Wow, I've been at practice every day (well nearly every day) for the last 5 weeks and never have I heard it that loud or seen it that intense. Loud not only in terms of players yelling it up and getting hyped for big plays, but even more so loud in terms of some pretty big hits being laid down. Well, on to the notes people.
- Little less yellow today, the non-contacts were: Aire Justin, Anthony Carpenter, Chantz Staden, and Casey Locker. B.J. Guerra was back to his normal place and fully participated today.
- Jared Karstetter was back in full pads today and looked like his normal self. The ankle he rolled on Monday is clearly not bothering him anymore and he should be good to go on Saturday.
- Arthur Burns is clearly not one to let an opportunity pass him by, as he made a few very impressive plays today, putting himself in a good position to possibly see some time this weekend with Montgomery out for the game. One such play was a right-side run off tackle, breaking a Mike Ledgerwood tackle at the LOS and proceeding to shake another potential tackler about 5 yards downfield on the way to a TD. Man is this kid excitable too, getting quite excited after scoring.
- No changes at o-line to mention today, a good thing.
- Looks like Sekope Kaufusi most likely won't be going on Saturday, as he was a non-suit at practice again today.
- Going against the first team defense, Connor Halliday made a perfect throw on a fade route to Austin Ehlo in the end-zone. But the perfect thrown would have meant nothing if not for the spectacular catch Ehlo made, bringing the ball in with one hand (to his outside shoulder) while being taken down to the ground.
- I mentioned the loud hits right? Well, redshirted WR Blair Bomber (a.k.a. Jesus lookalike) was on the receiving end of two of such hits. Once getting sandwiched in between two defenders while going up the middle, and the second time he got blasted by a yellow-jerseyed Locker. After the second hit he stayed down for a few seconds, before proceeding to get up and slowly walk back to the huddle, tough kid.
Physical practice, good or bad for a team that may be a little banged up?
