further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
I'm pretty sure the offense and defense have different sections of the locker room, so you'd have to move over to the defensive section to check for Clark's locker.
Nope, the players weren't segregated anymore. Bill told me that when Hoke first went into the locker room, he was having none of it. They're a team not certain groups within it.
I think both ways are valid points. For example, most offensive lines ALWAYS sit/stand in order from left to right (LT, LG, C, RG, RT). Watch them on the bench sometime, they're just like that. But Brady's way works too from a team uniform standpoint. That's cool.
and that sounds like a better setup anyway, I was surprised that it was segregated before.
Inside the Stadium, doesn't it make sense to segregate the offense and defense? Because the main function of the locker room in the Stadium is to serve as a meeting room during the brief and pressure-packed Halftime periods of games. And at that moment, I expect that Borges and his position coaches are talking to the offense and Mattison and his position coaches are talking to the defense.
It almost seems to me that any other segregation (by graduating class, uniform number, etc.) is less sensible.
The Stadium isn't used for practices for the most part, and nothing that I know of would be more critical to the functioning of the Stadium locker room than game-time/halftime platoon communication.
Bill told me that Brady did not like it being segregated like that. I think it was because he didn't want divisions or cliques within the team. The lockers are now all in numerical order by jersey numbers.
Maybe Hoke figures the fact that they are suspended will sink in better with a touch of finality.
Stole his....sorry couldn't resist! J/k...
I would hope Hoke is just like the rest of the football coaches in America. When the time comes star players will be ready to play.
patient with these latest suspensions. There is a process underway to determine just what occured in each instance; what each player must do to remain on the team; and how to encourage whole team and individual integrity. I have faith that Hoke and staff know what they are doing, and I can wait for it to play out.
is all about life lessons, not just football, I love that man. Screw up any way in life and you gotta bust your ass to get respect back
