Shep I appreciate your thoughts.
Is it possible you are confusing Rooney and Aplin? Rooney is listed as 6’3”, Aplin at 5’11”.
My main takeaway with the Spring Game is that it needs to be more of a fun, festive EVENT. While a practice shouldn’t be sacrificed as they only get 15 each spring, the top priorities should be the recruits and the fans. Make the atmosphere as fun as possible. I know that speakers are part of Phase 2, but adding fun music, the Aleris announcer for play by play, bringing fans onto the field for the field goal drills at the end to try to freeze the kicker, a student vs. player 40 yard dash competition, encouraging fans to pick sides and cheer for the OL/DL one on ones.... lots of possibilities.
If I were a recruit at this game I’d have said “boring.” See what can be done to make this game “lit.”
As a fan it would have been nice to have had Bubba get on the mic to thank everyone for their support and encourage them to support the team in the fall.
