On Your Mark; Get Set...

WEST BLOOMFIELD (MI) -- The tipoff of the one and only Dayton Flyers’ exhibition game is 4 days away. There is still a lot we don’t know about this squad, such as details on the teams’ ‘secret scrimmage’ with Northern Kentucky over the weekend. Among some of the questions surrounding the 2017-18 edition of the Red & Blue are:

-- Is Kostas ready to rock?
-- Josh Cunningham -- is he fully healed and ready to dominate?
-- Will Darrell Davis take on the mantle of senior leadership?
-- How will the newcomers perform?
-- Will AG be more willing to play zone than Archie?
-- Who will be the X factor on this squad (beyond the obvious answer of one X Williams)?

“FTS” will be there on Saturday night and I’ll be staying over to participate in the "2nd Annual Twitter All-Star Pickup Extravaganza" hosted by David Jabolonski of The Dayton Daily News at 5:00 pm on Sunday at McAfee Sports Center in Beavercreek.

Speaking of Jablonski, he and his DDN cohorts been busy cranking out a ton of pre-season Flyer content. Such as:
