124.5, sports fans! 124.5

by

Yep. That was the temperature on the practice fields today at the start of practice. Warm, I say. Warm.

However, that wasn’t a distraction for the players.

Energetic would be the word to describe practice. And don’t forget, the day started with a 6 a.m. fun run.

As for injuries, four were held out – Aaron Feld (back), D.J. Looney (meniscus), Brandon Cooper (back) and Damein Anderson (hamstring).

I’ll have some quotes following interviews.

    124.5?!?!?! Are you kidding me? That is really hot. I hope they had plenty of water out there. Wow. I guess I shouldn’t complain about the 95 degree weather here in Knoxville, TN

    The doggies need to find a shade tree to practice under. 🙂

    It should be noted, jm, that was on the artificial surface.

    GG, you might have to start an offseason regiment to get ready for the preseason. Can’t have you passing out and crap on the sidelines. Way to suck it up though.

    No kidding, Draws. That actually happened once two years ago. Embarrassing. But now I know they really mean it when they say to take food with certain medications. There is a reason.

    I used to think those thermometer shots from the surface of the playing surface were bogus during ballgames. However, during a recent visit to a SEC school with SportsTurf, an artificial surface with crumb rubber, the surface temp was 176F (measured with an infrared gun) at 2pm when the air temp was 92F. The surface of the adjacent bermudagrass practice field was 106F. The air over the artificial turf felt like walking into a furnace. Interesting enough, nearby asphalt only measured 136F.
