"A better day today. I thought guys responded. Better intensity, focus," Norvell said. "As I talked about yesterday, the great thing about football is that it mirrors so many things in life. Human nature gets to show up and sometimes you get to fight yourself against those instincts of what you'd like to do. I love getting an opportunity to get a bye week. You get a sense of where your team is and the areas that you have got to continue to work and improve.

"Yesterday, going back and watching film, there were a lot of guys that did an outstanding job. But then there were a handful of guys that were not at the intensity level and I felt that on the field," Norvell added. "It is a much smaller number than we've ever had here before, but we still have to make the choice of what we are willing to give, what we are willing to invest. I thought today we responded and I thought we got some good work."

The players will now take the next few days off, before coming back together on Sunday to begin their normal game-week prep as UMass prepares to come to town.

Norvell and his staff will hit the road to recruit in the coming days during the bye week.

"We've tried to take advantage of as many opportunities as we could," Norvell said of recruiting. "I've been on the road a few times already. I'll be at games tonight until Saturday night. So I'll be four straight (days), just rolling, trying to get out. There have been so many challenges when it comes to recruiting since I've been head coach here, just so many limited opportunities, so I'm trying to take advantage of all those. Our coaches will be on the road, working through that."

It is an evaluation period. So the coaches will watch prospects in practice or games, while also speaking with their coaches, counselors and other school personnel. Contact with players isn't allowed at this time per NCAA rules.
