Will intense week of practice pay off Saturday?

“Change takes time. Change is uncomfortable for people. If you don’t like how things are, you gotta change. Well change is uncomfortable. However you want to change is uncomfortable because you’re kind of used to this way…and I can’t do it how I’m used to doing it.”

It’s with this understanding that Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen is taking his team through a significantly tougher week of practice following a 27-16 loss to the Kentucky Wildcats; and for that matter each week of practice hereafter.

Will intense week of practice pay off Saturday?

General Question....

I'm going to concede that Savage did a great job getting these guys from flab to fab! the question I have is this, are our guys just undersized in general?

Average Weight at Georgia:
  • The average DB weight 200 (Florida is 190)
  • The average LB weight 240 (Florida is 233)
  • The average DL weight 289 (Florida is 282)
---Go Gators!

When you run the statistics in a t-test, there is no statistically significant difference between any of those three groups. Whatever difference exists between them is likely due to chance.

Then why do they look so much smaller?

I didn't make any claims about appearances. I ran the numbers and shared them with you. Process that information as you see fit.

UGA has no one slaton or concliff size or weight so that's wrong! Everyone looks bigger than last year and more tone.... FACTS!

It took our coaches and players all the practices we had in the spring and in Aug and Sept to realize we aren't physical enough?

I think they knew. Or at least suspected. But it is only games that can really push shortcomings into the light.

It was more of a rhetorical question. Our guys just look smaller, maybe it is just the mind telling that because I think that....

But doesn't 99 (Polite) look like a DB out there?

Oh, I agree. I can't wait until we get back to being the dominant physical teams like back in the day. I just think it is going to take 3 years. It hurts to see us at a physical disadvantage.

From a statistical view point, there is no way to draw a conclusion. From an observer standpoint, seeing our guys smaller than UGAs is terrible. Even former players admitted that.
