Sometimes your head can spin if you go by the up-and-down analysis for spring practices. The first two days, sophomore wide receiver Devon Williams was supposedly dropping a lot of passes. Uh oh.
Then he caught three TDs on Saturday and Clay Helton was lavish with his praise. Hurray!
“Devon’s doing a nice job because he knows what to do . . . there’s clarity,” Helton said. “He’s just playing so much faster.”
Except for those drops. Plus the three TDs were against a secondary with one healthy scholarship cornerback.
Translation: It’s just spring practice and players make plays one day and drop passes another day. It should be about improvement but coaches/media/fans like to read too much into everything.
Everything has to be significant in this atmosphere, right? Especially with a coach trying to hang on to his job.
