"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
275-0 scoring margin
Dana X Bible's National Championship team
Are you sure the freshmen didnt say " what- Sally didnt make any cookies this time? ". Sorry couldn't resist. Me bad....
"Look for Mack to use this locker room incident to deflect blame against the player instead of acknowledging that this is just a manifestation of morale issues, all caused by pathetic, tired and ineffective leadership from the head coach. "
Well we fans cannot let these shenanigans to be continued to be used by the Emporer who wears no clothes!
And each of you that states that Harsin is not getting it done I'm telling you it's the handcuffs Mack is placing on him to protect Manny!

"I don't hate you, I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence."
Coaching staffs aren't allowed to force workouts during the summer. So, it kind of is up to the players to keep it organized.
That may be the case, however if I was the coach I'd know who did or didn't show and those that decided to skip would pay a price at practices to a point where they would think twice about doing it again. Don't tell me that doesn't go on elsewhere.
I hope we see the end of the mack brown era and the country club attitudes,had all I can stand to watch.
I looked up naive in the dictionary, it said "see groly". I was confused until I saw this post.
He's right. Did you look up NCAA violation?
You can't drink a fine wine twice, but quoting this comes pretty close.
Yes, no programs in the NCAA keep tabs on what players do during the summer. Nor do they have a dedicated team of highly trained strength and conditioning coaches to oversee what players do over the summer. Certainly these coaches don't suggest or, indeed, explicitly state that dedication to off-season workouts will impact in-season playing time and performance. I bow to the wisdom of your literal, letter-of-the-law worldview.
Of course some programs break the rules. Some programs also pay players, get them fake jobs, pay high school coaches to push kids their way, contact recruits during the dead period and plenty more. Are you suggesting Texas does that too?
Do you think it's just a coincidence when we have strong leaders on the team, our offseason workouts are more organized and productive?
Great coaches "force" it simply by making it known and understood that anything less will not be tolerated and an atmosphere of competition for positions is fostered.
Now that we know what they'll fight for, someone should tell them before the games, they'll only get Sally's cookies IF they win.
No. Do you think it's coincidence that teams with coaches who demand accountability are consistently good rather than mediocre with flashes of greatness when generational players fall from the sky to grace the program for a few years?
Of course not. That's not what you were saying before. Demanding accountability and breaking the rules are two different things.
where did I ever say break the rules? Just because you are incapable of reading doesn't mean I'm changing what I said.
In response to groly's post that coaches aren't allowed to force offseason workouts, you said:
"I looked up naive in the dictionary, it said "see groly". I was confused until I saw this post."
What were you suggesting he was naive about then? I'm excited to hear your answer. People will go to lengths of absurdity to defend a failing point before admitting they were wrong.

I'm just stating the rule smart ass. For the many things you can fault Mack for, its unnecessary and unfair to fault him for compliance.
Not failing. If you don't think coaches know who is attending workouts then you're a willful fool. And if Mack doesn't know who is attending workouts then he is the fool. I don't think it is a violation to base personnel decisions on level of dedication to improvement.
