I know a little about s&c, enough to be dangerous. From all indications, Shep was (is) old school and worked the tar out of kids with intensity the main goal of a workout.
Getty was (is) very much a technician and sometimes the intensity is sacrificed for the benefit of doing things correctly.
Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
Shep came from the Texas program. I would not say Texas players suffer from too much muscle mass and lack athletic performance.
You could have brought Chuck Norris in with his Total Gyms at Texas and still would have won a National Championship. Sometimes talent overcomes even a substandard S&C program. What disappointed me in Chizik he brought in Sheppard...just because. Little did he know his best candidate was the one he showed the door to. If he (Chizik) gets rid of Yoxall (Auburn's S&C)-who is also very good- then he really does not know what the hell he is doing.
