The fun starts at 7:30 tonight.
Will the starters see the field tonight? If so, will it be just for a series and then call it a day?
Here's what I would do. I would play the starters for a maximum of one offensive/defensive series. No exceptions. But the starters have earned the right to go toe to toe with someone in a different colored jersey, and break a sweat.
I am most excited to see the guys play in quarters two and three. These will be the guys that every team needs on its roster to be successful - the niche or specialists, and the depth guys. Guys like Derrick Willies, D'Ernest Johnson, and the subs on the OL. I also want to see the rooks.
But more than anything else, I want everyone (both teams) who steps onto the field tonight to exit it in the same physical condition they entered onto it.
