McElwain has always had a sense of humor and yesterday was no exception. Pretty good read, right here.
Pete Roussel is a valuable resource for coaches, athletic directors, NFL front-office personnel, and college football enthusiasts. A former college football coach, Roussel shares insight on coaches 365 days a year and is recognized as the most trusted expert on coaching transactions.
Total discipline! Lovely thing to see when it comes to these college kids.
Will be pulling for the rams this season
excellent quote right here ...
Meanwhile, the Rams are just a few days into August camp, but it's obvious McElwain is incorporating elements of Nick Saban's philosophy.
Offensive coordinator Dave Baldwin said, "The biggest is difference is demanding that it happens. You're going to be there at this time. This is what you're going to do. This is the outfit that you're going to wear. There is no individual treatment in there."
"If you had to go 10 yards, you go 10 yards. If you had to go down on the squat a certain distance, you go down on it. It's demanding the little things, the discipline that that Alabama program had. There is no individual in that program until the playmaker has it in his hands. He's an individual runner with 11 other guys or a tackler. There is no individual. They've demanded everything from the color of the shirts, to the shorts, to the socks, to no bandanas. Everything is the same. We're all one. I think those little things like demanding it has made the difference."
Thanks for the link, I'm a Ram's fan this year!
Coach Mac inherited a tough job with the Rams, but with his knowledge and experience he gained while at Alabama will be invaluable obviously. While it will be a tough road, I have every confidence he will be successful.

I would love for Coach Mac to cut his teeth at a school like CSU and maybe step up to a bigger program and be groomed to be a candidate at Alabama when the time is right. If he can implement the Saban system successfully and continues to be a winner, it could happen.
I just hope the CSU administration has enough patience to allow Coach Mac to implement HIS "process". I believe he could do some good things there if given the time.
Good luck to Coach Mac and the Rams this year.
I think Coach Mac bought in.....
Coach Mc is going to make CSU a winning team...don't think it'll be his last stop.
