Head Coach Lane Kiffin
Following Saturday's Practice
"Practice seven. (I) thought the offense did some good things, especially early. Start with team run, that's big suppose-to plays. Good to see, because we've not had a lot of those and (it's) been kind of defensive dominant practices for the most part, so you always want balance, so there's good and bad to that. But again, very impressive. Their energy…they've still got it at the end, very competitive, so it's a special group. Kinda makes our job pretty easy. Now we just gotta get better execution."
