"New environment. Same details. Tradition prevails." - Andy Buh
When Andy Buh joined the Wisconsin staff as the linebackers coach back in January, he took over a unit that returned members of the all Big Ten team.
With a lot of new faces joining the Badgers, the theme for the off season had been "transition". As Buh explains in the team meeting room, the message to the team for the summer was "New environment. Same detail. Tradition prevails."
Solid t-shirt material.
Hear Buh break down the meaning of that message, piece by piece, in the clip.

It's easy to see why this is one of the better coaching tools available to bigger schools. all of us. Check out "Go Pro" cameras. Very inexpensive.
Notre Dame uniforms explained
Jack Swarbrick sat down to explain the rationale for the recent uniform changes for the ongoing "Shamrock series."
"It's the one time a year we'll alter the uniform, and we'll do it in significant ways much like we did when we were in Washington D.C. last year." Swarbrick explained.
When asked if there was an advantage to changing the uniforms, Swarbrick said "I don't know if it's an advantage as much as it reflects a partnership with our student athletes, which is very important to me. They enjoy this. It's exciting for them, it's a fun element. They honor and recognize our traditions, but they like the opportunity to change it up once a year. So we've decided to use this series as that opportunity."
Traditionalists aren't going to like these Notre Dame uniforms
Adidas and Notre Dame rolled out these new unis today which Notre Dame will wear October 6th at Soldier Field when they take on Miami.

Good promotional video from UMass

Catchy stuff. Enjoy!
McElwain weighs in on "no punt" philosophy
With conference foe Rocky Long and San Diego State considering not punting after crossing the 50 yard line, reporters were curious to get Jim McElwain's viewpoint on the subject.
After referencing one local high school coach that shares Pulaski Academy's (AR) Kevin Kelley's philosophy, McElwain explained, "Call me old school, but I still think you win off field position."
He further noted that "Theoretically, really, when your sitting and looking at the percentages, and especially, let's say it's third and six...You can actually treat it like a run down and get in fourth and manageable."
Mic'd up at New Mexico
Receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield got mic'd up for a fall camp session the other day.
Stubblefield is all about coaching with tempo, preaching accountability and doing the little things the right way, as you'll see from how he coaches up routes, and gets on guys that aren't as dialed in as they need to be.
UNC players impersonate coaches during skit night
Larry Fedora and the staff gave the players a chance to blow off a little steam with a skit night recently.
