Some notes ...
Gus doesn't seem too shook up about the departures (Nate Craig-Myers, Jayvaughn Myers, Jalen Harris), says probably see more this week from other teams.
Good week of practice, "put the loss behind you."
Praising Arky coach of course, best friends in the coaching profession ...
Says the team has strong senior leadership. Knows how to handle adversity.
Players choose the Captains for the season.
Had good things to say about Deshawn Davis' play.
Mentions penalties as an area needed improvement, said the same thing from earlier, it's on him
Talking about Daniel Carlson (who was released from the Vikings after missing 3 FGs last Sunday) how he will rebound.
Question: What do high school coaches bring to the table, got to be good teachers and adjusting to your talent. Bwwwaaaah, wow he said that.
Has RB rotation changed? Boobie more carries than the others, the hot hand comment. Not much information on the young guys. Usually know after the 4th game.
Next up for TE Tucker Brown, Sal, Samuel.
How vital fast start? Very, didn't do it last week.
Heat wasn't really a factor for players, in shape and ready.
Comment on the players wearing suit and tie for all home games very positive players wanted to do it.
Breakdown Arky, defense lots of returners we will get their best, Chavis DC
Offense Gus knows the QB' dad, good receivers impressed with their 3 TE, got to get turnovers.
What AU needs to do Saturday: Protect football, no turnovers.
What happens to scholarship when player leaves, continue through the end of semester, can't give it to walkons.
He expects to come out like hair is on fire Saturday ... and he's gone that's it.
He didn't look too comfortable sitting at the table.
