Jude, Fran didn't get McGee his shot in the NFL; that was all on Sherman.

There are 2 starters on the tean that went to the same high school. They often both rep their hometown because of this.

I am sure both coaches contributed to him being there since they are talked to by the NFL teams ahead of time. Even then what could Sherman possibly say about him? He hardly played under him. Crazy...

It's so nice to sit on the sideline and still earn a paycheck right?

JudeAggie, do you really think that Stephen would have been drafted if he played QB in Fran's system in his Sr. year? I think not.

anyone I know that knows McGee said that it was all a front about him and Fran McGee was trying to save face for the program and the University

Ok, I am going to clear this up. I played under Fran for two years and I never once had an issue the way he treated players. If you were injured you went to the corner to work out with the Strength and Conditioning coaches. They made you work, you didn’t go in a shed, and if you were sick you stayed in the training room. Say if your arm was hurt you ran during practice, or if you leg was hurt you did all upper body training until you could run again. This was all managed by the training staff and the strength coaches. This was done because some people decided that they couldn’t hack it all the time and would fake injuries. Coaches made the corner a place that you didn’t want to go unless you were actually hurt. I think some players didn’t like Fran because he expected a lot out of them and they would never put out the work. This is where I think Fran could’ve done better; he was not a great motivator when it came to young men that needed something different to push them like I believe Sherman has. I liked the guy because I enjoyed the hard work and I liked to push myself without any external motivation. You look at any business and if you are manager or leader you have to find a way to motivate everyone up and down the ladder in different ways. Fran was not good at adapting his leadership techniques to different types of people and because of this some people took advantage of him. If you have any questions please respond and I will gladly give you any answer I can.

Nevdodge, how much of the motivation for individuals falls on the head coach vs. coordinators/position coaches?

Wow! Would this be the same Dodge that smoked Melton on the 4th and inches near the goal line? That was an unbelievable play, not to mention the pick that sealed the deal. My favorite player during that two year span, and a linebacker that brought it every game.

My question: did you see Fran demean any players and was there a general dislike for him by the players?

Mark Dodge was different than any other player on the team. He was older than anybody else on the team, and he had come from the military. It makes sense that he would have a different opinion of Fran than the other guys who played for him.

There were some players that were tough and some that were soft. The soft players are bitter.
