    Very interesting. Outside the box thinking and I like it. Not sure that the extra practice is a huge deal, but I like that he's looking at things like this, and has developed a plan for using it effectively.

    Cool...I like it. Boise State started doing it last year, too. Can't think of very many (if any) others that do it.

    Sounds like a good plan to me too. Gotta like a guy who is capable of independent thinking.

    It won't work. They don't do it this way in the NFL.

    Considering the complete dog's breakfast that the former coaching staff made of the spring game in 2012, any change would be welcome, but this sounds like an innovative and excellent idea.

    I liked HCMM's explination for having one practice after the spring game. There is no confusion that the spring game is no more than just another step in preparation for the upcoming season... the spring game is not an end. Setting conditions for success of the summer work is a good path to increased productivity.

    I also like the idea of using the after spring game session to "practice" how they will self assess after a game. Makes sense to me.

    I really like this idea of immediate reflection. I think it's way more affective to reflect on the spring game the very next day. I hope it's beneficial!

    Also, I hope the 2013 Spring Game is actually a GAME, not an awkward practice with cones on the field like last year.

    This is brilliant strategy until our first bad loss, then we'll blame this decision...standard fan protocol, right?

    Interesting. Of course all that really matters is Ws, so if this helps in that regard, cool.
