Tulsa, OK

Tulsa having one of the best tandems of returning place kicking and punting specialists in college football is made much more interesting considering neither played American football before coming to TU. Zack Long was a soccer player in high school. Lachlan Wilson played Australian Rules Football.

Don’t we have a new coach for special teams ?
I may be wrong, but haven't seen one listed. Thus, it appears that's another point of control for fulfilling the controlling nature for our head coach/offensive coordinator/in game management coordinator/special teams coordinator. Great guy, moral man, and the players love him; just wish he'd learn his lesson and let lose of some of the elements.

Yes no change looks like Calvin Lowry again I hope there is improvement on coverage and returns. We must’ve been near the bottom in the country in those areas

Yes, at or near the bottom for several years in a row on coverage and returns. It baffles me that this hasn't improved. I can think of two important games where this cost us the victory: OSU and MSU.

And when it didn't cost us a game it has put us in some very difficult spots to dig out of or created nail biters when there was zero reason, except for a refusal to prioritize coverage.

At the bowl game the ODU fans couldn’t believe we kicked directly to them. They said they had returned several for TDs that year. If the offense would not have responded in the next series the game may have been a very different one.

Kick coverage has been TU's biggest problem. By far. Would be refreshing to see zero kicks returned for TD's against TU.
