While football theories and philosophies may vary, there are a couple of truisms in the sport that have remained a constant.
First, when a team is lacking in depth, it is generally a good idea to slow your games down and limit possessions.
Second, when entering a season with few returning starters, it’s generally advantageous to have a system firmly in place, so varsity newcomers can quickly fill the vacancies.
In a nutshell, that makes Stephen Hermesmeyer’s Comanche Indians ideally suited (in theory) to take on the set of challenges facing them in 2018. Not only are the Indians short on returning starters, but they are woefully thin behind those few regulars they do have coming back.
