SCRIMMAGE STATISTICS

Tom O'Brien Scrimmage Audio

On today's scrimmage
"It was another tough day out there today. They went hard at it. We are getting to be a more physical football team which we have to be."

On the quarterbacks:
"There's been no decision on the quarterback situation. We are still evaluating and we'll be doing it all the way till we are ready to play South Carolina."

On Antoine Holmes:
"He's done a lot better. I think its a good position for him and he's feeling a lot more comfortable there. He's a very explosive player and I think he's going to help a lot inside."

On improvements this week:
"We really didn't put anything new in [for this practice]. We went back and made sure we didn't make the same mistakes that we made a week ago. There weren't any glaring things that we didn't wrong."

On the play of Dwayne Maddox today (eight tackles, sack)
"He's been at every practice and gotten every rep and he's learned from his mistakes. He got burned a couple of times last week and he corrected those mistakes so he was a better player today."

On the format of Saturday's spring game
"It will be the same as last years. We won't kickoff or kickoff return. We will punt and punt return. We'll play a game pretty much for the half and then we'll play running time for the second half because we are running out of healthy people right now."
