My season ticket holder neighbor and I were talking about this very subject at the game yesterday as it seemed to both of us that the ladies seemed a bit slower than we remember from last year. We wondered if training fatigue could be a factor but this article would say not. We both agreed that at least one of the outside mids was especially gassed early in the game and appeared to be giving up the ball prematurely, and inaccurately, rather than making a move herself. The heat could have been a factor but the heat-accustomed FSU players clearly were faster at key times.

Interesting article. It is apparent that his methods work because the Pilots are noticeably more fit than most of their opponents.

Appearing gassed early in the game easily could be a sign of nerves, not lack of conditioning.
