Once again, the Herd defense asserted itself, racking up several "sacks" on Rakeem Cato, Blake Frohnapfel and others.
"That's what it's supposed to be every day," Holliday said. "Finally, we're getting to the point where, defensively, we're getting pretty physical, and that's a good thing."
On the personnel front, freshman Justin Hunt showed up on the first receiving unit when the team went to 11-on-11 drills. Shawney Kersey played on the other side, with Demetrius Evans in the slot and Hoskins at tight end. (Remember, Tommy Shuler has been out.)
Other alignments of note: Stefan Houston and Jermaine Holmes were the first-team linebackers, with Corey Tindal in his nickel/hybrid role. Free safety Taj Letman remained on the first unit alongside D.J. Hunter, with Darryl Roberts and Monterius Lovett at the corners.
The defensive tackles between Jeremiah Taylor and Alex Bazzie were incumbent Brandon Sparrow alongside Steve Dillon, with James Rouse and Josh Brown getting quality reps.
Just about all of those spots are very, very subject to change. The more constant unit (besides the quarterback pecking order) has been the offensive line, starting (from left tackle to right tackle) Gage Niemeyer, Sebastian Johannson, Chris Jasperse, Alex Schooler and Garrett Scott.
On the injury front, don't expect running back Kevin Grooms and receivers Shuler and Davonte Allen to participate in today's scrimmage.

There was no decision in this bout, but you have to wonder: With his supernatural wingspan, how can anybody land a solid shot on Jean-Felix?
