    Just not a player's coach, it appears.

    Note to CPR. Take a lesson from the mayor and contact all 3 immediately. I'm sure we'll still be in need of good linemen in 2 years.

    He has guys leaving before he hurts them now, so maybe it is an improvement.

    Re: Klenakis impact

    Hopefully having a new OL coach that the players enjoy playing for will give them an extra boost to play beyond their potential. It seems like they had the desire to play last year destroyed by a coach they didn't like. That is a good sign for this year.

    Re: Klenakis impact

    How hard is it to get along with your players? You think these coaches would take notes from Rhoads or a Hoiberg. Some coaches are just too damn old school. Kids don't like old school coaches anymore. They want someone they can laugh with. Have fun at practice with.


    Just Win.

    They can take notes from Hoiberg but Rhoads isn't known by anyone on the football team as a player's coach. He's from the "hard work makes you successful and if you're failing you need to work harder" mentality and it doesn't resonate with the players.

    If that didn't resonate with the players, they'd have to be complete morons. Which is why I believe you are full of crap. Hard work is precisely what makes someone successful, and if you aren't succeeding it is 100% correct that you DO need to work harder.

    So in other words Rhoads is of the common sense mentality? and that doesn't resonate with the players?

    I'm going to go ahead and call BS on that. If that were true I would say we need new players.

    Re: Klenakis impact

    I remember at one point we wanted to promote him into OC.

    I would think that this addition by subtraction and Mangino (who has had his run-ins in the past, but I would imagine Rhoads and him had a long talk and he's on a very short lease when it comes to player discipline) would have to turn the offense around pretty quickly.

    Too bad it is just in time for a transitonary period for the defense. I trust Wally to throw something competent together, however. Should be interesting.

    No more cynical comments from somebody (ahem couldn't possibly be me) in Morgantown at the end of the first-quarter, "hooray basketball season time now!"

    Both that game and that basketball season ended way better than I expected. :)

    Re: Klenakis impact

    I'm sure CPR works the kids hard, but the difference is he sticks up for the kids and treats them well. So the kids play hard for him. Sounds like coach K was just a complete *****.

    Hard work + good guy = successful
    Hard work + dick = unsuccessful

    Re: Klenakis impact

    I would have to think that our offense HAS to be better this year. An incompetent OC, players who hated their position coach, injuries... Maybe we should be surprised we won 3 games. Maybe our talent level is better than they showed last year and the dysfunction held us back. I'm hoping, anyway.
