DAY 8: Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said Thursday’s 1½-hour session on the practice field was better than Tuesday's in terms of “a little more passion, a little more energy, a little better execution.”
There was no live work as the Utes prepare for Friday’s scrimmage at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
STANDOUTS: Whittingham said that defensive end Nate Orchard had a good day. He also noted that quarterback Adam Schulz made some nice throws.
NEXT UP: The Utes will hold their first spring scrimmage Friday from 4-6 p.m. Whittingham said it will be important and consist of about 100 snaps.
“We’ve got to start to see some separation at some positions,” he said before specifically identifying battles at quarterback, running back and linebacker.
Whittingham added that the coaches hope to get every player that is practicing into the scrimmage.
“That may not happen, but that’s our objective,” Whittingham explained. “But we certainly want to get a look at everybody who’s challenging for positions for certain, and like I said we have about 100 snaps, and so that should give us an opportunity to see most everybody.”
The scrimmage is open to the public.
