I have a hunch that academics may have something to do with it, though I have no facts. Walking into college academics and also becoming a key player very soon, as Priester did, is a tall order for anyone. Really hope we can keep him ... hard worker with talent and apparently well liked by teammates.

Fall practice will tell us more than usual this year. Will get a chance to see who among a talented group with some past experience can step into the two deep and be counted upon to play, and lead. I like our early schedule, with first two games at home against known quantities (Cid and VMI), then an interesting non-conference challenge at Wyoming. Stoddard, Brown, Newman, Mosley, McAfee, Watson, Alstatt, Cleary, Hammond, Hinton, Rountree,and Wilson are among those who need to provide leadership. As we all know, and have said on this board, the right leadership at crunch time, especially from fellow players, can make all the difference in a close game.
