Gold standard

One noticeable change at practice today: Three players wearing Gold No. 1 jerseys.
Apparently, it’s something new being instituted by Tyrone Willingham to reward those players who performed well the day before in practice.
Willingham twice singled out Carl Bonnell, Dan Howell and Greyson Gunheim for praise during his meeting with the media Wednesday. And those were the three players wearing the gold jerseys during the afternoon practice.
It’s reminiscent of a tradition during the Jim Owens era where players would be rewarded by being allowed to wear a purple helmet during games and practices.
The team, by the way, is again being split into two groups for practice during camp, with the starters and deep reserves practicing together, and the number two and three units practicing together.
All the players will gather at the end of the first practice and the beginning of the second to do some drills together, as well.
