After the practice, head coach Mike Riley talked about the session and his quarterbacks.

“I think the quarterbacks have done a nice job of having a lot to learn and making some plays. I guess it’s remarkably like practice for me, some of it looks good, some of it doesn’t,” he said. “You go back and look at the film, but you know what, for the most part considering learning a new language—even the stuff as simple as a new cadence—I think they have done ok.”

Junior signal-caller Tommy Armstrong sat out of practice with a lower back injury.

“He has had some lower back (spasms) so he has had a hard time, he has struggled through a couple of practices with it, so we just decided to keep him out today,” Riley said.

With spring break looming, Wednesday's practice got a little heated, especially in the trenches between the offensive and defensive line.

“I like the spirit, but I think that you have to practice self-control because that is a penalty plus you get kicked out,” Riley said. “You are just practicing something that is bad for your team, so we don’t have that.”
