So hard to get excited for this one, even as an opener. I'll be happy if we keep it close and play a tight game.
I‘ve always been excited for openers, even when we’ve had guys like Hogeboom, Rosenbach, Tupa, Beuerlein, Schroeder, and Krieg start at QB. Add some trash HC’s like Holway, Wilkinson, Bugel, Ryan, McGinnis, Wilks, and KK, and it becomes very easy to get excited about this opener. It’s no doubt a rebuild, but progress will come sooner than people expect.

When you have a young staff and almost the youngest roster (thanks Prater), you have to build the team first foundation at every step you can, IMO.
I agree. Football has always had a military-like structure. In the military, we build discipline by the smallest of actions. Google Admiral McRaven's commencement speech where he talks about the importance of making your bed in the morning.

Broken window theory.

The little things lead to the big things so the details matter.
When I first joined the Army I didn't really get why every little thing mattered like that, but I figured it out over time.

Wearing the team gear is just like wearing the uniform, which creates the sense of a team, a brotherhood.

I'll share this here again, too. This is a good article on the culture shock and shift and players fully understand what's expected of them....oh, and Murray loves it.
