Practice ends in a skirmish

It was windy, chilly and cold in Westwood yesterday's practice, but by the end of the day tempers between the offense defense became a little hot. The end result was a little skirmish that put an end to practice. At the end of practice, offensive coordinator, Norm Chow gave his side of the ball a little bit of tough love.

The defense is getting better and better making it harder on the offense, but the offense needs to concentrate more and play with the same intensity and emotion that the defense is displaying.

There was a glimpse of that when Kevin Prince made a great toss that only Terrence Austin could catch and he made a spectacular for touchdown.

What made this play somewhat of an eye opener and you hope to see more of it because it was a perfectly executed play. Alterraun Verner had great coverage on the play.

Another offensive highlight was a tough approximately five-yard touchdown run by Johnathan Franklin.

As always Coach Rick Neuheisel met with the media after practice to discuss what had transpired.

Neuheisel: "It's good to have a little skirmish, but you have to remind them that you can't lose your temper. That can cost us a game, especially in the situation, we were dealing with overtime and obviously they lost it and it got personal and it resulted in a scuffle, but you like that they're passionate and now we just have to channel it, but it was a good practice. It was a real good practice.
