Bohl Knows The Cowboys Defense Is Young [VIDEO]
The 2015 season starts Saturday for the Wyoming Cowboys against North Dakota with a 2 p.m. kick-off at War Memorial Stadium.
Wyoming head football coach Craig Bohl knows he h as ayoung football team, especially on the defensive side of the ball. While there's experience up front on the line, the linebacker corps and secondary are rather green in that area.
There's only four returning starters. Only two of them, junior linebacker Lucas Wacha and sophomore cornerback Robert Priester return among the back seven.
Also consider that at linebacker UW has two starters who used to play on offense. Among the Pokes defensive backs, not only is it the first start for three players, but it's also their first career game in a brown and gold uniform.
KOWB's David Settle asked Coach Bohl about his concern with his inexperienced back seven. Bohl stressed it's up to the staff to make sure the players understand their responsibilities and know their assignments.
