Football Puts Practice One In The Books
The University of Cincinnati football team opened up spring practice Friday, conducting the first of 15 spring practices inside the bubble at the Sheakley Athletics Center.
The two-hour workout in helmets was the first under the direction of head coach Tommy Tuberville who took the UC job in late December.
Before practice started, Tuberville gathered the Bearcats at the center of the field and talked about patience and improvement.
"Everybody out here has to have patience," Tuberville said. "Rome wasn't built in a day. All of you in here are learning a different language. Everybody has to get better. Let's make sure we improve every day."
Tuberville spoke with Bearcats TV following practice.
