Former LSU and MLB pitcher Louis Coleman joins Matt to recap LSU’s series win over Indiana. What can be realistically be taken from the opening weekend?
“I think there is somethings you can pull, but for the most part it’s getting the feet wet,” Coleman said. “There’s a lot of jitters so it’s really about just getting going.”
Cole Henry was dominant on Friday night, but saw his pitch count balloon to 71 through 4 innings. Is that something that can become a consistent problem with a strikeout pitcher?
“You always want a guy to try and get outs in three pitches or less so they can go deep in the ballgame,” Coleman said. “You want a guy on the mound who can strike guys out because when it’s 1st and 3rd and nobody out you need a punchout.”
Former LSU sprinter and current trainer at IMG Academy Mo Wells joins the Matt to talk traing former LSU players for the NFL Combine. Wells talks his training process.
“It’s a six day process. These guys are here for most of the day,” Wells said. “Plenty of sprints, position work, nutrition which is extremely important. It’s a lot to fit into a week.”
Is it Wells’ job to turn the players into track guys considering the importance of the 40 yard dash at the combine?
“No in a sense it’s not really about making them into track guys,” Wells said. “My job is to take away an physiological disadvantages they may have when they are running, and meet them in the middle.”
Today is the 10 year anniversary of the launch of AFR. Matt reflects on 10 years of the show.
