TRAC Football is on a distinguished road

Now they need to see if they can still show that with their former D coach now at AW.

I'm surprised TRAC hasn't scheduled Saline. If a coach wants to get a good measure of his individuals and their team work and their coach work, they'd want to play against a team balanced and knowledgeable at every position that wins because of that, not because it has recruited a bevy of D1 recruits. Saline has shown, they are that team. They might have a few recruits, some out of district transfers, I don't know. But they're not playing with a bunch of D1 college recruits so the success would seem to be in the teaching and coaching.
I disagree 1000%. Go listen to the parents after little Johnnie didn't get in the first 3 games because they played 3 meat grinders. Then sit in the meeting with Johnnie and his parents about why he isn't good enough to play.

Your type of thinking might apply to the top 3-5 players on the team, but that is far in the minority. Since we are talking about PB, how many kids actually played meaningful mins vs Whitmer? 15-18? The other 45 players and parents would have rather beat Clay and SF again.
