It's a pretty standard way to perform a shotgun snap. If done properly the QB will catch the ball with his hand on the laces.

I tore my ACL playing football, tried to play and tore up my meniscus pretty bad. Doctor said I would need my knee replaced sometime around 40. Have dislocated both shoulders multiple times. I had surgery on the right one to repair a 270 degree labral tear, doc said it was the most stitches he had ever put in a shoulder. The shoulder surgery was, in my opinion way worse as far as pain and length of recovery. Which is why the left one isn't getting fixed unless I have too.

What do you know about coaching?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||I love these quotes about||
I love these quotes about incoming freshmen and how they don't go in the weight room the first three weeks.
"Somebody is going to break; it’s inevitable.”
"The stress of having to compete when they’re already fatigued is almost emotionally traumatic."
Winter conditioning should be fun.

You mean to tell me that you can exchange your points for stuff? I've been doing this wrong.

Not according to the depth chart...
Pettway does not start. Jarran Reed does, all 315 lbs of him.

One of Bama's DE's is 315.

Taco could be 284 by next season and Poggi could be 280 by next season. You combine that with the other guys and that is a damn good two deep, which you have to have.
So if your theory is that you need huge guys to beat OSU, would you care to explain to me why Bama just got run over for 280+ yards?
|16 weeks 3 hours ago||Yes.||
Wisconsin does run a 3-4.

I've never had a problem with my guys focusing on the sideline.
What do you consider a complicated adjustment? If I am making major adjustments, that means we were not prepared.
We will use halftime to go over and refine any adjustments made.

Homemade or instant?
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Why wait?||
Why would you wait to make adjustments? If you are a good coach, you are always making little adjustments based on what the other team is doing.
In college and pro's it is really easy. You have your entire unit on the sideline and are talking to them about what is going on and what you need to fix. Every coach is wearing a headset, so communication between coaches is extremly easy.
Also, as mentioned, talent and depth are a big deal. If your DT's are getting destroyed, there is only so much you can do.

The OP said "he might not have done this because of football related concussions?"
I was simply providing some information on the fact that this is a very real problem outside of sports.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US., causing over 40,000 deaths in 2012. Every 13 minutes someone is committing suicide. Suicide and depression are a problem everywhere, not just football, hockey or wrestling.

I think we agree it was the right thing to do, just shouldn't have had too.

This is not basketball. He had to slow it down, because they went up tempo and we were not prepared for it. Hoke is entirely to blame for it, it is his job to make sure they are prepared.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Serious Question||
Do we know for sure that Nuss had a blank check? I just have this weird feeling that Nuss is being hindered by what Hoke thinks Michigan football should look like.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Interesting couple of post.||
Interesting couple of post. Starts off with saying "fuck him" about a 17-18 year old making a choice about where he will play football and ends with "You're only as good as you're word".
What do your words say about you?
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Players don't like||
Players don't like conditioning, so Hoke doesn't make them do it. Remember he's a nice guy, players coach.

|22 weeks 3 days ago||Panthers fan here and you are||
Panthers fan here and you are so correct. I don't think most people understand how much talent walked out the door after last season. Basically they just added Benjamin and a bunch of scrubs.
I was never a big fan of Cam and you are correct about him not being that accurate, but behind this line he is screwed. I think they should shut him down before he gets broken physically and/or mentally.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||I asked this question||
I asked this question already, but which injuries are you talking about? It is football, people get hurt, which ones are the results of S&C.
"a troubling lack of physicality" that is not the job of the S&C coach. That is the job of the head coach.
It's hard to determine the physical abiltiy of players on the field, when they are poorly coached. Again, it doesn't matter how gifted of an athlete you are, if you are poorly coached, have poor technique and are out of postition it doesn't matter. You keep talking about what you can see. If see a poorly coached football team. They look slow at times, because of a little thing call "paralysis by analysis". They think to much, do not trust themselves on their reads/ assignments which causes them to react slowly.
I also have sports injuries. I've torn my ACL and have dislocated both shoulders multiple times and required surgery for those. Does that mean my high school football coach didn't train me correctly?
You are just looking everything through one lense. I see things differently because I coach football, while also being a S&C coach. Are we as athletic as OSU or Bama? Hell no, but if you watch some of the guys from high school, some of this isn't suprising. Smith is exactly what we thought he was, a straight a head pounder with average speed. Wellmen is not going to make him Barry Sanders.
How do you explain Taylor Lewan's numbers by the way? He killed it at the combine last year, just luck I suppose.
People just want to argue? Dude, read the title.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Just so we are clear, you do||
Just so we are clear, you do not know what Wellmen has going on inside his program, but yet "there is a better way than what's going on now" ?
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Questions||
You keep talking about keeping the players safe and that is great, but what injuries are you blaming on Wellmen? We don't even know what half the injuries are, we are just guessing and reading tweets. Is it Wellmen's fault Peppers has bone chips in his knee (assuming that is the injury)? It appears Morgan broke his hand/wrist or something, is that on the S&C coach? Morris' concussion? Green's broken collarbone? Hill's broken jaw? Are you going to blame him for Pipkins ACL last year, when he was rolled up on?
You also claim that S&C is one of the main factors to football success. There is some truth to that, but if you are not putting those strong, fast players in the right position it doesn't matter. If you are not teaching the correct technique, it does not matter. If they are thinking more than reacting, it does not matter. I was on a coaching staff once were we had five seniors who played college football on offense. All big, strong, explosive, fast dudes. We averaged 7 points a game vs teams with a winning record. Had nothing to do with S&C and everything to do with coaching.
By the way, I am also the strength and conditioning coordinator.

I am a Panthers fan and I agree. He had no idea how to use Cam. I was thrilled when he got the Browns job.
