Nothing terribly earth shattering but tonight I worked out with the high school head coach of one of our current players and he shared a few nuggets from a conversation they had over the weekend so I thought I'd share:
1. With Hoke they had a catered chef who basically cooked to order whatever the players wanted and they had as much as they liked. He said it was like eating at a 5 star restaurant every day and it was fantastic. With Harbaugh there are basically no meal choices and if you don't like it - that's too bad
2. The past two years the players stayed in nice, new, air-conditioned rooms where they had a lot of space and personal freedom. With Harbaugh they are crammed into an old, dirty, non-air-conditioned room that's hot as hell. Note: where are they exactly? Sounds like my old dorm room.
3. Under Hoke this player had no clue why he'd play, get pulled, start or be benched. He said there was little communication and he was very confused on what got him playing time or what got him pulled from the game. With Harbaugh he knows exactly where he stands on the depth chart every single day (he said it's updated every day) and he knows exactly what the coaches want to see in him to improve his standing.
