Sal Alosi was hired as UCLA football’s Strength and Conditioning Coach as part of Jim Mora’s vaunted coaching staff back in January. Alosi, as I’m sure you’ve heard, was involved in the New York Jets’ TripGate in 2010 which saw the Jets dismiss him from the team while fining him a good chunk of change. When he was hired, word on the street was that players loved Alosi and that his regimens worked incredibly well.
It’s good to hear our players talking all positive and whatnot (although it isn’t the first time). Dudes sound like they’re enjoying all the workouts — a little odd, no? — and they seem to be having fun. Positive talk so early in the off-season should be approached skeptically, because talk is cheap. (I can go to the Ralph’s and buy a pound of talk for $1.99, but I digress.)
Whatever works, dude. I really could care less if Alosi was an idiot in 2010. He’s a Bruin in 2012 and if he’s helping to keep our squad in top physical condition, then it’s fine by me.
That said, the players are sore as hell (so they say) and you can’t help but love the quote, “Greatness hurts.”
So true. I’m really great at blogging — or so I think — that my fingers are aching right now. I’m seriously on that level, you guys.
