1. Johnson's comments on the first day: "It was good to get back out there. It seemed like it's been awhile since the spring. It wasn't real hot, but we had a good, warm day to get started to kind of get back in the flow. Overall, it was like you'd think the first day. The returnees kind of got an idea of the pace and where to go, and a lot of big eyes (on the part of the freshmen). I don't think a lot of those guys have gone at that pace and at that speed before. They'll learn, but all in all, I think that they approached it in the right attitude and tried to get through it and worked pretty hard."
2. The four quarterbacks – Matthew Jordan, TaQuon Marshall, Lucas Johnson and Jay Jones – were split up to run the two offenses that take turns running plays in practice. Freshman Tobias Oliver was given some reps with the No. 2 offense.
