Spring Practice Update - ECU

Tigers ready for Orange-Black game

Bob Forrest Sports Writer

Ada — By the time Saturday’s Orange and Black Game is over (and with it, East Central University’s spring football practice), third-year coach Kurt Nichols expects to have a pretty good blueprint for the team he will field this fall.

“I will know who 85 percent of the team is going to be after Saturday,” said Nichols, who saw his defense dominate last Saturday’s first spring scrimmage.

In contrast to last weekend’s 90-minute session pitting the Tigers’ new 3-4 defensive scheme against a patchwork offense that wasn’t the finished product Nichols expects it to be when the 2008 season opens in late August, this weekend’s spring finale — which is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. at Norris Field — will be a split-squad affair played under game conditions with Lone Star Conference officials calling the action.
