Good oner Pete! I know Bradwell and the new Fullback will be glad to open things up for the backs as possible receivers.

The more we hear about the offense the more excited I get for the season. I would love for us to make a statement and hang 40 on a “good” FIU team. The next 22 days can’t get go by fast enough.

I just got out of a 3 year coma. How is Tanner Lee looking so far? Hoping this is the year he turns the corner.

Practice report:

It was a nice night with a good northerly breeze blowing. Donors were invited out. There were Refs. The players were in shells ( helmets and shoulder pads). The linemen were engaging but the ball carriers were just being touched.

The kickers came out early. Ryan Wright had Eatherly snapping to him from the north 50. He hit punts of 55,50, 50,57 and 50. They all had good hang time. Glover then had Eatherly snap to him to kick two attempts from 45 yards out from the left hash. He made both.

There was an agility drill by the defense at the north 5 and they had to scoop and score. I didn't see anyone mess up during the course of it. that would end with a staffer rolling a fumble at them

On the opposite end of the field the offense had the QB's taking snaps from under center at the south 10. They were then handing off to the backs who then would run it into the end zone. I didn't witness any miscues during that ball handling drill.

Before I give you the scrimmage notes you have to understand WF doesn't just let the drive flow. No matter the result he'll just say what he wants the next play situation to be. In other words on first down you could gain 8 yards but he'll tell them to make it second and 5. Between that and the tempo, which was fast, it makes it hard to keep up.

The first series started at the north 25 going south. On offense the line was left to right`- Tyler Johnson, Dublin,Montano, Knutson and Claybrook. On some series McLeod would go in at RG. The D was Patrick Johnson, Jeff Johnson, Williams and Sample on the line, Quentin Brown and Graham were at LB and the CB's were Keyes and Joyce with Keurchen and Brooks. Hall would also go with the one's on some series. Barge was the NB. Bradwell carried up the middle for 4 yards. McMillan threw short incomplete. He then hit Mooney for 5. He then scrambled for 2. The drive ended with him throwing incomplete on a deep ball which became a theme.

Howard came in with the two's . Left to right it was Shafter , Lewrenz, Haynesworth, Knutson and McLeod.The D was Hatcher, Thomas, James and Hinton. Howard was sacked, then threw incomplete to the left. Dauphine then broke a 10 yard run to left on the outside. He then hit Mooney for three on the left. Shafter went offsides. He finished by scrambling for 5.

The ones went back in. Jones ran right for 4 and then left for 6. He threw to Mooney for one yard. Keyes then had a PBU . The FG unit came in. Glover attempted it from 44 yards on the left hash. He missed to the right and it may have been a little short.

Daniels came in He was sacked and eventually threw an interception that was picked off by Sean Harper. McMillan replaced him and scrambled left throwing incomplete into the end zone to a well covered Mooney. Bradwell ran for 2. Glover made a FG from 37 on the right hash. He drilled this one.

Howard came back in with the two's and started at the south 39 going south. He threw a pretty pass to Huderson in the flat for 20 yards. Huderson then ran left for 5. He then hit Vallien for 6 over the middle. He then hit Booker for 5 to the left .

McMillan and the ones came back in from the north 45 going north. He threw a poor pass that the wide receiver did a good job of leaping and knocking the ball away from the DB preventing an interception. Bradwell went for no gain up the middle. He then threw incomplete to Mooney. He hit Huderson for 5but if contact was allowed Huderson would have been destroyed by the oncoming defender.

Howard came in and started the series at the south 35 going north. Dauphine ran for 3. He then scrambled left and under pressure from Hinton he threw it away. He then hit Booker for 5. Glover came in and tried a 31 yarder from the left hash. He shanked it left. Montano was extremely late coming out to be on the line. There were maybe 4 seconds left when he got set. Fritz, who uses a mic, called him out by saying there it's the same FG team every time so you know who you are,

A live punting drill was next Full units were out on both sides. Wright kicked from the south 17. Robertson was back to field it. He hit a 56 yarder with good hang time. No return. He then kicked from the north 38 and it hit at the south 25 and rolled to the 9 for 53 yards and no return by Jha'Quan Jackson.

