I agree completely that our firsts need to play more. The interesting wrinkle this year will be the shot clock. How will this translate into up and down play and less substituting? There are opportunities here to take advantage of match ups with offensive mids playing defense even more so than before. At the same time, will our firsts end up playing more defense? Will there be more emphasis placed on trying to get a good shot sooner (i.e. pushing the ball not substituting) rather than letting the defense set up? Will we see more zone across the board? Will be interesting to see.I have said it before: If Rehfuss and Solomon can play for essentially 60 mins every game dodging against d poles and riding hard on clears, why can't our equally or maybe even more dangerous 1st line middies do at least somewhat close to the same when they almost always get subbed out after the ride?
