Interesting that he mentions Shane Sweeney, who had a terrific high-school career, as someone who is making noise for the number two spot that right now is a battle between Ryan Smith and Dan Harding (Transfer). Only bodes well for us that we seem like we have some serious depth with what we have coming in, what was thought of of Dan Harding, what Ryan Smith is putting up, and that Shane Sweeney is starting to figure it out.


MORE INTERESTING, was that it was not Kyle Downer who was not mentioned as the fourth guy. Early on in the Spring Practices, Coach mentioned some players moving positions. I wonder if Downer was one of those guys. Remember, this kid was also a RB...and he's very quick..and possesses great size at 6'3 and 220lb. Maybe he moves to the other side of the ball as a Safety or LB?

Any guesses on how many times we will actually run the ball in a game? I'd like to see the stats on the number of passes -- it seemed like a lot, but then that may mean (1) the running game may be somewhat settled, comfortable for the coaches with Omar, and/or (2) the real competition is at QB, especially in the passing game. Fiacchi certainly has gotten the message about getting rid of the ball more quickly -- and his passes seemed very sharp. The defense . . . hmmm.

A couple points.


1. Defense was handcuffed today. They weren't allowed to play their nickel defense which is according to the coaches a game changing scheme. It has been stifling the offense for the past two weeks.


2. Fiachi looked really good. The coaches said they've given him more control on the field. There will be no checking with the sidelines this year.


3. Tempo will be faster come fall. They did not run any hurry up today which they will. But we will not run too much no huddle because we don't have the depth on defense. It only exposes our defense if we go too quickly on offense.


4. Coaches are very impressed with our RBs. Didn't need much focus at all this spring.


Depth on both lines is suspect.
