Skip Holtz put his team through a 170 scrimmage on Saturday. The Bulls have 39 practices remaining before heading to South Bend to play Notre Dame in the season-opener. (Who is Dr. Lou going to pick?)
Holtz said, “I wanted to make sure we got a great evaluation of some of the young guys and redshirts. This wasn’t a scheme scrimmage. This was about personnel. We’ll probably release a depth chart by Tuesday or Wednesday.”
“This was a physical day for them. They will be sore.”
“We are light years from where we where a year ago.”
Defensive coordinator Mark Snyder said, “We are nowhere near where we need to be. The overall tackling is just not where we need to be. The bar has been risen and we are going to push to get there.”
Offensive coordinator Todd Fitch echoed the theme of the day by adding, “We are way ahead of a year ago, but not where we want to be.”
