HOUSTON -- The University of Houston football team had their shortest practice of the year (one hour, 45 minutes) on the fields behind the Athletics Alumni Center on Wednesday (Oct. 4) afternoon as they prepare for their second conference game of the season this Saturday in Cincinnati against the Bearcats.

"We had a shorter practice today just to get our guys more crisp," said head coach Dana Dimel. "It's that part of the season right now when we need to try to shorten things down and become more crisp and more precise with what we are doing.

"Also, with an eleven o'clock start (Saturday), we're going to get less rest time between our Thursday practice and our Saturday practice, so we're trying to cut down a little bit so we're a little bit more sharp."

With the earliest game of the season (11:00am) for the Cougars set for this Saturday, this week Dimel and his staff have focused practices around the basic team "stuff" and not so much on the fundamentals. During the last three weeks the Cougars have been working extremely hard on details in long practices, and the hope is with shorter practices this week, they will be sharp and ready to battle on the field Saturday morning. "It's a huge difference, and that's one of the reasons why we've been cutting back on practice, number one," continued Dimel of this week's early game time. "And number two, why we're getting them (players) up early all during the week. We've been getting them up to lift at 6:30am every morning to get used to playing, because we'll be waking up at 6:30am for our pre-game meal."

Junior tight end Tommie Baldwin (Houston, TX), who pulled a tendon in his left leg in last week's contest against SMU, won't return to action for the Coogs for at least 3-4 weeks.
