Florida State's staff talk about why they coach
Jimbo Fisher, associate head coach Eddie Gran, defensive coordinator Mark Stoops and offensive coordinator James Coley shared some thoughts on why they coach in this clip.
"Every young man that I coach get's the ultimate experience, because I think this is the greatest time of their life. And that they experience excellence and get a sense of what being successful is and what it takes to be successful, and that every one of them achieve it." Fisher explains.
Fisher points out that they'll have 12-14 guys on the roster this fall that have already earned their degree and another 10 that will graduate a semester early. Pretty impressive.
Really well produced HS video
Justin Price took over as the head coach at Campbell County (TN) just over 13 months ago, and brought in a staff that has made an immediate impact. Players have noticed an upgrade on everything from schemes and conditioning to their equipment and logo.
The coaching staff and players are clearly excited and motivated for the upcoming season, and everyone is definitely on the same page.
Very well done high school video here.
Hawaii gets a military style wake up
Hawaii got an interesting wake up call their first night at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor - Hickam. Norm Chow and the Warriors spent five days of fall camp at the base.
As you can see, they were very well versed in military workouts by the time they left the base on the 17th. The team also got to tour the USS Arizona memorial and got a first hand history lesson on the role that Pearl Harbor played in World War II.
Coach Chow explains the advantages of training at the base at about the 11:30 mark, and the video wraps up with players doing the ritual "haka" dance.
Another well done video from Colorado
The video guys at Colorado have released another solid highlight of fall camp.
Not a word is spoken during the clip, which shows how well the video was produced.

Monken: No momentum changes make scrimmages hard
After yesterday's scrimmage, Todd Monken pointed out a few areas where they weren't as sharp as he had hoped.
But to keep it all in perspective, Monken referred back to their first two scores last year against Kansas State.
"Two of our first four scores against Kansas State started on the three and the five. Uou don't get that in the scrimmage. You don't get momentum changers that you get in the flow of a game that a defense provides for you, so that makes it hard."
Indianapolis taking on Pittsburgh tonight.

Bob DeBesse mic'd up at New Mexico
Another good mic'd up session from New Mexico this time with offensive coordinator Bob DeBesse, who joined Bob Davie's staff from Sam Houston State. The Bearkats made it to the national championship game last season before falling to North Dakota State 17-6.
Plenty of quality instruction in this one with everyone ranging from the quarterbacks to the running backs and receivers.
