Pugh is a MAN. Who was #82 a TE? Entertaining.

Tewes made a nice play on the ball. Good speed too

I believe Dophin was awarded a scholarship after the season. He is in their future plans.

Spring practice blurb:

My take away is the competition. Even at QB. No promises to Rocky

Open to the public? Count me in. Can’t wait to have some pregame cocktails and head into Huskie Stadium to see live sports for the first time since the pandemic began.

What are your thoughts on QB situation? Sounds like competition for starter. Hampton mentioned. Could he be a steal? No senior year ao can't see improvement.

Realistically it will be:

Rocky - Thompson - then one of the freshman depending on situation.

I have to imagine Hampton is one of the best passers on the team already. Not a lot of accuracy in that room right this second...that said guys develop and they could all great passers by now for all we know. I haven’t seen Fletcher throw a pass in college.

My hope is someone bears out Rocky. My reasoning is Rocky is a known quantity, I hope one of the others is a lot better

Reading Hammock's quotes and tweets, I get the impression he is truly excited about this team...

Rocky is still a young QB. I wouldn’t say any of these guys are know. Quantities.

I feel like both Rocky & Thompson are guys I will trust to start games. Let the freshman each get snaps this year. If things don’t go well on offense next season will be a true free for all.

RE: Spring Football is Here !!!
From watching some of those film snippets from practice it looks like the ones at O-line are same as last year, Cox/Champe/Patton/Z/Potter left to right.

The twos look like they might be Buss/Pitcel/Lippe/Vacula/Engstrand left to right.

AVG. 6’4.8” 312lbs.

Speculated Number 2’s
6’6”-315/6’4”-306/6’5”-311/6’4”-321/6’8”-331

AVG. 6’5.4” 316.8lbs.

That’s not small. 05-nono

That group really improved from game 1 to game 6. Lots of work to go, but all you can ask for is improvement.

I think Patton is a guy who really looked a lot better towards the end of the year. I think he can be real good this year. Champe and Potter were also showing some growth the more snaps they got.
