Week 2 is well underway for the Bobcats as they continue their quest for another solid season in the Sun Belt Conference. Now moving to a two-a-day style schedule, it’s clear the ‘Cats are ramping up preparation. Opening day is only 17 days away.
“I think we had two good quality practices” Coach Franchione said after practice. “We got a lot done this morning, finished installation for the most part.”
The Bobcats were in shirts and shorts for the evening practice and focused on their passing game. “The receivers did not have a good morning” stated Coach Fran. “But they come back tonight and made up for it. They got open, ran good routes, quarterbacks got it to them, the protection held up and that was nice to see. Hard to get open on Mims and Mager though.”
It was the defense who shined for most of practice, holding the offense to just one touchdown and a lone field goal attempt that clanked off the right post. Jones had a nice scramble to find TE Brad Miller but it looked like the defense got to him first. There has been notable improvement on both sides of the field as both the offense and defense are making improvements daily. And with the offensive install nearly complete, it’s time for the Bobcats to put a little polish on as the approach their first game of the season.
