Chauncey Briggs Q&A
Darius Durall Q&A
Football Practice Notes:— The team was in full pads today.
— A St. Louis Rams scout was out at practice today.
— QB Austin Kent has given up football and left the team. His heart wasn't in it coach Jones said.
— The running backs and linebackers worked on blitz pickups and one on one tackling drills. Pretty spirited from both sides.
— The linebackers worked on fighting off blocks for a couple periods. Tom Mason was unhappy though with the group's energy during that drill saying, "I don't like our demeanor right now."
— Darrell Colbert looks like he's still adjusting to the throws in the playbook. He just seems unsure and it affects his accuracy.
— The quarterbacks were a bit off today and inconsistent in individual period.
— Matt Davis really seems to be fitting in well. He had his arm around Der'rikk Thompson for a bit just talking to him. He also spent a good amount of time talking with coach Morrison while he wasn't getting reps.
— The walk of shame doesn't appear to be happening this year. Kolney Cassel was signaling plays in today.
— Coach Daniels was getting after the whole defense for not going hard enough in live scout. "Fly around and get to the ball!"
— The running backs were all rotating in during scout and getting pretty even reps.
— Neal Burcham was sharp in his short throws today and looked confident overall.
— Zelt Minor saw some extended time with the first team today.
— Cody Rademacher's field goal stats on the day- 1/5 from 50 yards. 1/1 from 45 yards. 7/8 from 40 yards. 1/1 from 35 yards. 1/1 from 30 yards. 1/1 from 25 yards.
— The defense really showed up with energy when it was offense vs. defense.
— Jonathan Yenga almost had a pick on the first play as Burcham threw into blanket coverage.

— Jeremiah Gaines makes nice grab over the middle for 10 yards.
— Cameron Nwosu makes nice hit over the middle breaking up a Burcham to Raheem Malone.

— Anthony Buffini made a nice back of the endzone catch and tapped his toes to make the catch.
— Gaines had a nice catch over the middle for a touchdown in the redzone from Burcham.
