Great move....About ten years late.....Bronco has a very slow
@Howard S.My thoughts exactly.Wondering if the DN Sports
Staff have all left for summer vacation leaving a computer to spit out randomly
generated "we'll be fantastic this year" stories from the past?
Just win.Nothing else will stop the naysayers.
Change the name and change the year and this could be a story about Omer. What
we have here is a case of different name different year same old hype.
Having been a hs coach that has used explosive weighlifting in our program and I
am very glad that BYU finally has this. Results will show up next season as it
takes about a year to show up on the field. Realize also that the elite
programs have been doing this for at least five years and because they have
stayed old school this Glad they made the change. is one major reason BYU has
been spiraling downward in performance that past few years.
Ilove the pre-season hype and optimism but it can go south fast against teams
like the Cornhuskers if the preparation isn't the right stuff. Anyway,
until the real deal happens I'm going to bask in pre-season visions of
glory. Go Cougs and get the W's this year for a change please!
One on hand this sounds like a great addiion to the Y football staff and
conditioning program. On the other hand, shouldn't they have been doing
this for years?
With the Miami Bowl brawl still fresh in our minds, I'm not impressed with
having some guy yelling at the players every day and turning them into warriors.
I think they need to tone it down quite a bit, when you lead the nation in
personal fouls I don't think being an aggressive warrior is the problem.
Taking your helmet off and swinging it at the opponent is when it is time to
call off the warrior approach.
The physical training was definitely in need of a revamp. It sounds like a good
change; however, I know that hype precedes every season, especially from the
I was going to inform Cougar Colby that there is no need for paranoia, that
nobody was deriding Cougar fans for talking about preseason Heismans or
championships, but then some guy from Holladay comes on and justifies
Colby's prophylactic work. Sad how easy it is to make a fool of oneself by
not reading the preceding comments and just going with the same-old same-old.
I like what Coach Wintrich is doing. I am very optimistic that this will
improve our football team. Go Cougs!!
Traditional Olympic lifting causes a lot of injuries to many athletes. For me,
a fused back, fused neck, two rebuilt shoulders and a new hip weren't worth
it. Lifting can become very addictive - the heavier you lift, the heavier you
want to lift. Too many athletes become 'weight lifters'. Training
should make you a better athlete, not a lifter! Coach Wintrich is definitely on
the right track.
I hope it pays off. Good luck Cougars. The most important lesson BYU football
needs to learn, and I don't see it here, is that football is a team sport
and one player who seeks to dominate by taking it all on himself is not the
recipe for success. Because when he goes down, the team doesn't have time
to reinvent itself. History has shown that a one-player system will result in
that player going down.Go Cougars. Bring it to the field.
Welcome, Coach Wintrich. I've thought for years that Strength/Conditioning
needed an upgrade. I'm excited to see how your approach translates to the
Coach Wintrich gets it. The results on the field will be positive.Go Utes!
That explosive, aggressive drive on every play by every player is what we are
looking for in this BYU football team. It will be contagious to all of us fans
of the game. I'm looking forward to this season and hope and pray this
translates to less injuries on the playing field.Stay healthy, stay
mean, stay focused! Go Cougars!
I love the drive and motivation to be better. I just hope all the hard work
will translate to better outcomes on the field. It's going to be a tough
season but I'm expecting a better showing than last year with Taysom and
Williams at 100% recovery from their injuries.Go Cougars!
Before any haters from the team up north get on here, lets make a couple quick
points. Nobody in the article said anything about BYU winning a national
championship, going to a New Year's six bowl game, going undefeated, or
winning 10+ games. The article was about the new coach and impact he
is making in the strength and conditioning aspect of the team. Will this
translate into Ws, I sure hope so. But before the insecure fan base
up north starts trying to find meaning between lines that don't exist, we
need to point out what the article is really saying.On a side note,
as an Army Officer, I have worked with a few guys that were at the Citadel when
Wintrich was there. They absolutely love him, and felt that he brought a whole
new level to their organization's athletic performance. Hopefully it
translates to our boys in blue.
It will be interesting to see how this translates on the field. That is all that
This is huge because I know that no one else in the country is doing any of this
