Well the "internet guy" is on the same side as Saban, Meyer, Les Miles... you know, the coaches that have won the last national championships. Saban has moved some practices indoors due to heat, but he'll have them practice in the same heat sometimes as well.

We have been practicing indoors. The idea is to get out of the sun. The coaches think it is safer I guess. They could be wrong though. They are coaches not doctors.

The OSU is a smooth 0-9 against the SEC. I don't know Meatchickens tab, but they are 1-1 against UGA, both games being played in Ann Arbor. They wouldn't play us in Athens. Better schedule App State.

Don't know exactly how hot/humid is was there, but it does get nastier in the summer once in a while than some people would think.

I just hope they have a plan to make up the practice, from what I understand the NCAA only allows a certain number of hours to practice.

osu is 7-11 all time vs SEC. But only 1 of those wins has been since 1950. and the other 6 wins are vs UK and Vandy between 1890-1940.

20-5-1 against the current members of the SEC.

Michigan is 10-0-1 against Vandy, and 10-5 against the rest of the SEC.

Most of the games were Bowl games (with the exception of Vandy) In Bowl games Michigan is 7-3 against the SEC.

The only teams Michigan has played from the SEC in non-Bowl games are Vandy, South Carolina (before they joined the SEC), UGA and UK. Of the 11 games against Vandy (there was a tie), they played 8 of them at home, playing Vandy in Nashville in 1907, 1913, and 1922. They did play South Carolina in Columbia in 85 after playing them in Ann Arbor in 1980. The two games against UGA and the one game against UK were all in Ann Arbor.

True, just thought it was important to point out that half of the wins were against Vandy and 8 of the wins were 1923 and earlier.

They haven't played a regular season game against an SEC school at their stadium since 1922 - remember South Carolina wasn't in the SEC at the time of their game in 1985.

I think you're missing the point. Conditioning wins games. A team that can go full throttle in serious heat, will only have an easier time in cooler weather. It's also about practicing through adversity. The heat can weigh on you mentally and physically... by practicing through it, I think you learn a lot about being mentally tough... which helps in big games.

joehogjoe

I think heat/humidity have more of a negative effect on those not acclimatized, see former OSU lineman Korey Stringer and the DB from Northwestern that both passed during summer conditioning.

Better to be safe and make up the practice later.

Aaaaaannd how many of those games will be against the SEC? Apparently you are missing the point.

And Ohio State has one of the easiest schedules I've seen. Of course they're going to get a lot of wins. I didn't say they won't be properly conditioned. I don't think they're conditioning is on par with ours though, where we have to compete with the heat on a regular basis.

I don't really think canceling one workout two weeks before the season starts because of the heat has any factor on conditioning in December/January. That's just silly.

First off, the original post was somewhat in jest, but hey, let's discuss!

It's not about one practice... or one day (where do ya'll even come up that?!). It's about our geographic region. Our teams are forced to battle through scorching heat on a REGULAR basis. I never said it's the ONLY reason we are the best conference in the country (and you're talking about silly?!) but I do think it helps our conditioning ALL YEAR. Also, WTF does December and January have to do with it? You guys act like the football season is only played one month of the year (and you're talking about silly?!) But hey, If you really want to talk about January, we can...

I seem to recall LSU stomping Ohio State in January when OSU had the "#1 defense in the country". I seem to recall Florida absolutely throttling OSU in January, and I'm pretty sure that OSU is 0-9 against the SEC in bowl games. Even after the game a Florida player said he thought 4 or 5 SEC teams could have stomped OSU.

Still, most importantly I was playing around. But I'm serious when I say southern heat helps our conditioning year round. It can get too hot for anyone, but the heat that OSU called their practice off for would be a day in the park for plenty of SEC teams. Also, I've heard players say how much easier is it is to play in cooler weather NUMEROUS times. That tells me a lot. Not to mention, Saban just addressed this recently saying that battling through heat at practices helps develop mental toughness on the playing field. But that's just silly. WTF does he know.

08-17-2010, 06:52 PM
If anything Ohio State is at a disadvantage not because of early conditioning but the Big 10 that is 12 finishes and then has to wait longer than the SEC teams to play in the mythical BCS NC game.

This has definitely taken over the majority of posters on the board and SEC fans in general. Its like widely being recognized as the best conference in the country just isn't good enough. I feel like some pople think the SEC should the 9th division in the NFL and that Texas, Oklahoma, USC, Ohio State, Penn State, FSU, Miami, Nebraska, USC, Michigan and all the other historic super powers might as well not show up on the same field the next 20 years.

*I do realize some fans are in jest and just having fun with it, but there are also a ton that when the SEC actually loses a game against a fairly comparable opponent the excuses just come rolling out. The SEC is loaded and everyone knows it, no need for excuses.

Why do you think Army Rangers and Navy Seals train in the most absurd conditions possible, be it hot or cold? It is all about learning to fight your mind. The tougher the conditions you train in the more mentally strong you become.

Well, that'll be ending soon with the addition of a Big Ten championship game. However, I think some in the media have made this a bigger issue than what it really is.

Positives and negatives could be assumed. Positive being a team has a longer time to heal and should be closer to 100% come bowl time.

It didn't have a negative effect when Ohio State beat Miami in 03 for the NC - but did in 07 when they lost to Florida??? It's just BS to give the media something to talk about.

And you know whats going to happen say if Ohio state was to beat an SEC team this year right? Even if it was the SEC champ the ones your talking about will call it a fluke, or it was a down year in the SEC and instead of 0-9 they'll say 1-9.

Thanks for reminding me LOL...that game was a whoopin' for the ages.


I don't know how frequent this type of thing is (i.e. cancelling practices due to heat), so who knows...I can't recall Michigan ever cancelling practice like that. As someone who has lived in Alabama for several years now, I've grown accustomed to 100+ degree (and not just standing around in the heat, mind you, but I've had summer jobs that put me outside in that daggum heat)...the same can't be said for my fellow Michigan students. They freak out when it reaches 90, which, while amusing, is understandable I suppose. Miami players looking like they were playing on the North Pole in the bowl game this past year against Wisconsin (upper 40s , in freakin' ORLANDO) is Exhibit A for the other side of this weather issue.

At the end of the day, though, this isn't that big of a deal.
