"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got nine guys who better go do it again. Do it a little harder next time." -- Urban Frank Meyer -- I LOVE THIS DUDE!! :)
Wow! I like. I wouldn't be surprised to see someone try and sue over this, arguing that it affected one's draft stock.
Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
There are some big names on that list.
This blew up on twitter about a week ago. I loved it. Specer Ware is that RB from Ohio
That must be his lavender shirt list
Sounds like it is from before the season, but I still love it and it's a great motivational tool. Glad to see Barkevios Mingo not on there! Really hope the Browns consider drafting him AFTER trading back.
I remember reading that the worn-looking sheet of paper is constantly there, but the list of names is edited and updated as needed. Still not good to be on the list, but at least the scathing review wasn't made specifically for those players.
I wonder if this has anything to do with the mass exodus of players from the program this offseason. I think something like 10 players declared early for the draft, and it's not like all of them are being projected as first round picks.
I think it is kind of hypocritical... Did the coaching staff call out the honeybadger every time he failed a drug test? If you're going to point out the responsibilities of players make sure it is aimed at their whole game... Not just the weight room. College athletes have a responsibility in the classroom, weight room, on the field, in the community, and what they put in their bodies. It looks to me like they pick and choose who they want to call out. I can't stand Les Miles, so I'm probably a little bit more critical of this.
I don't really see it being any different than making the players wear lavender. It's not like NFL scouts are hanging out in their weight room. It's just a motivational thing, You don't want to be on the list, you work your ass off. Here, you don't want to wear a lavender shirt, so you work you ass off.
The scouts aren't in the weight room, but social media has blown it up and I'm sure they've seen it now. You didn't address my point either. If you're going to call people out, call them out for ALL responsibilities. Maybe the honeybadger would've laid off the weed if he would've been called out on social media like these guys.
I didn't miss the point, my point is it's a motivational thing in the weight room. I don't think NFL scouts are really going to look at this and pass on a kid in the weightroom especially if he's a beast on the field and tears up pro days and the combine.
Can't stand Les Miles either!! But don't think it's hypocritical at all.These athletes want all the love,fame,and adoration,but don't want to pay the price for it.Don't see anything wrong with a coach calling them on the carpet for lack of effort or having a me first approach.And they'll be the first to want a transfer or saying why am I not getting playing time, etc. Honeybadger is a different story for a different forum.
