I think he said that he had a "few lost toys."
VIDEO: Michigan Drill
No. Douglas was just upset he lost the michigan drill to a 5'8 wideout, so he calls him a little ass boy. Gallon handled that. easily
If I didn't hate winter so much I would say let skip spring and summer.
Withdrawals!! Must. See. More. Football.
Sure are a lot of people doing nothing.
I logged in to comment the same thing. I mean, there are 15-20 ppl involved in the drill at a time (the matchup pairs, RB, QB). Why are the other 100 people standing around? I guess they can gain a little bit by watching and hearing the evaluations after ...
Makes you wonder when you read articles about Chip at Oregon and how one of the reasons he has the hurry up offense is so that he can get more reps in at practice. When practice hours are a precious limited commodity, you'd think they would be used in the most efficient fashion possible.
It depends on your definition of "efficient."
Practice and athletics are about competition, not just technique. If you go into a practice and all you concentrate on for 2 hours a day or 20 hours a week is technique, the players are going to get bored. You have to play with emotion and desire. How do you replicate that type of competition and excitement if you have everybody working and nobody standing around to watch?
The point of this drill is not only to work technique, but to get players excited, get the defensive guys rooting for their defensive teammates, get the offensive players rooting for their offensive teammates, and figure out which guys are ready to step up to the challenge. An offensive line coach can sit there for 30 minutes and talk about weight distribution, stance, hand placement, leverage, footwork, etc. - anything you want to hear about technique - but sometimes you just have to line the guys up and see which ones are ready to smack each other.
Frankly, I think comments like this show that you don't understand how coaches operate and why they do certain things in practice.
I might also add that really good coaches also then go and tend to their anonymous blog and post daily semi-nude coeds.
It seems like a good number of your posts seem to take shots at me. You're bordering on the obsession that a couple other posters have shown...or maybe you're just one of their alternate accounts.
I was thinkn the same. I believe it's a fun team building drill as much as 1 on 1. Offense v. Defense
I was kind of hoping to see Wile and Gibbons line up against each other at some point in the video.
passion and intensity. Wish we could've seen Franky go.
Frank Clark on Braxton Miller was the best Michigan Drll from last season, albeit in a losing effort.
Just wait until he hits Braxton again but with twenty- thirty more pounds of muscle.
are many from the coaches clinic I believe. This is a tough drill for the D since the back just needs to make a pretty basic read with no other considerations. A "win" isn't necessarilly making a tackle in this drill for the D. Might be more of the definition of victory for the DB's because they often have the last shot. An internal lineman can win by keeping the OL off of the LB when you think of the overall defense. Very impressed with Godin in the two clips. He played high a lot in high school (which is typical of HS kids). Bosch looked very good. Hell, they all looked pretty good for a drill. Still trying to figure out who #18 was running the ball - I don't see two 18's listed on the roster.
is Countess. Must be a walk on.
