'Friday Night Lights' just another practice for UH coach Dana Holgorsen

“I’m going to call it practice No. 13,” said Holgorsen, hired in January to turnaround a UH program coming off two straight mediocre seasons. “We’re not going to keep score. It’s going to be a practice. If people want to come watch practice, then come watch practice. If it doesn’t make sense to them, then don’t come watch practice.”

Holgorsen said the change may be “kind of untraditional, but I don’t care.” Instead he has placed the focus this spring on getting to know his roster and implementing his system, which is expected to feature some type of Air Raid component and a defense that will switch from a three- to four-man front.

“We don’t have spring games here anymore,” Holgorsen said. “I don’t know how else to explain it. I don’t know what a spring game is anymore. I’ve had three spring games cancelled so why have spring games when all they do is get cancelled? I’m about getting good quality work in.”
