For the last day before heading out to New Orleans, the Bucs went light going in just shorts and shells as they get ready to battle the Saints.
During the preseason, different captains were picked for each game based on hard work in practice and other varying factors. On Friday, we heard from head coach Dirk Koetter after the team’s walkthrough and he still didn’t have an answer on the subject. Koetter claimed the team didn’t vote on captains.
When asked a follow up question on if the team will vote between now and Sunday’s game, he didn’t give much further.
“What difference does it make?” Koetter said. “Watch the game”.

Sunday’s game against the Saints will be the first in their professional careers for players such as Carlton Davis, M.J. Stewart and Shaun Wilson.
Someone like Davis, who played at a big SEC school in Auburn, is used to the bright lights. But Koetter mentioned that playing in college football and playing in the NFL are very different, especially in those kind of bright lights.
He said that college football is pretty much in slow motion if you compare it to NFL games speed. You also have to take note of shorter halftime in the pro’s.
To wrap things up, Koetter also speaks on how the indoor facility helps in two ways. The facility both helps with the crowd noise that they will definitely hear in the Superdome, and simultaneously fits as the right spot for the team walkthrough before leaving town.
