Strange time at NSU

When writing the Northwestern State season preview, I found it weird to be talking about guys like Brandon Morgan, Bobby Barbier, Scott Pittenger and Michael Palermo in the past tense.

Those four players were part of a deep, talented class of Demons who played the majority of the last four seasons. Day in and day out, you could find them in coach Mitch Gaspard's lineup.

But therein lies the beauty of college sports -- you get to watch players grow and mature on the field and off it, but after a certain number of years they're gone.

Of course, if I think it's weird to not see an NSU lineup with those names in it, I can only imagine how coach Mitch Gaspard is going to feel tomorrow between 3 and 4 p.m. when he fills out that lineup card.
