How to "Haka"

Arizona defensive lineman Sione Tuihalamaka and his "Polyzona" teammates would like to show us all how to Haka. 

Good lesson. Thanks. 

'Zona staff, please get Rich Rod to do this at least once this season. 

See practice through the eyes of QB

Some good GoPro helmet cam footage here from Northern Illinois and quarterback Jordan Lynch.

Observe exactly how Lynch sees things and how the team works through their last two a day practice before they shift their focus to Iowa, who they'll take on Saturday at 3:30.

Leach: Coaches practice just like players

Mike Leach was asked if he was excited to be back on the sideline for the first time since 2009 after practice last night.

Leach responded by saying, "I've been practicing it everyday for over a month."

"It's really not that new. It's just like players practice, coaches practice. So it's not like any of it is new. I've just got to do the same thing in the game that I did in practice, just like they do."

Impressive video from Azusa Pacific

Really well put together video here from Azusa Pacific, who is making the move to D-II. The video highlights head Victor Santa Cruz and how the Cougar program is winning games and changing lives.

This is one of those videos that helps remind us of the big picture and why we do what we do as coaches. 

"God gave us just one life. We are not going to waste it on mediocrity. We are going to run to be the best." Santa Cruz notes during the clip.

"We have to master the things that require no talent"

On the field at Camp Randall, in front of 80,000 fans among the loudest in the country, communication's importance can't be stressed enough.

Co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash pointed out communication's importance, using their loss against Ohio State, where a breakdown in communication in the secondary allowed Ohio State to go ahead with under 30 seconds left on the clock. 

“Communication doesn’t require talent. That’s the No. 1 thing we’ve got to master, the things that require no talent. That’s one of them.” 

However, it's not easy. Processing the personnel, formation, defensive call and down and distance while under the gun on game day takes plenty of repetition, Ash notes.

“You have to process it first before you can communicate it. The great ones, they can process it faster.”

“Out here, it’s easy. On game day in the environment of Camp Randall Stadium, it’s a whole ’nother thing. We try to stress it, but you never know until you get to gameday.”
