THE SOUL have changed their uniforms. After last year's miserable season, they probably ought to burn the old ones. How the team performs with a new coaching staff and an overhauled roster remains to be seen. But at least they'll look snazzy. Dan Raudabaugh (No. 5) is the new quarterback, and he largely will be responsible for putting the 6-12 record the Soul posted in 2011 well into the rearview mirror. New coach Doug Plank and the Soul open the new season on Sunday at New Orleans.
