him up before Boise Ross you broke up for more passes. In the game against that he's now leading the country with twelve passes defended. And I I just would. Stands out about him because. I was gonna answer the question my answer let you do that what stands out about where he rots and why he's so successful. By the breaking up play well. Despite this player in something you guys can probably relate to is there. I think that would stand out like I would minds because I don't like yeah I answer coming up with him but now I. It's no one's. 11 great quality for a for a quarter besides that lyricism is. Is confidence in the short memory and I think he he's a great one net. You know take a chance he's gonna make plays and guys Saunders go he bounces right back up and makes another one. It the other thing that I've noticed it as a really good job of they see you more more being coached and taught him football is because of real good job when he goes in the break up passes in the future gets its hands up in between the receivers hands it. It's his hand in their gets its hands down a lot of balls that's why there's so many past few how much does it help the fact that he was a receiver. It was converted quarterback and does it give them an elected knowledge of that does that help with the position absolute yeah I think you know besides that every person you know what he's been taught but. When you watch. You know whether hips drop in a row or or shoulders column mop thing you know it's a lot lot of different things or or breaking point when guys are. Widening or or or by alignment lot of little things that I think he he knew naturally that he kind of anticipate him. And a great job of how. Or was it for you mentioned this a moment ago for Joseph the cotta to have that bounced back and another couple throws you'd like to have back but he. He had a tough game against Florida Atlantic came back and looked good throwing the ball again against the that. Yet again it Joyce Lotta pride. We know what he's what he's done for this program what he'll continue to do and I think he attacked the weak in the right way. You know it is you're a professional way in like a man who we didn't play well. You make any excuses when I got better and I think we did a great job with game plan giving Matt and and Ron really involved it. You know that the amount of snaps that those three have had together to work builds confidence and and again they all had excellent days. First time in school history Judith to different receivers had ten catches in the same game that's gonna join us in the second segment as you mentioned Ron will be the other I ask you about fresh. Playing freshman. Some coaches are hesitant to do that with true freshman they don't wanna burn the redshirt year at his word about plain young guys. You had on Saturday he played seven true freshman. Eight redshirt freshman that I believe there was at least one play on defense where the entire defense of line were freshman at saint time on the same play out on the field. Is that they are not playing time you try to give them experience with the thought process behind play. Fresh what they've definitely averted and and assertion that the excellent position I think we've talked about it before they have the ability to rotate and keep players fresh but. Duke Wong was was that the latest news that kind of loses redshirt years and we played him in any played well you'll continue to get wrapped seat. He was slow camp by an injury but. As we told his senior group and we've talked about Matt coming out here shortly. Is that we're gonna play this year to win this isn't like we're gonna wait a year five and then that stack of one's talent is well played the best players to create competition. Ideally their you know we hope to be and they went the whole freshman class will be richer than they could have that full year of development. Acclimated to college academic seen a bit to develop more in the weight room. But right now on you know we've we want competition and we we think it's healthy in the programming we're gonna reward anyone who's ready to play. Nonconference portion of the schedule is done now it's that play from here on out to a Q after the un conference. How to feel about your team where they are right now well we talked at our meeting today you know we we have somebody gave me some research there are seventy others. FBS football program right now that have two or more losses on 120 so there's a lot of football to be played. If he if we look at our two losses we can see there's opportunities. We've just got to find a way. To eliminate those timely miscues let it happen and that's a sign maybe of you know what transition of get used to things we've got to find a way to get ourselves over the hump. Com where I loved the portal absolutely and I am I satisfied and not at all but at the same time I'm like where we're. Let's hear UB football insider and Dylan we get back it was a historical day on Saturday at the data for senior tight end Matt wiser.

