Nice "Welcome back" video from NMSU

To welcome players to camp, the video guys at New Mexico State put together a highlight video that mixed the Aggies training in the off season to become iron men, with scenes from the movie "Ironman".

Interesting concept, and very well produced.

Saban to Julio Jones: We're going to win with or without you

When Julio Jones was coming out of high school in Alabama, he was one of the most sought after recruits in the country.

Normally to land one of the nation's highest ranked players your going to pull out all the stops. Send him 105 hand written letters in one day or fly to his game in a helicopter, or maybe address the recruit via a personal video when your out of town for a speaking engagement.

When you recruit high profile kids year after year like Nick Saban does, you have a knack for knowing how they'll respond to different tactics. Which is exactly what he did with Julio Jones, as Jones told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

"One of the reasons I liked Alabama was when I went to visit coach Saban, he said, ‘Well you know, we want you here. But we’re going to win with you or without you.’ I was like, that’s me. I just want to win. I don’t like stuff just given to me.”

Even as a highly touted recruit, Jones didn't relish the spotlight like so many receivers before him, and Saban recognized that and utilized it in his recruiting pitch.

"I really don’t care about the spotlight. That’s why going to a place like Alabama was good for me. When you put your pads on, you wouldn’t know who’s a walk-on and who’s a scholarship player.”

Herman: "Marotti is the best strength coach in America"

When Urban Meyer was hired down in Columbus, one of his first personnel moves was to bring on Mickey Marotti as the director of strength and conditioning.

After giving Marotti a full summer to work with the players, offensive coordinator Tom Herman has noticed a huge difference in the players size, speed, strength, and discipline and had plenty of praise for Marotti after yesterday's practice.

Relentless: Season 2

Last year Ohio University had a production crew create what wound up being an award winning series that followed the team's progress throughout the season. This is sideline, locker room, weight room, coaches' offices type stuff that most people never get to see (and that we all enjoy watching). 

The series "Relentless" turned out to be a huge success with their fanbase and with football fans across the country. 

Thankfully, their at it again, and tonight released episode 1 of season 2. This is movie quality stuff that you really have to see. Very well produced. Great investment by the university. 

Memphis' season hype video is good

Memphis' season hype video that they used at the Highland Hundred kickoff banquet was a good one.

Justin Fuente challenged fans in attendance to bring at least one friend to the home opener, saying "Maybe they used to be a fan and they haven't been recently. Maybe they have never been a fan. Maybe they went to another school, I don't care. If they live around here and they are friends with you, then they need to be friends with me."
