That has become the standard in College Football.  It gives coaches time to evalute film and make necessary adjustments within the personnel.  Players shouldn't be expected to be in mid-season form (conditioning) during spring ball.

Our supposed starting nose guard said he need a break after 6 practices.  I am not sure this kid could have played on an teams in the 90's!  Lazy?

I'm glad that spring break came along.  I was getting a bit tuckered out myself.  You know, being a fan and all.  :lol:

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

Um. You know NCAA regulates the number of spring practices we get right? And that the Spring Game counts as one of those? And also that you know no one except for Michigan has practice over Spring Break?

In the 90s...the team would drink sand instead of water...and instead of taking a break from practice they would take a practice from a break...also...they always fought...all day long...they were always punching each other in the face.

They never missed a practice or game because of injury either.  They played through all their aches and pains.  Actually I don't ever recall an instance in the 90's where a Nebraska player was actually injured, I only recall them injuring every opponent they ever played (they of course injured these opponents because they played harder and were bigger, faster, stronger not because they were dirty)

Don't forget that the triple option was the single best offensive scheme ever created . If we ran that now we would be in the playoffs every year, just like the 90s

That's because Michigan wants it more than the rest.  :dunno

 

 

 

 

 

 

Though I'm pretty open to whatever the definition of 'it' is as 'it' relates to Michigan.  :B)

And Tom Osborne was able to get those kids to run through walls, drink sand, and never get injured by never raising his voice to those kids, but was able to be stern with just a simple look in their eyes.

I often worry that the internet makes it too easy to second-guess people who are more talented and ambitious than you are.

 

Back when Tom Osborne was the coach, you had to physically drive over to his house in Taylor Park to teepee his front yard. And if you wanted to loudly bray your ill-formed opinions, you had to corner a co-worker in the break room.

 

How soft have our armchair quarterbacks gotten lately?

 

Sad.
