    ANy other FB Coaches here?

    For the second year in a row, ISU is having their spring coaches' clinic on Easter Weekend and for the second year in a row due to church and family obligations, I (and the staff I am on) won't be going. Really wish they wouldn't do that.
    Anyone else not able to make it or going? Bums me out because I like the info and also the breakout sessions with the ISU coaches, but I just can't make it happen.

    Same situation here. I hate that they do it on Easter weekend.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    The attendance was quite a bit higher than the Chizik clinics of the previous two years. I know they want to avoid the same weekend as Iowa's coaches clinic, which is this weekend. That kind of limits their options.

    I am hoping that a later Easter next year will solve things. ALthough I was hoping an earlier Easter this year would. Not sure what is wrong with the following week but I'm sure there's something and its not just random that they chose next weekend for it.

    I agree, there must be a good reason why it can't be the following week - I'm going to ask.
    The issue of not holding it the same weekend as Iowa is a courtesy to the coaches, who can then go to both.
    Mac would always hold his clinic the same weekend as Fry and Ferentz, and many coaches would have to make a choice. His coaches clinic consistently outdrew Iowa's too...

    Yes. I was at the last couple of Mac's. Good Crowds. It was a lot easier being in DSM just to drive back and forth to Ames rather than planning a weekend in Iowa City along with the 10-day treatment of Cipro that followed.

    I wonder if the week after is to close to the spring game. I know that last week of spring ball is a huge evaluation time on all fronts: system, implementation, coaching and competition.

    I hear you, I think only one coach off our staff is going. Having it on Easter weekend is tough, their attendance would be a lot higher if they changed it.
