The football news is beginning to trickle out, and even though there has been no hitting at all yet, we hear the coaches talking about what they are seeing, a little bit at least. Right now, the teams are practicing in shorts, and they won't be in full pads until five days after practice begins. Until then, according to Coach Brooks, there is very little to say. No surprise there.
So, for your perusal and enlightenment, here's the news:

We really need all the help we can get at DE.

Which coach is the best sideline tactician?
Heh. Interesting. No mention of Tubby Smith? I think that's a mistake. Calipari at least got mentioned as one of the "...big dogs...".
