Christensen sees room for improvement after Cowboys victory
By Bob Beck
Laramie, Wyo. – As the Wyoming football team gets ready for a difficult test against Texas this week,the squad will spend some time working on fundamentals. That's because, despite beating Southern Utah 28-20 Saturday night, there was a lot that Wyoming Coach Dave Christensen was not happy with.
"First would be tackling, we were pathetic," he said. "So we will change the way we practice now, because we proved we are not very good tacklers, so we will get better at that. Protecting the football, we've got to get better at that. We turned it over twice we didn't get any takeaways. And offensively we have to do a much better job of protecting the Quarterback."
Christensen was also not happy with how the team played the fourth quarter. The good news was that Receiver Zach Bolger caught a pair of touchdown passes and gained 134 yards, and Quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels threw for three touchdowns and 319 yards. But the players say they have a lot of work to do in order to prepare a Texas team ranked in the top five of the country.
