Behind the scenes: Texas A&M uniform reveal

Pretty neat video here from 12thManTV showing some behind the scenes footage from their big uniform unveiling last week.

The clip really captures how excited the players are for the new look, and some of the secrecy that it takes to keep everything under wraps.

UMass to wear black uniforms?

Over the weekend, UMass Magazine rolled out their summer issue with an advertisement for UMass season tickets inside, featuring the picture below.

According to Bob McGovern of Maroon Muskets, the Minutemen will be sporting the black on black look during their inaugural FBS season. The full advertisement can be seen here.

Summer MMA Circuit, 10 stations, 21 minutes

Plano John Paul II high school (TX) strength coach James Burk has his guys mixing in some MMA style training this Summer. We hear the kids enjoy the change of pace and the coaches like the results they are seeing.

10 stations, 30 seconds of work, 30 seconds of recovery, 2 reps...10 second transitions...total elapsed time of just over 21 minutes.

Dabo: "You can't practice this game half speed"

The frame of Clemson's new $10 million indoor facility is up, and the added flexibility that it is going to provide the Tigers has Dabo Swinney pretty jacked up.

Soon enough they will no longer have to take cover during bad weather and lose an hour of valuable practice time.

"A siren will go off, you’re going what the heck, and you’re shut down for 45 minutes before you can even think about going out. Well, we work on a 20-hour rule. (Players have) study halls, tutors, a lot of stuff. We go to class here. It’s a lot to balance. You have a certain window to get your work in.”

"For me, at this level, (the indoor facility) is a huge need for us. Because of the edge other people are gaining by having that. They never miss a day. So for us, we’re never going to miss a day of work.”

With their current setup, practicing in the rain becomes a major safety concern because Swinney and the coaching staff don't want to risk injuries practicing outdoors.

"We can’t go full-speed, and you can’t practice this game half-speed. Just doesn’t work. Not on a Tuesday, Wednesday, you’ve got to play an opponent on game day. Especially if they’ve been able to practice at a tempo at which you need to practice. It’s going to be awesome. Many other things we can benefit from, and we’re going to use it for a lot of other things.”

The window for completion looks like December...just in time for possible bowl preparations.
