The Warriors, like every other college football team, adheres to a routine. For the Warriors, that means a brisk walk following the wake-up call on game day and specified meal times.
But because of several factors, the Warriors depart this evening on a rare (for them) non-stop, red-eye flight to the Central time zone. The Warriors try to avoid overnight flights because it throws off sleep patterns, especially for players who have difficulty getting their Z’s on airplanes.
The Warriors also will be departing today, a day earlier than usual for a road trip. The Warriors prefer to have a full Thursday practice at home, with only the Friday walk-through session on the road.
But unless The Concorde is re-activated, it is what it is, as they say. The Warriors will arrive in Houston tomorrow morning, check into the hotel, sleep, and then practice in the late afternoon.
Meanwhile, the Warriors will practice this morning, then attend classes all day, before going to the airport this evening.
