Rice football has one scrimmage in the books and continues to work. Here are some growing pains and high points from Week 3 of spring ball.
Overall, Rice Football head coach Mike Bloomgren was optimistic following the first scrimmage of the spring. “I look at our team in totality and we are better in terms of our knowledge of the system,” he said. “There’s less missed assignments everywhere on the field. And we move faster to and from the ball.”
That progress has come with some highs and a few lows. This team is, as Bloomgren dubbed it, “an exciting work in progress.”
