Originally posted by nolemrs54: Great post Nolewr. I've wondered about the Mat Drills since DD's passing myself. Do you know if any of those changes were mandated in the court proceedings when his family sued the university that would keep the athletic dept. from allowing any changes from being made back to the way it was? I agree though that we do need to get back to a much "tougher and meaner" attitude but would not want to put the players health in jeopardy to do it.
I don't know for sure. I do know that some of the changes (such as allowing water) were pretty much forced (though the coaching staff most certainly was't going to protest anything at that point), but I don't know from where.
