    Todd Blythe's Quote about Offseason Conditioning

    The following is from the 02/08/07 Sports Section of the Ames Tribune:

    MEN AT WORK. Offseason workouts under new strength and conditioning coach Ken Sheppard have been challenging, to say the least.

    Weight lifting and conditioning sessions have pushed Cyclone players to their limits.

    "It's been tough. It is a little different than what we are use to," receiver Todd Blythe said. "It's all high intensity. We are getting after it. Guys have been puking and stuff like that, but it's been real good for us."

    Sounds more like a towers party my freshman year than conditioning. I love that quote.

    Re: Todd Blythe's Quote about Offseason Conditioning

    Man I love to hear this... there have been threads that talk about "swagger" and intensity.... I truly believe the players going on runs in february, in the dark, working out until puking, will help them come august with a new toughness, and hopefully some swagger, that they didn't have in seasons past.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
