Great write up Rusty.

During last year's second half meltdowns I never could put my finger on why we were having them. But, after his hiring, I remember Jackson saying those meltdowns were due to a lack of conditioning and he knew how to fix it.

So, this season I've watched every single down and always kept his words in the back of my mind. And there is no question he was 100% right about last year's problems and he was 100% right that he knew how to fix it.

Thanks Coach Jackson and Gig'em.

I attribute our lack of injuries this year to both coach Jackson and luck. Reguardless, it is part of our late season success.

Great article, thank you Larry Jackson! You deserve as much praise as anyone for this past season.

As my football coach used to say, "championships are won in the offseason!"

Love this quote below. I hate when a guy hurts his arm and lays there like he cannot walk. Get the the hell off the field and don't give them the satisfaction they hurt you.

"I just tell my staff that I want to make sure that it isnít our guys who are lying down on the field. I also tell our guys that if you are lying down on the field, and I think you are fine, then I will come get you myself. You donít want that. It is a pride thing. It is an attitude thing. You donít ever want to let another player think he got the best of you. If you are really hurt, that is fine and there is nothing that you can do about it. But we arenít going to play that game."

Great Coach and article! However, I worry that the article divulges too much of LJ's philosophy and what could/should be insider info to other programs.

Unless other teams all know this already then why give them an open book into the mind of what I think is one of the best S&C coaches in the business.

Awesome.

Bulltastic - I was thinking the same thing.

We need to lock Larry up for a long time.

Thank God.
I was doing my Masters degree in 91-94 and I remember never, ever losing a game at Kyle.
It was soul-wrenching to see Fran bring in the one thing Aggies never do - quit - as a core value. I was in the student section during the OU game in 92 when KS & RC dialed up a defeat against #1.

Along with the physical toughness, this staff is bringing back mental toughness - a quality missing from our program for too long.
KS, KK, and JFF have the offense rolling, & Snyder ought to get mention for an award for what he's done with the D this year.

Sounds to me like Coach Jackson is the absolute best man to bring back the WC - and we may start seeing that next season.
Gig 'Em!

Lots of folks are getting accolades for this season's success. The most unsung of these may be Coach Jackson. Had his conditioning program been in place here last year, the season's record would have undoubtedly been much better. We had the talent; we were not in condition. This year, it's the other teams whose tongues are hanging out in the second half. Nice job, coach!! As we said in the Army, Hooowah!!

SWAG!

I can't help but think this coaching staff will bring a Natty home!

2 or 3 of our 1st rd juniors stay for their senior year and I think we run the table next year.

Terrific article - really shows the importance of building a strong foundation for our team. As well as gave a glimps of the Spirit of Aggieland that can only be told from one who lived it.

He and Snyder both get huge props for the Bama game -- imagine how it will be when we're as deep as Bama with Coach J's conditioning.
