Could you give us a run down of the mock game held on Saturday?
Like always we had 140 plays -
it's offensive, defense, special teams. It's all against
Were there any highlights/big plays?
It's a real strange thing if you've never seen it or been around it, because the offense might get a 25 yard gain but the next play is second and 12. We script the whole thing ahead of time. There wasn't anybody that was sensational.
We got live looks at every phase of the kicking game. Our kickers did a good job, Bret Culbertson and Edgar Arceo, both did a real nice job. We script bad plays, we script sudden changes, and we script turnovers even though they don't happen. It's to cover every situation that could come up in a game and definitely a season. We had overtimes had the officials come out and do the flip and take them through all of that.
We had the lights on, get the environment, catch the ball in the lights, catch a punt, catch a kick off, throw the ball in the lights trying to get them as ready as we can.
How did Adam Carper do, I heard he had a pretty good night.
Carp had a real good night, he had
a couple interceptions and again you're going against the scout team trying to
What about some of the other freshmen, did they perform differently under the lights?
You know there weren't a lot of them that played. Singleton was fine he doesn't get shook. He didn't have a different look out there Saturday night than he did first few days of practice. He's a pretty mature kid who's going to play. JC guys you know you except some more maturity with those guys that are playing because they've played in all these games that are college. Even though they're JC they've still played a lot of college games already.
For the other kids it was another evaluation and the things I was most concerned about was effort and mental errors and just not doing stupid things - turnovers or penalties and I thought it was a pretty good work day.
