What do you know about coaching?
|2 weeks 6 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.
|3 weeks 21 hours ago||What?||
You mean to tell me that you can exchange your points for stuff? I've been doing this wrong.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not according to the depth||
Not according to the depth chart...
Pettway does not start. Jarran Reed does, all 315 lbs of him.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||One of Bama's DE's is 315.||
One of Bama's DE's is 315.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Taco could be 284 by next||
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?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yes.||
Wisconsin does run a 3-4.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I've never had a problem with||
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.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Homemade or instant?||
Homemade or instant?
|3 weeks 4 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.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Suicide is the 10th leading||
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.

LOL. The butkus finalist argument.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Where are all the people who||
Where are all the people who complained about moving Ryan to MLB?
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I think we agree it was the||
I think we agree it was the right thing to do, just shouldn't have had too.
|9 weeks 1 hour ago||This is not basketball. He||
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.
|9 weeks 20 hours 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.
|9 weeks 20 hours 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?
|9 weeks 23 hours 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.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||He had a good week of||
He had a good week of practice.
|9 weeks 4 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.
|11 weeks 2 hours 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.
|11 weeks 4 hours 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" ?
|11 weeks 4 hours 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.
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||I am a Panthers fan and I||
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.
|17 weeks 21 hours ago||I could be wrong, but I||
I could be wrong, but I believe that Bellomy signals in plays. He doesn't carry around his helmet and he can't just run off to get it. Someone has to understand the situation and make sure he gets it. Who is in charge of that I don't know.
|21 weeks 17 hours ago||Their offense has no excuse,||
Their offense has no excuse, I agree. You have to admit that they have very little depth on the dline.
|21 weeks 18 hours ago||Not really. Depth is always||
Not really. Depth is always important and Wisconsin has lost two of their three starting d-linemen.
|21 weeks 18 hours ago||Kind of agree. However, I||
Kind of agree. However, I think what you are seeing are the benefits of oversigning.
|23 weeks 5 hours ago||Football isn't hard?||
You seem to be forgetting that the defense isn't going to just let you engage them and drive them off the line. Saban makes things easy? Obviously you don't know much about his defense.
