    I remember the days of practices at St. Thomas University. Those were some tough SOB's that could handle the 3 a days with the heat.

    I'd concur with that.

    It's an overall difference in society.

    The players today have it too easy.

    No they don't. They have the things we would've had if the common sense would've existed.

    Yeah, but we only play two reg season games in a dome this year. Both on Sept.

    If you're really a tough guy you accomplish the task presented to you, regardless of some heat or humidity.

    I can't imagine humping around Fort Hood with all the bull**** my kid, who is an infantryman there now does.
    His body armor is 35 pounds...And that's BEFORE the ruck that carries more **** than I ever dreamed of goes on.
    Funny how guys can accomplish that, no matter where or when they come from.

    Yea at 46 I still outhump 80 percent of the infantry soldiers but jesus everything in me is saying hey dude u can just quit now lol.
    We humped all around whitesands last summer and they had to actually look at doing some things different because the IOTV with a full ruck sack just doesnt work,
    4 Miles seemed like 20. Heart is what separates the quitters in army, football and life.

    Every generation likes to say how much harder everything was but smarter is always the way to do things.
    I cant imagine doing 37 miles in like 50 hours then fighting like they did in Battaan.
    Hell did the Battaan death march 26 miles with 35 pounds in sack and was like jesus how did they do it I was done an I had to fire a weapon afterwards would not have been effective over a 100 meters lol
    When Death Smiles Upon You the Infantryman smiles back

    WVdolphan "Ireland gets it.
    And those who also get it, know that Ireland gets it. Those who are clueless are still concerned about cornfed and the running game"

    WVDOLPHAN "The last thing this team should be worried about is the OC(offensive corn). When you add it all up, its really a pretty solid OC"
