Dang. Some pretty big time names on their like Simon and Montgomery. Not sure how Kwon got in the doghouse so quick. And he's injured.

Saw this a few months ago
That picture is from a while back. Not sure exactly how long, but I remember that picture being posted back during the regular season.

Oh ok. Kwon was a starter until he tore his ACL. Seemed odd.
I didn't realize that, it just showed up on my twitter feed a second ago.
Either way, it is interesting seeing some of the players that don't appear to care about their team.
Do wha? Kwon was starting on D? Dam.
Interesting though. That might answer why the freak hasn't taken over like expected.

Started briefly and looked good. Much better 4-3 fit.
A lot of extremely talented prospects on that list...
I wonder if that is real. The language seems a little too harsh to display publically like that. I am certainly not a coach but I manage talented employees and I would question if that is effective way to motivate those kids. I would think not, but I don't know as I don't deal with extremely talented football players in the weight room...haha.

Yea, its an old pic but showing up on twitter today for some reason
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
Here's an article about it from Nov. 17
Ten LSU football players have at least one enemy in the schoolThe following athletes miss workouts and always have an excuse.
Looks legit to me. That seems about on par with every S&C I've known. They aren't shy ones and will call you out. And no I don't think that's the best approach for all players. People are different and different things motivate them. That would embarrass some and make them want to get their name off that list but to others it would have the opposite effect and push them farther away.
When I played in college I was skinny when I first came in and the S&C called me stickman. I weighed about 200 at 6"6. He told me when I hit 225 he would call me branch and at 250 he would call me redwood. I got rs of course but the next year I weighed in at 224 at the beginning of camp in august. At the end of camp I weighed 232. I was one of just a few that gained weight during camp. I was hitting my stride physically and was getting ripped. I got my branch nickname from the coach and was happy with it. I won the starting job at buck. Three days before the first game we were in shells doing run throughs at 50% speed. Some walk on fat ass at center that might have been 5'5 thought he was trying out for the AA squad and hit me while I was trailing a sweep to the opposite side of me. I was basically jogging and my knee wasn't fully extended and just like that I tore my acl and meniscus and was done for the year. I wanted to kill that pos believe me becuase we werent even supposed to be hitting. But after my surgery I weighed like 205 again. Yup you guessed it, the S&C coach started calling me stickman again right away. Not the motivation I needed at the moment and it pissed me off cuz he thought it was funny in a way that he could call me that again. And there was nothing I could do about it cuz I was hurt. So motivation is important but how and when you do it is just as important if not more. You can lose kids real easy If they feel like a coach doesn't have their back.
There S&C coach Moffit has always done this. Pretty freakin awesome if you ask me and motivates the players to show up and bust it. I would like to point out that just bc you see names on that list it doesn't necessarily mean that they don't care or don't try. It probably means they missed a workout that week..
It is/was real. Here is a tweet from Tommy Moffitt last night:
@TommyMoffitt: The pic from office window is old news. These guys had all missed a class. Great kids and hard workers. #tigertough #LSU
Def don't agree with it. Call them out if you want but don't negatively affect their future playing career (their job)
