EWU practice report, Day 8

Yes, this really is Day 8, since the conditioning and orientation sessions last Monday and Tuesday count toward the NCAA-mandated maximum of 29 practices. Actually, two-a-days count as two practices and there are five of them, so the Eagles have 25 practice days before Idaho. … The Eagles had a great practice Monday morning, especially if your name is Kyle Padron or Demetrius Bronson.

 Even in a full-team drill that was run-oriented, Padron hit some nice long passes, including a picture-perfect TD throw to Cory Mitchell. Bronson is the clear front-runner at RB, and got almost all the first-unit reps Monday morning. Coach Baldwin told me after practice that if the Idaho game were tomorrow, that Bronson would be the guy, but added that the game “isn't tomorrow.”  … The players were hard at it Monday morning, including the defensive line (here's my video shot this morning) A few players here held out of drills for precautionary reasons, including O-lineman Steven Forgette and defensive back Miles Weatheroy. … The Sports Network just announced its preseason poll, which has Eastern 12th, behind MSU at fourth and Montana at 11th. Sam Houston State is ranked No .1.
