Quotes from 2010 Spring Practice #6
March 27, 2010
RUSTON, La. - Head coach Sonny Dykes comments on Friday's practice.
"Today was actually one of our cleaner days. Less false starts, less turnovers, a little bit better execution particularly on the offensive side of the ball and that got us rolling. What I like is that the defense played extremely well at the end of practice. It was a day where we traded blows but we got a lot better today. We cut practice back a little bit, trying to freshen up for our scrimmage tomorrow. I like where we are right now and I am excited to see how we perform tomorrow when we go live."
On expectations for Saturday’s scrimmage:
"The most important thing to accomplish is to make sure you make some first downs. That’s the thing that is really critical, making sure you move the football and move the chains. Once you do that, you can start stacking up a bunch of plays as the defense wears down a little bit and the offense builds momentum. That’s when you’re able to score some points and are really able to get into your rhythm. We’ll see if we can get to that point tomorrow. Hopefully both sides of the ball will step up. We’ll go 1s on 1s and 2s on 2s throughout the day. It’ll be interesting to see what happens."
On who stood out Friday:
On the lingering injuries:
"We’re trying to take care of a couple of guys, trying to get them to the scrimmage tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll have a few less guys in the red jerseys tomorrow but we just have to be smart. We have a lot of guys coming off some pretty serious injuries and we need to get them enough work but we also have to take care of them so we don’t have any setbacks. It is always a balancing act, making sure we get enough work but at the same time taking care of them well enough."
