Spring Practice Day 9

NelsonO reports on today’s spring practice: Former Coach June Jones preferred to go with four and only four receivers during a game. Under Coach Jones, there was virtually no substitutions at the receiver spots outside of injury or in mop-up situations. I think the new offense may go with substitutions at the WR spots. No shotgun formation yet as the QBs...

Spring Practice Day 8

The big news out of today’s spring practice was that Rocky Savaiigaea will be out around six weeks with a fractured right tibia, an injury which was initially thought to be a sprain. In better news, center John Estes was back to full practice duty after being limited by a tight hamstring. Also from that post, the UH offense put off going into the shotgun...

More on Saturday’s Practice 4/12/08

Adding to NelsonO’s great report: By uhwarriors Dowling is backing up Mouton at left CB. When a nickel defense was used, Mouton played the nickel and Dowling played the corner. Mouton picked Funaki playing the nickel and would have had a TD. Lots of drops by receivers today. I think a lot of the less experienced receivers and new guys are doing a lot of...

I’m not sure if the Warrior defense is really good or the Warrior offense is really…(well, I won’t go there). To be fair to the...

Why the Colt hate?

Chawan Cut posted a rant asking why some so-called “draft experts” are going out of their way to hate on Colt Brennan, when it appears some of them haven’t even seen him play, or seen him work out at the Combine, Pro Day, etc., pulling stuff out of… thin air to bash him with. Here are a few excerpts: these so called “draft...

Thursday’s Warrior Practice

NelsonO has this excellent report from Day 6 of spring practice: Forget the shotgun. During today’s 11-on-11 drill, the QBs took snaps from under center exclusively. And for the curious, the offensive linemen are not in a three-point stance even with the QB under center. I’m happy to report that the offense is actually running the ball during practice. Another...
