Very well stated.
Personally, I'm impressed with the ability to move that weight despite the lack of technique, form, use of straps, etc. I would not coach or recommend such technique. But's that just me and I'm not a SC coach. And never professed to be; although I'm very learned in SC and have over 25 of weight training under my belt.
All the best,

If you get a negative response then the gloves can come off.
We should be posting links like this one of Tommy Moffitt of LSU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIqB_...eature=related
this was found just to the right of the maryland video... didn't take much work to get there.
Patrick: college recreation centers exist to serve the student population... they will supply whatever the students demand... right now students demand a 24 hour fitness model. Get a couple dozen students to demand better equipment and you might get some good stuff to use.
Derek: people/kids will listen to you if you have expert knowledge and have to ability to communicate/relate/teach it to them. Your ability to physically perform at an elite level will only hold thier attention for maybe a day. I've never seen anyone ask Coach Burgener to do a clean before they would listen to him.
