What’s goin on?
Good to get back to UConn Monday with Spring Practice 4. Practices 5 and 6 are going off this week. Saturday is Practice 7. It is open to the media. It is also high school clinic day and if you didn’t get a chance to see Monday’s notebook check out how new UConn coach Bob Diaco would blow the thing out if he could. There just wasn’t enough time to get it all done this year..
Anyway, here’s a few more notes from Monday’s availability with Diaco post Practice 4.
Explosive plays in Diaco’s book: a rush of 10 or more yards and a pass complete for 20 or more.
No scrimmages during the spring: :”Other than Practice 15, we’re not going to have a scrimmage, per se. The practice is too valuable not to practice so during the portion percentage that we’re allowed to have live contact it will always be intermingled in practice. Saturday will be live action. It just will be intermingled in a base practice. And the template for that scrimmage being it’s the first time or that live action – I guess is a better way to say it because when you say scrimmage people have a particular picture in their mind where offense is calling plays, defense is calling defenses and the ball is moving – that will not be the template for the first time we get together. It will be scripted, The ball will be stationary. There will be no real situation that we’re working on at that time. The next time we get together and do that then we will have a ball-movement situation.”
