    First play?

    I'm thinking (hoping) play action bomb to Blythe. I wouldn't be surprised to see Kent State blitz the first play knowing our weakness is the OL.

    On the other hand, my more realistic guess is that neither of those happen and we run a sweep for 2 yards.

    Draw play up the middle for -2 yards... wait that was last years third down special.

    Re: First play?

    I spoke with Pollard at Fan Fest and he said that he told GC to run a halfback option. That pleases both the run and pass fans.

    But what if we win the toss and choose defense first...oh wait, that was the old regime.

    I'd like that play.

    I want to see the flea flicker. It worked for me on Tecmo Super Bowl.

    Blythe runs to the bumper on the Dodge and turns left. Summeral to the rose bush and waits. Scales stops at the manhole and Meyer throws to whomever is defended by the short kid. And remember, no rushing the passer until you count 10 Mississippi's.

    Re: First play?

    How about that counter reverse that Lane Danielson always seemed to run for a touchdown 5 years ago? I'd think either Sumrall or Moses is fast enough to burn the defense with that...
