Wednesday Video and Practice Notes

The team has a light, shortened, practice consisting mostly of run-throughs for the first team offense and defense on Wednesday. Head Coach Karl Dorrell talks about the three walk-ons who were awarded scholarships for the year and more...

The team had a shortened practice, conducted in jerseys, helmets and shorts, but no pads.

Most of practice was a run-through, practicing substitutions in different situations, along with signaling in plays in different situations for the offense.

They did break out the speakers with the loud crowd noise to simulate a loud game on the road. The question is: What is it necessary when playing at Stanford?

The #1 offense and defense looked sharp against the scout team, as they should. Quarterback Ben Olson looked good, but it was mostly in run-throughs and against the scout team defense.

Receiver Osaar Rasshan was back in his white jersey and out of the red, no-hit one, even though there was no hitting going on in practice anyway.

Dennis Keyes is playing with a fairly bulky splint and bandage on his left wrist.

Josh Edwards, who was awarded a scholarship (Dorrell talks about it in the video linked below), is clearly the second-string weakside linebacker.

Michael Pitre is thought to be out for a good period of time, perhaps a number of games, with the deep bone bruise.

Running back Chane Moline's fractured wrist is healing quicker than expected, and he could be back in time next week for BYU.

Problems Viewing Videos?

If you experience problems viewing Scout videos, here are some solutions for you.

If you use Firefox, Microsoft just released a new plug-in to enable Windows Media Player to work on Firefox. Here's the article: Player for Firefox

There is a link in the article to the plug-in.

Also, if you are using Windows Media Player 11, it is a beta, and fraught with problems. You might want to try to re-install Internet Explorer, and if that doesn't work, re-install Windows Media Player 11.

A reader also said that this K-lite codec pack, the full version, solved all of his video problems: K-lite Codec.

Also, some subscribers have downloaded Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 2 to replace Service Pack 1 and that enabled them to watch video content.

If you're a Mac User, you have two options:

1) If you are running OS X, have the new Flip4Mac plug-in installed, and have Windows Media Player 9 for OS X installed, you must do the following: Open System Preferences, click on the Flip4Mac green icon down in the "Other" section of System Preferences, click on the "Plug In" tab and UNCHECK the "Use Flip4Mac WMV Internet plug in". Close Safari if it is open. Launch Safari again and try the video again. It should fail with a "Safari can't display content on this page" error offering to try to view it with WMP for OS X. Click OK and WMP should launch and successfully play the video.

2) Scout has now added a link to the Media Player popup window that will only display to Mac users. It will enable Mac users to download the video to their hard drives. It will say: "Click here to watch Video" above the existing "Close this window" link. Mac users that have been having video trouble can now click the link and play the video. Your computer might prompt you after you click the link to watch the video, finding the program it needs to play the video on your computer.
