How do you know what the coaches do, and dont, teach / coach?
because they admitted it in several pressers. ward said many times that sos will NOT ALLOW THEM TO TACKLE FULL SPEED. how can you teach tackling at half speed. then there is the physical part of it. if you aren't use to getting hit hard, you panic when you finally are. these players NEED a hellishly hard practice, where they hit, hit, hit and then hit. many coaches have said many times, that they want their practices to be so physically draining, that the games appear to be easy by comparison. i believe in that as well. this is a physical game. you can't cupcake around it.
