Biggest concern is team leadership if Fox doesn't return,
I don't know the kid(man), but the effusive praise from Lars and a myriad of his teammates provides good insight into what a special person and teammate he is. Losing Jared hurts in this regard as well but my sense is Jared brought a different value set to the captain role. Perhaps related to this is complacency after winning the Championship and enduring a year with all the strict protocols, lack of socialization and the like. I think it will be a huge challenge to avoid some of the kids letting their guards down a bit. No doubt expectations will remain high but the edge needed to win requires a lot of discipline and desire that is hard to maintain.
