    From another site Braun is setting up a visit to Auburn and has been talking to Ohio State and Texas. He says "Florida seems like a really good match."

    Even at 9 reps, you don't even attempt that as an o-lineman in a combine setting. You fake an injury saying you tweaked a shoulder during training for the combine. That type of performance just eliminates you from consideration for being weak and lacking work ethic.

    Agree. That is pathetic for a graduating lineman.

    Yep. I sat w/ some pretty cool USCe fans at our game in Gainesville. They talked about how banged up they were, now many season ending injuries, and what a run of bad luck.
    I just said "that sounds familiar." They acted surprised- I guess they didn't know about all our injuries under WM.

    I can't explain it either, but it can't be a coincidence.

    I'm not sure what the issue was. Under Muschamp, I think the player motivation and strength was pretty good but I almost wonder if the kids were pushed too hard or maybe incorrectly under Dillman where joints were being overstressed, causing players to be more susceptible to injuries. But the defensive always played strong and tough, but they had no faith in the offense and gave up once we got down by more than a touchdown.

    Under McElwain, I still think the underlying issue came from his leadership. I think his personality was just incredibly soft and that emanated throughout the entire program. Totally agree about our guys on both sides of the ball getting manhandled by clearly inferior talent. I will never forget him crying after the Kentucky win. It seemed to me that the players had an attitude that it was okay to lose. And except for the players who motivated themselves to push to get stronger, it seemed like the players just went to the weight room and went through the program they were given.

    We hear good coaches described as "detail oriented" so often that it's tired and cliched, but McElwain really seems like the perfect example of a coach who wasn't detail oriented at all. I don't think McElwain is dumb, exactly, and I don't even think he's an awful coach, per se, but he seemed to lack the exhaustive attention to detail needed for a high-level head coach. Things just fell through the cracks with him.

    That’s a very good view of it. Very accurate I think.

    Yes, I agree with what you say, but I think he was also really soft. I remember one game where I think Franks made a really horrible read and threw an easy interception. When Franks came to the sideline, McElwain and he were kind of laughing it up. I mean McElwain didn't have to get in Frank's face and yell, but that seemed like a real "coachable moment" for a QB coach and instead he's just yucking it up like it wasn't a big deal.

    Not sure but when I see savage workouts there is a LOT of focus on natural pushing/pulling rather than just weightlifting. Lifting weights tends to focus on certain muscles as the weight travels the same path again and again. Contrast that with force in an athletic competition where the variety of angles and varying forces is incredible. I think full body functional activities are one way to lessen injury (always liked bailing hay but not much of that in Gainesville)!

    Mama Cass didn’t choke to death; the autopsy revealed she died of a heart attack. It was initially reported that she choked on a sandwich but no one ever found a sandwich. The erroneous initial reports became urban myth.

    Heart attack is believable. She was large.
