Video: Communicating effectively

Jon Jancek took over as the defensive coordinator at Cincinnati back in January of 2010 and led one of the more dominant defenses in college football last season. Last year the Bearcats led the nation in tackles for loss (8.62 per game), was 2nd nationally in sacks (3.46 per game), and 9th in turnover margin (.92).

A large part of that success is how Jancek has focused on communicating with his players, which you see first hand in the clip below. 

"I have to communicate with them in a way that doesn't damage their self esteem, doesn't damage the type of person that they are, but they certainly leave practice, or after a game knowing what they did wrong, what's expected, what they did well, and continue to grow."

Jancek also talks about observing how his son's freshman coaching staff teaches and how that has helped him keep things in perspective as a coach.

Watch the turf get ripped out at Missouri

Back in February, Missouri athletic director Mike Alden told fans about a $1.5 million project that would transform the playing surface at the Faurot Field to include a larger midfield Tiger logo as well as the addition of SEC logo's.

Earlier today, Missouri released an inside look of the old stuff getting torn upover the past week. The new and improved surface should be rolled out soon.

The stadium without turf is an odd sight, considering in a few months the stadium will be packed with 70,000 fans when the Tigers open up with Southeastern Louisiana, followed immediately by two more home games against Georgia and Arizona State.

The video has some solid drill work from the spread, and screen drills from their first week of spring ball. Plus, within the first 10 seconds there's a coach utilizing an iPad during practice.
