No two-a-days? No big deal

Well, we’ve come to the end of our first week back and what  a week it has been. As we normally do here at Mr. CFB we’ll celebrate Friday by throwing open the discussion for any topic. It can be college football, politics, music or anything your little heart desires. But, as always, please keep it clean.

Let me get the party started. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

1.  Kudos to Georgia  for kicking two-a-days to the curb. College football coaches are, with very few exceptions, traditionalists. They have always believed that two-a-days in August is where you toughen your team up and get them ready for the season. The fact is that in the modern day weight training programs, it is the offseason where you actually start building your team and instilling mental toughness. Since the NCAA limits teams to 29 practices in preseason, it makes more sense to limit practices to one a day and spend the time in between studying film and learning.

A head coach in this league once told me that the challenge today is learning work smarter and to make more efficient use of your time rather than trying to impress people with how many hours you work. This seems to be a step in the right direction.

2. Christian Ponder says FSU can win ACC championship: I spoke to Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder, who was playing as well as any quarterback in the country last season when he tried to tackle a Clemson defender who had intercepted one of his passes in the ninth game. Ponder put his shoulder into De’Andre McDaniel and Ponder’s shoulder lost. He was out for the season. “One of the dumber moves I’ve made in my life. Not smart at all,” he said. Ponder will represent Florida State at the ACC preseason meetings in Greensboro on July 25-26. One of the things he plans to tell the media in that session is that he believes the Seminoles, in their first year under new head coach Jimbo Fisher (who replaced Bobby Bowden), are good enough to win the ACC championship. “Anything less than an ACC championship and we will be disappointed,” he said.

3. Tubs gets hammered for telling the truth: Tommy Tuberville, the new head coach at Texas Tech, was reprimanded by the Big 12 for saying publicly that the income disparity among the league’s members will certainly impact how long the league will stay together. If you talk to anybody in that conference whose name is not Texas, Oklahoma or Texas A&M they will agree with that statement. Those three teams got a sweetheart deal to keep the league together and will make significantly more from TV than the other seven. After 14 years of being a head coach in the SEC, where the revenue is basically shared equally, Tuberville’s words should have some credibility. Most people can handle the truth. Tuberville, for example, told the Texas Tech people that if they hired him he was going to run the ball, play defense and field more of a balanced offense. They hired him anyway.

4. Tough week for North Carolina: The Tar Heels of Butch Davis come to Atlanta on Sept. 4 to open the season against LSU in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff. But a summer of optimism has taken a troubling turn. Word leaked yesterday that the NCAA is looking into possible involvement with agents by North Carolina players. I talked to some people last night who were familiar with the situation and they confirmed that the issue, for now, is indeed agent related. Understand that rising seniors can have contact with agents but they cannot accept gifts or other compensation, a la Reggie Bush.

This comes less than a week after linebacker Quan Sturdivant, one of several potential NFL Draft choices on the Tar Heel defense, was cited for marijuana possession.

Understand that North Carolina takes a lot of pride in its reputation of doing things the right way. The idea of being under NCAA investigation will not sit well with a lot of the alumni base.

I wonder where this story will be on Sept. 4?

 

5.  Countdown to Kickoff is Saturday: For several years now former Georgia players David Greene, Matt Stinchcomb, and Jon Stinchcomb have hosted a ”Countdown to Kickoff” fan day where fans can come out and meet them and host of other former Georgia players. It is fun day for the kids and the proceeds go to a number of children’s charities. Tickets are $25 and a Family Pack of four tickets is $75. It will be held at the Woodruff Practice fields in Athens off of Lumpkin Street starting at 3 p.m. on Saturday. For more details, check out their website:

www.ugakickoff.com

Personal note: The formal enshrinement for the 2009 class into the College Hall of Fame will take place on Saturday in South Bend, Ind. One of the honors that is also handed out at that banquet is the Bert McGrane Award, which represents the Football Writers Association of America Hall of Fame. This year’s winner is the late Tom Mickle, who had an incredible career as a sports information director (Duke), associate conference commissioner (ACC), and bowl executive in Orlando. Tom was also a dear friend. We lost him in April of 2006 at the age of 55. Accepting the award on Tom’s behalf will be his wife, Jill, and Tom’s two children, Holland and Matthew. It will be tough moment for them so please keep them in your prayers.

Were you people aware that the Orlando Sentinel ranked the Bulldogs a whopping 64th! Don’t worry though because they ranked Northern Illinois 15 spots better and UCF 20 spots better. With that said, I agree – what is the point of two a days when a 500 season is inevitable with or without 2 a days.

