My first University of Cincinnati spring practice report has been filed to Sports XChange:
Initial impressions of first-year Bearcats head coach Butch Jones:
A no-nonsense football coach. Not the salesman/politician combo that was Brian Kelly, but more of a bare-bones guy. Players seem to like his open-door approach. Practices are just as spirited as they were under Kelly, and perhaps a bit more fast-paced. Jones' offensive philosophy is similar, although look for the running game to be more of a factor next season.
On a sunny, spring-like day at Nippert Stadium, you could almost smell fall.
