It didn’t take long to start talking up strength and conditioning.
“We’re not doing mat drills,” Richt said. “Some people say, ‘Why aren’t you doing mat drills?’ Well, you can ask the boys why we’re not doing mat drills, because they’re getting a taste of that just about every day with ‘Coach T’ and his strength staff. It’s already paying off.”
Richt mentioned that two members of the 2011 signing class who enrolled this semester, wide receiver Chris Conley and quarterback Christian LeMay, already have gained seven and 10 pounds, respectively, through their work in the strength program.
Granted, that’s not as sunny-eyed as the stuff we used to hear out of Van Halanger, but honestly, I wish the coaches would just keep this to themselves at least until we could see the improvement with our own eyes. Although I have to admit I like hearing the players griping about the new regimen.
