In the Bulls? final practice before their departure to Northern Illinois, the team practiced in helmets and shorts. The nearly two-hour practice had various drills with limited contact. Coach Jim Leavitt did at some points comment on the pace of his practicing team.
?As a head football coach, or any coach I guess, you always want guys to fly around and do everything perfect,? Leavitt said. ?So that is probably pretty typical for most coaches. They always want to go 100 miles per hour, full speed and do everything exactly right, or I guess you?re not happy. Today was a little bit slower than what I would have liked, but I just have to believe that they?re ready to go.?
Injuries big and small
Freshman receiver Bruce Gipson was running routes well during Tuesday?s practice. Gipson, who was taken off the field during Monday?s practice, injured his foot after it was stepped on during drills.
Leavitt said he was also happy with the progress of senior cornerback Bernard Brown, who broke his hip in January. Leavitt said Brown would not start, but would play in Thursday?s game.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
