From Pullman — The Cougars took the field at 7:45 p.m. on a brisk Sunday night in Pullman for a short football practice. Freshman safety Isaac Dotson was nowhere to be seen, but defensive coordinator Mike Breske said that the former quarterback remains a part of the team. The Cougars spent the bulk of practice working on various individual drills, and we had a chance to speak with Breske after practice.
Excerpts from that interview after the jump.
(What make Arizona running back Kadeem Carey so good?)
He runs very balanced, he's got good strength, finishes his run. Very seldom do you see one guy bring him down or trip him up. He's got all the tools. He blocks well in pass protection, catches the ball, too. I mean he's the complete running back.
(How have the Wildcats improved this year?)
I think they've grown together. Experience, reps if that makes any sense. Right now we're going into game 10, you can see the development of the quarterback since they played Northern Arizona, which I believe was their first game. As he developed they became better.
(What are you seeing out of Darius Lemora?)
He's just getting back in the groove, learning his defense. He's been away for awhile with the surgery on his toe. He's just excited to get back out and he's running around and now we've got to get him in control and learning the defense, which is going to happen more this spring.
