Offensive Line Talk
I do think our S&C can be comparable to what it was under Kiffin. Also guys like Davidson just didnít look in great shape when he was in.†
jgf2017 saidThe lack of a continual S&C program in my opinion hurt the offensive line the most. By the end of the seasons under Kiffin the OL was a machine.

Our current S&C coach is one of the best young ones in college football without a doubt right now.
Just because he is not doing crazy stuff on the sideline doesn't mean he does not put together a good strength program.
Just remember teams only had like a month of any real strength programing last season.
When I first noticed our S&C was out of this world was that WKU game when we came back and won going away in 2017. Beating a really good Marshall team was another sign. And of course trouncing North Texas and Akron.
I remember watching the teams doing pre game warmups when we beat North Texas in the championship games. And I kind of could tell the North Texas players knew we were going to crush them.
Then of course 2019 and the S&C hitting on all cylinders as the season progressed.
One sign of a great S&C program is when thereís a really good pass protecting offensive line. That was on display in 2019.
I think by far the main reason Kiffin succeeded here was because of the S&C program. The team looked in amazing shape as the 2017 season progressed and stayed that way. Kiffin is a great offensive mind but it was brute strength of the players making the difference.
A lot of times people think guys are bad coaches like Frost at Nebraska for example. But if heís at a disadvantage S&C wise it makes a big difference.†
