Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

Fans read into every play of the preseason, hoping to catch a glimpse of their teamís potential that season. But every year we watch several teams go 0-4 or 1-3 in the preseason, only to turn around and make the playoffs in the regular season. And for every one of those teams, there is a team that goes 4-0 or 3-1 in the August warmups, only to tank in the regular season. So if win-loss record doesnít help us evaluate anything, what signs of progress can we look for to properly evaluate the team in the preseason? The following guidelines may help shine light on the key areas of interest.

I think you'd be better than half of the talking heads on ESPN, Scheed. I might have to print this out and bring it with me to the game to keep focused. Good work.

Great points. Maybe it'll help people calm down a little bit.

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

Good call. I'm not sure I'd even put that much stock into the preseason. I'm just sick and tired of people who think wins and losses in the preseason means anything.

A lot of people get paid to tell us they do.

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

remember, we did go 4-0 in pre season in spurrier's first season and look what happened. pre-season is just to get players back in the flow, winning and losing isnt important in the pre season, especially since backups play 80% of the game

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

Right. Also remember that Spurrier was running like reverses and trick plays to run up the scores. The teams that are winning by a lot in preseason might be giving away more than we know.

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

I'm confused!

Do I begin drinking heavily, or




focus on the nuances?



I can't do both! (sets glass down!)

When in doubt, always drink heavily. Let someone else tell you how Campbell did.

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

Speaking of heavy drinking, I'm buying one of those mini-Heineken keg things. Anyone had those yet?

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

my buddy bought himself one of those things for an all day concert/tailgate that we had in college. He just walked around with it in one hand and a plastic cup in the other and got trashed. I can't even imagine how hot it must have been by the end of the day.

Re: Burgundy Army: Evaluating Preseason Performance

I have no idea, I'm betting quite a few, at least for one person.

Then maybe I'll do a pictorial essay this weekend and post it Monday.
