The things that stuck out to me in the press conference:
- Franklin's philosophy hasn't changed. He's still talking about big plays more than consistent plays. He seems to want to increase average yds per carry by breaking off big runs, not by consistently getting 4 yds. He seems more concerned about creating turnovers on defense than he is holding opponents to 3 yds per play.
- Franklin is all in on Clifford. He mentions him repeatedly without much discussion of backups like Veilleux.
- Franklin acts like Nourzad is a good athlete but needs more time to develop at this level. Maybe a good backup option by mid season.
