Re: Winter/off season conditioning
I've heard some of the same myself, out of the 3 players I actually know well - 1 previous starter said it feels like he is playing for a totally different team due to the rigorous workouts. and the 2 other players (one who has yet to see the field at all) said they are making sure EVERYONE works just as hard in the weight room and that no preferential treatment is being given to the "stars" of the team. All said they've been doing more running than before. From the sounds of personal accounts, I like sound of this team's work ethic and it says something about the new coaching staff, I just hope the players don't get down on it - thinking it's "bootcamp" like or w/e, bcuz they need to buy into Chizik's way if we're gonna win at ISU.
