    I have been dealing with this for the first time. I have a hard time concentrating and giving good feedback with speakers blasting right behind me. Damn I'm old, but do you think it adds to or detracts from a practice? I'm now considering it during warm ups, etc., but not during drills.

    Do you believe at the collegiate level it actually helps recruiting?

    I think it does nothing for recruiting (or maybe very little) but I think coaches do it to try to increase the energy level.

    The couple of practices I was at MikeMac was signing along to what ever was on, pretty funny to hear Zac Brown at a football practice, and to watch coach sign along. In the spring at least down on the field it wasnt hard to hear the coaches over what ever was playing and the position guys were doing most of the practice direction with HC in more of an overview and management role.

    Makes sense to me. Lots of research about the effect of music on mood, energy, etc. If it results in a better practice, I'm all for it.

    Makes some sense in terms of the energy, mood, etc. Also the games aren't played in a silent environment. Might help to practice in an environment with distractions to tune out.

    Makes me wonder what music Hawkins and Embree were playing.

    Our brains are amazing. Give it a couple of weeks and even your old brain will figure out how to tune out the music (just like crowd noise). I think noise at practice helps.

    Wasn't this board collectively all over Embree for allowing music to be played at practice? I seem to remember a thread about how bad their practices were, as evidenced by the fact that actually were blaring music.

    I could be wrong. I was wrong once. It felt funny.

    Would you rather go to work at Dunder Mifflin or a place like Pixar? I think most would pick the latter. The fact is kids have to buy into environment. Oregon and some others got this started, now it will be expected, like multiple uni's, etc, to compete for upper echelon kids.

    Do you work out? Have you tried doing it without music? It's unpossible.

    I work out 5 to 6 days a week and can't stand having an iPod playing on headphones.

    There is typically music in the background. I'll admit, it would be too quiet without it. I was just thinking along the lines of headphones.

    If we win, it's great. If not, root of a culture problem.
