One thing you won’t see in today’s Web Wrap? Exhibition recaps. Much like my ire of writing about matchups against lower Division teams (i.e. NAIA or Division II) I think too much is read from exhibition games.

Didn’t blow out a team by 50? Panic button.

Your star didn’t score 30 points? Panic button.

The only think you should be paying attention to in exhibition games: does anyone get hurt? If the answer is no, your team had a good game.

Here’s today’s web watch.
