Odums calls SU practice facility unfit for use

BATON ROUGE - Southern football didn't use it's practice field today and Jaguars head coach Dawson Odums says the team will continue to instead practice on Mumford Stadium because the practice field is unfit for use. 

Odums said staffers picked up two buckets full of rocks that had littered the practice field and said he wouldn't subject his team to those playing conditions. 

"I want them to have the best practice and playing experience possible," Odums said before practice on Saturday.

The team practiced at Mumford Stadium without lines on the field (which Odums said was a first for him in his coaching career) and said the Jaguars will continue to practice at Mumford Stadium, even if it tears up the field before the home opener against Central Methodist on September 6th. 

Odums put out a call for help to build a new practice facility.

"We need help from the community," Odums said.

"We're trying to build a program here, but we need help."
