Friday--April 4th, 2014

I drove down to Amherst to take in last night's practice. If you have a chance to see one I highly recommend it. There's going to be scrimmage Saturday, but the weather is iffy.

The practice was impressive. The energy level was high. There was no screwing around when the coaches weren’t looking. The players on the sideline were talking football.

The coaching staff was positive with lots of "Good Jobs!"--- and an occasional "What the bleep was that?". The whole session was focused and everyone seemed intent on the drills. The speed was impressive; when the RB's or WR's turned on the jets, they really moved.

I have a couple of images up today (memo to self: the anti-shake feature of my new lens works better if it's actually turned on). I hope to have a larger image gallery up tomorrow. Most of the images are closeups. I did not take any of the full unit drills.

OT, but Boston College dips into the MAC for their next basketball coach.

Speaking of the Eagles, we'll probably get to see a lot of BC running back Miles Willis on August 30th.

What time is practice on saturday ? I want to go and see if the coaching has improved. The players on every team say all is great this time of year.

The previous Saturday practice was at 10:00 am. I did not ask the time for this week as I have a conflict for that day.
