NelsonO shares his observations of today’s practice on the UH football forum.  Here’s an excerpt:

Some observations after Wednesday’s practice at the grass field. Some of the players now have been designated to the scout teams. I don’t want to minimize the importance of the scout team, but if a player has been relegated to the scout team, it is not a good sign for his playing time in the near future.

Going into spring practice, I thought there would be more competition for the #1 QB spot. But actually the real battle is for the back-up QB spot. Shane Austin has closed the gap between himself and Brent Rausch. I’m really surprised at the progress Austin has made.

At running back, all the top candidates are seniors; Leon Wright-Jackson, Inoke Funaki, and Jayson Rego. If granted an additional year of eligibility Daniel Libre, another senior, should be in the conversation. Like Shane Austin, Funaki is really coming on.
