UW fall camp – practice No. 23

Wyoming practiced for about two hours Friday morning in War Memorial Stadium, its final tune-up before camp ends Saturday with a scrimmage, which starts around 10:30 a.m. Just a reminder that the scrimmage is closed to the public and media so there will be no live updates.

Some of the early drill work Friday involved tackling. Not live tackling, but with tire-shaped figures.  Check some of that out here.

Coach Craig Bohl didn’t have a lot to say after practice. He did say, however, that he hopes to get about 70 plays out of Saturday’s scrimmage — similar to the one last week.

One thing that was interesting about Friday’s practice was a handful of players wore green practice jerseys. Normally, red jerseys mean a player is injured. And for UW, quarterbacks wear blue jerseys meaning they are not allowed to be hit.

But the green jerseys?

“It’s a deal we do when (players) let their teammates down,” Bohl said. “It’s important things for us, but nothing that even comes close to warrant a suspension. Its just doing the right things.”

Here is what Bohl told the media after Friday’s practice.

See Saturday’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang, and log on to wyosports.net for my story on junior running back Brian Hill, and how he kind of feels like he’s being punished during camp. Don’t worry, this is not a bad thing.

On Sunday, I will have a column on my thoughts of the Cowboys coming out of fall camp, along with stats from the final scrimmage. And, WyoSports’ 68-page UW football preview section comes out Sunday in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Laramie Boomerang, so be sure to pick up a copy or two. Hope you are not getting sick of seeing it, but in case you haven’t, here’s the cover of the section which gives you a hint of the theme I tried to follow.