1. I don’t care if they practice twice a day or once a day. They get 29 practices to use however they want and I’ll leave it up to the coaches to determine the best ways to use them.

2. I think their division is again the weaker of the two in the ACC and depending on what Parker decides at Clemson it could get even weaker. If they win their division and make it to the ACCCG then anything is possible. Ponder should also have a great year and if things go well could be sitting at the NYC Athletic Club later in the year.

3. Tubberville should be applauded for being honest. The Big XII-II is on life support and in the next round of conference expansion it probably will fall apart.

4. Nice to see UNC is finally trying to compete at the level of an elite football program. The NCAA investigation is a badge of honor (sarcasm).

The Sentinel ranking GA 64 was nothing more than what is commonly known as ‘kicking the ant hill’. Lazy ‘journalism’.

Tony, I was surprised you didn’t mention anything about Bobby Johnson. I’m guessing you’re waiting for the formal announcement and possibly additional information. If I had been the AD at UT, I would have thought he or Butch Davis might have been a good fit. He did an incredible job at an impossible place.

1. I’m with Tony. 2-a-days are archaic, and he’s right; off-season training plus improvements in S&C relegates the 2-a-days to being superfluous.

2. Ponder’s good, but a shot at the ACC title IMO doesn’t rest with him – it rests with the Nole defense.

3. I too applaud Tuberville. The Big X stinks, and won’t last much longer now that Texas is back to raping the other conference members for its own benefit. IMO Texas was the key to the SWC downfall and almost cost the Big X its existence. Texas is a cancer to any conference it belongs to. This is why Tom Osborne hated the idea of expanding the Big 8 to include the SWC orphans; I think he knew Texas was bad news and he was proven right.

4. Football programs absolutely MUST take stronger steps in corralling unethical contact from agents. It’s clearly difficult to control but something must be done.

5. okay…

No 2-a-days is just another way that Richt will show that his laid back forward thinking approach to football does not work. There is a reason that UGA repeatedly loses games due to turnovers, penalties, and other mental mistakes…a lack of toughness and it starts at the top…ask Coach Saban and Coach Meyer their opinions of 2-a-days and I think you will get a much different view…and their teams perform especially in the 4th qtr.

Like another blogger stated:
Does that mean no more “2 arrests per day?”

2. Ponder & FSU
Prepared to be disappointed Christian.
FSU may win their division, but wont win the ACC.

3. Poor Tubs. WAAAAYYYY in over his head at TxTech.
I think Tubs is gonna find out that Texas & Oklahoma RUN the Big12(10).

It took Mike Leach several years with a highly innovative offense, and players left over from the talent pool AFTER Tx, OK, and aTm all had 1st, 2nd, and 3rd picks to even be competitive in the Big12.

Tubs has his work cut out for him.
I’ll be surprised if he’s sill there in 5 years.

4. Butch Davis. The shadow of Miami still looms over his shoulder.
However, Mark it Down: UNC WILL BEAT LSU.
LSU losing to UNC will all but seal Les Miles fate.

And, the final act of BS from Tony:

Tony makes the effort to make a “personal note” about a journalist friend being inducted to the College Football Hall of Fame.

Yet, Toccoa, Ga’s own All-American Pat Swilling, who played 16 years in the NFL, is ALSO being inducted by the College Football Hall of Fame, and Tony doesnt even bother to mention it.

Maybe its because there are no SEC players being enshrined this year.

Does anyone actually believe that in the fourth quarter of a game, the fact that UGA did not practise twice in one day twice in 27 days, weeks before that game, is going to “show up”?

Forget the winter conditioning, forget the summer workouts, (year round really) forget the fact that they DID practise just as many times for just as many hours and potetially prepared better because they got 3 extra days of instruction in, forget that they have played several games already at that point…or that they might actually have less injuries, the 4th quarter of a game half way through the season is going to “show” how the couple of 2-a-days was the big factor?

Old Dawg

July 16th, 2010
12:49 pm

Like said in my post yesterday, with a new defensive system it makes sense to have more film and walk through sessions. The off-season conditioning program is the catalyst for success, not sweltering in the heat. Part of that conditioning is running during the summer while working with the staff that is allowed to have contact with the players.

And don’t forget that part of those 29 practice sessions will include a lot conditioning. From everything I’m hearing, the UGA coaching staff has a new intensity from recent years of struggle.

Also remember, that if a coach implemented the Texas A&M death march mentality he’d end up in jail … players and their families simply won’t put up with that style of coaching anymore. Just remember what happened with Frank Kush at Arizona State back in the 70s.

