    What is the process?

    And where is it written down at?

    The first step of the process is to never talk about the process

    I think this thread has run its course--at least I hope so.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    My attempt at a serious answer.

    It is the application of the Bo Pelini philosophy for success. Any further definition would rely on a knowledge of that philosophy and since it is not written anywhere that I know of, I just have to fit pieces into that knowledge base from observation.


    Or, you could just say it is coach-speak for doing what he tells you to do.

    The quote that surprised me was "I'm not a results oriented person."

    If that's the case, what is the point of the "the process."

    Bo didn't think that one through.

    It's something every football (insert any sport) player learns when they first step on the field, "do your job".

    I don't think that at all. I'm not a results-oriented person. You know, people don't have any idea what's going on within this program. All they see is 9, 10, 10, 9. What I'm doing is continually looking for ways to improve the process because that's what I believe in - the process. The process will lead to the results. It's a day-to-day grind. That's what I try to get through to our team. It's part of the education. It's continually investing in the process and making the process better. That's what our program's built on. "The average fan doesn't even get what I'm talking about. They don't have the experience in the game. I wholeheartedly believe in what we're doing. But I'm always looking to make it even better."

    So, Bo keeps everything hush-hush then turns around and says the fans don't know what's going on....


    The not results oriented could explain our QB situation the past couple of years

    It doesn't just apply to sports...it definitely applied to the military too and even applies to my desk flying job these days....so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the average fan, and even the below average fan (whatever that is) gets it.

    Yeah, I wondered about that statement too.

    could we extrapolate the concept over to basketball? For both teams, we need a 'process' that leads to continual improvement. Some might think the both teams should be competing for a national title immediately simply by hiring a new coach. But, in both cases, there is some building/rebuilding required. To me, the word process could perhaps be replaced by the word 'plan'. When you hire a coach, you probably want to ask them how they plan to build a successful program that competes for titles...if they can't articulate the plan, you have nothing to measure them on except results. If you know the plan, you can measure them on how well they are executing the plan. For example (purely hypothetical), if TO is on board with the 'plan/process' and injuries short-circuit the next step in the plan, he can more easily assess whether a coaching change is needed. If the plan/process just isn't being executed or the execution doesn't bring the required results, you have a very easy decision to make.

    Good comments. You have to remember, we have a rookie head coach even after 4 years of duty. He seems to have serious difficulty communicating with anyone (media, fans) he can't get away with yelling at, so he marginalizes them. He seems to have little respect for anyone else...IMO his ego won't allow it. Funny how in the past he talked about winning championships, but now that he's been here long enough to prove himself...he tries to tell us that results don't matter so that he can get more time. He can't explain something he's continually trying to figure out and he seems concerned that his results won't be there any time soon. Thankfully, this stuff isn't brain surgery so maybe he'll keep getting lucky and getting the 9 wins or so that he doesn't really think matter.

    PS- interesting that the same folks that blew a gasket when Callahan said "it's only one game" won't have any problem with Bo being "non results oriented." That comment is frightening.

    Very nice.

    So GFOA is going to be your expert witness in today's Bo-bashing exercise?

    That's certainly somebody who has to have a great deal invested in not understanding coachspeak and having to slant an innocuous statement into something negative.

    I thought that Sip's article with Bo was very enlightening and certainly didn't feel threatened by any of the commentary. In fact, there seemed to be a decent amount shared that would give reason for optimism going into this spring, IMO.

    So, can you tell us what the process is?
