Brains function about 30% better when a person is happy. I think this is why BB Coach Self and others in BB constantly talk about being confident is important in playing well.
I think this is also important part of Baseball Hitting.
I well remember past coach weis with how he didn't like the product KU Football was putting on field, and he didn't like the quality of KU's players. Compare that, to Football Head Coach Les Miles, 'I like My Team', repeatedly being positive about his players, their performance, and his expectations in the future. The O-Line's Brains are probably working overtime, dreaming about performance, and improvement, and technique. I think assistant coaches and players have blank sheet regarding improvement, because Head Coach Les Miles has already taken responsibility for any other result. This is Great!!

I believe that this is less an opinion regarding the football team, and more a personal
disclosure of excuses/pessimism, etc. I think the improvement in the KU Football team over the last few years is notable. Failure to win a certain quotable number of games, is one last measure of improvement. One would like the number of wins, to have suddenly brought some measure of relief, but that isn't the way this is going to have happened. It is rather a grinding, sweating, hope rendering, slogging, heart wrenching, tedious improvement, that yields more wins.

Perhaps, we should compare a recruits verbal commitment. What is the commitment strength of a University's Offer? I remember that a/we may over recruit a position or class, or find a Hakeem Adeniji is available and push a recruit to new year, or shirt color, to take the scholarship and give it to our new guy.

Please be cognizant of the excessive use of the pronoun, 'He' , without the coordinating antecedent. I am not physically there, and it is often difficult to follow whom you are talking about.

He's just nervous about being photo'd with the adidas' logo?!

Love the comments about the O-Line. I would like to get insight into the intelligence of recruiting of the O-linemen. I know that other coaches have eluded to this being a
favorable characteristic of O-Linemen, and Coach Mangino would say that he doubted he would be allowed into the Educational Halls of some of his players' classrooms.

When he alluded to 'oppertunities and finding a way', I thought he was referring to finding Zion a Job.

Would be possible to get interview with Jim Ryun and Bryce Hoppel?
