In a group conversation with Shannon at a Canesfest when he was our defensive coordinator, he was asked about playing freshmen. He was adamant about not playing them because they cannot be trusted to carry out their assignments. He went on to say that playing one would be as a last resort. Now that he will be calling the shots at UF I'm guessing his philosophy will remain the same. Conversely our staff is not afraid to put true freshmen on the field and coach them up.
