Segment 1: Jake Lantz from Smoking Musket

Neal Brown Tuesday Presser: (I Like HCNB polo Shirt!)

  • "Not a Funeral, just lost a couple of football games"
  • Below Average performance on Special teams
    • Sumpter
    • Onside kick not well executed
    • Return game blocking was bad
  • Defense worst game of season.
    • Baylor had a good plan on us
    • Upfront was good and getting five wide
    • Lost some upfront battles
    • Lack of takeaways
    • Did not tackle well in space
  • Offense continues to be inconsistent
  • Bye Week comes at a good time. We are beat up and spent
  • HCNB Spent Monday recruiting
  • "We are in the entertainment business and when the product is not good people will complain"
  • Not entertainment for us... It is the coaches livelihood
  • Can't be reactionary
  • Repair what needs to be fixed
  • Reflect, repair, readjust
  • "Not going to be miserable"
  • Hard to lead when things are going poorly. We need leadership from player and coaches.


  • "We made mistakes on all 3 phases"
  • Zach Fraizer is playing winning football... All-Conference Level
  • Greg Hunter asks about "Goose"
    • Goose is a great Leader. As good as skills as anyone in the program
    • Goose has had 2 good Monday practice in a row
    • Game is starting to slow down for him
  • Middleton leaves.
  • Kerry Martin Jr is sick and hasn't practiced in over a week
  • QB talk... Praises Doege and kind of poops on Greene
    • Doege Completed hard against Baylor. Got hit hard, made some smart throw aways.
    • GG improved on the running game... but needs to do what he is coached to do in the passing games
  • Leddie averaging 70yds a game
    • Not doing a good job creating movement and space for him
    • Not doing a good job hitting passes to relax safety's
    • He has left yardage out there too.
  • 32 Available scholarships going into next year is what is looking like for recruiting
    • Greg asks how many transfers vs High School
    • HCNB wants to get HS players and only fill holes with transfers...High School kids will develop better than transfers. Going to have to fill holes in 2ndary and offensive linemen from the portal, but not going to go get 15 from the portal.. just to fill holes.
  • "Did I think that we would be 2-4 no, but I didn't think we would be top of the league by now... No"
    • Twitter conversation about being 'a few plays away from 5-1' is interesting, but it seems just as likely that you could make the argument we could be 1-5.
  • Haven't won a road game since 2019 TCU game (regular season)
    • "Bowl game don't count"
  • Mike Casazza asked "What is on the table"
    • there are things that are negotiable and things that are not
  • HCNB has a pretty hefty buyout...
