The season opener is three weeks from tomorrow and head coach Craig Bohl said, so far, nobody has been ruled out for the Lafayette game at the Fargodome. No players have left the team and no transfers have joined the team. There have been no position changes, yet.
Kind of boring, isn’t it? “We like it,” Bohl said. “We’re making progress as a football team.”
- Sophomore defensive end Cole Jirik would probably be a starter on most teams in the Missouri Valley. He made a couple of nice plays at practice Friday.
- Somebody put a few quarters into the defense, which cranked up the excitement meter all morning. “We talked about encouragement and taking that onto the field and the next play is going to be yours,” Bohl said. “Certainly, momentum comes into play in college football and you have to recognize that when things don’t go well, you have to find a positive and get back after it the next play.”
- The Blue Angels, practicing for their air show this weekend, made for a nice brief exercise in playing with noise.
- With the team in full pads, punter Matt Voigtlander was back as the full-time punter after one practice as a running back, where he played the previous three years. Running back Sam Ojuri is still out with a concussion.
