EXECUTION AND TONE IMPROVES FOR OREGON IN SCRIMMAGE NUMBER TWO – “In terms of just playing ball, tempo was so much better, execution was so much better” – Mario Cristobal
It was a definite difference Saturday when the Ducks donned the pads inside of Autzen Stadium for their second active scrimmage of spring football 2018.
“In terms of just playing ball,… tempo was so much better,… execution was so much better,… unforced errors were cut down dramatically,” Cristobal said Saturday when comparing the Ducks second full pad scrimmage to their first a week earlier in Portland.
And while the Ducks continue to show consistent improvement throughout spring football, Cristobal feels it’s still the little things his team needs to concentrate on.
“We’ve gotta understand that the bits and pieces and nuggets, …they’re right there in front of us, in a step, in a hat placement, in an angle, in securing the football,” Cristobal said.
“Our guys understand we still have more in the tank, and we have to empty that tank to be a great football team.”
“Overall I thought we came out with great energy, and played the right things,” said inside linebacker Troy Dye.
“We’ve just got to execute a little better overall, but we came out the right way and we’re progressing in the right direction.”
