UH Football: Spring Practice


WELCOME BACK TO “LIVING 808”. THE WORD HAS BEGUN. HOURS OF WATCHING FILM. NOW IT’S TIME TO PUT THE WORK ON THE FIELD UNDER HEAD COACH NICK ROLOVICH. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. THANKS FOR STICKING AROUND. I KNOW YOU HAVE A BI AFTERNOON SO THAUFPBG FOR BEING HERE. IT’S BEEN A LONG OFFSEASON. YOU GUYS HAD SOME RECRUITING TO DO. YOU HAD SOME COACHING POSITIONS TO FILL. I LIKE THAT WE TOOK OUR TIME. I GOT SOME OTHER STAFF MEMBERS INVOLVED IN THE HIRES. I THOUGHT WE WERE VERY DILIGENT. I THOUGHT WE WERE THOROUGH AND THE MAIN QUALITY WE WERE LOOKING FOR IS WAS THAT A GOOD PERSON COMMITTED TO MAKING THE YOUNG MEN BETTER PEOPLE. THE TENTH COACH WENT IN THIS YEAR SO YOU CAN ADD TEN ASSISTANT COACHES. WE’LL ADD ONE COACH PROBABLY BY THE END OF THIS WEEK. AND THAT’S GOING TO BE REPLACING THE SPECIAL. THAT’S GOING TO BE A SPECIAL TEAMS JOB. BUT YOU BROUGHT IN THE ASSISTANT HEAD COACH. COACH BAKER DOING A GREAT JOB. DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. TWO GUYS THAT HAVE CONNECTIONS TO HAWAI’I AND GREAT LOVE FOR THIS PLACE. OFFENSIVE LINE PLACE. COACH WEBBER. THAT WAS A PRETTY LONG SEARCH BUT REALLY FEEL GOOD ABOUT HIS NOT ONLY COMMITMENT BUT HIS DESIRE TO MAKE THESE GUYS THE BEST HE CAN MAKE THEM. RICKY. LOVE RICKY. KNEW HIM AS QUALITIES AND D-LINE ALL OVER. WHEN YOU MEET HIM OR AROUND HIM FOR A FEW MINUTES YOU CAN’T HELP BUT FEEL LIKE YOU’RE A BETTER PERSON FOR BEING AROUND HIM. AND THE FIFTH COACH, ANDRE ALLEN. THE GUY WHO COACHED ME, I COACHED WITH HIM. EXTREMELY LOYAL. WAS LOOKING FOR THAT BREAK AND I’M GLAD WE WERE ABLE TO GET IT TO HIM. THE OTHER NEWS THAT’S QUITE BIG. REINSTITUTE THE RUN AND SHOOT. IT’S WHAT COMES OUT OF ME WHEN I TALK. COMING INTO THE SEASON OR INTO THE JOB I MADE THE DECISION TO USE ALL THE PERSONNEL WE HAD TO TRY TO WIN AS MANY GAMES AS WE COULD. LET ME ASK YOU THIS. DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN PLAY FOR THIS OFFENSE? I THINK YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN PLAY. WE’RE GOING TO OBVIOUSLY NEED SOME TO SEE WHAT THESE QBs ARE ABOUT. THESE RECEIVERS KEEP GETTING BETTER AND BETTER. THEY KEEP BUYING IN MORE AND MORE. THE WHOLE TEAM WAS BEST DAY WE’VE HAD IN A WHILE. YOU’RE ONLY ALLOWED 15 DAYS FOR SPRING BALL. YOU’RE BREAKING IT UP THIS SPECIAL WAY. WE’RE GOING TO GO THREE DAYS. MINI CAMP IS MARCH 21ST, 22ND, 23RD. 6:00 A.M. EXCEPT FOR THAT FRIDAY, WE’LL GO UNTIL 7:00 A.M. DO A LITTLE BIT ON THE FIELD AND MOVE UP TO THE GRASS, IF IT’S GOOD. WE’RE GOING TO NEED THE LIGHTS TO START IT. THIS IS BASICALLY FOR CLASS SCHEDULE TO MAKE IT WORK. THREE DAYS TO INSTALL. THEN WE’LL COME BACK EVERY TUESDAY, THURSDAY, SATURDAY IN APRIL. THE REMAINING 12 DAYS FOR SPRING. FOR THE NEXT FOUR WEEKS. DO YOU THINK YOU’LL GET IT ALL DONE BEFORE KICKOFF? GET WHAT DONE? YOU’LL NEVER GET IT ALL DONE BUT THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING TO WORK ON. WILL SPRING BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. YEAH, WE LOVE — THE FIRST TWO SPRINGS HAVE REALLY BEEN ENCOURAGING TO OUR GUYS. ESPECIALLY THE KIDS THAT COME OUT AND LOOK AT THE GUYS AS HEROES AND ROLE MODELS. I THINK THAT’S WHERE THESE GUYS REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WE APPRECIATE IT IT. AND THIS MIGHT GET YOU EXCITED.
