I think a lot of that rep comes from the work under Butch Davis. Whether or not you think he knew of what was going on here with the academic scandals, he should have if he didn't. So I think it was part of his style/philosophy that led to slack guys. I think with the change over to Larry Fedora a lot of that will disappear. He seems to have got his stuff together and the teams (we have tended to play much better in the second half after adjustments / whatever he does in the locker room).
I think that he has a good motor. Not at the JJ Watt level (but I'm not sure anyone is at that level), but I think he puts in more than Quiton Coples, who disappointed last year.
