    Sounds like the TEs look like studs and the WR corps needs some help.

    Great news. Hopefully he sticks with the Hawks and gets a good shot at contributing for 2 years!

    Can I just say I have a source?

    This is what I have been told...

    No 1 O and D looked really good and both lines looked good. No 2 offense did not. Concern at CB and WR. Petras can really sling it and Mansell has not looked at as good. I don’t want anyone to get carried away, just passing along what a little birdie told me.

    Apparently Copeland is more ripped in person than he appears on TV.

    It's obvious the source is Kirk Ferentz, I don't get why people keep bugging him.

    2 year to play one at another FBS due to year of sitting out.
    2 years to play 2 at FCS or Iowa. If you play another sport after 4 years of 1 at a school can play 1 year of something else. Like Timmy D coming back to run track for 1 year after football.

    According to Jellyfish10, "Lots of 'F' words being used." I presume those would be
    "F" words like...fabulous, fantastic, fervent, felicitous, fearless, first-class, flashy, flawless, fleet, focused, formidable, and fun? Fantastical... ;)

    But really, other "F" words, IMHO of course, have no more business on the football field than they do in the classroom. Teaching is teaching, and good coaching is teaching.

    KF says he's not just building football players, he's building men. Well, maybe a ban on the infamous "F" word would be an effective building block in that process.

    I had the misfortune of attending several football practices--all of which were open in those days--that were directed by short-term head coach Frank Lauterbur. His staff swore so much that it made Andrew Dice Clay blush.

    I've played and I've coached, and I never found swearing helpful in either role. Like I said, the football field is just another classroom, and it should be treated as such...IMHO.

    To any coaches who were at the clinic, your observations, opinions, insights would be very welcome. We are football starved here!

    Those "F" words were Fleck because he is on everyone's mind. They use Fleck to curse because they can sense the future.

    Don't deny it either.

    Linebacker? What can you say about linebacker? Is that the #2 fall off you are talking about?

    I teach physics and engineering ... and "F" words are dropped in my classroom too. If language is used in a way that doesn't disrespect and/or disempower people ... but instead facilitates how students relate to their teachers/coaches ... then I don't give a rats ass if people drop expletives on the practice field OR the class-room.

    Of course, my personal philosophy here is also part of the reason why I've never had the desire to teach anybody other than college students. There are few things more annoying than a parent with a corncob stuck too far up their anus - I sincerely feel for high school teachers who have to put up with overly-triggered parents.

    Kinda figured we would hear about Colbert even though he was not on the pre-Spring 2-deeps.

    As long as your source is not CNN, it's probably credible. Lol

    A well-placed f-bomb is a great and very effective teaching tool. I'm sure our staff knows how to use it properly.
