Some option football and spread football. Just a lot of misdirection. We’ve got to be sound with our perimeter people, not letting the ball get outside of us. Keep areas restricted and then not give up the big play.”

NAME THAT TUNE
The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying or even how much I owed…
