We are working hard right now getting ready for our trip to San Antonio later this month to play the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the Valero Alamo Bowl.
We had another bowl meeting this morning to clarify all kinds of things, from how many vehicles we need for the week, to arranging times for the equipment truck to deliver in San Antonio and return home to Tucson.
There are all kinds of logistic things that must be addressed right away. That is why I am leaving in the morning to spend a couple of days in San Antonio to work with the hotel, the staff at University of The Incarnate Word where we will be practicing, the Alamodome where the game will be played, setting up laundry service while we are there, among many other things.
In the meantime, we are working on getting our bowl sweats ready for the team to wear to different functions, patches for our game jerseys, nameplates for lockers, etc.....
We have a team meeting later this afternoon, and since most of our coaches are out recruiting, we will not resume practice until later this week. This is nice since we can use all the time possible to set things in motion for a fun week in San Antonio Texas.
This will be my second Alamo Bowl and it is a FUN bowl to go to!!!! I was with Washington State University when we played the Baylor Bears in the 1994 game there. Hopefully we will have the same results as we had then. Beating Baylor topped off a very fun week had by all.
I will be posting pictures in the coming days of some of our work.
