    Blythe interview: bigger, stronger, faster, more explosive

    Scout.com: Todd Blythe Transcript

    I find the implication about Getty very interesting: didn't push too hard in the weight room for fear of injury to players because we had no depth.

    From January until now, Blythe has gained just over 10 pounds and decreased his body fat.

    I like that. :)

    From the article:

    "Every day we have an explosive movement, at least one, in the weight room."

    What are they feeding these guys?

    I think that it actually says more about the program as a whole. Unfortunately, we had some real problems recruiting, and getting kids into school. When you lose basically an entire class over three years due to circumstances beyond normal attrition, you have to make allowances elsewhere. Unfortunately, we had to make conditioning allowances.

    I phrased that poorly. I agree that it was something that probably had to be done.

    Re: Blythe interview: bigger, stronger, faster, more explosive

    Unfortunately, we were in a catch-22 over the past several years.

    I am still convinced, that Dan thought that 2000 was going to get him another job. And after Seneca's magic act in '01, he was sure that offers were going to be pouring in. When that didn't happen, it put him, and the program in a bind. Whoever was in charge of recruiting at that time, really dropped the ball, and that was why 2003 happened, we were totally outmanned that year, it was like 1996 all over. Think about 03, 40 of 48 two deeps returned, and that was the season that we got.

    After the end of 02, and the nightmare of 03, Dan knew he was here for the duration. His recruiting picked up a little, but it was so damaged by that season and a half, that the table had turned on the program.

    I am simply excited for the fact that we might actually USE our TE and open things up for Blythe.

    With a lack of Depth....this should have been the last place allwances should have been made. Chizik has the same Depth issue Mac did, but what are they doing?, they are getting them int the best physical mental shape possible. Maybe the problem with Mac's teams is....

    They were coddled....maybe the not pushing them in S@C is why we dropped some games late, or why players were hurt at the end of the season....

    Re: Blythe interview: bigger, stronger, faster, more explosive

    I want game-smarts in our players too, we need guys who know where the other team is gonna be, knows what all the formations are, how to adjust, etc., bcuz you can be the fastest and strongest in the world, but if you don't know where to go or where to be, it means NOTHING.

    Don't get me wrong because there is a natural instinct in some players, but that all comes down to coaching.

    Re: Blythe interview: bigger, stronger, faster, more explosive

    The workout he describes sounds a lot like the workout I just completed, the "Lean and Hard" workout by Mackie Shilstone. Basically it is 4 workouts a week, 2 hours each, each workout involving both weight training and sprint training (20-60 yard sprints for 2 days, and 100-200 yard sprints for 2 days). After 6 weeks I put on about 12 pounds gained about 15% strength and became leaner. It would have worked even better but I couldn't quite find the discipline to follow the diet program exactly.

    He talks about how past summer workouts involved 300 yard sprints.

    I can't image 300 yard runs being all that useful for a football player. If that is the type of summer program they did, then I just have to shake my head. Modern exercise science tell us that to train your body to become better at running 15-60 yards, you have to run repeatedly 15-60 yards during training. Not 300.

    I definitely want to know more about parmesan cubes. I don't think they had them when I was in school ('93-'98).

    Think mozzarella sticks, cut into about 4 pieces. Instead of mozzarella, you have parmesan cheese. The breading had some herbs (not "herb"), too. Absolutely tasty, but the next day always made you rethink your decision.
