If you're having trouble deciphering that, this is clearer: Holliday would prefer not to have to go against it.
"The good thing is, we've had two weeks to prepare," Holliday said. "We had a week where we could actually go out twice padded up; we only planned on going out once full pads, we went twice. We wanted to get live action as far as the chop blocks and all that stuff to go on the perimeter.
"We'll get another day of it [Tuesday], so our kids have had three full days of getting chopped on the perimeter and getting off chop blocks and that type of things.
"It's kind of a fine line there. You don't want to do that every day in practice because you'll lose kids. But you have to do it - it's like anything else, if you don't do it in practice, you can't expect to do it on game day."
Speaking of cornerbacks, Darryl Roberts and Monterius Lovett have been named the defensive game captains. Center Chris Jasperse and running back Essray Taliaferro will represent the offense.
This is the third time in a row Jasperse has been honored, while the others are serving for the second time this season.
Holliday knows UTSA coach Larry Coker from a few West Virginia-Miami games, and from the recruiting trail. He admires the job he has done in building the Roadrunners' program, which is in just their fourth season.
"I think he's done it the right way," Holliday said. "The schedule they took on the first couple of years wasn't the Arizonas and Oklahoma States and all those people. Those kids had a lot of success early. Just pull up the last two years and who they've played, and they're smart.
"A lot of people who start new programs like that, they go off and they play the Alabamas because it's all about money. They destroy their kids' confidence. [Florida International] was a little bit like that early - they were playing Maryland and Alabama and Penn State and all those people. It was all about the money they could make, [but] in the long run they destroyed their kids' confidence.
"This is a confident football team we've got coming in here Saturday, because they've won."