We are joined by senior Matt liked the let's what you well welcome to the show personal Mac thank you thank you outlook Cuba. Introduce that maybe even get in the first question is why well. While. Yeah are out. Earth good though what does this siren comedies it's now four. Portion of what you're you're comfortable at number bands that he's a communications major you can handle it so you know. Right mr. steals while Matt Wise senior tight end. Pennsylvania. If there is. You know when when you come in I guess according to question would you commit to a new situation like we do this staff. It use it you have Agile product according gain Rahm will be now wiser you find your quality young man who. Are all about the college you know the total student athlete experience they. They they take care they academics or leaders there involved in the community they're doing everything. It's really a coach's dream that you could come in waves with these guys if your upperclassmen. He's helped his transition over wages and and you have a chance to see him play on Saturday. Finally have a chance to really use today we've lost you know race tracks and out the last two games. Really put of work load on on bad. Played but over 75 snaps him to do the what what he did it says it was just remarkable. He set a record I don't know if you guys are both noticed the bat the ten catch 131 yard gain most catches and receiving yards in the game by tight end. In school history you know that. I didn't feel they told me after I graduate this thing but that's pretty awesome thing. You know we were talking in the break about let's mention you know the senior class until you guys eager to win now not here for a long term plan. I've talked to him about winning the players over getting their trust as a senior. What was it like when you know Lance first given to talk to you guys and what what grip Q what stood out as the coach is trying to earn that trust from the senior class which is really important. Yeah trust is definitely important and I think it was obvious when coach lippold came in talked to us just how much he cared about us he came in. He gave us his background I mean obviously his record speaks for itself on Whitewater but more than that. He's just such a personal coach he's there for you he wants you come talk to me he's opened his door to us he said. You're out of any question any problem come talk to mean I'm in my office I'll be here to listen so. He just made it known that he's there for us and that as a player it's really comforting to know that your coach is there for you no matter what. We spent a lot of time with Lance talking about the scheme change on defense how would the office different this year for you guys. You know I don't think it's too much different but often is often you know you throw the ball you're on the ball. But you know we just have so many options with our. Our talent you know we've got great receivers great running back obviously Joseph standing behind me very often the lines though. We just have a lot of options that we're able to go to and utilized. But the tight ends seem more involved statistically the numbers are better than they have ever been. It can seem more involved or have a big role in this office yet definitely coach K talked about it balanced offensive attack in. How he thinks that. The tide in position is a position that can really change a game so. He definitely utilize as us and tries to get us more involved in run game and math looks like plants you have all these weapons you have tight ends you have the wide receivers you have. You don't really good running backs as well I guess it's the old good problem to have what would you if you think about it terms of how you how do you go about getting everybody involved. Well. That's part of all because multiples we can be and the run pass options that are incorporated with the many of our our play calls rock the game give us an opportunity to be you know what hopefully be the right situation. But it was evident to us as we got nervous you know really halfway through spring ball that. We had an advantage. Athletically that's a tight end position. We could create matchups we could. Lot of times when you have too tight ends in the game when when your plane that way and these guys both Matt and Mason have the ability to split out. Picket line have been the backfield they can motion they can do it in there you know. The mental part that's Ruble part of things promoting it shifting and executing they can handle so he gives you so many more options put the stress on these things. You obviously it's the chemistry you have which go with Joseph how important. Is. How do you build I guess that chemistry how important is that chemistry between yourself base that out of the titans and work. You know it's cute a lot of people talk about zone on being roommates that's felt their connection yet but that's senior which show we've all of those that connection. We hang around and they want to be enough though we do all all everything together. Couple guys that like to hang around to beat guys in college so. Does that connection of being friends it. Transitions to the field just comfortable you can understand each other note this is your five for a together though. You know how each other players on the field off field helps to hang out off do you think that's can pay off when it comes the x.s and those that report on the field definitely I mean. We're watching football we're talking about football it is the army did everything we do it it goes back to it's been together in the know each other being comfortable that this is the field. You are seeing. Do you think it all I am I I always it's it to be here seniors over the years. As the games go off the schedule they know. Like goodness number I'm getting to the end here be at each game goes by you ever think about any of that stuff well that does not until maybe the last game of the season. Now you think about it because you just think it's on this opportunity to play the game that you love so we definitely thing about it. More often than not your thing about what's yet to do to get the win. A year. Very good terms of academic academic all Mac majored in communications. How do you balance. The school work and football is big commitment to get your work done obviously the thing you've got practice your look at it film and you got games. He got all that work counts all that stuff out. It's all about time management. Not easy to do. But if something they have to figure out you know. Whether you have class in the morning or class of night after practice you you work the things in that you need to do we've. The system called galaxy that lets us watch film on our own computers the Internet so. That helps us that we don't have to go into the film room to watch film we can watch in between breaks we have during the day that's all about time management finding ways that make it work for you. Islanders watched film that's exactly let's get. Communications major so beyond you being what are you gonna do with your life what's the plan. You know sort of figure that out completely. I think I'd like to work with and college athletics. My opportunity in mind. Time here it's been a blessing I've had a great time so I think out enjoy giving back to other student athletes as on a given a heads up John Fuller and rival for your athletic.

