    The team is literally taking part in a boot camp right now.

    Have any of you seen the pics posted on their Facebook page? Coach has begun what will hopefully turn in to a tradition. Everyone, coaches and staff included is going through everything from endurance tests to team exercise to water training. They took a group photo at the end of the day, and most of them looked completely gassed.

    Don't be surprised if we see a decidedly tougher team, mentally and physically, this season!

    BamaMike05 posted a Twitter video from the experience in the roster thread. It's a good one to check out. I'm really proud of the effort these young men are putting in. I truly hope it pays off for them in a big way this season. I'm definitely pulling for this team!

    They featured some of the vids on the local news last night. They were going at it pretty hard, but they were all smiling.

    CNO was right beside his players going though the boot camp.

    I noticed that and doing so TOTALLY gains the players respect.

    We absolutely hit a home run when we hired him...

    Good catch Tidesq, the whole coaching staff took part as well. Really sets a great prescient imo. I don't know how this al is going to turn out for CNO but I admire the effort he's putting into building not only a successful team but also a successful program.

    Here are videos from Day two and three of the retreat/camp:

    It's essentially saying to any big-time recruit: "We'd love to have you, but check your ego at the door and get in the mud with us if you pick Bama."

    He hasn't done anything I haven't been impressed with so far.

    A great leader never asks someone to do something they wouldn’t or haven’t done themselves. A great leader leads by example. I had many questions about this hire, but I have been impressed with everything so far that he has done...and after seeing these videos, I am convinced that we have found a great leader for this team. CNO will lead this program to greatness.
