Okay, you also said in another thread that you can see much improvement. So how much better do you really think we'll be?

Once you stack this conditioning and work in for a couple of years with the introduction of faster and bigger athletes...it will get ugly....look at the pro combine this year...Coach Morris had one of the best receivers in the whole combine from SMU...dude was a monster.....cant wait to see these types of players coming to Arkansas.

Auburn have been in good shape for several seasons in a row. This is our first spring of the right kind of conditioning. Y'all need to give it time. They will lose more weight by game day and will be faster. We need more Elite speed don't get me wrong but yesterday is not what we will look like September 1st

From a weight lifting perspective, I agree.  From an endurance and muscle twitch perspective 5 months is plenty of time to see significant results.

Sure but it hasn't been five months. I don't think they could implement any kind of nutrition or training program until after winter break. I could be wrong.

Will not take 2-3 years. Speed will have to be recruited but the strength and conditioning will pay off this year. The lineman will be in better shape they will be better athletes just on weight loss and conditioning. You can make huge improvement in a short time with 18-19 year old athletes.

Isn't that what we've said every time we get a new S&C coach?  how about we give them a couple of years and see.

You are suffering from PTBD too? Bielema made me hesitant to believe anything I hear - just want to see improvement on the field.

Iím not saying it will take 2-3 years to win.  It usually takes 3 years to have your team set.  See Petrino in years 1, 2 & 3 for a similar reference point.

Don't think we could have done worse. Nutts staff was way better when it comes to lineman.

I am pumped about this guy. He will be an improvement I have no doubt about that. But he need talent to work with. It dang sure won't take 2-3 year to see the results. Kids can put on 15-20 lbs of muscle or lose 20 in months not years.

I agree. It will take time he has to recruit more talent. But a great S&C coach can make a huge difference in  a short time. More time he can make more difference.

Well, generally speaking, it is almost always true. However, a lot of that has more to do with the excitement of a new staff than than the actual prowess of the staff itself. Bring in anybody new for basically any reason and you'll see the work ethic of the players increase.

Or that the previous staff was terrible at recruiting. Even the greatest cook sucks with bad ingredients.

There is one single point of reference in S&C that says it all, and that is my good friend, the late John Stucky. The reason Nutt's teams were so successful goes back to Don Decker, whom John told me was one of his most outstanding students along with Kirk Woolfolk and Rob Glass. When John left Okahoma State in 1987 to come to Arkansas he left Glass behind, who is still there. Rob Glass continued the Stucky legacy with a young assistant by the name of Trumaine Carroll. He is now bringing that legacy to Fayetteville. IMHO oppinion Ben Herbert was as worthless as tits on a boar hog(pun intended) with his Mr Universe before and after body builder pictures. Our teams overall during the Bielema era were weak and slow. Hopefully with coach Tru this will change exponentially. It may not show against Alabama this first year but the rent a wins should not cost us any embarrassing upsets like Toledo Rutgersand  Texas Tech. We should win the ooc games at home and split our home conference games and no Coastal Carolina embarrasments. 8-4 is totally not out of question. Hang on to your hog hats and enjoy the ride. I'm getting excited.

Isn't the HC still in charge of the S&C coach?  In regards to Herbert if he wasn't getting it done would it not then have fallen on the HC to either motivate, guide the S&C coach into getting it done or replace him?  Also doesn't the S&C coach still have to follow or be guided by the HC's desires and principals when it comes to what the HC wants to see in terms of strength and or conditioning?  Just like coordinator hires the coordinators may have their own philosophies or specialties but in the end they have to adapt to or follow what the HC ultimately wants.

It seems to me CBB directed Herbert to bulk guys up, which he did. Turns out that was a terrible strategy. Itís a bit like a commercial builder. If the architect tells them to build it, they build it. If it turns out to be a terrible idea, itís the architectís fault.

Herbert conditioned our players according to what Bret asked him for. Coach Tru is shaping our guys to play in Coach Morris' scheme. Both Conditioning Coaches did a good job with our players.. Coach Tru really connects well with the players, really like how our guys have transformed.
