    Weight lifting and football are two very different sports. It is not difficult to be great at weight lifting and totally inept at football.

    Spot on. Look no further than the 30+ year old muscle heads walking around. 90% of them were turds on the athletic field, but now that the athletes are getting old and fat, they feel better building muscles.

    Gotta laugh at the squawk turds who follow the isu strength coach just so they can show off their idiocy. Twitter is ground zero for biggest dorks on the internet.

    For those who don't follow him, who is in the club? Farniok, Morrissey, and Omoile are my guesses. Plus this Ankeny kid. I hope there are others?

    Miller, huh? Surprises me a bit. Wouldn't have guessed he could move that kind of weight.

    Re: Yancy tweet

    IMO, the bench press does not translate to the football field very well at all, and 400 isn't really that impressive.

    That being said, I hope the hard work in the weight room translates to the field this year...

    Well if 400lb isn't very impressive and we only have 6 out of 100, we are in trouble. Id like to see you put up 400+ and impress me.

    Well, there must be some amount of transfer between the bench and the football field or it wouldn't be such a popular exercise at the college and professional level. Unless you know more than all of those players, strength coaches, trainers, etc.

    As a lineman, you have to extend your arms and pop your opponent. It seems like a bench press would help you develop some strength and power in that endeavor.
