The cold, wet weather that poured more than three inches of rain on the Twin Cities metro area forced some changes at the Football University camp over the weekend.
Instead of having three 80-minute practices on Saturday and two on Sunday, two practices were held on both days. Sunday's practices were around 40 minutes longer to ensure the same amount of field time for the athletes.
"It would be easy to just stay inside, but it's important to get on the field and get as many reps as we can outside," said FBU coach Mike Wilson.
Sunday's weather was still dreary. A steady drizzle persisted throughout the day and temperature was around 50 degrees -- an improvement from Saturday nonetheless.
