Rhoads looking for an efficient scrimmage Saturday.

Paul Rhoads met the news media after spring practice Tuesday and he was asked about the temperature of the session.

“Today, was probably our quietest practice,” the head coach said. “I thought we had a really up-tempo, urgent way about ourselves last week. I didn’t think we quite matched that today.”

You could also tell that Rhoads was looking forward to Saturday and the first scrimmage of the spring. He expects the temperature to rise then.

“It will be completely devoted to scrimmage,” he said.

What does he want to observe when his troops face off in game situations?

“Guys doing what they’re supposed to do,” Rhoads said. “That’s where it starts and it’s our #1 priority this spring. We need to become smarter, individually and collectively.”

There are always lulls in camps. But, you can expect a ramped up environment when a scrimmage take place.

It’s a good guess that on Saturday, some answers will start to emerge.
