What you can learn from Late Night


Bryan Harsin mic'd up at Texas

Second year co-offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Bryan Harsin gets the mic'd up treatment during a recent practice in the clip above.

Harsin spends the first part of the clip harping on mechanics to his quarterbacks before moving on to coach up the rest of the skill players later on. 

Plenty of great coaching points and lines throughout the clip including the following line while working with a quarterback.

"Just like that right there... Your like a PEZ dispenser right now, just spitting 'em out."




Sark: When I hired Tosh, I was waiting for the magic potion

According to defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi, there's many differences between coaching with Steve Sarkisian at Washington and coaching at Cal.

One difference that Lupoi pointed out during a recent "Raise the Woof" event was slurpess. Yes...slurpees.

"How about this event. Freaking awesome man. The tables, the pom-poms, the lights out here."

"We were just doing a walk-through here. Unbelievable. From the place he mentioned [Cal], I wasn't going to bring it up. But from the place I just came from, I remember when we finished up our scrimmage, our mock game, we get slurpees." Lupoi told the crowd.

While introducing Tosh, Sark explained that he had often wondered how Cal was pulling in so many quality recruits while Tosh was there.

"Everytime I'd always see Cal getting these guys ... I'm like how is Cal..the CAL BEARS! They haven't been to the Rose Bowl in a hundred and eighty-eight years. Like how are they getting anybody?"

"So I hire this guy by the name of Tosh Lupoi, and I'm waiting for some like magic potion," Sark explained. "The reality of it is we're getting good players, and he's part of it, but he does it because he works really hard at it and it matter to him. He works at it and does a great job, he's a tremendous asset not only as a recruiter but what he's done with our defensive line and the rapport that he has with those players and how they're playing."

It will take a moment to load the entire clip, but listening to Sark introduce Tosh, and then Tosh taking over is worth it. Start at about the 66:55 mark of the clip.




Kiffin: No more walk-throughs for visitors in the Coliseum

According to the LA Times, USC will no longer make the Coliseum available to opponents for walk-throughs the day before games.

"It shouldn’t be a big deal. We don’t go to other people’s stadiums.” Kiffin explained.

Any other D-I programs out there doing this? Thoughts?




Stanford video: "We don't remember days, only moments"

Stanford opens up at 10 tonight against San Jose State on the Pac-12 Network.

Pretty good video here that starts off with a solid speech and wraps up with preseason highlight. The speech gets started with the following line.

"In the sweeping story of every life...we don't remember days, only moments."




Craziest play from last night's action

Kent State punts to Towson last night, and while telling everyone to get away, the punt takes a bounce and grazes the Towson returner.

What happened next can only be explained by watching the clip and listening to the play by play announcers, who had to take a moment to realize what they were seeing.

After it was all said and done, the 58 yard wrong way return was brought back to the 7 yard line since muffed punts can't be advanced.




State of Utah impressive last night

Three FBS teams from the state of Utah opened up their season last night in impressive fashion.

Utah rolled Northern Colorado 41-0, Utah State beat Southern Utah 34-3 and BYU beat Washington State 30-6.

That's a combined score of 105-9, and no touchdowns allowed, for FBS teams from the state of Utah last night.




Leach: We can't have all these basset hound looking faces

BYU got the best of Washington State last night, winning 30-6.

However, Mike Leach saw some promise. "We're a lot closer than we realize," he noted afterwards.

"We've got to be a mentally tougher team. Any time we were about to ignite or catch fire, something negative would happen."

"We can't have all theses basset hound looking faces on the sideline as coaches, we've got to improve that."

Leach said that it was tough for them to put a string of good plays together.

"We squandered too many plays. We'd get a play or two going and look pretty good, and then we'd squander two more and never really got into a rhythm."




Video: Handling high expectations at USC

Really good video here from Lane Kiffin and USC about how they're handling high expectations.

"There's no conversations around here about where we're ranked or any of that going on, on a daily basis. We confronted that the first day of camp and made sure our guys understood that has nothing to do with your success, that's just what people view you as." Kiffin explains.

"This will be about hard work, just like training camp was, and great preparation, and nothing else will have anything else to winning games."
