The football team gets back to practice today at Spaulding. Once again lot of eyes are going to be on the offense which is still coming into shape under a new head coach and its 4th OC in last four years. Pat Cowan for his parts thinks the offense is "progressively getting better":
"I really didn’t know what to expect coming in here. I knew I was going to have a lot of chances."
Those chances are exactly what he has taken advantage of this spring. He has drawn plenty of compliments from coach Rick Neuheisel who has spoken of Ramirez as an outstanding athlete who needs to be on the field.
However, with the fall arrival of a talented group of running backs including Milton Knox, Johnathan Franklin and Aundre Dean, Ramirez may be looking at the short end of the stick at the tailback position.
That doesn’t bother him.
"Wherever (Neuheisel) puts me on the field, I’ll be excited to play for him," Ramirez said.
However, Neuheisel made it clear he doesn't envision changing Rasshan's position unless the red-shirt junior is interested in doing so.
"My experience is putting people in places where they don't want to be is a disaster,'' Neuheisel said.
