    There's a lot of complaints about limited practices with full pads and tackling on these boards. I did my best to try to find the conference rules for practices pertaining to limitations of full contact.

    Pac-12: http://championships.pac-12.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/2016-17-P12-Handbook.v3.pdf

    "c. Fall/In-Season Practices. Pac-12 institutions shall limit full contact practices to two (2) per week during the regular football season [the period between the first regular-season game and the last regular-season game or Pac-12 Championship Game (for participating institutions)]."

    SEC: http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2018/0824/2018-19%20Commissioners%20Regulations%20-%20Football.pdf

    I cannot find anything about limited full contact practices in the SEC rules and regulations guidelines.

    Is this correct? Are PAC-12 teams less physical because the PAC-12 limits full contact practices while the SEC does not?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    For me it’s more about self limiting within the allowable practices. In those contact practice you are allowing to tackle your teammates. How often you do that and with what intensity is up to the head coach. Our scrimmages are 60 plays. Other schools are 120 plays. We tackle dummies.

    You get the sense with this staff that there could be no limit on full contact practices allowed and they would still stick to 1 p/week. Appears to be just their philosophy. A focus on maintaining fresh legs for the 4th qtr (which as a consequence often leaves us under-done for the first 3). Something about that ratio seems the wrong way around..

    The problem is our guys looks and plays tired in the 4th quarter.

    you know how you get a team fresh in the 4th qrt?
    Practice hard and get them in shape.

    Some of the players probably love the easy practice week, but the real studs that want to make the NFL should be upset.

    Muhammad Ali used to run first and then spar when he was tired so to build up his endurance. Unusual, but he could routinely box for 15 rounds and often outpointed his opponents.

    I'd have my guys running intervals up and down on hills and on dry beach sand during the off-season. Charlie Joiner and Marcus Allen would approve.
