Were they actually tackling the quarterbacks to were they calling sacks if you got too close to the quartback?
Usually during scrimmages a sack is when they get super close, but not actually tackle the QB. I was not there, but I would almost guarantee it was this way yesterday.

Right, so are 6 scrimmage sacks the same as 6 in game sacks?

Honest question.

Think two hand touch football sacks. Quarterbacks have the opportunity to use moves to get the defender away in games, or throw the ball away, that they don't have in practices.

From my experience watching spring and fall scrimmages (maybe 20 of them) I think they give the QB more leeway than he'd get in a real game because the defense isn't lunging or diving at the qb. They slow up. I'd say 6 scrimmage sacks would be a minimum of 6 in game. The exception is if you have somebody really shifty like Chuckie who could miracle out of ankle tackles.

6 different aggies got sacks and that's without Patrick Joiner. :cheers:
The bad news being our quarterbacks were sacked by 6 different players.
I've seen it happen in the pros, only it was during the season and the team walks away with a loss. Having this experience in a practice game? It's like a wakeup call. A good thing. OL has over 2 weeks to study film and make adjustments.
