    Cautiously optimistic....talk is cheap and all that. But if these coaches are ALLOWED to approach practice how they seem to want to then we might just find some long overdue toughness after all.

    This is music to the ears:
    "But you get good at tackling by tackling. You get good at football by playing football. The underwear Olympics do not win football games. Seven-on-7 does not win football games. Running and hitting wins football games.”

    I’ll take that.
    All of it

    At the very least his words sound better than most of the D coaches over the last two to three years.

    the underwear Olympics is probably a reference to Helton style practices.

    It’s referring to testing like at the NFL Combine and some of the national camps.

    Coach O and Naivar are talking like coaches should talk.
    You don’t win without having the right plan and saying the right things.
    And following up and doing the right things.
    Yes, the fans can be fickle.
    But they are only calling what they see.

    I love the use of the word violence. Instilling fear in our opponents. You're not going to be Bama through finesse, you're going to have to punch them in the mouth and be violent.

    I like that he's already what we put on the field. Now it's all about conditioning and coaching and hopefully these new coaches can turn our recruiting woes around by locking Clay in the equipment room till next March.
