It was great to see newly drafted Alterraun Verner joining the festivities Saturday at the Rose Bowl. He got a much deserved and warm applause from fans. I mean getting that degree in math/applied science! Oh yeah, and he did get drafted to Tennessee.
Prior to the game we opted for the AAA locker room tour given by Associate Athletic Director, Bob Field.
Unfortunately, I didn't retain much of what Field said; I just recall something about how the locker room is more similar to NFL rather than college specifications.
More after the jump.
Richard Brehaut runs a play
The game itself was a bit sloppy and the offense didn't seem to click. However, the effectiveness of the QB run option was hard to judge as special contact rules were in place to protect the QBs. Some of those QB runs probably would have gone for good yardage. I'll let those with better football knowledge analyze the game.
Of course meeting the team was what everyone was waiting for and all the team members smiled, patiently posed for photos and signed autographs for the fans.
How many days until September 5?
