Our insiders are giving us a steady diet of great practice info, coaches are generous with time and quotes, which is great. We keep hearing from players, as well. All seem to indicate that the team has trained harder, run more, stretched more than under the prior regime. They are hitting more in practice, going “good on good” in practice, the CCM is not afraid to enjoy players practicing so hard that they even tussle some. He was disappointed that it didn’t rain MORE, to see how the team would react!
Is there any doubt that he will have 2-a-days as much as is allowed? and that he’ll be praying for 110 degree weather?
I love this stuff, as it just has to have our team physically and mentally more prepared to play good football.
Then I think back to CBB practices-I only watched the Red-White games in person, and they were so pitifully boring that I actually didn’t go last year, just no sense in watching our 1’s roll over the backups, then a FG kickoff, then throw to ball to a news anchorwoman/mascot. My kids were always BEGGING to leave in the second qtr.
He also didn’t have 2-a days as much as he could have. didn’t measure 40 times or run the kids as much.
And when MIssouri trash talked the stink out of us, we went up their and rolled over like an inbred Cocker Spaniel.
We couldn’t finish off any games. Talked a big talk, carried a tiny stick, didn’t walk the walk, all that stuff.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence. I do think that we have better players than our record showed last year. I really wholeheartedly believe that “coaching matters”, tremendously. I really believe that we’ll be a much better team this fall. I think 7-5 is a probability and 8-4 a possibility.
I haven’t bet on athletics in about 20 years, but if Vegas has our season W-L total under 7, them I’m gonna lay down some money, like DD on a hot-streak at Oaklawn, lol
