    We're so good at Tuesday games. Hopefully Big Rick can schedule a few games on Tuesday in the future.

    It was an interesting comment from HCMM about players taking it upon themselves to want to re-run a play or drill to make sure everyone was doing it right. Instead of just trying to get through the practice. He saw it as turning a corner with focus & commitment.

    May not translate to this Saturday, but it's important.

    We've been dominating practice since 2006. Can't wait for next Tuesday.

    I know I started this thread in jest, but it is good to hear some actual specifics put to the usual generic (and worthless, as has been proven) phrase of "good practice"

    How is the petition to move our games to Tuesday coming along?


    Poor MM doesn't realize we've heard all this BS before.

    If a head coach is happy about practice focus...that is a good thing...means things are maybe turning around with the players who probably dreaded practice under the last coaching staff

    Our wins may not be against high-quality opponents, but they are enough to have the team dreaming of a bowl game. Its a good sign that they are using that as motivation to want to get better

    We did hear this from Hawkins quite a bit but I don't remember Hawkins ever providing a explanation as to why he thought it was a good practice

    Here is the full quote. I think it is a fairly reasonable thing to say in context. Hawkins had us winning the MNC every Tuesday. MM seems to keep a realistic perspective on things despite it being the "best practice all year".

    Sure he did. They were getting their horns out and bringing their lunch pails.

    We should be ok as long as there isn't a bus ride to the stadium.

    Since they believe in rest and plenty of sleep. We need to go bang pots and pans, pull fire alarms, have the band practice in the lobby and disrupt their 8 hour slumber Friday night.

    Oh wait we tried that in the past, it didn't help.

    Just the media looking for anything to report on. I venture to say every coach in America has made this comment at least once a year.

    For instance, Sonny Dykes prior to the OSU game.

    This is pure Hawk Talk. Are we due for another epic beatdown this w/e?

    No it's not, it's generic coach talk. Except with this comment, MacIntyre actually stated why he believed it was a great practice, something that Hawkins never did other than the lunch pails and that bull****.

    Has your girlfriend ever gotten mad at you for something her last boyfriend did, and you were forced to explain how stupid she was? You guys are that girlfriend.
