I assume that's the same video some of us have already seen.  There are also videos out there of Coach Hinton on ball security and Coach Withers doing a "high point drill."  I'd post the links here, but I can't access YT at work.

Meh.  But can Herman teach our QBs how to coordinate video? That's what I'm looking for in a QB coach.

LOL.  I didn't really follow the staff that closely in the past.  Is there an example out there of what Siciliano did with his QBs?

He's referring to the resume Siciliano brought with hiim to Columbus, which included stints at glorified high school programs Urbana and NC A&T before hitting the big time editing Bob Stoops' game film at Oklahoma.

This is what qualified him to be Ohio State's QB coach. That and being from Youngstown.

I didn't know much about him.  Thanks for that.  Wow...

Yup, one of the reasons we're all happy to have a real QB coach. Of course in JT's defense he usually had a really close relationship with his QBs and had a close hand on his QB's training. Once he left though, Siciliano was left to 'coach' the QBs by himself. Lord know Bollman couldn't help him, he was already over his head trying to call the offense.

Yep Tressel was pretty much the quarterback coach & Siciliano just had the title which played a part of why things went to shit so badly last year.

Believe I read somewhere that Siciliano was supposed ot be the "Heavy" or in otherwords he was the coach that got on the players and did all the yelling at them so that JT did not have to be the bad guy.

Was anyone else thinking "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball" during the segment where he throws bean bags at the QBs?

Is it just me or is Braxton's footwork incredibly fast during the bag drills?  That kid is quick!
