Good point RT. Some, like Moe, needed to lose some, and muscle up, and hopefully did.

Yep for the most part I am in favor of the lean, quick player over the heavier guy. One player I was hoping would lose weight is Contee but the roster says he is at 340. Maybe that is a good weight for him but that seems too heavy for 6'2". But he is only a Soph. Maybe he can lose some this year and become quicker and more agile. On the other hand Miles Brown seems agile and quick even though he is 320. Wonder what he could do if he were slimmer ? He should be quicker but would he lose strength and power from losing weight ? GO TERRIERS !!!!

Wow-That's a bunch of Terriers on the all Socon team-especially defense. If we do truly have 5 of the top 11 defensive players there is no way we are fourth in the ratings, but only play on the field will prove that.

Andrew Sargent's Wofford summary is one of the most thorough, albeit biased, analyses I have read. Man, do I hope he is right. BTW, didn't I hear Coach Conklin say he will run a two QB program, using both to their strengths?

I concur about Andrew's analysis. Our D should be downright tough, and I think our offense shows great promise if one or two positions pan out as I think they will. We could use more depth, but there is a lot of talent in the underclassmen which should get that job done. Must take it one play, one game at a time; focus, and do not quit. Clippings mean zero ... do it on the field, for each other. Short Haired Dogs!

New Def Coordinator profile by Todd S....solid pedigree; could have the makings of a TD (Tenacious Defense)

While I feel sure JC wouldn’t have hired him without being impressed with his knowledge and intellect, it gives me great comfort that JC with his elite experience will be backstopping and assisting our D coaches. I am hearing JC has been quite active in practice in coaching up both sides of the ball. He is bringing a lot of energy and hands on teaching.

Parenthetically, I look for Hinton and Rountree to make big contributions this year. Rountree in particular has worked hard and appears solid as a rock. Both are experienced and know the drill.

Scrimmage notes.

Offensively you could tell it was the first scrimmage. False starts, exchanges, snaps. All things that will get corrected in practice. The play calling although scripted looked like the perfect recipe for Wofford to put up some major stats this season. The identity of this offense will be hard to pinpoint unlike years past. Traditional Wofford Triple option mixed with RPO'S, Power sets, plenty of fomations, motions, shifting, play action, and empty sets. Personnel wise we have some additions to the skilled positions that if they learn the playbook and keep progressing, will be difference makers on Saturday. TJ Luther and VanCleave showed glimpses of raw talent. Luther can flat out take the roof off a defense. He blew by a veteran DB and had to wait for the under thrown pass for a TD. While VanCleave is a mixture of Blake and McAfee with less power of course. Great hands out the backfield and surprisingly for a back of his stature, a shifty but North South running back.

Defensively I think we are going to be pleasantly surprised. Even with only a few days into fall camp, the defensive play calling looked cleaner and a conscience effort was made to be aggressive and dictate to the offense what it could call. Look for opposing offenses to be doing plenty of check offs pre snap. The Defensive coaching staff seems to be more seasoned than last. In game adjustments is where I think we fell off last season, so it's yet to be seen with this staff to have an opinion. With the pedigree of the players and coaches this season I think we can be a top 10 defense nationally. Depth at OLB is still a concern. I wanted to see the 2 incoming freshman but I think they were held out of scrimmage.
