Wild countdown

Darius Fudge returns to lead the ground game.With the signing of Jake Sharp, and the return of stars like Darius Fudge, Clinton Solomon and Randy Kelly, the Wild enjoyed a productive and news-worthy off-season.

I’m guessing that people who had never heard of the Wild or the IFL read with interest about the recent acquisition of Sharp. The big fish that got away was QB Todd Reesing, although his signing seemed like a longshot. With Dixie Wooten let go, unproven Alex Rouse is the apparent starter now. (Derek Rasmussen flashbacks, anyone? “No comparison,” coach Ken Matous said.) 

The start of the season is quickly approaching. The Wild will hold team meetings on Feb. 19 and 20, with practices starting on the 21st.
