For fans who couldn't make it out to Shotwell Stadium this morning for the annual Purple-White scrimmage, here's an update on the goings-on. Thing about it is, head coach Chris Thomsen doesn't like to put too much information out there about what goes on in the spring. So, the information is a little bit brief.
Just know this, in brief: the quarterback spot is still up in the air, although Zach Stewart threw the ball with the authority on Saturday that we haven't seen since 2008; the secondary is in a flux and will need some transfer help before the start of the 2010 season; coach Thomsen said Aston Whiteside has had his best off-season and spring of his career, which should be causing opposing defensive coordinators across the league to have nightmares right now; and linebacker Fred Thompson is making a smooth transition to defensive end to replace Nick Jones, who has apparently given up football to concentrate on track and field.
* In men's tennis news, the Wildcats knocked off Prairie View A&M, 6-0, this morning before dropping a 7-0 decision to Baylor, which is ranked No. 8 in NCAA Division I.
* The baseball team won the first game of the doubleheader on Saturday, 16-8. More on the doubleheader later tonight.
