Stoops and the team go to the pool and jump around

Screen shot 2013-08-15 at 3.17.31 PM
That is giving me some mean flashbacks to swim team cross training.

No football practice today, but that doesn’t mean the team’s taking a day off. This morning, Mark Stoops and the gang went to the pool to do some recovery sessions with high-performance guru Erik Korem:

This year, there may have been less ice cream and more water aerobics, but they still found time to have fun:

Which reminds me, tomorrow is the year anniversary of Stephen Duff’s epic dive:

Sorry Bud, Duff’s still the champ.

    No, joker gets bashed because the team (especially the offense) was awful last year, and that is an understatement.

    Joker was a joke of a coach. A predictable offense that even the fans knew what was going to happen. He also failed due to Minter’s laughable defensive scheme that was overly complicated and produced no results. Between the two, an offense should be the more complicated. Defenses is reactionary and offense should be setting the action. Not the other way around. That is why the Joker regime did not fair well.

    O Joker done this with the team, and he got bashed it was what are they doing at the pool. Now St.Stoop does the same thing it’s the greatest thing since ice cream poop.

    I’m starting to wonder if this Joker vs Stoops thing has an underlying message of hue.

    #7-Impressive use of the word hue. Otherwise your post needs work. Please rewrite and post on some other board. Bye.

    Its hard to play defense when the offense consistently goes 3 and out in almost every series. In some games, the D was not as bad as the O. The D just wore down faster due to the amount of minutes they had to play. The O was completely inept, all the while the D had to suffer because of it.

    Offense under Joker was merely a matter of personnel. When he had the players his offense rolled. Folks love to trot out the pitiful stats from the lean seasons under Joker’s offense with zero appreciation for the stellar numbers his offense put up in other years. Certainly he and the staff were responsible for both sets of numbers not just one or the other. Joker is a more than competent offensive coach but he and Brooks couldn’t recruit enough of the types of kids needed to run the offense consistently. Certainly he failed as head coach but to hear fans tell it the man couldn’t leave his house without getting lost. He’s an alum, a former player and a coach who bled blue. Why we have to make everything all or nothing, black or white, good or evil is beyond me. Good grief the man tried his best and failed but he certainly has accomplished more on a larger scale than almost anyone who posts here could ever think to accomplish. Just let it go and cheer on Stoops and Co.

    3 & 7 – Did you read the article? Last year it was a fun goof off day at the pool which I’m sure was refreshing in the midst of training camp and had value. This year it was a planned activity with specific exercises designed to help the team recover physically from their difficult 2-a-day schedule directed by high performance guru Eric Korem. How many times do you see people in a swimming pool all facing the same direction doing the same thing when they are just goofing off?
