    Interesting article. Hope the powers that be at least look in to this concept. Something in our strength program needs to change unless you get wins for season ending injuries. Thanks for sharing.

    This sounds like every athletic strength program on earth.

    Flexibility and getting lower than the guy in front of you.

    A winning combination.

    Thanks for sharing, BH. Hope the staff looks into this.

    Actually no, it sounds like the exact opposite of our current plan which we have been told was to bring explosiveness and brute strength.

    "We have been told" by whom? You don't think there's plyometrics, dexterity training, flexibility training, power lifting, crossfit-esque stuff being done by our football program? I've seen them train. They do it all.

    This is a very interesting article. It points out the signifcant flaws in traditional weight training programs, which seem to be contributing to all the horrible injuries. Reducing number of games missed due to injury by 87% is unbelievable. After what happened to the Gators this season, Dillman and Muschamp need to jump the next flight to Stanford and learn a few things.

    Maybe the difference is where the emphasis is? I recall reading the same thing envirogator did.

    I did find the article a bit vague on details. The stats seem to support that Stanford is doing something that is significantly different than other programs.

    I'm not sure it shows that, honestly. It shows a year over year decrease in injuries. I can almost guarantee that we'll see a pretty similar, ridiculous number next year due to the # of games missed this year.

    In fact, if you compare 2012 to 2013 I bet it's somewhere in the same range, and yet we had the same coaches and strength staff.

    Which injuries might have been prevented this season with this radical training?

    It can't hurt to look into what other successful programs are doing.....but the bottom line is we had an unprecedented streak of bad luck in the injury department this year. The S&C program has nothing to do with crashing a scooter.....at least I think it didn't have anything to do with it!!

    This is my primary issue - there are things you can do and then there are impact-related injuries that will happen whether you're using Stanford's advanced, multi-faceted training system or UF's patented "Only Bench Presses and Barbell Curls" training program.

    No, see, when guys crash scooters at Stanford, it's the pavement that breaks, not ligaments.

    Well I guess we can agree to factor out those scooters. Convinced the rest of it is all smoke and mirrors and there is nothing wrong with our training?

    Agree. I'm not sure how much different the Stanford program is, but any program that can get those kind of results needs to be looked at.
