Reaction from Nick Holt

Well, I’m sure everyone wants to know what UW defensive coordinator Nick Holt thought after the game today. He didn’t have long to talk, but here’s what he said:

“They just they got into extra offensive linemen and just kept grinding away and at times we played it correctly and then they popped a bunch of them. And they just kept with it and we couldn’t knock them out of it and then early in the game third downs we didn’t get off the field on third downs so that was really the story there.

“And then you get behind and you can’t get them out of that personnel and they keep pounding you and pounding you and we are not there yet physically in our program with our guys with just staying toe-to-toe consistently. There were some good things but a breakdown here, a breakdown there and they will pop one there. So we’ll learn from it and look at the film and correct it and then we’ve got to move on. … Really, there is no other issue. We’ve just got to play better against the run, make our tackles and get off on third down.”

And here’s the video of Holt:
