Excellent look inside Jim McElwain's program at Colorado State
Jim McElwain explains in the first few minutes of this All-Access clip inside his program at Colorado State that they don't approach everything surrounding the program from a traditional mindset.
"We do a lot of different things here that you wouldn't think of as general football. We like to keep things loose a little bit." McElwain explained.
When a video opens up with a coach (presumably not Coach Mac) in a Halloween mask initiating the Harlem Shake before the spring game, chances are it's going to be a good one, and this four minute clip provides a quality look into what Coach Mac and his staff are trying to put together and how they're doing it.

Kansas State video highlights the importance of family
Every head coach preaches the importance of family at one time or another, and down in Manhattan, Bill Snyder and his staff live it.
Take a look at this well done video that outlines the history of Kansas State football, filled with memorable highlights from years past along with the message "Nothing is more important than family, and this one is yours".
That message is followed by flashing statements describing what a family does. Pretty powerful stuff.
Video: Southern Miss staff has some fun to wrap up spring ball
Todd Monken and his staff down at Southern Miss put together a few fun activities for their guys to blow off some steam after their last spring practice.
Players competed in a punt catch competition, as well as a dizzy punt event, and then a few guys had to find a football in a pile of bags and dummies. Our personal favorite was the last one, where Monken pitted an offensive player against a defensive player to find the football in the pile of bags and the winning side got an all you can eat BBQ dinner.
There's just one catch...there was no ball.
This is what happens when a phone rings during a Les Miles presser
A reporter's phone goes off during Les Miles' post spring game press conference and of course Les picks it up.
This is a perfect example of what has become known as "pure Les Miles".
Video: ECU ends spring game with 8 year old cancer patient scoring
We've seen a handful of teams bring a young fan battling adversity on the field to live out a dream a few times already this spring, yet everytime it gives us chills.
Over the weekend eight year old Noah Roberts, who is battling cancer was the latest spring game star, taking the final snap of ECU's spring game to the house.
As ECU offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley pointed out after the scrimmage, it brought a tear to his eye, and we'd be willing to bet that he wasn't the only one in attendance fighting back tears.
"If you don't have goosebumps or a tear in your eye, you might want to check your pulse after that one." Riley added.
Head coach Ruffin McNeil also looks to Noah for inspiration noting, "When I think of Noah, I forget any kind of hurt of complaint or pain that I may have."
Video: Brian Kelly loses bet, puts defensive lineman at QB for a play
Earlier in the year Brian Kelly made an academic bet with nose tackle Louis Nix. As the spring game got closer, Kelly realized that he was going to end up on the losing end of the bet and asked Nix what he wanted in return.
Nix answered with what any 340 pound defensive lineman would want from their head coach....an opportunity to score in the spring game.
Kelly explained the situation in his post game presser, and video of the big man touchdown can be seen below.
Who doesn't like to see a big fella score (especially on a quarterback draw out of a five wide receiver set)?
West Virginia breaks out new uniforms
Until this year, West Virginia and Cal had always employed very similar uniform styles. Part of that is inevitable when two schools employ the exact same color scheme, but if the Mountaineers and Golden Bears ever met in a bowl game, things could have gotten confusing.
Cal has already done its part to change that by breaking out a new look earlier this month, and now West Virginia follows suit. Instead of a month-long build up and a flashy reveal by the athletic director and a Nike executive, the Mountaineers busted out their new kits via Dana Holgorsen's Twitter account.
Here is the debut video:
And another, explaining the details of West Virginia's new look, which offers 27 different uniform combinations.
Assumption College gives young fan a 'Jack Hoffman moment'
The star of the 2013 college football spring season is without a doubt seven-year-old Nebraska fan Jack Hoffman. Turns out, the Huskers aren't the only program to give a young fan a "Jack Hoffman moment".
First, a little backstory. The Greyhounds, a Division II program in Worcester, Mass., partnered with Team IMPACT, a Northeast-based non-profit organization based on improving the lives of children stricken with life-threatening diseases. Partnering with the program, Assumption drafted little Yan Perez, diagnosed with with a brain tumor called Choroid Plexus Carcinoma in August 2008 when he was just six months old. Not only that, they drafted his brother Jose, too.
The Perez family is from Florida, but travels to Massachusetts to seek treatment for Yan's tumor.
Now that the backstory is established, let's watch the magic happen at Assumption's spring game last Saturday.
