Full disclaimer, I haven't been to a Freshmen game this year so I'm not sure if Elder is doing this, but I've always believed for development purposes there should a lot of rotation (whether it's an A game or B game). I remember a few years back where Elder rotated 3 different QBs at the Frosh level, which made a lot of people angry because one looked much better than the rest. I'm all about winning games, but if you have 2-3 pretty competent players at a given position, why wouldn't you play them all. You could rotate series, rotate quarters, rotate halves, etc. Just get them in the game and see what happens. In the situation with the QBs, the one who happened to be best as a Frosh, didn't start at QB as a senior.
This makes alot of sense at the freshman level.

Disagree. With 60 kids on the Freshman team, kids need to play. You cant just take the top 14 and play them endlessly and expect to maintain numbers in the program. Freshman football needs to be development and for all of them, it's an introduction to high school sports and the responsibility of being a student at the same time. I think we all want the program to do well but I think most chalk this year up to learning the sport and Elder systems.
Agree with this 100x.

You can't play every kid at the expense of reps for the better players. The best 30-40 players should take at least 75% of the total snaps as Frosh.

Our boys hung in there, that was a game until halftime. A long 3rd down conversion stopped and don't turn it over on a kickoff and Elder is in the game into the 3rd quarter. Not taking anything away from Trinity, they were very good on both sides of the ball.

Give these boys a break. All this next year talk, there aren't 22 stud players coming up behind these guys. There is some upside here.
Gutless dimwit. This is the kind of fan represents everything wrong with our fanbase. Stick to soccer, you friggin wuss.

You and the rest of your kind with your soccer mom mentality are a cancer among a once proud fanbase. Patting yourself on the back for a blowout loss, that's pitiful. And that kind of attitude is what has allowed the program to dip in quality. Too many of you willing to use "recruiting" as an umbrella excuse for losing.
