You can't win with the course workload here


Recommended Posts

I think it is clear we have the athletes that is not a debate. But don't our guys look smaller, weak and just not in great shape? I always thought it was a problem but when our guys are studying or doing work sec teams are in the gym or doing speed work. Top athletes come here and don't get better because they don't have the time too.

 

We will never compete with the SEC until things change or else this will never end.

They seem to at Stanford and we just lost to another good academic school. We have the facilities, we have the athletes, we have the coaches, but none of that matters when we make dumb plays on the field and on the sideline. This game was inexcusable and will be used negatively with recruits. Hell, we are doing everything possible to run off two 5 star players in Bryant and Redfield who also happen to be from two of the three best states for prospects. :(

I've been saying this. And it's not just physical, they are mentally exhausted. Harbaugh had something going with an old school formula.but.now it's falling apart. It's just too big of.a disadvantage.but hey, we don't want to cheapen anyone's degree now ;)

 

If you can't win at all costs then you can't win in College football cause as we've seen teams do win at all costs and it works. Some take it to a new level but the best example is Ohio State, we need to do what they do in a sense.

Accept these losses to happen until changes are made, what else can we do? We're only fans. It also doesn't help we are handicapped by a horrid gameday coach, you could go on about the passing, decisions, and how unprepared we were. Signs of terrible coaching.

 

This is exactly like Weis except we are going 8-4 instead of 6-6, take away 2012 and it's not pretty.

Half of alabama's roster carries ND offers.....don't gimme this going to class bull$hit

 

Yeah I said talent was not the issue, we have it. What I'm saying is these players don't have the time to workout and train, they're in class or doing homework or studying because schooling is ****ing tough there. SEC schools probably get the odd assignment and test so all time is spent getting healthy, training and probably steroids.

 

We just look small, out of shape, weak. I mean so does Northwestern, watching this SEC ball looks so much differently. There are so many things holding us back and if you can't win at all costs you will be stuck with the pinstripe and .com bowls of the world. The odd time you make a BCS game you get curb stomped.

Apparently you've never seen Trick Shot Monday.

I'm an alumn, and was an athlete, so I spent my fair share of time in the Gug. The notion that school work comes at the expense of workouts, treatments, etc. is incorrect. And I don't agree that our team looks any smaller/weaker or any other adjective in reference to a physical disadvantage. We are as physically talented as any in college football. The Florida St. game proved it, and a loss to Northwestern, a school recruiting an inferior athlete with equally demanding academics doesn't make the argument any more credible.
