Would love to get the back story on that crap. That’s BS to not use it.
Well the one thing we know for sure was that bo never used the performance lab. We know this because when riley came in they did testing and a bunch of the players commented on never having been their.
This might be better after I saw your second post.
Still waiting to see the link to where our coaches said they'd added 30 lbs of muscle to players. You know, what the marketing campaign was supposed to have said? i don't remember seeing it and the google machine failed to find it for me too. i think those claiming the coaches were marketing this 30 lb weight gain stuff, ought to find it.
I don’t know about the muscle part, but I do know from experience it is quite easy to put on 30 pounds between January and Fall Camp. For those interested, I can clue you into my secret diet.
I know this is sarcasm, but it's worth noting that there are players who are significantly maxed out and it will be difficult to get a lot more out of them. I'm a bit skeptical of a lot of Texas recruits because they are maxed out so much of the time.
Sometimes the under the radar guys have more up-side, but that's up to our coaches and Duval/Ellis to figure out who has the potential and who doesn't
I think you also need to take into consideration that it was not even a full year. What are the chances that they gained 30 lbs in muscle in 8 months? That's essentially what the staff was claiming in gains.
Also, I don't think SSO was offereded, he just always responds like that. Haha
I apologize, sometimes i respond as if I’m on one of my group texts. There’s one I still have saved on my phone of a coach claiming 20 pounds of muscle in 2 months. Stated on a public media platform for everyone to see. Husker fans ate it up. “What were we doing before?!?” The marketing machine won again.
Just shook my head.
I think if you check the date just in article, which was 4/9/18, then 23 lbs of muscle in less than 5 months of being in the program is a pretty drastic muscle gain. Is it 30 lbs exactly? No, but if it's impossible for someone to gain 30 lbs of muscle in a year, what's the likelihood they could gain 23 lbs in 5 months?
This is my favorite one from one of the coaches:
Just a quick 20 pounds of muscle in 2 months. I’m fine with the marketing and all that, but again, everyone was on board. We don’t need to lie. But it will be pretty sweet when Stille is a 400 pound ball of muscle at the rate he is gaining.
We have another instance of a number needing to be exact (coaches saying 30 lbs this time, as if 23 lbs in less than 5 months isn't good enough) and taken literally. Oh what are the 50 other things again? SMH
I can add 30 lbs between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
No it's not 30 lbs AND it was not the coaching staff but a single player. A player, not the coaches making statements for a marketing campaign. A player than may have confused a 23 lb weight gain with lower fat index percentage as a full 23 lb muscle gain. But more importantly, where is the link that shows our coaching staff...REPEAT our coaching staf telling us of player that had gained 30 lbs of muscle? You know...the lying marketting campaign...
Did Duval say that Stille gained 20 lbs of muscle in 2 months or did you just infer it? I went back through all of Duval's tweets from that time on, and not a single claim of excessive muscle weight added for any player. Some marketing campaign, eh? In fact, the tweet you posted here is no longer there, but evidence of what "happened" with this tweet is there. Duval retweeted Parker Gabriel, who made the claim...it was noted in a journal star article that Gabriel had written that said Stille had gained 20 lbs--not muscle, but 20 lbs. Parker then in his tweet claimed it was muscle, and evidently Duval viewed that as good pub and retweeted it...went along with it. he erred doing so and removed his follow-up tweet but left Gabriel's original tweet. Quite a conspiracy. There was no marketing campaign designed to deceive Husker fans...that's just baloney...get out your tin hats.
