    Tom O'Brien Audio


    "It's hard to make evaluations after one day of spring. I'm not going... I think as a team we got out there, we practiced well, we got through a script for the first time since the 13th practice so that was a positive."

    "Today was all about learning. It's instructional again, it's like the first day of spring practice all over again. As you witnessed, a lot of teaching."

    "I thought that they showed up and they made it through the heat. They were conditioned enough to make it through practice so we'll see how we do tomorrow."

    "As I said we got through a script. That's a positive. It took us thirteen practices this spring and the first teamwork we had today we got through all 21 plays. That was good."

    "Hill and Phillips are the only two guys out. I'm not going to answer injury questions everyday."

    "The heat is something they have no control over."

    "Because you're not in any pads, right now is a lot of teaching."

    "We have to settle on a quarterback. The offensive line is an area of concern for us. We lost our all-conference tight end... there are a few concerns on offense. The same thing on defense. Pressley missed all spring, we've got to create some depth and hopefully our linebackers come through for us."
