Rain Doesn't Dampen Hurricanes' Spirits
Oct. 12, 2006
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami conducted its final full-length practice of the week, working through a downpour Thursday afternoon at the Greentree Practice Fields.
“It’s good to get in a little practice in the rain,” head coach Larry Coker said. “Guys are feeling good and clowning around. The attitude was good and it was a good Thursday for us.”
Coker does not expect to make any lineup changes for the Florida International game, after injuries and personnel changes affected the depth chart in the previous two games. “We’ve been pretty consistent and that’s been encouraging. We need to stay that way,” Coker said.
Coker also said that safety Anthony Reddick (ankle) is healthy and should be ready to go on Saturday. Freshman tackle Ian Symonnette will receive a medical redshirt after undergoing season-ending knee surgery earlier this week, Coker said.
Miami will conduct a walkthrough on Friday afternoon before reporting to the team hotel.
