Quotes from 2010 Spring Practice #1
March 17, 2010
RUSTON, La. - "I thought we bounced around, practiced hard and really concentrated well today. I was really pleased for the first day. It's like I told them [the team], we set the bar high today and we need to keep building on it. We made a lot of mistakes- millions of mistakes - but we'll get those cleaned up. The thing I liked was the effort, I thought it was tremendous. I liked the way we worked and focused. I liked the way we practiced today."
"I thought our defense looked solid. They knew what to do and it showed we have some speed on that side of the ball. I think we have a lot of skill, offensively. That is one thing that I have been really impressed with - the number of skill position players that we have with a lot of talent. Now, they are raw. We will have to do a really good job of developing them and bringing them along, but we have some guys that have a chance to be pretty exciting players."
"We tried to throw as much as we could at the players today and made it just like a regular practice. We'll throw another third of the offense at them on Friday. What happens, just like with everything, is that they start to get a little mentally tired and worn out and start busting a bit more. The big thing that we need to do with this football team is finish. We need to finish our practice a little better than we did today. It looked like we got a little tired and we didn't finish as strong as we should have but I thought it was a good day."
