Practice Schedule

For those of you that will be in Oxford over the next several weeks and are wishing football was here. I am posting the practice schedule below. Notice a new twist this year. Coach O and staff will be splitting up freshman and varsity practices. I think this is a good idea. They will be able to give freshmen more hands on experience in the transition, than they could in normal practice. If I am not mistaken Pete Carrol and Nick Saban did the same things. Were these coaches succesful in their plans??? Anyway here it is:

August 6 - Varsity 8:45 a.m. (helmets)Freshmen - 3 p.m. (helmets)
August 7 - Varsity 8:45 a.m. (helmets); frosh 3 p.m. (helmets)
August 8 - Varsity 8:45 a.m. (helmets); frosh 3 p.m. (helmets)
August 9 - Varsity 8:45 a.m. (helmets); frosh 3 p.m. (helmets)
August 10 - Varsity 8:45 a.m. (helmets and shoulder pads); frosh 3 p.m. (helmets and pads)
