Leach's goal: Offense installed in 4 practices

Mike Leach and Washington State hit the field for spring practices today, and Leach says it won't take long to install the new offense.

"I think we'll probably have a pretty good semblance of it probably after four practices, the idea is not to make it overcomplicated. The bulk of the time you want to spend developing your skills." 

Leach says that he is looking forward to being back out on the field, but isn't nervous about getting back at it. "It's the same as it always is," he said. "The anxiety would be how can we best teach this and be most efficient with our time."

 

Fedora: "I think their heads are smoking right now"

Larry Fedora and the staff have almost completed their planned offensive and defensive installations for the spring, and Fedora says the new pace has the players heads smoking.

“I think their heads are smoking right now. We’ve had four days of install and we’re throwing everything at them. I think their effort has been really good. Their attitude has been great and their working extremely hard. There’s a lot of frustration and that’s a good thing.

Quarterback Bryn Renner says the pace has been "beyond words", but according to Fedora they're operating at about a 6 on a scale of 1-10.

Fedora said that they have most of their spring installation in at this point, and the rest of the practices will be spent re-teaching things and installing a few things as they go. 

We'll get a firsthand look at the tempo at the Tar Heels spring game, set for April 14.

Saints release official statement

Just a little while ago, the New Orleans Saints released an official statement regarding the NFL's penalties.

The full statement from the organization can be read below.

Today, Commissioner Goodell apprised us of the severe penalties facing our club, as proposed by the NFL.

There is no place for bounties in our league and we reiterate our pledge that this will never happen again.

Skip Holtz impressed with day 1

From the looks of it, Skip Holtz couldn't be much happier with how things went in their first spring practice. 

Holtz said that new defensive coordinator Chris Cosh was very accommodating to the idea of keeping the defensive structure and lingo from last season. A large reason for that was because they both believed it was much easier for Cosh to learn it, than to teach 50 guys something brand new, and Holtz says Cosh has learned it in a hurry.

Holtz comments multiple times how impressed he is with the work ethic, leadership and attitude of this years team.
