New Mexico coaches talk about returning

Lobos offensive line coach Jason Lenzmeier and running backs coach DeAndre Smith each spent time as Lobo assistants in the past, and couldn't be happier or more excited to be back on campus.

Lenzmeier, who worked as a graduate assistant and eventually earned a full time spot after finishing up his playing career as a Lobo, told the local media "I was never not a Lobo". After spending the past three seasons at in state rival New Mexico State Lenzmeier explained, "Obviously the profession takes you places that you have to go along your career path, but I have always been a Lobo."

Lenzmeier said he had a lot of former players and others involved in the football program throw his name in the mix when Davie got the job, and that eventually led to his interview.

Smith says he is probably more excited about being back around the program now than his first time on staff in 2008 because of the growing support from campus and surrounding community. Lenzmeier threw Smith's name at Coach Davie and a day or two later Davie was in San Francisco (where Illinois was playing in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl) sitting down with Smith and his family talking about the job.

"I have been fortunate to work for a lot of great coaches in college football, and he's another one of those guys" Smith said about the opportunity to work under Coach Davie.

Kliff Kingsbury mic'd up

Kevin Sumlin, Kliff Kingsbury and crew have finally taken the field in Spring and now they get to really see what tools they have to work with.

This one is going viral on the iternet as we speak.

Push-Pull drill at West Virginia

Good (unedited) practice footage of Mountaineers new defensive line coach Erik Slaughter working his guys.

Slaughter is running the push-pull drill here teaching the defensive linemen to use great leverage, and fight through the head of the defender to the ball carrier.

Video: Sal Sunseri on using NFL film / ideas

New Tennessee defensive coordinator Sal Sunseri is focused on finding ways to make the Tennessee defense better this off season.

One of the ways that Sunseri is getting that message across is taking a look at the best defensive teams in the NFL by category. The best red zone defenses, first and ten defenses, bump and run defenses...those are all cut ups that Sunseri plans to watch with the defense as a whole and then each unit will also watch clips of the best at each position. For example, the defensive line will watch clips of guys who lead the NFL in sacks..etc.

Sunseri says the best part about contributing in Tennessee's new look defense is that all 32 NFL teams will be able to evaluate you because of their multiplicity in scheme.

Some good life lessons open up this clip with Sunseri talking about the importance of education before football, which he witnessed himself as a player.

50 labrum tears?


This morning we saw an interesting tweet from Dave Matter who covers Mizzou football for the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Matter's tweet was related to Mizzou QB James Franklin who is currently recovering from shoulder surgery to fix a torn labrum. The part that resonated with us was the fact that Matter said that the Mizzou team trainer told him that this was about the 50th torn labrum that the team has treated over the last 6 years.  

You can read the full article here in which the trainer goes into further detail. 

We're no medical experts; but 8 a year seems awfully high, doesn't it? Use the comments below, or email us or let us know on twitter your thoughts.

Dungy addresses the Gophers

Jerry Kill had Tony Dungy come in and address the Gophers yesterday, and it's definitely worth taking some time to listen to.

Dungy explains the origins of the "Uncommon" themed video that we showed you the other day. Interestingly, the roots trace back to when Dungy was a player at Minnesota and the message was delivered from his head coach, Cal Stoll.

As Coach Dungy explains, there are two ways that you can be uncommon. You can have a skill that no one else has, or you can have the desire to do the things that everyone else could do, but most people won't. Dungy says that last part really stuck with him.

There's some great material in here you've got to hear for yourself. Great job by Coach Kill and the staff reaching out to connect with the history of the program.

Mic'd up at Cinci

Cincinnati running backs coach Roy Manning got mic'd up for practice recently, and the video guys mixed it up with commentary from offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian, and some insight from the players on what Coach Manning brings to the table.

The first drill, Manning has some fun poking at the running backs during a drill, giving them "the business" and later on he throws on a hand shield to deliver some blows.

There aren't many running backs groups that have the opportunity to go head to head with a former NFL defensive player during drills like the guys at Cinci do. Expect it to pay dividends in 2012.
