Quoting Head Coach Jim Grobe: "It's hard to tell where we are after one day of contact. We rep everyone, so even the freshmen are getting some looks out there. We have a lot of young guys so there are some mental mistakes right now. It also maks it hard for us to get a consistent look offensively, although I think the No. 1 offense is doing some good things. The defense, while they're making some mistakes, appear on the surface to be a little ahead at this point. I'm really pleased with the way were competing. We have a lot of guys out there who are trying to earn a starting position and that's only going to make us better."
Quoting Linebacker Kellen Brantley: On the first day of contact: "It felt good. There was more excitement in the air. Even when you felt too tired to go that extra inch, you still wanted to go all out. Even though it wasn't a full scrimmage, it felt like it. Everyone had extra energy. There was a definite feeling of competition in the air."
