Scrimmage #2 is in the books.  All that remains are three practices this coming week, and then the spring will be capped by next Saturday’s Spring Game.

The team worked on goalline situations for much of Saturday’s scrimmage.  As you might expect with one of the top defenses in the country facing a rebuilding offense, Bud Foster’s unit got the best of it.  However, there were some positives on the offensive side of the ball, too.

Logan’s Improvement

On Monday, Logan Thomas wasn’t at his best.  This spring is all about technique for him, and technique is about repetitions.  On Saturday, it looked as if all this spring’s repetitions are starting to pay off.  Thomas was a completely different quarterback than he was on Monday.

Thomas was only 6-of-16, but those numbers are deceiving.  I lost count of the number of drops during the scrimmage, and I don’t know how many came with Thomas throwing the football, he probably could have completed about four more passes.  The big issue was the tight ends, though the receivers dropped a few as well.

At any rate, Logan’s accuracy looked much improved on Monday.  That’s due to improved technique, and better footwork.  He is also showing an increased ability to read larger portions of the field.  When his eyes move from one side of the field to the other, his feet are going with him now, and that’s key.

It’s only one scrimmage, but if what we saw on Saturday continues, then we have tangible evidence that Scot Loeffler is doing a good job with Thomas.  I think those two guys are working very well together.