Neenan then hit a 53 yarder but had poor hang time and Jones made a 10 yard return. He then kicked from the north 33 and hit a 30 yarder.

Mcmillan came in and hit Vallien for 10. Bradwell had no gain and the McMillan threw incomplete to Robertson.

After the three's came in for a series McMillan came back in starting at the south 35 going south. He then threw a poor pass incomplete to Vallien over the middle. PJ Hall then had a nice PBU. He was then sacked by Monjarres. McMillan then scrambled for 10. He then threw incomplete to Robertson who was well covered in the middle of the end zone. Lover then hit a 33 yarder from the right hash.

Howard came in at the north 45. He scrambled left for no gain. Booker ran left for no gain. He then threw to Booker for 9. Keurschen then intercepted him. The offense kept the ball. He dropped the ball while scrambling right. Pass to Jones gained 6. Macon Clark hit Jones hard and he flew to the ground.

McMillan and the ones came back. Started at the south 40 going south. He threw deep to Huderson but he hung it in the air and the DB's were able to close and clobbered Hud for an incompletion. Jones then caught a pass for 5. Stockwell tried a 43 yarder from the right hash that he missed.

McMillan came back in. They were starting at the south 25 going north.He was sacked by Sample. He then hit Vallien with a nice 30 yard pass He was then sacked by Williams. He then threw three straight incompletions with the first two under pressure.

Howard and the two's came back in. started at the south 29 going north. He hit a well covered Tyrick James for 6 yards with a nice pass. He then threw it away under pressure. On the next play he scrambled for 25. He threw to James again to the left sideline. James didn't make much effort and it fell incomplete. He then threw it away under pressure. On his last play he scrambled right under pressure and threw it away.

Live Kick-offs were next. Stockwell went first from the north 35. He hit it to the 10 on the right and Jones made a 30 yard run back. Glover then kicked to the one and Jones returned it to the twenty. Randy Harvey kicked it to the 10 and Spears ran it out to the 30.

After two hours it was over. The defense dominated. Scrimmages can be like that with one side dominating. It's also hard to tell without real tackling. With people in attendance I would think Fritz held the offense back from showing a lot.

Injury report- In skeleton drills very early on Conner Richardson hurt his right knee. It looked bad. He couldn't put any weight on it as he was helped from the south end zone back to the middle of the sideline to be put on a table. He eventually was taken off on a golf cart with the knee iced own. Tyrek Pressley, Sorell Brown , Jackel and Keitha Jones were just out there with their jersey's on and did not participate.

Everyone there will go to sleep with the words "Find the ball" ringing in their ears as WF said it constantly at the end of plays.

Thank you for the report. Not as awful as past years, but that report should make everyone more hesitant about bold FIU predictions. Scrimmages are sloppy. But man a bunch of shanked FG’s and sloppy inefficient passing sounds like too much of the same. I’ll have nightmares tonight. Hoping that our Top 10 all world (#1 G5) Dline is the genesis of some of the problems (please god let that be the case). This was sobering. Hope springs eternal . . . Until a scrimmage report 🤮

Great job with the practice report winwave! As always, you do a great job when you get to see scrimmages. From reading your report it sounds like the offense needs a lot of work. McMillan and our other QB's are not very accurate (see his stats from last year) and that needs to improve dramatically. Our D will be very good, but we may have to resort to running the ball frequently if we cannot complete 60% of our passes.

Winwave, do you think it was a case of our D dominating or our O just not there yet? The kicking game sounds like it's still inconsistent as well.

As noted in the report sometimes one side will dominate a particular scrimmage and the next time out it reverses. It happened with LSU's first two scrimmages this fall. Their D dominated the first one and the offense bounced back in the next one. Also they weren't in full pads so hard to judge how some things would have played out. Then throw in the fact that Fritz is extremely secretive and he knew it was an open practice and some things may have been held back. So I'd take it with a huge grain of salt.

Meant to mention this. On the concourse behind the Glazer Club seating there is a temporary weight room set up behind a wall of chain linked fences. Maybe that's due to construction on the expansion of the weight room in Wilson.

I hope McMillan is in the NFL in 10 years! That would mean he improved tremendously from last year to this year, otherwise he doesn't get a sniff of the NFL.
