The football team concluded its spring practices Thursday afternoon with a light session at Spaulding Field.
A few news and notes:
-- The team wore shorts and shoulder pads, with much of the action coming in individual drills. Seniors did not participate, instead wearing T-shirts, shorts and bucket hats (ala defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough). "It was a good intensity," coach Rick Neuheisel said. "We had our seniors kind of coaching it up. They all had whistles and they were excited about that."
-- On a play in the red zone, quarterback Kevin Prince rolled out and threw to tight end Cory Harkey, who just failed to come down with the ball as safety Rahim Moore trailed closely behind. Moore was so ecstatic with his coverage that he proceeded to do a cartwheel.
-- Neuheisel on Saturday's spring game at the Rose Bowl: "I want to see a lights-out scrimmage, everybody flying around, players that we're counting on that maybe haven't played as much to make some big plays. ... When I blow the whistle and say, 'That's enough,' everybody to walk in and nobody in the training room."
-- Saturday's game, which is free to all fans, begins at 7 p.m. The parking lots will open at 3 p.m. (cost to park is $15). After the game, fans can participate in a "Meet the Bruins" session.
