Cowboys Move On Without Honey Badger

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

With Tyrann Mathieu not joining the McNeese Cowboys, it was business as usual today.  For the first time all week, the Cowboys did not have to think about the honey badger.  With the season opener two weeks away, they were back on the practice field getting ready. 

Assistant Coach Mike Collins explains it best: "Well, I think the thing that we had to be concerned with was our football players that we have here, and obviously the thing we needed to do was continue on with the process that we have going on right now, and to them, our players, it was just the simple fact that hey, we have a task at hand, and that is to get ourselves prepared for the season."

The final scrimmage of the preseason is Saturday morning at 9:45 at Cowboy Stadium and the public is welcome to attend.  Coach Matt Viator expects to run about 100 plays and get plenty of snaps for the first second and third teams.  McNeese opens their regular season on Thursday August 30 at Middle Tennessee State, just outside of Nashville.
