Longhorns plan to continue drill tackling after defensive struggles in win over Texas Tech


Here are three takeaways from Tom Herman’s appearance on Monday’s Big 12 coaches teleconference.

Tackling work starts now

Texas defensive coordinator Chris Ash’s return to Big 12 play quickly turned into a long day at the office. The Longhorn defense allowed 441 total yards in Saturday’s win over Texas Tech. Poor tackling in the second half allowed the Red Raiders to storm in front late in the fourth quarter.

Herman said that whatever number of missed tackles they had Saturday, it was too many.

“You just practice,” Herman said. “You go through all your tackling drills, you add more into your body of practice. But in 2020 it’s not like we’re going to be lining up against our offense and running full-speed scrimmages just to get better at tackling. So we’ve got to find a way to do it in drill work.”

Ash’s reintroduction to Big 12 offenses didn’t go as planned, but Herman said that he and the defense are committed to improvement.

“Chris and I had been together at Iowa State, so it wasn’t exactly his first go-around in the Big 12,” Herman said. “I think Chris is well aware of the challenges, also well aware of how poorly we played at times in that game against Texas Tech.”

Running back highs and lows

Herman has made clear that the running back room is “by committee,” but junior Keaontay Ingram had the hot hand Saturday.

Ingram carried the ball 12 times for 89 yards and looked comfortable when called on in the second half. Sophomore Roschon Johnson recorded 16 carries, but racked up just 44 yards.

“I did think he adjusted well throughout the game,” Herman said. “Their nose guard is a really good player. … It took us a little bit to kind of figure out how

3.22 g/t Gold Over 63.60 m and 4.61 g/t Gold Over 39.80 m in Same Drill Hole


VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – Great Bear Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Great Bear”) (TSXV: GBR) (OTCQX: GTBAF) today reported results from its ongoing fully funded $21 million exploration program at its 100% owned flagship Dixie Project, in the Red Lake district of Ontario.

Chris Taylor, President and CEO of Great Bear said, “These results again demonstrate the exceptional grade potential and predictability of the LP Fault’s near surface bulk tonnage gold mineralization.  Notably, drill hole BR-166 intersected two wide zones of higher-grade gold mineralization, which combined averaged 3.76 g/t over a total of 103.4 metres at a vertical depth of 95 – 210 metres.  Additionally, the best interval drilled along the eastern portion of the LP Fault grid to date was intersected in drill hole BR-180, which assayed 88.70 g/t gold over 1.35 metres.”

Dixie Project Highlights Include:

  • Drilling continues to define gold mineralization on 50 – 75 metre centres along 5 kilometres of strike length of the LP Fault, to a vertical depth of approximately 500 metres.  All (100%) of the 172 LP Fault drill holes completed to date have successfully intersected the structure and gold mineralization.

  • New results include 4.61 g/t gold over 39.80 metres and 3.22 g/t gold over 63.60 metres on section 20100 towards the middle of the LP Fault zone in drill hole BR-166.  These intervals occur from 117.20 to 157.00 metres and 221.60 to 285.20 metres downhole respectivelyHigh-grade sub intervals include a high strain zone which assayed 28.26 g/t gold over 5.10 metres, including a strongly mineralized core of 121.00 g/t gold over 1.00 metre, and a transposed vein zone which assayed 19.78 g/t gold over 8.90 metresTable 1.
