I was giving some thought to our strength and conditioning situation. I know we need a coach, but I don’t think the situation is as dire as people think. We have coaches who should know what exercises and techniques are beneficial and which are not. The thing is the coaches I ‘m thinking about are not on the football staff. Track coaches, tennis coaches, even basketball coaches all have to have student athletes who are able to endure the rigors of their sport. I am not saying that football is less rigorous than those sports mentioned above, I’m saying until… Read more »

Saw a photo and video coach K posted of the workouts and they were all wearing a shirt that said earn it. So it seems as though they’re following Heltons words as he says “we compete in everything we do.” Also so a lifting video they posted so it seems that they are hungry this year they have intensity they’ve been lacking it seems like but it’s all gonna boil down to how they play on the field. The more they post and we can see them the more excited I get. Hopefully they keep this fire and intensity throughout… Read more »

Coach K seems like he will be great for us. I know Boise St boards were disappointed to see him go. Hopefully he will get that unit playing like they should. I have been impressed with Burns as well so far, put in serious work during last recruiting cycle.

Excited to see what they do in spring practice.

Yeah I think defensively this team is gonna he solid Clancy is a good coordinator and now his under staff is in place to win. Nansen has already been out recruiting for the next class and talking to the high talent locally so all around I can’t complain about them. Hopefully this next season showcases them

As long as Clancy becomes able to adjust and put more players into rotation defense could be good. If he stays with his favs only and never comes out of man coverage, we suck again.

Making in game adjustments and rotated personnel will be crucial. Also our DBs need to crowd the receivers at the line of scrimmage. Don’t give them a five yard cushion.

SteveG, I see under new assistants them having more power with the subs and working as a team. If our defensive isn’t a powerful force then someone failed somewhere. I definitely think with having a young secondary we need to stick to zone more than man because these kids will struggle until they play these players and level of competition. But I think our line and LB Corp will actually be pretty good and be able to help out these young players with pressure and not giving the QB too much time to throw. That’s what’ll hurt us overall is… Read more »