I was apps get down that there's a lot of doubt wolf the other with it now he's working you know even born when they're performing on April you know anything in the Clinton added. There is a huge football game but it gave Mitchell appointment slightly to look at there schedule. Tennessee bill this hurt you in Maryland and they won two road games against the Big Ten that's. That's pretty impressive nonconference schedule I think if you look at anyone across country. You know our group of five conference schools they probably played the most challenging nonconference schedule for report gains. And now their own. And there are very explosive you know it's not to be worried about how many yards they have the game. Going to be picture we just keep onions at that point and we've been talking about it. Yeah they do what they do they do it well they run the Baylor type offense and they are gonna get a lot of please. Rock and that's part of what they're about. We just got to find a way to to make sure that we we. Get stops we need to rally the ball well apple well. Create turnovers but you know statement. One game of hundreds stamps and other game while often its play average ninety snaps that's a lot of snaps and and you mention. The head coach was on our brows that so if they're gonna play that. You know 11000%. Crazy up tempo though little game what. How do you trying to handle that defensively at that tempo. We'll get rejected calls generally noise and what do those allotment to make me pasty. And but you've got to make sure that if you aren't gonna try to disguise and things you just can't be just one thing all they always. On the team that they played it played like a lot of managers go we we have to try to mix things up. We have to make sure we substitute system. Wisely like on our rushed in here and things like that and then where to find a way to keep the pressure on the quarterback. You ever from a fifth employed. This game could be in the thirties forties and be wildly entertaining which I know is Robby nightmares with coaches coaches never like I storing games baseball hockey football that the map. It do you would you actually offered safe balance. Of forty on this one. Well and met the test of this week we talked about it early in camp that's why it's like to meet his game is special because. Yeah defense players who have offered to play which a few years. And there's going to be games where. If you weren't we only get six points or deepened her hold them to you know three or lasted. After today where you know summit score forty or fifty Weaver might waste or if you're sixty. What kind of challenge their quarterback that Johnson has look at it is numbers he's averaging. 442. Passing yards a game leading the country that's pretty gut thirteen touchdowns only two picks. Kind of challenge does is that like that provide for your key here's jail just on numbers on the other thing he's doing pretty well as when something's not there. You know you'll scramble for first down so again. Keeping leverage do the right things her rose almost fate you know. Things can. It make it different that their their number one target. Roger Lewis wide receiver thirty catches 559 yards five putts that's what's your philosophy with a guy like that that good it and number one guy you shall I got like that he does line up your guys left and right deal with a whatever what what you thought just the way they've they've moved you're gonna have to pretty much play you know the regular positions. What they do such a great job is spreading. And lined guys up in different areas. To get them all they're they're gonna punch guys together they're gonna stack and there spread all five you know you're gonna see.
