I think that's a great idea. I really like coach Morris.

I'm a fan of earning what you get especially when some have taken a lot for granted. I'm also a fan of no names on the back of jerseys until the entire team has earned the right and maybe these days, not even then. I prefer a "team" that values each other and works together as a unit, as opposed to a group of individuals on a team that have an attitude like, "I got to get mine".

I love all the major old-school treatments, down to the circa 1970s gray cotton sweatsuits. None of that high-tech, moisture-wicking, dri-fit crap. The magic marker name is a nice touch too.

This is just a way to appeal to old fans. Personally, I wish they’d use modern technology when it’s an option. You think that Dabo, Saban, or Belichick would pull this?

Well if you ask Morris, he would know since he worked under Dabo.

You know! Modern Technology !! They should all be sitting around playing video games, posting pics of themselves on Snapchat and twitter!


We all know this will not sit well with some of the snowflakes!! As for me, if it gets the attention of this younger generation and helps them understand things in life are not free and develops a sense of pride and TEAM before self, I am all for it!!! Once you graduate and enter the REAL world you have to work to get ahead!! This IMO is a lesson bigger than football, this is a lesson in LIFE!!

This is really just dumb.  Wearing ugly gray sweats during work outs isn't going to make the play calling any better next fall. 

And it seems everything Chad Morris does is just super great.  I'm sure his poop doesn't stink, either.  Then, when he's inevitably fired, everyone will make fun of the gray sweats and the stupid hammer down crap!  It will happen.

You are hoping and praying it happens which means you are hoping and praying the Hogs fail.

I don't  care one way or the other as long as it works.  It does make me wonder if Morris is still having trouble with some members of the team not completely buying in.

So, to be clear, you WANT the team to fail so you can be vindicated as the guy who said CCM will fail. Nice.

I like it. Get them down and dirty. Make them earn it.
I remember my freshman year in HS. First practice Coach lines us up. First thing he said was, "When I ask you something or tell you something, you say YES SIR". His first question was, "do you all think your tough"? We yell YES SIR.
I later regretted saying that. It was not true at that time. lol.

He didn't take away any technology.  Our guys are still working out with the best we have to offer.  He took away the Nike "swag".

Coach K at Duke did this exact same thing last year to his team. And yes, Dabo has done this before at Clemson.

I very seriously doubt Coach Morris makes his coaching/training decisions based on what he thinks fans' reactions will be.  This isn't an appeal to any fans, it's a method to get his players to realize they gotta work hard to earn nice things.

It does seem if there was more of an emphasis on "marketing" "logos" "branding" and Nike gear rather than the actual play on the field under the previous regime.  I find this course refreshing and only wish CCM would have done this last year regardless of any feelings he may have hurt.

BB was almost everyone's man until he wasn't anymore.  Once critical mass hit it was okay not to like him.  It's the fan cycle.  It will happen again.

I don't have a problem with it.  It's Morris's team to run as he sees fit.  I think things that are earned mean more in the end than the things that are handed to you.  So I can see a lot of upside with this tactic. 

Still, I'm going to remain a Debbie Downer until we win some dang football games.  Every day of the week besides game day, Morris seems to knock it out of the park.  Offseason always looks good and the recruiting in the early signing period gives me a lot of hope. 

But it will take some results on the field for me to get on the hype train.

BB was Hogs coach.  He lost me season 1 with his deer in the headlights sideline persona........ then cinched it with his ridiculous rules smarm at refs.  Such a pathetic showing from a guy that was hyped up so big.  The buck started and ended with him and he was always looking to dish it off somewhere.

You get an "A" for attitude today.  Nice work.  My guess..you are just the kind of person who would be on the team, encounter this, and not understand the meaning behind doing it.  It's a team sport, and the name on the back of your jersey, doesn't win jack squat for you.  Some traditional teams NEVER put their names on the jerseys....USC, Penn St., and Notre Dame come to mind off the bat. 

You'd be culled like a bruised apple.  Poof.  "Where did old Hoggish go?"  "Technology wasn't modern enough for him, and he thought he could win every game by himself."   ;)

All I know is I see wayyy more people on here now that didn't like him early than I ever did when we was early in his tenor.

He was hired to be the Hog Coach.  He got my support.  He started the smack about ‘out Bama-ing Bama’.  Down a couple notches.  Then a playbook it takes years to grasp, let alone run competently.  Then, the wheels came off when they continued with Brandon while he was obviously hurt/injured.  The ‘Hakuna-Ma-Ta-Ta’ philosophy.  And, the rumored, heavy drinking....  Done.  I’m no prude or puritan, but, enough’s enough and he should have been shown the door much sooner. 

When, Bama transitioned to a modern offense, and BB dug his heels in..... writing was on the wall(s).
