We're not gonna have any finesse DB's

New Aggie defensive coordinator Mark Snyder got mic'd up as he led his defensive backs through some individual work, and the Oklahoma drill yesterday.

Snyder said that he is more impressed with the toughness this secondary than any group that he has ever been around. That's impressive considering the Aggies have gotten through just their sixth spring practice.

"It's amazing, some of the programs that I have been in, DB's think they're cool and they backpedal and all they do is cover. Well we'll have no finesse DB's" Snyder said after practice.

Mic'd up in Corvallis (Coach Cav)

Offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh got mic'd up for spring practice in Corvallis yesterday and the results are worth taking a look at.

Coach Cav, who is in his eighth year at Oregon State, has got a thin group to work with in this spring and he says his guys are getting a ton of reps and he's been able to slow things down as well and work in some extra "teach periods" during practice.


Spring highlights at Indiana

Indiana has done a good job all offseason highlighting their off season workout efforts and spring practices, and with their spring game on Saturday they were able to put together a nice highlight of the team getting after it on the practice field.

Well done video starting with the nice serene Bloomington community in the spring, before cutting to the guys putting in work on the field.

When you win championships, you get rings

While the Bearcats were out practicing yesterday in their final practice before the spring game, the Big East championship rings arrived and the team was surprised afterwards with their new bling.

"It's all about, in all sports, is when you win a championship, you get a championship ring because that ring tells a story. It tells a story of all the trials and tribulations that go into winning a championship and the way we do things here is we're going to do things first class." Butch Jones added afterwards

The Bearcats defense finished in the top ten nationally in rushing defense (#6), turnover margin (#9), sacks (#2) and tackles for loss (#1), and you can tell from the interviews with the players in this clip that the coaching staff has them hungry to add another ring this season.

Spurrier up to old antics

Steve Spurrier, entering his eighth season at South Carolina, is ten wins away from becoming the schools all time winningest head coach. He recently sat down with ESPN's Chris Low and in classic Spurrier fashion, just let it rip.

The old ball coach talks about the raised expectations of the South Carolina faithful, his plans for retirement, who has the hardest coaching job in the country, and some fascinating insight on who he thinks is the best coach in the SEC and why.
