UNIVERSITY PARK, TX - The Green Packers are used to working out in the cold, but one look at SMU's field and it was easy to see why the team moved to the indoor facility at Highland Park High School.

The tarp was still down with several inches of sleet and snow still covering the field.
 
"We were just making adjustment to our schedule today," says Packers head coach Mike McCarthy. "Yesterday, we did all our meetings and walk-throughs here (Omni Mandalay Las Colinas) at the hotel."
 
McCarthy had nothing but compliments for the facility at Highland Park High School. "The surface was excellent and the facility is excellent," McCarthy said. "It was exactly what we needed."
 
"We're going to do everything here like we did yesterday for meetings and walk-throughs, and then we're going to dress here and tape (at the Hotel)," McCarthy said. "There are just some adjustments that need to be made and then we'll go right from here to Highland Park."
