    So it is our lack of recruiting ready to roll players that is dooming us?

    No, the reason they bounce is to help/cheat themselves out of the hole. Just like bench press and bouncing the bar off your chest to help it back up.

    Thats why a lot of people use box squats, because it takes away your ability to bounce. You sit down to the box and lose momentum and the only way to get back up is to explosively fire your hips and glutes to stand back up.

    Just like YM was talking about KO only being able to get down to a 19" box and now he can get down to a 13" box. Thats a massive increase in flexibility and explosive strength, without hurting your knees. For KO to do box squats down to a 13" box is very impressive. Go find a box 13" tall and sit on it and stand back up with proper form. Then try it with weight. The amount of power and strength that takes from your hips is incredible.

    We are the only fan base in America that blames everybody from the janitors to the assistants and never ever put's anything on the Head Coach. It's becoming laughable.

    If you read this board, you'll know a large majority of CF does put blame on the head coach, it's just that most don't believe Rhoads is the problem, rather his inability to make personnel changes and fix problems is allowing the problems to continue to happen.

    So now it comes down to technique and who wants it more. I'm not sure how much has changed when Coach K came in, but there could be some different techniques or calls that might be affecting our play. Plus, the injuries and we are what we are.

    If it was me I would have put the Godfather of the pistol at OC and had him calling the plays.
    YA, because he has proven so much here AND been so great without CK!! said before, I know, but jeeesh
