    AJC Geoff Collins interview, somewhat a preview of season 4

    Suguira did a pretty good job in this writeup. He asked some exact questions. He also gave some background on last season that I hadn't seen until now. It may be the first time I can recall Suguira writing about Collins stopping practices last year because of focus issues on the field (I guess...

    Chip Long Offense Video (Tulane)

    The video is just 18 minutes long. It's worth a watch. While I love a fan breakdown, there are a bunch of places where I said "nah, that's not quite right", so watch with your own eyes and figure out what makes sense. With the debate about starters going on in another thread, I wanted to see...

    The role of strength & conditioning in a program

    In this article, CBS discusses a strength coach for Oregon who probably should never have been hired, and gets into other general issues with S&C in the NCAA. There’s a good overview of the profession mixed in with some text meant to get attention, but I think it’s a worthy read. Especially to...

    Way too early forecasts

    Athlon puts our roster in the middle, a hair above average for the ACC: https://athlonsports.com/college-football/acc-football-ranking-rosters-2022. We're 7th out of 14 teams, with Clemson, Miami, UNC, and FSU up at the top. They say nice things in the paragraph--each team gets one long...

    Winter Olympics and idealism

    When we look at the NCAA, we're presented with ideals like amateurism and love of the game, while there are brazen plays for money and corrupt dealings all around. The Olympics and FIFA may be worse--the amount of self-dealing in the Olympics can be nauseating. You do get stories like this...
