No wristbands allowed?!? Are we really going to sweat these kinds of details? Will that make for a better football team and drive wins? Jeeze - a big red flag just went up for me on PR. I would prefer it if he made a bigger deal of "no arm tackling allowed" rather than no wristbands allowed. You have got to be kidding.
The program that doesn't get blue chip recruits and that doesn't have Texas, California, and Florida in it's back yard MUST rely on the details, however small, to get them by. Dress and grooming standards promote uniformity which in turn promotes unit cohesion which promotes winning. It will make a better football TEAM.

May perpetual light shine upon him.
What have you had to be happy about in this program since you have been alive? Sure, there have been wins here and there, but conference championships? BCS bowls? That would make me happy. The "we're gonna hit you coming off of the bus" talk is nice, but the "wristbands are something 5th & 6th graders do" is a little underwhelming.
I can't believe your still talking about wristbands. Isen't that being a lil 6th gradeish?
I was at practice and the whole thing took about 4 seconds. Basically before practice started he said to the players that "they dont make you a better football player and if youre wearing them take them off" No one said anything and they just moved on. I didnt even think of it as a big deal about it at all until everyone keeps bringing it up in the news
