Not all college programs have a long history of elite defense, toughness and rebounding as their calling card. Huggins used to bring in football pads and Cronin had Rehfeldt. And we were pretty elite at what Rehfeldt could help with.

While he was here we were an elite D with 3 star talent and a lot of that is due to monster factory. He didnít want to leave Cincinnati but who knows how often he was approached

definitely not a huge deal. A S&C is way more about how much emphasis the head coach places in it than the S&C coach themselves. Huggins was a huge believer in the strength program, Cronin was pretty big into it too. Brannen was more about conditioning than strength. Miller I'm not sure but assume places a large emphasis on strength based on their style of play.

I'm guessing no one on here can name another S&C coach not affiliated with UC. And the elite defense was not because of the S&C coach. Sure, may have helped some, but again, it really isn't rocket science.

Most of the success is on the coach and players but you take any and every advantage you can get. If not we would have hired CBJís staff and called it a day because those positions arenít important.

My guess is we were begging Mike R to come back with the style Wes wants to play. But itís a PR move...yah right?
