Holtz brings Bulls to Vero Beach for 12 days

Skip Holtz is taking his team to Vero Beach for 12 days of camp to help build team unity.

Quoting Skip Holtz: "Right now, having a little bit of that cloud (over the program), I don't think has necessarily been a bad thing as we went into winter workouts, and we went into spring practice, and we went into summer. But what I've got to do a great job of now as head coach - and that is one of the reasons why I think taking this team away to camp is such an important part of it - we've got to come together as a team. "It's time to move forward." 

"There was an awful lot of adversity in the program. I don't think you can come in and tell your players, 'Ah, grow up, toughen up, get over it.' There was some healing that needed to go on and we needed to be sympathetic to what that football team went through at the end of the year."

"I think this is exactly what the team needs right now. We are not where we need to be right now as far as close enough as a football team to go through a season that we're about to go through. We've got to get some different personalities to come all together. We've got to come out of there as one team.”
