Didn't the previous coach do the same thing ... i.e., appear to favor his own recruits over people he "inherited" from Siedlecki?

I can tell you I see 8 Freshman listed on the depth chart That seems like a Lot. CAN'T be that Tony Reno is a magician and found that many super talented Freshman that actually earned a place on the chart over returning players, and that's not to mention all the Special Teams that are not listed. Wonder how many of "Reno's Boys" will be taking those spots All said and done John Whitelaw got a raw deal from Tony Reno!

This is a great feature, really helps stay on top of the team, hope you repeat it throughout the season, hopefully changes will be attributed to players stepping up and not injuries.

Perhaps we should wait to see what they do on the field before we get our panties all up in a bunch, hmm?
