In a bit of disappointing news, especially the 9-5ers out there, Saturday’s scrimmage has been moved to Tuesday at 3pm at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Saturday is now reserved for a closed practice. The weather may not be the best Saturday, so that may be a reason for the move, but it’s not clear why they decided to move the scrimmage. The scrimmage should be about 80 plays, and we should get a little bit more of a look at the new look offense, and some of the youngsters on both sides of the ball.
Scrimmages, for people who haven’t seen many of them, don’t look like a typical game, as coaches usually work various scenarios and situations, such as two minute drill, goal line, red zone and other. Sounds like Troy Williams is the No. 1, without much doubt, on the depth chart as of now, and it’ll be interesting how those around him come together, and scrimmages are a nice teaser for something like that. Of course, we won’t know much until fall, especially with players like Zack Moss and Armand Shyne not participating due to injury.
If you were planning on some Saturday football, better check your schedule and see if you can make it Tuesday afternoon instead.