1)Can’t understand why the big 12 fined Tubbs for speaking a simple truth that should be obvious to a 5th grader- that the new deal where Tex., Tam, and OU get more money than the remaining big 12 teams is going to create a lot of ill will.

2)Good move by Richt. Once a day gives players more time to learn and absorb what they did that day and gives the coaches extra time to review tape of the practice sessions and track day to day progress. Makes you wonder why nobody has thought of this before.

3) Looking at the Orlando Sentinel poll I’m thinking someone was smoking something when they put this together.

Let me get this straight They have Troy, Northern Illinois, the Ohio bobcats, Southern Miss, and Notre Dame ranked ahead of Georgia, BYU, Clemson, Ole Miss, Kentucky- bcs conference teams that have all regularly gone bowling the last few years. I wouldn’t even rank these teams above some of the bcs conference programs that may be expected to be down in their leagues in 2010 such as Miss. State, Tenn., Michigan, etc. And these guys have Wake Forest ranked 92nd. Exactly what does Wake have to do to prove they are a pretty decent program? Sheeesh!

I thought UGA went away from two a days because they could not keep their players sober long enough for two practices. Let’s hope Coach Richt schedules the remaining practice in early afternoon, leaving plenty of time for players to get their drink on and they ample time to dry out the next morning. I have always admired coaches that adapt their coaching styles to the players on hand.

I think a lot of you are underestimating the value of two-a-days. It’s five days of mental and physical toughness, the same kind you need when you are down six points in the fourth quarter with 1:41 left and the ball on your own 20. Sure it would be fun to jump of the high dive and go bowling instead but those things don’t get you ready to play football.

I understand there is an inherent danger in having two workouts a day in 100 degree heat but we are talking about top-tier athletes. Not some schlubs that have sat on the couch the past 15 years and are 60 pounds overweight.

There is also a lot of comraderie built when you go through two-a-days. Especially for the new players. The military does it and so do top-notch football programs. Including the NFL.

2. Why are there so many gaters, bees, and vols on here, don’t you have your own places to post your dribble?
3. Agree with Jesse James, put an end to HS Spring football practice, a ritual that baseballers, soccer players & lacrosse players can’t participate in. End Spring Practice and give HS more official time in the preseason.
4. Northeast GA version of Ludiwicci (sloyourassdown) is Arcade or anywhere along 316.

HILARIOUS……… Gator fans are such a trip, they talk out their backsides and havent the foggiest notion of what the heck is going on.

Obvious good call on 2 a days – less injuries and it allows younger players that will get PT time to get caught up on techniques and game situations so they can be as fluid as possible straight out the gate!

Back to the misinformed, narrowminded Gator fans.
If UGA is going to be so so so bad this year with 10 starters coming back on Offense and a new attacking style defense that the early games wont have film for, Along with the best K and P combo in the nation. (Let me remind you that we finally have the favorable schedule that UF has had the previous 4 years)
Who do you really think has enough to keep UGA from walking into Jax with a 0 in the loss category; which when this occurs will be your worst nightmare coming true considering you very well could have 2 losses.
It’s ok keep running your mouths about your beloved Orlando Sentinel which you dont even read daily and doesnt amount to crap. NEWS FLASH your days are numbered, enjoy it while you can!

He and his staff are the weakest staff in terms of game situation coaching the I have ever witnessed. Look at the losses to Vandy, Kentucky, pathetic Tenn teams and others.

Crazy rules allowing the coaches so little time to prepare for the season. Hard to bring a newbie along so quickly. Two a days were one serious smash mouth session and the other was shorts, tee shirt, and helmet. Did a lot of team bonding in the afternoon session and the coaches made the last 30 minutes fun. They’d have pick to guys one from the offense and one from the defense kicking a short field goal w/ the looser ‘team” having to run. The one team was made up of the QB, the wr’s, safety’s, cb’s, lb,s and rb’s. The other team were the linemen…then the OC would hold for the linemen etc. and the DC would hold for the back’s etc. The OC was a choir boy, but the DC was a mean S.O.B. who cheated. It was like Lucy and Charlie Brown. the backs never one. Another thing was to lay down in a circle around the field and having to high step over the other players. Those dang linemen could barely lift their legs and they’d be stepping all over us, naturally the backs, wr’s always had to go first and you really didn’t want to have a big ol’ lineman looking to get you back. Wheel barrow races back and across the field was another way to end the day. Heck I think I enjoyed the second part of the day better than the first. :) lik I said, it was great for team bonding if nothing else.

Richt has a lot of good will built up. He’s not going anywhwere unless the dawgs have a disaster of a season like 7-6 and I don’t see that happening.

