I think it’s fair to say that none of the starting attack are locked in as starters. Reefus didn’t do anything against Colgate. I know he is a good player and has been a solid player in the past, but he was terrible on Friday. Voigt sounded like he had a solid preseason, but he too did nothing in the game. Solomon looked alright at best. He did score a few on man up and scored another easy goal. What I saw that was interesting was that Solomon and Cook seemed to have decent chemistry. I thought Cook seemed a little nervous as it was his first game. He made a bunch of mistakes that I'm sure he won’t make again. I think it’s time to give Seebold a shot, I think he can add something new and a change of pace that the attack could use. Maybe even add Curry to the attack considering he is more of a threat to score than the other attackman and will probably get a pole now.
Again, Desko seemed to lay all the blame of the Colgate loss on the players' feet without realizing that the buck stops with him. Maybe Seebold is a good player but he didn't produce at all last season and hasn't put up any numbers in the scrimmages - I have to think there is a reason he isn't playing. Cook, the jury is still out for me on him - he looked promising but also had some big time turnovers. I don't think I would play him at middy yet, let him get comfortable at attack before throwing a second position at him. Also don't want him playing any type of defense.
