Interesting article on Stanford's Conditioning methods - Monday, December 30, 2013 11:01 PM

Turley’s impact speaks as much to availability as ability. The coaches recruit speed and size and talent. He believes the best players, the ones most on the field, who sustain the most collisions, also carry the most injury risk. His first priority is to keep them on the field.

From 2006, the year before Turley arrived on the Farm, as Stanford’s campus is known, through last season, the number of games missed because of injury on the two-deep roster dropped by 87 percent. In 2012, only two Cardinal players required season-ending or postseason surgical repair; this year, only one.

Not one mention of Barwis, so it can't be worth reading.

The reason people question you is because EVERY post that comes from you is that way. We are all just as frustrated as you are and this season has been far more than disappointing. Your hijacking every single thread to make nonsensical posts is annoying. Sometimes your posts are thorough and insightful, but it's rare. Usually just another jab at the coaching staff as if we haven't heard it from you before. You are far worse than BHF during the RR years.

No, sir, I'm a Michigan observer until the people running the football program start to prove that they actually give a sh!t.
 
It's good to read about functional strength.  I was never at the level of most of these college athletes, but I did lift a bunch in my late teens and throughout my 20s w/ no concern for functional strength at all.  Getting into combat sports over the last 4 years, I've realized what a poor approach that was and how much damage I did to my body in those early years.  My hips are a mess and, as the piece read, so much of athletic performance is tied to the hips.

If you KNOW ANYTHING about Barwis.  I went to clinics Barwis gave. Barwis could have most definitely been the focus piece of that article.  I would even go on to say Barwis went even further in the nutritional dept.  I read the article 1st then scrolled through the comments.  That article had MIKE BARWIS regimen ALL over it.

Hmmm...

I was being sarcastic and poking fun at people on the board who made Barwis out to be some mythical Chuck Norris-type figure who would win games for Michigan from the weightroom.

I honestly didn't think I'd need to be so explicit that it was a joke, but there you have it.

Exactly.  I'm done investing my weekends into this football program-been doing it too long as it is and you can damn sure bet I will not be a homer and play rah-rah guy like others.  That's just high RPM, low IQ sh**.  When they actually give a damn, so will I.

I think Mike Barwis was one of the better things about Coach Rodriguez's program.  He really was.  Sorry if the defense came out wrong.  Michigan people are good people and I'm not going to be one of the guys who circle the wagons and then fire inside instead of out.
 
 
DAMNIT  what in the HELL has happened to us.  This losing just permeates everything and we start sniping on each other instead of our opponents.
