BOBCAT DAILY NOTEBOOK

The full version of HERO is here.
STACK DAYS: Bobcat trainer Brent Vigen likes the progress he saw in his team’s fifth training session, saying the groundwork was laid during the summer months. “Move on another day, rack up another day. I continue to praise our level of conditioning, the ability to look quite like the last five minutes to the team’s first five minutes. That’s the scorer, we’re still running the football, we don’t let our conditioning level take over. “
INSTALLATION: Bobcat trainer Brent Vigen said this week is the most intensive time for the installation of the team’s offensive and defensive patterns that it faces during the preseason. “You usually get a few things in the first couple of days, your base, and then this week is the week it really builds up on its own. Then at the end of this week, we’re pretty much done with our setup. . “
EXECUTION: MSU Coach Brent Vigen these periods of heavy installation of schema can affect physical performance, but if the mental approach remains constant, it is satisfied. “As we go through this week, we’re adding a lot of stuff every day, whether it’s more offense, more defense, more situations,” he said. “You’re getting some things for the first time, so execution is a work in progress, that’s just the nature of this week, but I love our attention to detail and our effort for sure.”
WELL EARTHED: While measuring success in preschool is a tricky thing, Vigen enjoys the play he saw on both sides at the line of scrimmage in the running game. “It’s bilateral, isn’t it, our ability to run football and our ability to stop the race,” he said. “You can certainly see where the movement or the lack of movement from an offensive point of view versus defense, (assess) what that looks like. Does our back see what it’s supposed to see? I think. that we’re one step ahead of where we were in the spring when it comes to our discipline on our trails and our ball safety and that sort of thing. But we haven’t touched on yet, we have nothing like that. It ultimately becomes your biggest measure, when there is a result in each particular round. But I think the good thing right now is that we are at full strength on both sides. good. We haven’t always had that luxury in the spring. It’s give-and-take, not a one-sided affair. Offensive makes a few plays, defense makes a few plays, and with a good team it’s usually the mark when you walk through fall camp. It’s a back and forth. “
