Honestly, I think we spend too much time on this board thinking that there is some unknown superstar sitting on the bench just waiting to make his big debut. I think the coaches should spend more time coaching the players up and less time worrying about rotations and mixes and matches. I have long thought the roster is way too big, which doesn't allow the coaches to actually mentor and you know, coach the guys who are going to spend the most amount of time on the field. How do they keep track of such a big roster, there are only three coaches?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.
