Sam Webb gave a summary of his opinions on the Rome practices today on the Michigan Insider podcasts.
- Mason Cole looks great at LT - like he hasn't missed a step
- Patrick Kugler has stepped up at Center and is currently leading over Caesar (too bad this didn't happen last year Kugler at C, Cole at LT may have been good enough to get us to the playoffs)
- Peters and O'Korn looked great at practice and Wilton was inconsistent (sprinkled some great plays with some not-so-good types). He still expects Speight to start the season at #1 but the gap is shrinking by the week.
I don't bring up #3 to stir up a Peters vs. Speight debate (the coaches will pick the guy who gives the team the best chance to win - full stop). However, these notes directly contridict the post from Maizenbrew yesterday.
How can two observers watch the same practice sessions and come out with completely opposite view points? Between the two, Sam has the track record and, to my knowledge, doesn't have any biases in this conversation - so I will go with his viewpoint.
