    Saturday Scrimmage

    Any thoughts or insights?

    Tyler Horkheimer tweeted:
    ?Mike Leach says K.J. Costello was impressive today during the scrimmage, and he said Will Rogers did an "admirable job."
    "I thought those two had a good scrimmage."

    WR most improved unit. DL is ok need some guys to step up.... D is legit but we need some guys to turn it on...DBs were solid but not great. WR were improved.. OL is the best they have had... QB is solid. No concern.... LB... fast physical. Need to play under control. D intense but need to play more in control.. WR improved... DBs. Better. Need some guys to step up. Better than expected. Did I mention WR impressed....

    Might be an interesting season after all - assuming the early games by other schools don't cause severe Covid outbreaks. The fans certainly aren't separating for the most part (but the band for Texas State is, and they're staying that way - not bunching up).

    Anything more specific than this?

    The defense hasn't been that good. Still learning and short on players. WRs are still inconsistent but will be better than last few years. Watching this SMU/Texas State game, these damn WRs are making some crazy good catches!

    Leach said KJ suffers from "big arm disease" and the objective is for the WRs to have a chance to run with the ball once they catch it.

    Implying KJ needs to put some touch on the ball occasionally so they receivers are not bobbling a hot potato and can get up-field.

    Take this for what it worth but I've heard from a few defensive players that Schrader has looked really good this fall. Arm strength is excellent and has recovered from surgery. Rumor that JoMo S&C program did absolutely nothing to help him rehab his shoulder. Once again take it for what it's worth but it's coming from guys on defense that would know. I think it's gonna be fun interesting season.

    I wouldn’t doubt this. I think Will is probably ahead mentally more than anything but Schrader has a year to catch up to Will in that regard

    More than once Ive heard Leach refer to the QB competition as "KJ, Will (long pause searching to recall names) and the other two."

    Yep

    And he did it again today in his press conference. He did not shut the door on the QB competition but the separation gap widened between the top 2 and the others competeting.

    I'm just hoping that our scheme creates some confusion and turnovers to offset our lack of talent and experience. And that Leach can outscore some people if need be.

    Yeah defense is a work in progress right now. DC appears to be excellent but we got work to do.

    We'll see what happens but I've got no problem having 3 really good qbs on the roster, which it appears we have. Good problem to have.

    Dang man we're playing harder in scrimmages than we did in games last year. Nice to see.

    I keep getting rave reviews about Arnett. But Jinny's and joes are an issue. Not having Lovett is big.

    Yeah I've been hearing the same thing. Players love Arnett and he's sharp and intense. When we get him a little more depth and talent he could be awesome.

    Not having Lovett’s talent does hurt, but Lovett himself may have been a cancer that brought everyone down.

    Just observing Lovett, I’m not sure he would’ve made it under this staff. Not sure their style is his style.

    Perhaps he’ll mature
