Because all of the players will get more reps.

just makes sense from a coaching aspect. you can't watch that many players at one time and have them show you what they've got.

only makes sense., to get a close look at the players....he also stated that it would only be for part of spring practice

I think it is a great way of getting everyone practicing and not just standing around watching. The coaches get a better chance of developing players.

Again, each plaayer will get a better chance to be seen by the coaching staff. This is how walk-ons get noticed.

Not sure if it matters if we like it or not...he is the coach. With that said, I do like the his reasoning behind it.

I thought Osborne run a format where he would have multiple stations similar to what Riley is trying to do

Players need reps and coaching and this will give it to them. More buy in more motivation.

I remember when Coach Osborne took over as AD, and watched one of Bill Callahan's practices. He said, he saw a bunch of guys just standing around just watching. Hint hint Bill, that's not good. No surprise he fired Callahan.

There is not one D 1 program who has tried this and was successful. It makes coaches do too much after hours evaluation to the point that they are just remember big highlights on players instead of the whole body of work. Additionally the questions on these polls are very weak, I actually get angry each time you have one posted

I don't see why they don't use the same basic practice routine as Osborne did. NE has many more players at practice than virtually anyone else due to our walk on program. No one "stood around" much at Osborne's practices. He has made the point in his books that the large number of players due to walkons was a significant advantage in that they could have multiple stations going at the same time. By splitting up into Team Red and Team white a bunch of starters are not going to get any practice time with the other starters that they will actually be on the field with this fall.

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
