Nope, kids want to play for winners and in regards to playing time and our depth issues we offer that too. So..... Or we could take it from our head coach about the number of positions he considers critical to success. “There’s 88 starting positions on the football team. That’s an interesting way to look at it, right? There’s offense, defense, punt, punt return, kickoff, kickoff return, field goal, field goal block. There’s 88 starting spots, and we did lose a bunch of starters if you look at the 88 starting positions.” — Dan Mullen Considering we have so many injuries, transfers, etc it would seem we offer everything you and I speak of.
