“You can lift the world, but if you can’t get from point A to point B before your opponent gets there it doesn’t matter.”

For a man who has been famously silent with the media since being put in charge of Georgia’s strength and conditioning program, Joe Tereshinski sure had a lot to say today.

There’s much to unpack, but this is the part I found most interesting:

On Armstrong:

–An “outside the box” hire, according to Tereshinski, who called Armstrong a person “who understands speed, quickness, agility, who can teach it.” Armstrong was founder and head performance specialist at VAST Sports Performance in Tampa,Fla.

Armstrong said his hire is unusual that Georgia players will have days set aside for him to work with players on speed.

“If we have success and we’re able to do what I hope we can do,” Tereshinski said, “I think they’ll be a lot of questions `What did we do?’ You may see something like this go on elsewhere. That’s pretty much how we are in this business.”

You read that right.  Georgia’s S&C man thinks he’s gone cutting edge and made a move that may be copied elsewhere.  I don’t know enough about his business to question his analysis, but I’m certainly intrigued.

    Worked with Reggie Bush and Chris Johnson of the NFL. Also a guy named Peyton Manning. I hear they are pretty good.

    Maybe he can teach them how to exit a Fing Scooter at 45mph and not end up looking like Petrino.
