“Every practice is a big deal because coaches go back and analyze it,” [Wooten] said. “If you have a bad practice, they see that… Every practice I think of as gameday and just go out and try to make plays because that’s what I came to do.”Although it will be awhile before we know for sure if the "Get on the bus" mantra will translate to the field of play, it's getting downright impossible to argue that it's not having enormously positive effects off of it. Gone are the days of just taking a practice or two off because of a nagging muscle. And players are eager to prove their worth during the week so that they might get between the boundary lines on Saturdays.
