Practice Report: 3/23

<b>CORAL GABLES, Fla.</b> - Today's practice was cancelled due to rain. The team began their pre-practice drills and stretched before the lightning sirens went off. Shortly after the team reported to the locker room the rain came down in heavy amounts flooding the practice fields.

WEATHER

Rain, 78 degrees, 100% humidity

HEAD COACH LARRY COKER

*"There was a lot of rain that we got today. We never get this kind of rain in March, really this is more like an August day. There is still water on the field, and we do not play Saturday, so there is no need to press the envelope."

"This was a pretty important day for us. We had a lot of 3rd down plays that we wanted to accomplish today."

"It was a good day for us from the standpoint that we accomplish some things. We had meetings before practice, our sports psychologist met with us and we had meetings after practice."

NOTES

* Rain came at a bad time, as it throws off the rhythm of practice. Miami had three practices, followed by 10 days off due to spring break and now lose a practice.

* Since the team already started spring practices a practice missed due to weather can not be made up.

* The team will hold its practice at Traz Powell Stadium located on the campus of Miami-Dade Community College at 6:00 pm.

* WR Lance Leggett has a sprained ankle and was in a walking boot today.

* CB Carlos Armour is having an MRI and early indications point towards a serious injury.

* WR Sinorice Moss is expected to be back practicing next week.

NEXT PRACTICE
