Spring-game action -- beyond UM

The Hurricanes weren't the only South Floridians playing their spring game Saturday (though, if you missed it, you can still read about it or check out the play-by-play), as a few other big schools also held their annual intrasquad scrimmage.

Among them: Auburn, which features a quintet of former Broward players, and Mississippi State, which earned its first Sylvester Croom-era bowl trip under former St. Thomas Aquinas quarterback (and then-freshman) Wesley Carroll last season.

According to Mississippi State's stats, Carroll completed 2 of 6 passes for 16 yards and an interception in a defense-dominated, 6-0 contest. Die-hards can catch the game on CSS on Sunday at 12:30 p.m., Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. and an "enhanced" version April 10 at 9 p.m.

...And, while we're at it, Chaminade-turned-Canes linebacker Glenn Cook finished with four tackles -- one for loss -- in the UM defense's 32-29 win, according to the UM game recap.

The sixth-year senior's quote on the defense winning, according to Hurricanesports.com: "It means a lot. We want to win regardless of it's a practice game. We don't like to lose [to] the offense. We've been the whole spring, every day, so it was good to close out with a win."
