    Winter Workouts

    Looking forward to the spring football season thread but until then this is all we got.
    What do you have and I truly appreciate comments from those in the know.

      I heard at the end of the Hall and Willis podcast that Schmitty was happy about the way things are going and no one was in his dog house yet. That was four days ago

        What I have heard on podcasts is all is going well which makes me somewhat concerned. No one is bitching about how tough the workouts are. Has Schmitty mellowed?

          Or the current players listened to former players and were prepared to work harder.

            Makes sense but remember they were soft to begin with due to Wylie.

              Sometimes people only put forth the expected level of effort, whatever that is.

                Seems like I remember some player saying his H.S. workouts were tougher than Wylie's. Sad.

                  It was Brayden Willis, and here is a tweet from him yesterday.

                    Perrion Winfery stated, that guys who normally didn't finish workouts under Wiley, are turning into real dogs and killing it with Schmidty. The workouts are more difficult, but guys are being held accountable and putting in the work.

                      We need to do a comparison of the players from last spring game to this spring game. Just to see the difference a few months with Schmitty makes

                        Does Schmidty have a grace period where player injuries are not his fault?

                          Not until the second injury is it Schmitty's fault.

                            Shmidty is training their minds/will power just as much as their body.
                            6 years ago I was soft fat and weak. Since then I've gotten into body building and look worlds better now at 43 than I did at 33.
                            Yes my physique is improved 10 fold, but I'm more impressed with how my will power is improved 10 fold.
                            ​​​​​
                            I can only imagine how mentally tougher and how much more will power these kids will have now.

                              Bengals could have used you on their offensive line last night, dude. I said it last night, and I'm sticking by it: there aren't three crumb covered f--kers on this board, that couldn't have lined up and drove the scrawny, pathetic mess that is the Bengal's RT #75 back into the QB. Do some squats, for crying out loud! For a lack of any of defined muscle tissue at all on their O-line, the Bengals lost the damn Super Bowl.

                                I'm sure Schmitty has mellowed compared to early 2000s - he's had to adjust his styles to this generation of players also. Couple of things - aTm teams physically looked like they belonged with the best of them - I've watched them closely every year since Schmitty has been there. In addition, we've added the ex-NU S&C coach (James Dobson). I say this to say that we've added coach who brings different talent/style/perspective to the team. I hope the strength staff (Schmitty, Dennison, Dobson) and the Sports performance guys (Scott Kolok, Josue Matias, and Reggie McGrew) stick around for a few years. I think we will reap rewards of their expertise and will give us an edge against most teams.

                                  He’s starting with guys who were getting pushed around by Kansas in some cases. It can’t go straight to 2000s horror stories in a week or they’ll all tear everything and quit.

                                    Excellent. Good information. I've been impressed with the additional staff beyond Schmitty, and Schmitty himself will have benefitted from his experienece deep in the heart of Texas.

                                      He seems to sort of have. He's come across as more positive and uplifting in the tweeter machine videos than I remember(I didn't witness anything out of season or spring really) but that said, he wasn't ever a dick to the guys just to be a dick that I ever witnessed. Just incredibly strict.

                                        Is that tear as in rip, or tear as in cry? You are right about pushed around by Kansas. Every single Man Card should have been revoked and not returned until Schmidty says so.

                                          I think it was Teddy who said Schmitty’s plan was to gradually ramp the intensity up.

                                            Unfortunately for A&M... Schmidt made no discernable difference in their on the field record. LOL.

                                              Winter workouts for JS are only to get you in shape enough to try and complete a summer workout. These boys don’t have a clue what’s coming.

                                                My list of teams I'm going to enjoy seeing get their ass kicked this year
                                                1) ( You know the first one)
                                                2 ( You know the second one)
                                                3 Aggies with all those 5 stars and high expectations.
                                                Racking my brain but I can't think of any others.

                                                  As long as Jimbo is in charge good recruiting classes at least two losses and no trips to the Ship. I hope coaches there twenty more years!

                                                    He's a good coach, not a magician ;)

                                                    You can't overcome the old school offense that Jimbo is running. He's developed some NFL players on aTm's roster.

                                                        Kind of reminds me of a recent coach at Texas who is now at NC.

It's still kinda freaky though. Here you are, slicing behind the gill, and filleting down to the bone and back to the tail, and the fish is looking at you. Flip him over and do the other side then toss him in the trash. I've come out the next morning and those fish in the trash are still moving their mouths trying to breathe, and jumping around a bit. My pop always said "cold blooded animals can't feel any pain, they only feel restriction." Don't know if that's true or not, but it seems to be so.

Leave it set for a couple days, and when it thaws out, the catfish is swimming merrily about. Freaks me out.

It's still kinda freaky though. Here you are, slicing behind the gill, and filleting down to the bone and back to the tail, and the fish is looking at you. Flip him over and do the other side then toss him in the trash. I've come out the next morning and those fish in the trash are still moving their mouths trying to breathe, and jumping around a bit. My pop always said "cold blooded animals can't feel any pain, they only feel restriction." Don't know if that's true or not, but it seems to be so.

                                                                                  Also, I've caught catfish, put them in a bucket of water and then it freezes overnight and the bucket is froze solid. Leave it set for a couple days, and when it thaws out, the catfish is swimming merrily about. Freaks me out.

The workouts are more difficult, but guys are being held accountable and putting in the work.

There had been some national controversy over it as it was kind of at the height of PETA. I think Limbaugh or somebody had said lobsters couldn't feel pain or something and it set a bunch of people off. Anyway, Shannon and Spinozzi pretended they did all these things to a live lobster. I remember where they put the lobster in the dryer (Shannon later said it was a roll of masking tape). People were calling in like crazy all upset at them. Some of them thought they were being insensitive to the issue but some of them thought what they were doing was real.

                                                                                                    Dr Victor Hutchison, emeritus research professor from the Department of Zoology at the University of Oklahoma, is a herpetologist and has dealt with frogs all his professional life.

                                                                                                    Indeed, one of his current research interests is "the physiological ecology of thermal relations of amphibians and reptiles to include determinations of the factors which influence lethal temperatures, critical thermal maxima and minima, thermal selection, and thermoregulatory behavior". Now 'critical thermal maxima' means the maximum temperature that the animal can bear.

                                                                                                    Professor Hutchison says: "The legend is entirely incorrect! The 'critical thermal maxima' of many species of frogs have been determined by several investigators. In this procedure, the water in which a frog is submerged is heated gradually at about 2°F per minute. As the temperature of the water is gradually increased, the frog will eventually become more and more active in attempts to escape the heated water. If the container size and opening allow the frog to jump out, it will do so."

                                                                                                    So real-life experiments show that the frog-in-boiling-water story is wrong.[/QUOTE
