What are the rules regarding coaching contact with players outside of the season and Spring Football? What is RR allowed to do now, prior to Spring Ball? The rest of his staff?
I am particularly interested to know if there are restrictions on Barwis? It seems like it would be reasonable to the NCAA that athletes have what amounts to a personal trainer helping in general fitness, so that they don't injure themselves, or waste time building muscles that don't help on the field. Is Barwis having a full impact on the freshman who have already enrolled, especially Campbell? I would guess that all those who have been through a year of conditioning know what to expect, and already are having an impact on incoming players. As an aside, how much will Barwis have an impact on Forcier? If Forcier can throw and think and knows the playback and can react quickly in gametime situations, how much does his strength matter, other than being basically fit.
I'm curious if Barwis has given a workout regimen to incoming freshman still in high school. For instance, you can do an awful lot with that big torture ball (see recent vids of this on this very site.) Will Ricardo Miller and Jeremy Jackson be allowed to use the Michigan weightroom this summer? Can they practice with the current team unofficially, even though they'll be at Huron in the Fall? I remember having the sense that Harbaugh picked up an awful lot just by being around the team via his dad.
When does Spring Ball begin?
