Spitblood Predictions: Spring Practice

Like we did every Friday during football season, it's once again time for the members of the Spitblood community to showcase their individual soothsaying talents. The Horned Frog football team starts spring practice later today, so let's see how you all do predicting what will happen in the next few weeks. Give us your thoughts, in the comments section, on these topics:

1) How will the QB race progress this spring? Will Pachall run away with the starting job? How much competition will he get from Matt Brown? Will any of the other QBs enter the conversation?

2) What players that have previously been in the shadows (redshirt freshmen or guys that just have not played much yet) will step up and become key contributors?

3) If any, what players do you think will end up changing positions- and why?

4) How will the newcomers (early-enrolled freshmen and JUCO transfers) do in spring practice? Which of them will end up having the biggest impact in 2011?

5) What will this team's final record be in 2011? I realize it's ridiculously early to be making predictions like this about a team with so many unknowns, but let's really see who's the best at seeing into the future.

We are playing them at Amon G. My company is supplying the HVAC equipment for the new stadium and I saw that the project schedule has the West stands set to be complete (or at least close enough) by the time we open up against LA Monroe on Sept. 17th.

The lower half of the bowl is supposed to be completed by the beginning of the season. The westside upper deck is not supposed to be finished until next season, I think. If I'm wrong, somebody feel free to correct me please.

That could very well be the case. I didnt look too closely at it. But I know there is a note to have a certain milestone done by the time the season starts. I am curious to know what the total seat count will be this season if that is indeed the case, and the upper deck wont be there??

When are they going to announce the east side renovation? Its not going to look nice with one side state of the art and the other side not.

How long would it take to renovate the east side? 1 year?

Dan said...

The east side is the second phase of the renovation. My understanding is that they are going to tear it down shortly after the last game of this season, similiar to the way they demolished the west side. Then, the stadium will be completely remodeled by the start of the 2012 season which is convenient considering thats when the Big East play begins. But it will kinda suck having one side brand new and the other laggin behind. oh well...

One more year in the old section v. We should rip out our seats (benches) after the last game.
