Yeah I saw. I actually came out very impressed with MNW this time. They were able to run on IMG for the most part. Special teams killed them. With some more games under their belt MNW will run through FL IMO.
Some kids today would be shocked if they knew what hs athletes did in the past, excelling in multiple sports. No doubt kids today are stronger and the talent pool in individual sports is deeper. But I would argue that there were many athletes of yesterday who were better overall athletes than some of today.
The endurance of some football players today, even in the NFL, pales in comparison to many rugby or soccer players. Many great hs football players of yesterday were also great hs wrestlers, whereby a lot of hs linemen I see today today could not make it half way through a wrestling practice at one of the hs wreslting powerhouses without ending up on the floor gasping for air.
