"We're staying out there so they have the marshmallows and the graham crackers ready and the bonfire going," Smith said. "Someone has the karaoke machine with 'Kumbaya' all ready to go and we're just going to sleep in sleeping bags ... and have a good old time."


Man, what is Smitty talking about.

Best part of the article


Smith, for one, is taking a lighthearted approach to what he jokingly refers to as "camping out."
"We're staying out there so they have the marshmallows and the graham crackers ready and the bonfire going," Smith said. "Someone has the karaoke machine with 'Kumbaya' all ready to go and we're just going to sleep in sleeping bags ... and have a good old time."
Rivera said he likes that players aren't complaining about the move because it shows some mental toughness and dedication to the task at hand, which is winning the season opener.
"We can easily accept (the move) and say it's a reason why or we can say it's the reason because," Rivera said. "That's the way I look at it. That's my whole point. I'm going to leave it at that."

"We scouted a few places in the Tampa area and IMG made the most sense," Hurney said. "The facility offers the privacy and infrastructure that we need to prepare for the season opener."

I love it. I think a great way to stregthen a team is to keep putting them in unfamiliar enviroments. Pretty soo they'll see the only thing constant through the season is their teamates and coaching staff. They will learn to lean on one another and rely on one another. it also helps them focus on the game rather than where they are giving them a more adaptive mindtset.

That is actually a damn good idea. Road season openers....."Road trip!!!"
It would tie up the final team camaraderie.

i was thinking just in tampa and at IMG, but yeah, that would work.

i try to go down to sarasota for a week every year and it would be cool to time it with their trip and the game there. probably a better environment there than a lot of places they could go. it would be a good way to start the season, though.

I REALLLLLLLLY, REALLLLLLLLLLY, REALLLLLLLLLLLLY hope we pull this win out and then follow it up against New Orleans with another W. Of course as fans, we want to win every game, but realistically, it would be so important to start out the season 2-0 with both wins being divisional.

Every time we've started the season with a divisional loss, it seems to linger a lot longer than it would otherwise.
