Scrimmage Report

The final scrimmage of the spring that is not the Green and White game is typically the best one. Today did not disappoint. Not only was the level of play on both sides of the ball a step up from last week, but fans got to see a better look on where certain players may end up on the depth chart before going into summer break.

The weather was great, a little on the cold side, as the temperatures entered the 40's and stayed there with a nice breeze in the first half of the scrimmage. The staff did not waste any time today, getting into scrimmage type of situations within the first twenty minutes of practice. A crowd of a hundred or so Herd fans sat through the winds and enjoyed the practice. I found that most of the fans, myself included, continually looked at the sky, hoping that the clouds would go around the sun, as it seemed the temperature dropped ten degrees as each cloud passed.

The offense got off to a good start, with Cato completing his first four passes. The drive did fizzle before scoring as the starting defense stepped up with a big sack by Jeremiah Taylor. The offense was able to score multiple touchdowns, as was the defense, see the bottom of the article for more in depth breakdown.

The coaching staff stayed off the field a little more today and many of them had their headsets on as they tried to mimic game day scenarios a little more.

Special teams was also on display, and looked relatively solid. Field kicking was on point, as was punting.

Marshall has just three practice sessions remaining. Marshall will go Tuesday and Thursday at 330pm before finishing up with the annual Green and White game next Saturday afternoon.

Early forecasts show the temperatures in the upper 60's next Saturday.
