  1. I actually saw this photo on my Facebook feed through friends. Weird yahoo ran a story on it?
  2. But it is a bit disrespectful to just ignore local coaches as seems to be what he did. How did he get through 4 years without building any relationships. It's one thing when he can only visit from WKU but when he is a 15 minute drive it's a bit different. It seems multiple people in the local football community lacked anything good to say about him. Which is really odd and also surprising since it seems players liked him so much, why not the local coaches?
  3. What I mean is in a few years it won't matter to USF, it just be the past, but the network and relationships and knowledge gained by this student will impact the rest of his life.
  4. Blame the coaches being paid millions, not some teenage kid. A player going to SMU really is a fart in the wind as far as USF is concerned but for the player as an individual, where he attends school has a huge life impact and lifelong consequences. Let him go.
  5. What city does he think this is? Tallahassee?
  6. I think that is quite unusual behavior for a professional to be driving around at 5 AM unless they are catching an early flight.
  7. More targets don't help when Flowers misses the 7 yard pass to his right. The loss of Mack will be the largest hurdle for the offense to overcome.
  8. Yeah USF expectations aren't as high as Texas, USF only expects to go undefeated.
  9. I don't see not having a degree in exercise as a liability. If you have a lifetime of sports training, coaching, fitness, you don't necessarily need a degree to know good and bad practice and what is unsafe.
  10. With the few details we have, I am thinking these Oregon players were just not at all conditioned. It only affected 3 players? Out of 80+?... and this never happened at USF or ever before under Taggart or Leavitt? I'm wondering was there some other training happening in addition to the football workouts? When was their last workout before this one? Lots and lots of questions. People have gotten this condition from doing crossfit after not doing much activity before, while the rest of the crossfit class is totally fine. It seems to happen when there is a sudden jump in exercise intensity and volume without a buildup period. But being athletes I would expect these guys would be top 1% of fitness and already be well adapted to intense exercise.
  11. It may be the type of workout the players can achieve without damage if properly conditioned but considering they had to be admitted to the hospital, they clearly were not yet worked up the endurance or work capacity. This is is the same condition some people have gotten over working themselves in crossfit. Considering these are supposed to be top student athletes in great shape with a way above average fitness level it is really surprising.
  12. I had 2 classes with Nohra. He will not hold back, intense personality and a sense of humor. One of the most memorable and also difficult professors I had.
  13. This will have USFs name among the elite programs and Flowers name among the greats for all time. Great recognition for Flowers and the school. Flowers and Taggart get all the credit.