I read the Paul Finebaum article and from what I read on these blogs it sounded like Slimebaum just blasted Richt for the helluvit. It was actually not as slanted as I thought it would be.

The main point of his article was that a new AD tends to want to make his own stamp and make his own changes. There is a lot of truth to that. Call it ego. Call it whatever but it does seem like there would be a natural inclination for a new AD to look to make a change and bring in his guy. But only after a year at least so Richt’s job is safe in the mean time amidst a lot of conjecture. He’s just got to start beating Florida some of the time and at the minimum his team’s have to compete in that game. Continued 41-17 and 49-10 humiliations will doom him. It only took Tubberville one blowout 36-0 to us after beating us 6 in a row to get the hook. Don’t think it’ll happen to Richt but in this year’s UF game the dawgs dang sure better keep it close for Richt’s sake if they don’t win.

Skull practice made me sleepy. We usually held it on afternoons of two-a-days when we’d skip dressing out for the second time on those particular days once or twice a week. Of course, we didn’t have Red Bull available to us either. I think one-a-days can accomplish the drills, walk throughs, run throughs, blessing outs, dog fights, etc but it’s gonna be up to the players to bring themselves ready to go physically from day one. Of course, this isn’t high school and they should be at least 85% minimum ready on day one of summer practice…All in all, one-a-days probably will be more intensive and take up the same or similar hours as two-a-days would…JMHO

Do you really think two-a-days will make any difference by the time UGA plays Florida? Any conditioning that is gained from two a days will be gone by then. Not to mention UGA is still going to work out and condition during their one-a-days. BTW, tech’s first three practices can’t be two-a-days if they want to stay in good graces with NCAA. Last time I checked, if you do two-a-days you must split them up with a one-a-day imbetween.

given the kinds of injuries we’ve absorbed in camp the last 2-3 years, i think it’s a good idea to rethink what we’re doing in the offseason. i’m not saying that two-a-days caused all our injuries (there were other factors), but it may have contributed to the situation. at any rate i give CMR a lot of credit for being willing to make a change like this: i submit 1 practice a day is going to help our kids absorb the new defensive scheme, help our freshman qb develop, and maybe even keep us healthier over the course of the season. the offseason training program is so grueling now that i don’t think the ‘toughness’ argument holds. conditioning and athleticism hasn’t been our problem the last couple of years; discipline and playing assignment football has.

some dawg fans are impossible to please. when CMR makes a change, we complain. when he doesn’t make a change, we complain. let’s just see how it turns out. can’t wait to G-A-T-A in 2010! go dawgs!

Tony, glad to see you back. The AJC reporting without you is more like TMZ or the National Enquirer. They seem to spend more resources following the personal lives of coaches, players and administrators than they do what actually happens on the field. Sad, but it is true.

“What a joke most of you GA fans are as you have not won a NC in 30 YEARS and yet still wanna run your traps like GA is an elite program.”

How exactly does a team “win” a mythical title? We were 13-1 in ‘02 and 12-0 in ‘80 – your team ever do better than that? If so, state your team and what year they did better, Call It. Also, if your team is in the SEC, how many SEC titles (real championships won on the field) does it have? Georgia has 12.

Here is how the blogs around here work: (1) AJC posts something about the personal life of an 18 year old kid or someone who is on salary for a university. (2) They might post it as a head-line if it involves more than one beer and a policeman. (3) The floodgates open and about 50 men start taking personal shots at each other’s schools, regardless of what the original story was. “You guys stink. Your academics stink. Your coeds are ugly. You are gay. Your football conference stinks. Blah, blah, blah.” (4) Of the same 50 guys, 10 of them start reposting under different names, normally to compliment themselves. (GTFan: Man, the Jackets are great. BuzzBrain, who is really GTFan: Man, GTFan, you are so right and also very good looking.) (5) Maybe, just maybe, 51 people bother to read all the post, but that includes the 50 guys who originally posted.

Meanwhile, the season is one day closer. Come quickly, Sept. 1.

Ed, you sir are a moron if you can’t tell that I like Florida and I do not use (WE) since I’m not on the team so learn something, drop the we when you refer to the team that you like.

Second, GA is not an elite program like Florida. Most had your beloved dawgs running the table back in 2007 but like usual they choked!

You have one NC that was in 1980. The other so called ones are not creditable since this was before the BCS and when NC was in the spotlight.

The way I see it is Gators have 3 and GA has 1 and has not been to the dance since1980. Therefore, until they actually win a few more, there is nothing that you can spew that will matter.

Gators win the East again in 2010 and bank on another beat-down in Jax.
