That's only one day and it's only a few players (Hines has said it's working well for him and I can't argue with that). We'll see how it plays out. I don't see it as disrespect but as a coaching style that may be biting them in the butt every December. Let's hope so. I don't think any team playing us this month is taking us lightly.

But it they are, that's fine with me, too.

I enjoyed reading TNewman41's posts, also. Welcome aboard, Cowboy!

Concede the non-conference game to a superior opponent on their turf and focus on your own conference and division games?

Just my 2 cents-hopefully, this is just a case where a few of the vets were merely getting a day's rest.
Guess pac-man wanted some rest too. At least he got to wear his pj's.

I can only hope that he gives ALL his players the entire week off. That would be saweet!

Absolutely hilarious picture!!

As far as the rest goes, I think it is actually a very good idea. Too be honest, I'd be a little less worried about the game if they DID workout every day.

No biggie to me, but the Cowgirls better be ready for the cold and snow and of course getting hit very often.

I think that's fine, we should do that sometimes too.
