HATTIESBURG, Miss. - It's all about pace for the Southern Miss football team as they completed their second practice session here Thursday afternoon at the Joe P. Park Practice Facility.
When asked by a media member after practice about if he had set a good pace for spring, first-year coach Todd Monken thought that his Eagles had.
"I think so, but of course I am the one who sets it so I think it is pretty good and that would be bad if I said that and it wasn't very good," joked Monken, but added. "What you really want is to test your players to be able to function when they are tired. That is really what you are trying to do."
Monken added that there was no reason to go no-huddle if your team could not do it things better than the other team. He said his team was not there yet, and was satisfied on the team's progress over their first two days of installing the systems for next season.
Monken also admitted that his team has made mistakes over the first two practices but added that the players were doing things with energy and enthusiasm and that was all that he could ask of his team.
The Golden Eagles worked over two hours during the late afternoon in helmets and shorts and will return to practice on Friday afternoon for the third of 15 scheduled practices.
