Urban Meyer wants an angry team, but I don't think he'd be willing to torture his team in order to fire them up.

Rich Rodriguez, a confirmed sadist by extension of coaching at Michigan, is apparently willing to walk over international treaties to fire up his team.

From ESPN's Chantel Jennings, via Arizona Desert Swarm:

Andrew Warsaw, Arizona's Operation's Coordinator, is in charge of the Wildcats' music. After the series of promotional videos Arizona has released, it should come as no surprise that the practice music is also a little bit off-the-wall sometimes.

"Depending on what coach [Rich Rodriguez] wants, we will play whatever," Warsaw said. "If he wants to us to play something annoying during a certain period of practice we will play a baby crying for five-straight minutes, or songs like Barbie Girl or The Macarena."

I actually like the Macarena, I think it holds up quite well.

The idea of listening to Barbie Girl, or worse yet, a baby crying, makes blood leak from my ears.

And even bleeding out through my ears sounds more appealing than that.
