Malzahn on tempo: "We weren't even close"

Gus Malzahn sat down with the media to talk about the Red Wolves spring practice yesterday.

Pease shares 5 pillars of his offensive philosophy

New Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease addressed his five pillars of offensive philosophy at a recent press conference.

Pease says that a physical downhill running attack is his first and foremost, and that really compliments the next four pillars.

This is why TX high school football is king

The guys down at Guyer high school in Denton, Texas have got something special going on.

As you can see from the video below, they have some guys putting up some big time weight, and the overwhelming majority of them are getting it done with great form.

Niumatalolo setting the tone early

Navy struggled to a 5-7 record last season (with five of their losses coming by a combined 11 points), and Ken Niumatalolo is wasting no time setting the tone for 2012 in spring ball.

Instead of easing into things, Coach Niumatalolo is starting spring ball in full pads and full contact for everyone.

“I’m taking a big risk and making our quarterbacks live this spring, but we need some work,” he said. “Not only him, but the guys tackling him need some work. Our team needs some work.”

Niumatalolo also added that they'll likely put the ball in the air a little more next season, more along the lines with what they did in the 2010 season when they averaged almost 12 passes per game (this past season they averaged 9 per game).

 

 

Urban's incentive system mirrors the real world

It seems like most staffs we talk to have some type of incentive based system in the off season to motivate players. Whether it's jersey colors, or the difference between steak dinners and franks-and-beans, each staff has their own system.

For Urban Meyer at Ohio State, he feels that the incentive system is the most realistic for players once they get out in the real world. 

"When you get away from Mommy and Daddy, it's a tough world out there, people who work in corporations who do a really good job have corner offices and trips to Cancun and bonuses. And if not, you don't. So I think a lot of kids aren't taught that. So everything we try to do is incentive-based." Meyer explained.
