The two-and-a-half-hour- practice occurred under cloudy skies, but for the first time, the Tigers played an entire practice without the weather being a factor.
"It was another good day of weather," Head Coach Dabo Swinney said. "It was actually
pretty cool for most of the day after it was very hot during the day. I don't know
if the guys did a rain dance or what, but we had a nice day of weather."
Much of Monday's practice session was spent working on executing in different game
situations, as well as expanding the playbooks on both sides of the football.
"We worked on a lot of third-down stuff today," Swinney said. "We're trying to
install all of the situations we face while still continuing to install on the
offensive and defensive sides. We had a good bit put in on both sides today. We'll
watch the film, but it looked like they handled it fairly well, for the most part."
There were no injuries reported on Monday. Most of the Tigers have final exams on
Tuesday and Wednesday as the second session of summer school is concluded.
"I have been pleased with the team all summer academically. Now they have to finish
strong this week." The fall semester will start on August 24 so the team will have
just football to worry about from August 10-23.
The Tigers practiced in shells on Monday and will do the same on Tuesday.
Wednesday's practice will be the team's first in full pads.
All practices are closed to the public. The team will hold its annual Fan
Appreciation Day on Sunday, August 21 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Day three in the books
