    Talk about emotion on the sideline....if you can read lips and are easily offended, look out...

    A little emotion can go a long way with your team...

    I see your point but yelling the way Gruden does at Professional athletes is one thing, yelling like that at college kids is entirely another.

    I would argue that more passion on the college sidelines has more of an effect than in the NFL.

    Be more like Gruden? Do you really want our coach to be a poser who cares more about his persona on TV than anything else? Gruden yelling like a maniac doesn't accomplish anything of substance for his team. It makes the commentators remark about what an intense coach he is. He yelled a lot this weekend. Sure did a lot of good... :rolleyes:

    OK maybe Gruden is a bad example, but what about a coach like Les Miles? He shows the right amount at the right times it seems like to me. Its almost like a balance between Pelini and Hawkins... BUt its just not Hawks personality... Once the recruits keep rollin in and the freshmen get their experience it's going to be a glorious puzzle Mr. Hawk has put together and his emotion on the sideline will be almost irrelevent... patience is key!!

    Bellacek (or however you spell that guy's name) doesn't yell and has a few more rings than Gruden. Everybody has their own style.

    Probably somewhere between Hawk and Gruden....some form of passion should work...

    Screw Gruden....maybe something more like Pete Carroll....pretty funny stuff about how he got Will Farrell (Captain Compete) to play a prank on his team...I'd prolly bust my gut if I saw Will Farrell prancing around the football field in a speedo

    Hawk's got passion, sometimes I could do without his P.C. bullsh*t in the media, but I think he realizes he is on a slippery slope to start going ballistic on a bunch of Frosh and Soph... Next year, the attitude can begin to change because as you get into the system another year, the excuses dwindle.
