UofL FOOTBALL | Newcomers adjusting to speed of U of L practices
08/05/2016 03:18 PM
The first week of preseason football camp for the University of Louisville features split practices between the team newcomers who practice in the morning, and the veterans who take the field in the afternoon. Think of the newcomer practices as a crash course in the world of college football. The players get dozens of plays dropped on them in a matter of days, and the pace of college practice is more demanding then any of their high schools.
The idea is that when the rookies and vets team up this weekend, the newcomers will understand the coaching style and expectations of Petrino and his staff, but the first few practices are always tough for the new players.
