We had three college football coaches making public appearances in the Chattanooga area this week. The Vols Butch Jones. The Mocs Russ Huesman. And the Dawgs Mark Richt.

This is the time of year when coaches have their meet and greet with fans because they can't have any contact with their players. Summer is a dead period. It's up to the players to do their own conditioning and workouts, and hopefully build team leadership. Said Jones,"It is going to be a player led team this summer, and we'll see how they develop. It's a great challenge to our players. Also, summer is a tremendous opportunity for your team to grow much closer together."

Said Huesman,"You hope you have great senior leadership. I think we've got 10 to 12 really, really solid seniors this year in this class. Some 5th year seniors that know what they need to do in the summer time."

Added Richt,"I think in some ways if we micro-manage them every minute of every day, it's hard to grow up. It's hard to become a leader if the coaches are always leading. This is the time of the year when the players really have to take some ownership of what happens."
