Tammy: What are you doing this year to give your team an advantage?

Phillip: I have a few tricks up my sleeve. We’re going to have a winning season.

Tammy: Are you going to start Wang?

Phillip: No, I’m redshirting Wang. I want him to sit out his first year so he can sharpen his skills.

Tammy: I’m really surprised. Wang is already a great player and too good to sit on the bench.

Phillip: Trust me, I know what I’m doing. He’ll get an extra year of eligibility and be even better next year.

Tammy: If you say so. What about Schwartz?

Phillip: He’s out for the season. He’s hurt and won’t be able to play.

Tammy: That’s a major blow! He’s your star player, right?

Phillip: He’s a loss, but I have a secret weapon.

Tammy: Oh, yeah?

Phillip: This new player, Pierre, is going to give the other teams a run for their money.

Tammy: Who is he?

Phillip: Just somebody I recruited. Let’s just say he’s talented beyond his years.

Tammy: Huh? You mean he’s a ringer? You’re bringing in a ringer?

Phillip: Of course not. He’s just a little more experienced than my other players and he’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

Tammy: Only if nobody catches on.

Phillip: Catches on to what?
