Ah... nothing like a Buck68 comment on an early Monday morning to get you flying to the coffee pot for that 2nd cup. ;)

Complaints all last year was the staff was paying favorites over those more talented and players didn't fit the scheme. Funny to hear complaints/apprehension that the current staff is evaluating the players and wanting to fit the scheme to the players' abilities. Different issue if they haven't figured it out by fall, but this is exactly what a new staff should be doing in my mind. 

Also, Grinch never would've been kept in Day's defense - he is adamant about running a 3-4 defense.

Yes but a Buckeye fan's thoughts would immediately know it was referring to Young rather than seeing the conversation through those ugly maize / blue - colored glasses ;)

I think the article entirely missed the possibility of Brendon White moving down from safety to be a hybrid ala Darron Lee. Granted this would only happen if some of the other safeties take off. White is turning into a really good player but hard to see him or Fuller as true FS - they are both more in the SS mold.

I, too, would love to see Mitchell, Browning, Harrison as our starting 3.

So let's alter the statement to "you are WAY TOO efficient in the use of your time and put the rest of us to shame"

Hotshots have nothing to do with the weather. It's the name of the firefighters that fight the big wild fires.

... and I have 2 friends that are fire chiefs with over 30 years each. Thanks for clarifying and giving me a "duh - I should've thought of that" moment. They are absolutely some of the bravest people I know.

that most of the teams seem to have recruited regional talent to make the home connection more appealing, and that a few of the teams have puzzling names.

San Diego Fleet - Navy town (will see them at home soon)

Memphis Express - Fed Ex HQ

Orlando Apollos - I'm thinking connection is Cape Canaveral / Apollo missions launched from there

Birmingham Iron - was big iron works there in civil war - area was founded on iron plants since limestone/coal/iron were all local to area

Arizona Hotshots - weather

Atlanta and San Antonio - no idea
