Major Applewhite says that every position is open. Everyone is getting reps… He says that anointing starters can make them “comfortable” and not work as hard. Is it possible that our offensive production has been lackluster because of this? Hindsight being 20/20, maybe it would be better for our offense if starters were announced after coaches take a look at film and the starters get a majority of the reps in preparation for the next game?
Maybe it’s just coach-speak and he knows who the starters are but just doesn’t like to talk about it. Right now the bettors have us as a 14 point favorite and expect the score to be around 46 points total. That is projecting a final score of around 30 to 16. So far in all 3 games, the Cougars have scored less than projected and have allowed less than projected. If we have all the same starters against Temple, I’m thinking that trend continues.
