Can you imagine the repercussions of a current NCAA head coach doing so? It is our belief that the compliance officer in charge of reviewing twitter would have either had a coronary on the spot or simply would have left the building.
Has your selection of weapons improved?

"As they get older and you coach them, they should continue to get better and if they don't they either don't care, don't want to be coached or have a drug or alcohol problem."
That was Oklahoma State's offensive coordinator Todd Monken's response when asked about his "selection of weapons being even greater this Fall than this past Spring".
Monken went on to say that he's not sure he has more weapons; but that they are playing better, "as they should".
We're pretty sure OSU is not lacking for offensive weapons. Perhaps the scarier thing for opponents is that defensive coordinator Bill Young says his defensive backs look much impoved this Fall.
Saban makes a decision about scrimmage statistics

Nick Saban is not, REPEATING, is not going to allow the media to create a perception of his top two quarterbacks. A’ight?
Saban has yet to decide on a starter between AJ McCarron and Phillip Sims.
In order to keep the opinions and perceptions to an absolute minimum, Saban refused to allow scrimmage quarterback statistics available to the media.
Saban said, “I wasn't even gonna give them to you so you didn't have to worry about it. Would you all be happy with that? Because sometimes the guys playing against the two's is a little bit different when playing against the one's and vice versa for everybody out there.”
"So how a guy does relative to his leadership, his command, the opportunities that he had, what receivers he had in there, who he was playing against ... there's so many factors and variables."
Today, Wilson shared great enthusiasm about the Hoosiers defense. He admitted that there isn’t one group that is overwhelming great, but the progress has been outstanding.
Wilson said, “I don’t know if anybody is ahead, but the defense is doing really good. I do think the defense, when you go everyday against the same look, you should really hone in and start to do well.”
“If you’re going to be really good defense, you need to see that. I had a couple of really nice groups at Oklahoma that every time we went and scrimmaged, we (offense) wouldn’t score. And then we would start playing and we would play really good, so I think it’s really good to them playing well.”
“They need to do better. We’re not where we need to be. And I don’t know really where they were, but they’re making progress. And I like a lot of things from the second group. I think we’re seeing some depth, seeing some guys playing faster because we’re in shape. I think they’re understanding. I think they’re gaining confidence, but I think it can be so much better, too.”
“Are we world beaters? I don’t know, but I love our coaches and the kids do. And they’re working together. If you’re a really good defense, you’re a really good defense at the end of the year because they do it every week.”
Take a look at the Hoosiers mix it up in 3 on 3 Oklahoma drill.
