    The ACT has an essay portion that is manually graded by two graders. Combine that with the sheer amount of kids that take it at once and it will take some time to get it done. Even if that is only a day or two for a given kid, I think they are trying to get everyone their results at the same time so they don't have to deal with a constant barrage of questions from people wondering if theirs had been done yet.

    I generally agree with you. Mostly I was confused by why you took things in the direction of how much non-athletes pay in tuition and subsequent potential student loan debt. Does that usually happen when this topic comes up?

    Sorry for putting this back on topic. I'm not cool enough to have any musical references to contribute. 3 quick thoughts. 1) The Training Table at NU is open to any student with a meal plan. Academic counseling is freely available to any student. Non-athletic scholarships actually outnumber athletic ones. The gap might not be as wide as you think. 2) "If you come to my school I will pay X monthly for your autograph". I don't see how you can let them have any similar option without opening the whole can of worms, for better or worse. The stipend was meant to address this. 3) I'm not sure if your point is that you think Universities should be compensating athletes better for their services or that Universities should be using their athletic funds to reduce tuition overall.

    You think Nebraska is the only school to slow play in state talent?
  6. How exactly does someone hang clean from the ground?

    Technique can play a huge part but ultimately it's two yards to do something as violently as possible. Sound familiar? There really isn't a weight room number that involves maximum effort while traveling. The shot put does that nicely. That's why I am a fan.

    With our current depth you are probably right. Would not surprise me in the least if his name would come up often in the "who has impressed you on the scout team" conversations if he did redshirt. Really hope he comes here.

    Yes! I have not seen any better indicator of short area burst than the shot. Kind of like lineman that are stud wrestlers or WR that are 200m studs any DE or LB the throws 60+ is just someone you have to get for pure athleticism. Otito and Cam absolutely check that box for me. It was a shame Cam's technique hasn't improved all that much since then. With his leg injury I doubt we will really get to see if this season would have been much better.

    I don't care how big he is. That level of athleticism is something very few people have. Even among D1 athletes. He would test off the charts and likely immediately contribute.

    Puts less stress on shoulders and elbows which are common football injuries. Also helps with your posture so you can be more upright. Some lifters really struggle with keeping good posture and having your hands on the handles in front of you allow you to keep your head and chest up. It is a safer lift for athletes to still get the benefits of traditional rear squat.So does he need to have a lower hold on the squat rack? Otherwise isn't he doing as much as he can?He could grab lower on the rack with his hands. They have handles to put in the rack that you can grab onto them and not hold the rack, but he is just grabbing the rack. Maliek Collins had a video of him doing 785 pounds as a reference, but Maliek went a little deeper in the squat. And In the end...he is lifting for football...not a power lifting competition. Proper technique applies to anybody who is lifting, not just power lifting. Sure, if you are thinking about avoiding injury. I think teach was referencing that the "proper" technique can vary by the desired result. e.g. Dropping full-squat to catch a clean is "proper" but not nearly as useful to a football player as generating enough force to catch it near vertical.

    Are they doing squats differently now? Why is he pulling himself up with his hands. Different kind of bar. Lowers center of gravity but pitches you forward a bit. Hands are more for vertical stability than helping you lift. Safety squat bar also helps you lift quite a bit more. Feels like more of a pulling motion than pushing.

    How far was that field goal at the end? Looked like 55,60,then 58 with a high school ball.
