If there is one thing we should all love about Bill Stewart, it's that he wears his heart on his sleeve. He doesn't use the phrase, "so on and so forth and things of that nature" to gobble up time and say something without saying anything. There's nothing cryptic about the words he uses. If he thinks you're a son of a bitch, he's going to tell you. Success aside, it's refreshing considering what the last seven years were like. And there's no reason to believe that success won't continue.
Stewart has been mostly all rainbows and unicorns during fall camp so far. But that ended yesterday.
Drawing Stewart’s ire was the defense’s inability to shed blockers and consistently get ball carriers on the ground.
“The defense had better stop reading their press clippings because they got knocked around today,” Stewart said....
“At the end of the day we did some down-ups and some up-downs; we bonded as brothers and everyone clapped hands and everyone left and was mad at Mister Rogers,” Stewart said. “You need 33 people. You need 11 on offense and 11 on defense and 11 on special teams. The rest of them are going to do exactly what we say, when we say it, without asking why we say it. They will be coached by us, and they will play. Isn’t that a great democracy we have here in sunny Morgantown, West Virginia?”
If anyone wants to help me on a down-up or an up-down, please chime in. I'm only practiced in the in-out-in-out. (Probably NSFW)
I've completely lost my train of thought after watching that.....oh yeah, Bill Stewart....democracy. Fears put to rest that he was an old softy. College football world domination continuing as planned.
