    Practice Report 8-8-08

    Practice Highlights
    6-on-6 Passing Drill
    - QB Austen Arnaud went 7-of-10 for 70 yards, the longest a 51-yard grab by WR Jake Williams on a beautifully thrown post. Arnaud also completed a 7 yards to WR Marquis Hamilton and 9 yards to Houston Jones

    - QB Phillip Bates also threw the deep ball well, completing three passes of 15 yards or more to WR Darius Darks (19 yards) and twice to Zitek (18 and 28 yards).
    3rd and 7 11-on-11 Offense vs. Defense
    - Arnaud completed his first three passes for 66 yards, two of them to WR Euseph Messiah (20 yards) and then a 46-yard strike to Darks over the middle, where he made a man miss and picked up 21 yards after the catch.

    - DE Rashawn Parker knocked a ball down at the line of scrimmage and LB Michael Bibbs had a coverage sack before Bates came in and completed two more deep passes, this time a 36-yard strike to WR R.J. Sumrall and a 39-yarder to Hamilton on the next play.
    2nd and 10 11-on-11 Offense vs. Defense
    - RB Alexander Robinson got in the action right away, running once for 6 yards and then taking a screen pass 12 yards for a first down from Arnaud. Bates and WR Jason Carlson then hooked up twice for 77 yards, the latter a 69-yard TD on a post corner where Carlson separate from the safety over the top, Bates laid in the throw and Carlson took it in for the score.

    - For the defense, LB Jesse Smith deflected a pass over the middle that was nearly interception by DB Ter'ran Benton.
    - Bates looked to go long again to another newcomer, as he threw a 32-yard dart to WR Lonzie Range for another first down.
    - DE Kurtis Taylor finished practice with a sack

    Either Carlson is the best receiver in the country, or we better hope for some serious pass rush this year. Every day that cat is making plays.

    I also get the impression that Bates throws a very nice deep ball but will need to develop his short to medium throws to beat out Arnaud who continues to put up completion percentages in the 70% range through camp.

    Darks has been more productive than sed Johnson.

    could have told you that it doesn't matter how many stars you have behind your name as long as you make plays.

    Re: Practice Report 8-8-08

    Anyone else notice that they typically list Arnaud's percentage of completions (7 of 10) and Bates is typically listed as completed 3 passes for x amount of yards?

    I noticed this as well. My interpretation is that Arnaud is staking his claim for #1 QB.

    It seems that they have done it for both players, but maybe Bates a little bit more. I dont think comp % is huge right now, since camp just started and a lot of new people are playing, but they are probably looking at many more things than just that, although it is important for keeping drives going.

    Re: Practice Report 8-8-08

    Impossible to know based on practice stats who will start.

    Arnaud may be torching the second teamers, while Bates is playing ok with the first.

    This is at least the 2nd time they have said that Arnaud had a "beautifully" thrown deep ball. It seems a little odd.

    I know, right? And they always list Arnaud's stats first. Bates is getting screwed. Obviosly the system is against him.
