"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Do you have the citation you could link me for that on the website?

Where did you get that 20-30lb number? What does combined mean?
|47 weeks 6 days ago||Back to back||
Going to Homewood and then playing Cornell back to back is going to be rough. Like the pacing of the rest of the schedule though. Good variance in opponent quality.

302 w/ Hooker headers.

That would probably get crushed in the winters.

I just see so much resistance from Duke, UNC, UVA. Losing MD would essentially eliminate their mini conference. Would they go the independant route like Hop, or would they tag onto other conferences?
|1 year 46 weeks ago||How do you mean||
How do you mean "automatically"? If Sparty goes D1, does Maryland just cease to exist in the ACC?
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Not much for moment||
I'm pretty sure it won't have much an affect unless B1G adds another good lacrosse program. Currently, with Michigan, PSU, OSU and the additions of RU and MD the conference would need another program or three to make an entirely viable conference.
Big East (losing Rutgers) goes to: Georgetown, ND, Villanova, Syracuse, Providence, and St. Johns
ECAC (losing Mich/OSU) goes to: Air Force, Bellarmine, Fairfield, Hobart, Loyola, and Denver
ACC (losing MD) goes to: Duke, UNC, and UVA
CAA (losing PSU) goes to: Drexel, Hofstra, St. Joes, Towson, Delaware, and UMass
The B1G could pick up Marquette when they go D1 in a couple years, or try and steal another school, but I'm not sure which would make sense. Also MD doesn't want to bail on the ACC tournament, which is pretty awesome end of year stuff. Also, there are 7 AQ slots for the NCAA tourney (which does not include ACC), which might have to be altered if a power team like MD, or solid teams like PSU and OSU move around. I bet nothing happens for a couple years until Michigan gets good (or doesn't) enough to get some leverage.
Also, adding all the ACC schools would mean Michigan pretty much gets slaughtered forever.

Marina to Inner Richmond to Palo Alto? Seems like a hell of a lot of moving around.

I agree that for fans, it's essentially meaningless. I have coached S&C on the NCAA level, and currently still work in the field, and without being involved on a daily basis most fans either know just enough to proclaim the coach "The Best/Worst Ever" without understanding what is actually going on behind the scenes.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Slightly disagree||
I pretty strongly disagree with your first point. While obviously the appropriately developed skill set is necessary for any sport, high level S&C combined with high level effort makes a huge difference. One athlete with higher rate of force production combined with a higher maximal force will have a significant advantage over an equally skilled player. Football specific, you can watch as much film as you want (and should), but you want the MLB who can squat 500lb at 250 bodyweight over the MLB who can't do that. It may not make you better at "playing" your sport, but it will give you the best opportunity to apply your skillset appropriately.

Question for you....I'm a Strength Coach/PT myself, and *might* be moving to AA in the Summer/Fall of next year, but I'm looking to get something kind of locked up in a few months. Is there someone I should contact at the gym to see if they are interested in my res/personal statment, or can I email you back and forth for a bit? Despite my extremely new acct, I've been around the site for a looong time.
