The Colorado St. Rams started fall camp on Saturday, but several players were absent for the first half of practice due to attending a funeral. They went through the same practice later in the day, but on Sunday the entire team was finally together to complete its first practice.
New head coach Jim McElwain likes how quickly they are gelling together (via CSURams.com):
"Some of our young guys were kind of, ‘which way did they go?,’" McElwain said. "I noticed for the first time our older guys (saying), ‘hey you got to get over here.’ That is a sign that things are good. They’re being accountable for each other and they’re helping each other. I was happy with that."
McElwain is in his first year as the Rams' head coach, making it critical that not only his players work well together but that he and his players all work in rhythm. Early on, that seems to be happening.
With camp just entering its third day, there isn't much big news to be found yet. CSURams.com does report that freshman defensive lineman Mitch Frentescu is dealing with plantar fasciitis and get to wear the no-contact red jersey.
