Roger Brown's First & 10: Changes in the wind
AFTER New Hampshire stretched its Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl winning streak to 12 games by beating Vermont 62-24 last summer, the game's organizers searched for a solution that would help level the playing field.
"I don't like it," Thomas said. "We have a lot of pride in this state, and I'd rather have our best play their best. To me, this gives New Hampshire a built-in excuse."
"I can see how some people would question why we should have the same number of players from Division I as Division VI, but I like the idea of getting more lower-division kids on the roster," Kershaw said. "These kids are all all-stars."
CHANGE OF VENUE: Both teams practiced at Castleton State College in Vermont this year, after using Kimball Union Academy in Meriden as a practice site for six years. No practice site has been chosen for next year's game.
"It comes down to how much you want to install," Kershaw said. "If I had two or three more days I would have installed more stuff. About midweek I had to make a call and see how much the kids had absorbed. I wouldn't mind a couple more days, but we didn't need to put any more in."
