There’s a certain logic to this – if the HUNH generates more plays for an offense in a game, then going hurry up in practice should generate more reps for players. Which is what it sounds like is happening in the first couple of days of spring practice.
Moore was skeptical when he was told that pretty much every player would get the same amount of reps under the new practice format.
“I didn’t believe him at first,” Moore said. “Sure enough everybody’s getting the same amount of reps. It’s crazy, man, because everything is so fast-paced now. I’m still getting used to it.
If that’s the case, there’s a lot to like about it. More reps means more data for the coaches to use in evaluating the players. More reps give the players greater opportunity to grasp what the coaches are teaching. And it should also foster more competition for playing time. Plus, it’s a way to get more work in without violating NCAA caps on practice time.
All it takes is better organization than we’ve been used to seeing.
