The Broncos charged into the ninth day of fall camp this evening. Injuries haven’t been an issue for the team. For the newly appointed play caller this year, Coach Harsin could see playing time out of several true freshmen. But if you ask the head man, he feels pretty confident in the younger players. 

“We will found out in these next two practices the mentality. They’re either going to attack it and embrace that, or they’re going to pull back and they’re going to separate themselves and kinda get back in the back of the line. And I don't know about this next scrimmage because it’s only going to get more intense,” said, Head Coach Bryan Harsin.

Camp hasn’t been all about football either. The team took the court earlier this week to shoot some hoops, and for nearly thirty minutes, Harsin sported a long blonde wig,  summing up his thoughts on how he hasn’t had the chance to cut his hair.

"It’s been a long camp ... I haven't had the chance to get out and get a haircut. I don't even though what day it is. Been grinding away, guys are working hard. This is what fall camp is all about: growing a beard and letting your hair get down a little bit, and just out there and getting better,” said, Harsin.

In the backfield, it will continue to be the Jeremy Mcnichols show, and the search for a backup running back keeps Harsin questioning as to which direction he will go this fall.

“We’re still working on it, still trying to see that rotation, who that's going to be giving those guys opportunities, and they’re taking the advantage of their reps,” said, Harsin.

At the end of the spring game this year, the winners earned steaks with their victory and the losers had to eat hot dogs. Coach Harsin was also asked during yesterday’s press conference if anyone has earned steaks so far for their efforts at camp. Harsin responded jokingly “We’re hot dogs right now, we’re not steaks yet.
