One Down and Fourteen to Go

Well like everyone else, I dove into the wide selection of articles and video chronicling the first day of spring practice. NDNation has a pretty good list. I came away with the following:

Practice appears to be a cross between a Chinese fire drill and a well orchestrated version of the keystone cops. Tempo, pace, fast were common words. The end result is not to blow games in the fourth quarter and have plenty left in the gas tank. After watching the self destruction at the end of last year, you don't have to convince me.

The media gets 45 minutes viewing practice instead of the Weis era 20 to gather material for articles. Guess that makes for a friendlier media and a longer honeymoon period.

Less stretching, less talking between the players discussing who scored last night with a cheerleader, and much more intense drills.

Eric Maust chose pitching over punting this spring. If he doesn’t get drafted as a pitcher he may come back for a fifth year. Why bother? Neither Eric or young Turk impressed me last year.
