    Why does Clancy seem to prefer the 4-2-5 defense with only two down linemen and two standing ends? I understand that look against teams like Oregon, but I seem to recall he was running a lot of that look even against Stanford, ND, Penn State, and some of the more physical teams on the schedule. Why is that? And do you expect that to change this year with so many more big, athletic bodies upfront?

    El Camino College. It was completely closed to fans, families and media.

    With JT on board do you think USC is still pursuing Fields? If we were to get Fields, would JT stick with us. As good as Fields is I would rather have JT. Fields elsewhere would not play against us. JT elsewhere would likely be playing against us each year.

    Garry, everyone has been bagging on the place kickers and it's always in reference to their field goal kicking (or lack of it!) How about on kick-offs? Can either of them kick it deep into the end zone consistently?

    Even with JT Daniels coming in 2019, I sure hope we get a QB in this class. Are there any great athletes out there like Jalen Green that could provide a body for depth his freshman year in this class, but also switch to another position if he wants when JT arrives?

    Garry, does it concern you that we have not practiced enough in full pads?

    I sure hope so. Especially against Stanford.

    It should be very hot at game time. What does the support staff do to help the players from overheating and cramping?

    Hydrating before , during, and after the game...besides, 95 degrees with kickoff at 2:15 could be worse.

    Is Coach KU up in the coach's box or down on the sidelines?

    Knew the limitations, because everyone talked about it before it happened, but nobody said where it ended up. Thanks.

    Surprised that Tilbey, a well-regarded, experienced scholarship punter, may lose his punting job. Has it been a case of Tilbey underperforming or has Budrovich excelled?

    The question I wanted to ask had to do with the front seven especially during run likely situations (goal line stand, 3rd and one, anytime Stanford is running play...) but Arhedge already brought that up so I will ask this:

    If his health is 100%, how much playing time do you see for Greg Johnson in game one and further into the season? Is it reasonable to compare him to a Jack Jones with more on his frame?

    Its nice that we've had all this heat this week to "practice" the importance of hydration and making sure the training staff are doing their job well. All these 95 degree days this week are actually a gift, as we prepare for the scorcher on Saturday.

    OK - we've all read about each of the players, coaches, depth charts, injuries, how they're playing etc. I'd like to know a bit more about the team's personalities....

    Who is the hardest worker (first in/last out guy)?
    Who is the team jokester?
    Most likely to end up as a TV personality after football?
    Who's always smiling?
    Which position coach seems to have the love of his group most?
    Who's the most vocal leader?

    Garry-thanks for all your help!

    Why do you think the ncaa does not go after other teams that have had players admit they got paid while playing as aggressively as they went after USC?
