"This was a good start," said Cutcliffe. "We got a lot of work in. Many jobs have a lot of competition. I like the first day; I hope I want our second day. That's the key to these teams – if they can continue As you look at, we need to find out who is the best 11 on each side of the ball. There is competition. It's a good thing.
