Spring Starts Today, Pro Day Tomorrow (w/UPDATES)

Spring practice starts... right now! Be sure to check UH Sports Extra and the Warrior Beat for news reports from the field.

UPDATE: Here's Dave Reardon's live blog.

UPDATE #2: Video from the Advertiser from this morning's practice.

UPDATE 3: Here's video of KGMB's Liz Chun's live-from-the-field interview with Greg McMackin from practice this morning.

UPDATE 4: Here's a press release about the first day of practice, from the UH Athletics department.

UPDATE 5: Here's video from KHON's John Veneri. It includes some great quotes from Inoke Funaki and Tyler Graunke about the QB battle between them.

UPDATE 6: Going crazy with the updates, but I think is the last one. Here's a video from a report by KHNL's Stephen Florino.

Dave Reardon, Jason Kaneshiro and Brian McInnis have part two of their interview with Greg McMackin. An excerpt:
Q: Who are some of the players on offense you think will surprise the fans?

A: A guy who's really been working hard this offseason is (quarterback) Inoke Funaki. He's really improved himself. Another guy people are going to be impressed with is (receiver) Greg Salas. He's really taken himself to the next level. He's matured, and grown physically, picking up speed and strength.
Brian McInnis takes a look at the QBs battling for the starting position.
Graunke, considered the favorite to inherit the job from Brennan last season, doesn't see a reclamation of his alpha status as a given. He's been throwing every day with the likes of receivers Malcolm Lane, Michael Washington and former Warrior Chad Mock, and is banking on his game experience being a deciding factor.

"I'm approaching it very optimistically, actually," Graunke said. "Pretty much that's been my situation for my whole career, second string and fighting for that top spot. I don't consider this any differently. I'm going to be out to prove everybody wrong and to earn that spot."
...Reardon has some leftover quotes from that article on his blog.

And KHNL's Stephen Florino interviews Colt Brennan by phone about tomorrow's Pro Day.
