Being discouraged during the first part of spring practice when you can’t even watch the practices is a bit premature.  I’m going to save my discouragement for the Alabama game.  Until then orange koolaid. Remember we have a stacked running back room. RoJo, Bijan, Blue. And I almost forgot Kieran Robinson. We may have the deepest running back room in the country. 
 

See.  There’s some orange koolaid. 

Running backs play defense? Damn, I learned something today. PK is the heralded Defensive Coordinator. He way underperformed last season. While you are correct that it's too early to make a decision on PK, another defensive meltdown during the next season would be a reason to send him packing, much like Mack sent Manny iaz packing after BYU ran wild through our defense in the second game of the season.

Didn’t say that. Didn’t intimate it. You were responding to a post on how the running game ran wild in practice. I was saying we may have the best running back room in the country.

And if we keep firing coordinators every year or so (we’ve had 6 in the last ten years, 7 if you count when Charlie Strong took over his last year), our defense will probably always have problems.

This.

And I think we have the best RB room since Priest Holmes, Ricky Williams, Shon Mitchell wore the burnt orange.

Omg, I remember John.  His family (and him) lived next door to one of my HS school girlfriends.  I remember the night I first met him. I was over at my girlfriends house around Christmas time and there was a bad accident right outside on the main road (road to Comfort, Tx).  We all went outside to see it and that's when i first met John.  The interesting point to the whole story is that while I was hanging outside with John, I had no idea that my brother was in the car accident (his girlfriends mother car).  He wasn't seriously hurt, but his girlfriend was.  Wow, I forgot about that night.

Is there any reporting or notes on today's practice / scrimmage?

paraphrasing from TFB

– This was the sixth practice

– Ran 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams through 45 mins of live scrimmage.

– Both offense and defense had their moments, big plays. Offense had several long TD passes. Defense had a pick six.

– Defense won the end of practice red zone scrimmage. Offense had to do push ups.

– No additional injuries. Omeire still suiting out but not playing. Juan Davis in the same boat. Murph is out of his boot but not playing yet.

– Below has been the OL starters in the last couple of days and was how it was today:

  • LT — Andrej Karic
  • LG — Junior Angilau
  • C — Jake Majors
  • RG — Hayden Conner
  • RT — Christian Jones

 

– Lots of moving around, mixing and matching going on. But the starters are starting to solidified.

– Collins and Finkley manned the DE spots. Sweat and Coburn were inside. Sorrell and Ovie were getting reps at DE, too.

– Still experimenting at LB, different combinations.

– The secondary:

  • CB – D’Shawn Jamison
  • CB – Ryan Watts
  • nCB – Jahdae Barron
  • S – Anthony Cook
  • S – Kitan Crawford

– Terrance Brooks and Jamier Johnson were getting reps at CB, too.

– Card had a good showing today. Had a nice pass to Worthy for a score. Was a perfect pass.

– Ewers had some impressive plays. Long completion to newbie Nayor on a flag route. Ewers also had a go route pass for a TD.

– Watts had a pick six . . . a Ewers pass.

– In two TE personnel, it was Sanders and Billingsley in that set.

– Abiara got a sack.
