All you have to do is watch the games. Most teams are faster, stronger, and much more athletic than us. Our defensive line has improved the last couple years, I use a team like Iowa for example. When they made up their minds to run the ball on us, they were able to shove it right down our throats. Running backs driving straight ahead for several extra yards after contact. And same with Wisconsin. Both teams we have better recruits than.I hear this a lot and I don’t know what goes on inside the S&C program other than what I hear on HM and from a few other people. But people keep saying we see it on the field. I’m thinking about the 2020 2-deep and the only person I can think of who has struggled with their physical development was Martinez in 2019 but not 2020. McCaffrey put on good weight and stayed fast and athletic. The O line is developing. Farniok had limitations but he came with those. He’s not as athletic as the recent recruits. The D line was full of young guys who looked fantastic physically and played really well for their age. Even Daniels is transforming his body. Our DBs looks great. And obviously we have freakishly athletic guys like JoJo and Luke Reimer who would be Exhibit A against this claim about our S&C program. I don’t doubt what you guys are saying about our methods being so different from the rest of the country, but can you point to the evidence on the field for me? Who is it that you’re referring to?
