You see, the thing about a post on a blog is that sometimes you forget to read it from all perspectives before you hit the publish button.
Such is the case with my last post, Digging into the First Depth Chart: Interesting Inferences Can Be Made. I was a bit frustrated that Appalachian State released a depth chart for the first game before the official depth chart was released by ECU. And, I commented about it.
However, in re-reading my post, it sure didn’t reflect where my angst was directed. I assumed two things: 1) that Appalachian State was releasing something that maybe should have been held; 2) that the ECU Coaches were sure about some decisions but hadn’t conveyed them to ECU folks. Not sure on No. 1, thought looking at ECU’s official first depth chart, I am thinking that the first one released by ASU was not the prime time DC and perhaps should not have been released; and on No. 2, it was more a function of a responsibility to get something to the other team than it was not informing the ECU crowd.
Either way, it was petty, and a poor choice for a lead in to a post to analyze and drive conversation about the season and the players who will be competing for the Pirates.
Mea Culpa…for sure.
The full blown DC – which was released ahead of Coach Ruff’s presser – reflects a lot of information that we all expected to see – along with the QB decision – and with today’s clarification on the WRs, it all make much more sense.
Any way, I cannot wait for the season…now just a few days away. Here is to a great start to a great season.
Cheers to any and all who take the time to read these posts.
