Marrone does up-downs at practice
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
After a 5-7 season last year, the word of the off season seems to have been "accountability" for Doug Marrone at Syracuse.
So after a mistake during practice yesterday, Marrone held himself accountable and did a handful of down ups.
After forgetting what session came next, practice grinded to a halt while Marrone got his bearings. Next thing you know Marrone drops to the ground and reps out five down ups.
“I made a mistake. We hold the players accountable for their own actions, so if I make a mistake I have to hold myself accountable just like the players,” Marrone explained.
When a reporter asked the last time he had done up-downs, he had to flash back to his playing days.
“Probably when Coach Mac was here. We would have to do 25 before each practice. Coach Mac would’ve been proud. I don’t know if I could have done 25, but the ones I did were to Coach Mac’s standards.”
