- This academy is great in helping the players transition from kicking the rugby ball to kicking an american football.
- It allows them to prepare and get an education here in the U.S.
- While it teaches the rules, it does not necessarily teach the strategy in relation to the rest of the game.
- Finally, it also does not teach some of the "what if " scenarios and stress plays that could happen....like what occurred Saturday. His departing comment was that since this was such a big deal and made huge headlines, he would not be surprised if this sort of training was added to the "curriculum".

Locals in the know have always said the ban wasn't about keeping other conferences out of the south. It was meant to protect member schools from cannibalizing and one-upping each other until no one was left unscathed. As my Auburn friend says "Remember, the SEC proudly boasts that it's unofficial motto is "If ya' ain't cheatin', ya ain't tryin."

writer down here in Atlanta - so this is fantastic to see from a local source. As an added bonus, he contributes regularly to the sports talk radio outlets in the Southeast. I am hoping this column comes up numerous times and he speaks to it on these shows= more praise and publicity for Harbaugh and Michigan in enemy territory....by one of their own!!!

but he is getting a pass from people because the offers were from the "Old Regime" and "that's how Alabama does it."

was there anything ever leaked?

at the end of the recruiting dead period. For the guys that are graduating, they have the ability to seek options elsewhere and get in the mix before signing day. For new potential recruits, it helps ease concerns about room in the incoming class, which may turn a few of them our way.

and they had somone on the air during a radio segment yesterday that essentially addressed this same issue. Apparently this guy was familiar with the Kicking Academy that most of these Aussie players attend in preparation to come and play in the U.S. I am paraphrasing here, but in summary, this is what he said:
Again this is a brief summary of what was discussed yesterday.

when the H-back trapped the NT? In the video imbed, it is the first play we run after Harbaugh is banging on Rudock's pads. We ran it a couple of times and got some nice chunks of yardage. Just curious.

and Randy Cross (Former 49'er All Pro lineman) is part of a morning sports talk show here. He commented on this extensivley this morning. He said he has friends in the Jets organization that talked about Bryce Petty not being able to identify pro defenses and couldn't pick out the Mike linebacker when he first got to the Jets camp. He said that instead of being taught to read defenses, some of the college "systems" only teach how to read the receivers in relation to their space on the field ( I am paraphrasisng a 10 minute conversation). He believes this is also one of the reasons RG III has had such a tough time in the NFL. He said that while these are very effective offenses in college because they get playmakers in space, they don't necessarily teach the required nuances of the NFL quarterbacks. He emphatically stated he is not "anti-spread" because the offenses are fun to watch and make the game exciting -- but feels they don't adequately prepare QB's for the NFL.

To me this was the most glaring aspect of the whole game.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Thumbs up to this......||
plodding is the word that comes to mind
|42 weeks 6 days ago||Could not agree more...||
the lack of speed is painfully obvious.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||We were watching the game and kept asking...||
Why do ALL of our RB's look so slow? I know none of them are "burners" per say, but they looked like they were plodding out there. Is it the indecision hitting the hole? TO me that was one of the most glaring aspects of the game.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||I can't believe how slow our RBs look.....||
Is it a lack of speed or indecision hitting holes? They look like they are in slow motion.
|42 weeks 6 days ago||God - our lack of speed at RB||
Is painfully glaring

I live down here in Atlanta and want to get one ordered!
