07:34 AM ET 07.01 | By playing only one sport at Notre Dame, Max Redfield will be specializing to some extent, though not entirely. [Redfield] played no fewer than three sports the past four years at Mission Viejo (Calif.) High. ... His hope is to be juggling football duties when the Irish open the season with Temple on Aug. 31, as a safety, a special teams stalwart (he blocked four punts for Mission Viejo last season) and -- yes, a wide receiver. "The coaches talked to me about playing both ways a little bit," Redfield said. "They said if I could get the defense down, they might throw me in at receiver every now and then. A wide range of other schools offered me a chance to play receiver and safety as well. Any way I can get on the field, I want to do it."

Agreed.

Make 'em play both ways and earn their keep.

Old school, big boy football right there.

Hey, give me some credit. I kept a straight face when I wrote that.

But, it would be nice to see some "Iron Man" football again and let those that can play some both ways.

That would do away with the schools having two players with the same jersey number (one for O and one for D)...unless NCAA started letting them have triple digits...LOL

When I run the NCAA, eleven will be reserved for PKs. All PKs will be required to wear number 11.

Oh I agree....should be more "Iron Men" around..but then a team couldn't have the same number.

OU had 10 for Tom Wort (LB) and 10 for Landry Jones (QB, I think)

But I digress.... LOL

DC, you may be getting the hang of this, but, a little more obtuse word play, and the mods'll leave your retort on the threads.

Nah, still just an amateur.

I do seem to irritate the mods...but that one wasn't bad, was it?

No, it wasn't. It probably caught the eye of one of the zealous, government indoctrinated Chinese contractors.

Go Irish! We gonna roll this year!

It's just the dang kids today, get all confused about "playing both ways". Things just ain't what they used to be!
