    Strength & Conditioning Coach - Yancy McKnight

    Has anybody heard how the players like this guy?

    Early on their was quite a debate between Cyclone Fanatics on keeping Chiziks guy and getting a new one. There were some people who seemed to be quite loyal to the old guy.

    This position is one of the most under rated on the team. It's very important to develop young men and this coach is around them as much as anybody.

    Thoughts?

    I have met him and like him. I have talked to a few players and they like him. They are buying in to what he is doing.

    The next time I hear a fan say something negative about a strength and conditioning coach's relationship with the players will be the first time. Point being, as fans, we never really know how well things are going in there. Every fan base thinks they have a fabulous S&C coach.

    This.

    Lift heavy stuff. Do it often.

    I remember a recruit we had come in when asked about the S and C coach.

    He said something like, "He's a big guy who is intense, just like every other S and C coach I've met."

    For the fans, it's the most over-rated position in all of football. The players will get out of it what they put into it. He may motivate them differently than others, but it's still up to the players.

    I would have to disagree. The strength coach is the backbone of the team. He is with the players more than any other coach. A good strength coach can truly build team and individual character. Getty may have been the main building block of coach Mac's success and the as he evolved may have led to his down fall. He may have become to technical and sophisticated for the game of college football. Just my opinion.

    I thought that Sheppard was doing a decent job, but as important as that position is, I have no problem with CPR wanting to bring in his own guy. McKnight seems to be a good hire. The Rice fans had nothing bad to say about him.

    What you wouldn't want is a S&C coach with some loyalty to the prior staff causing division in the team. It's probably a good thing that all of Chizik's guys are gone. That way CPR can have total trust of the players without anyone questioning whether the old way was better.

    I think the thing being overlooked is the importance of an S&C coach who has worked with the offensive coordinator previously. That might show the biggest gains over time.

    I rather have him tight with the DC, but oh well.

    I totally agree with you Clones85' and Bigguns on this. The S&C coach can play a huge role in the success of a football team. Building bulk doesn't necessarly mean stronger, quicker and in shape players.

    For the record, I never had any good words to say about the strength coach under Walden. Other players -- especially from Nebraska -- looked fit and strong. ISU players were big, but "fat" big. They wore out as the game went on. No conditioning whatsoever.

    Things got a little better under McCarney.

    I don't know about the S&C coach under Chizek. He might have been okay because the players didn't seem to be out of shape or out of condition. Poor coaching on the field was their downfall.

    Hate Iowa all you want but Doyle is a stud and Iowa is in the upper echelon(sp) in S & C. It's important. I will go vomit now.

    Thanks for saying what many were thinking, but had already brushed their teeth this morning.
