Today, Oklahoma State released this video talking about the impact that training table has had on their program.
As strength and conditioning coach Rob Glass explains, "I truly believe that training table has been one of the key factors over the past seven or eight years with the program."
"It was kind of a missing link. Kids can train hard and we can put them through a tremendous training program, but the type of calories that they take in and the level at which they do that is critical to their success."
"When I try to manage the team we don't get enough work done"
After their loss to 50-13 loss to Stanford, despite outgaining the Cardinal offensively (385-373), Duke head coach David Cutcliffe noted an issue that they had that traced back to camp, where they had to figure out how to manage a productive practice while missing 12 scholarship players.
Cutcliffe told SiriusXM's College Sports Nation, "Everytime I try to get in to managing our team, we don't get enough work done."
According to Cutcliffe, despite the final stat line, they were outplayed in nearly ever aspect of the game and encountered some issues that won't be resolved easily.
"So here's what you do. I told our staff and our squad, 'We're not goig to fix this in a day, we're not going to fix it in two days, but we better not give up a day at getting better.'"
"We're not going to go out there and kill them in a scimmage, but you can do a lot of one on one, live contact drills. We did a lot of scheme drills with our offensive and defensive lines and some live work with our perimeter people."
After losing a couple guys to injuries, Cut noted that they can't afford to lose any more.
"We're just to a point where we can't afford to lose players, we're playing give up if we do that," he explained. "I'm not going to give up a day of getting better, let alone a period."

At Norm Chow's previous coaching stops, one of the traditions he has really enjoyed has been the walk to the stadium with the team, walking through a few hundred fans and players having the opportunity to see their families before kickoff.
In the video, Chow describes the logistics behind the new tradition as well as why he feels it is important to implement.
