The Bulls first scrimmage of training camp, and it wasn't an offensive outburst by any means, with only one 10-points scored off of a touchdown and a field goal on the day. The Bulls had trouble finding a rhythm and didn't get close to scoring through the first half, and all the points came in the second.
Bulls starting quarterback B.J. Daniels started out with a nice running play to the left for 20 yards, but then went on to throw 7-incomplete passes, before completing a 12-yarder to Isaac Virgin. Daniels did do better in the second half and finished going 7-for 22, for around 80 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.
Freshman quarterback Jamius Gunsby made a case to earn the second team quarterback job, throwing a 58-yard deep pass to receiver Faron Hornes who showed great concentration to come down with the ball, leading to the Bulls only touchdown of the day, and completing 12 of 17 passes for around 160 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions.
The defense had a solid day, with the secondary snagging three interceptions on the day, with safety Mistral Raymond picking-off Bobby Eveld and returning it 32-yards early in the scrimmage, and red-shirt freshman Jaquez Jenkins and true freshman Reshard Cliett each picking one as well.
The only other scoring came after running a no huddle offense, driving down to the 20 and attempting a field goal, where both kickers Maikon Bonani, and Eric Schwartz each hitting the 37-yarder, but both kickers showed a strong leg as they could have gone for a lot longer. First scrimmages are usually a little rough and this one was par for the course.Check back later for notes and observations
