Charlie Weis was not just talking when he said practices were going to be more physical this year. Take a look at the video below from today’s practice and it is easy to see the difference from past years. The Irish are hitting HARD and tempers are flaring. There was a little scuffle that broke out and in the words of Bill Parcels from that Coors Light commercial – that’s a good thing, not a bad thing.
Note: To our friends from WeAreSC.com who are rather unimpressed with ND’s practice – you are seeing about 5 minutes of the whole practice and “#74” returning punts was RT Sam Young. It was a joke, but I guess not as funny as telling your team that one of your players was getting arrested – that would just be hilarious.
