You're exactly right, RJ

Fall ball is all about finding out what you have and getting orientated to the college competition. If you play any type of "big name" competition, there is a natural tendency to want to win those games and a coach might not play the newcomers that need the experience.

Coach Pete tells the story last night of an intersquad scrimmage last year that he scheduled under the lights. He saw some real "saucer eyes" and a significant drop from the performance that he had seen in practice.

The fall is the time to get that experience.
