    UL Football Hudspeth laments missed opportunities

    UL When he looked at the game film from last week's 32-25 loss to South Alabama, two words started circulating in Louisiana football coach Mark Hudspeth's mind: Missed opportunities. There were a lot of them, and they were easy to identify...

    Players dropping passes is a direct result of the QB confusion created early in the season by this coaching staff. We needed to be a passing based program this year, and Hud blew it.

    And Hud almost admits to having blown our defense up... but his language doesn't seem to get to the root of the issue. You do not tell players to "create turnovers". You teach them how to tackle. When they all know how to tackle, you teach the specific methods and opportunities where specific contact may create a turnover.

    Hud mentions turnovers way too often to the press. It only stands to reason that he does it too often with the players. Harping on "turnovers" is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of anyway.

    We would have beaten USA with only one thing being different: The coaching staff completely eliminating the "turnover nonsense" and sticking to teaching basic tackling.

    Peanut Tillman is the most prolific turnover creater in the history of the NFL. I have never seen him flat out miss a tackle.

    Fans can lament missed opportunities. Coaches cannot. Coaches have to take responsibility for them.

    He knows "where" to wrap up.

    Peanut doesn't strip. He punches the ball out, sometimes as he is wrapping up, sometimes as the player is being wrapped up by someone else. It really is a talent some players just excel at doing.

    There is no question that if we don't foolishly try to "create turnovers", we win that game.
