Notes, Stats From August 9 Marshall Workout

Marshall put the first day of pads under its belts with some good hitting and no major injuries. While the coaches are trying to strike a balance between needed hitting and not hitting to injury, the highlight of Saturday's practice was a crack-back block by receiver Bryant Milligan that sprung Darius Passmore for a touchdown during team. Terrell Edwards continued to run well, like he did spring.

Herd Hits For First Time Saturday

Marshall football put on the full pads for the first time on Saturday, August 9, and several hundred Herd fans showed up to watch the "Hoot-N-Holler" drill, usually a first-day highlight. But in an effort to stay away from the kind of injuries Marshall sustained in the 2007 season, "H-N-H" was only seven series and hardly a starter was seen in the drill that resulted in just two scores.
