Just watched the Elite 11 QB camp on ESPN and found it interesting that they put the campers through some of the same training that Brady Hoke subjected the seniors to earlier in the year!
Shane Morris - Seal-like Training at Elite 11
Does anyone know if this will be an annual thing for the seniors?
But if it has the desired effect, what they lose in plane ticket costs they'll make up for by cutting spending on damage control and supervision of the players.
provided that the band stays home
it will be. hoke has tremendous respect for the SEALS, and i can't imagine a better leadership training getaway than SEAL training.
I think Brady Hoke and Aaron Wellman want to make it an annual occurence.
Always found it ironic that some of our nation's toughest warriors train in one of our country's most beautiful places (Coronado Island)
Absolutely. I hear the waters are astoundingly refreshing.
How is that ironic? Serious question.

Trent Dilfer is no Navy SEAL instructor.
Why do we keep calling it seal training when they spent three days with military personnel but only four hours with SEALS?
harsh downvote for a decent observation...
All this SEAL stuff is pretty ridiculous and smacks of PR. As if the players really glean that much out of a few hours of "training" on a beach in Southern California. It's a boondoggle. I can't believe fans take this seriously.
besides, any SOF training is designed to challenge mental toughness and stamina. I don't know how much your mental toughness can be challenged in 4 hours. Having said that, I'm sure the kids love the opportunity to spend a little bit of time w/ the instructors.
Dear God, run! (Those things are ugly).
My goodness, that's the creepiest thing I've seen in a while
A bit of Olympic related creepiness that is just too good not to share:
I take it back. You win.
Morris never gonna survive UN...LESS, he gets a little, CRAZY!
I thought this thread was going to be about Morris having a summer job at Sea World.
SEa, Air, Land = SEAL.
naw, he'd probably try for the gal and the donkey.
Yeah I'm almost certain that Brady Hoke and Aaron Wellman coneceived this idea one day, while wondering how they could generate some great PR.
I hope Hoke does, don't want our players to be unrulely like the Spartaints..
