Pyne for QB 2022!
- Reaction score
I haven't seen too much criticism of the viral video and I'm relieved. Anyone who played HS football, basketball and likely any other sport has been "spoken to" like that. Let alone D1 football and the pressure that Tommy Rees is currently under.
I never took it as "wow, that coach has anger issues or he really doesn't like me." I take it as someone who is passionate about the game and has high expectations of me and my teammates to deliver.
I didn’t notice any & thought it was funny that Mike Frank thought there was some big outrage from some fans. If there was, it was the minority. He loves to act like all fans never played competitive sports & b/c he’s witnessed some coaches yelling at players at some of the ND practices he attended in the past, that we fans just wouldn’t understand.
I think the majority of fans agreed that Tommy’s message was spot on & right on time. I would hope & expect that the entire staff lit into the entire team in that same manner after the Marshall Embarrassment.
Only outrage is that NBC showed it during the broadcast. Can't imagine Jack was happy about that. Opens the program up to negative PR.
Yeah, most of the Irish fans I saw commenting on the clip on Twitter seemed to enjoy the moment and applaud the passion. The only people wagging their fingers were opposing fans and I don't give two shits what they think. I'm wearing my Purple Face BK "Don't Poke the Bear!" shirt right now, so I'm all in favor of some heated motivation if a player responds to it positively Obviously it worked for Drew and he asked the coaches to be hard on him last week.
