    Re: First Practice?

    I ran into Jessie Smith at Scheels on Monday night. He said players report on Tuesday, August 4. I would assume practice starts either the 4th or 5th.

    Jessie is looking solid & his handshake almost dropped me to my knees. He said he is excited to get this year started. Go Cyclones!!!

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Look at you, big brother, getting in with QB1. I only hope that means your brother is best friends with QB1 as well.

    You all crack me up.

    But since you all seem to be in the "Loop", I'm curious how the transition is going with the new offensive and defensive philosophies. Have they been given everything, or only a little part of everything? Does it seem effective? How much is PR playing with the role of the Defense?

    Re: First Practice?

    This may be a stupid question, but I am going to ask it.

    How come they all start on different days? If the earliest to start is on the 5th why wouldn't they want to start then to get that extra day? I know that it wont make a big difference, but just wondered.

    You can only have so many practices, I believe.

    And only within a certain time period before kickoff of your first game--which might have small relevance to do with why we play so many Thursday night openers.
