VIDEO: Allen talks about what he’s seen thus far and running with the team

Coach Allen fields questions from the media after Thursday’s spring practice.


  1. No one comments to these video posts ’cause no one can hear the darn questions except the person being interviewed. Does the person who posts these even play it back before putting it up here? Speak into the microphone, Mr. Interviewer! Duh. Complete waste of time for everyone. Let Allen get back to work and stop bothering him if this is the result.

    1. davis I could not agree more. I do not remember the last time I tried to even listen to 1 of these. Besides I read much faster than thoughts can be spoken. But no doubt machines are replacing labor because it is less work than writing. In my time I’ve seen lots loaf their way out of a job.

  2. I don’t have a problem with a video accompanying a story. If I want to spend the time with the video (rare) it’s cool that the guys imbedded it.

    But, I certainly appreciate the sentiment regarding posting a video INSTEAD of an article.

  3. Yeah, HC, most people do and that’s why people invented writing (or at least one of the reasons). I hadn’t bothered to listen to any of these in quite some time and made the same gripe way back then. Loafing is right. ANY SCOOP POOH-BAHS PAYING ATTENTION? Stop wasting coaches’ time, players’ time, and your staff’s time with these. NO ONE IS VIEWING!!!

    1. Hey Davis,
      If you don’t want to watch, don’t. Personally, I’d rather read a story than watch a press conference, too, but not everybody feels that way. It’s not wasting the coaches’ or players’ time, because these are press conferences they’re having anyway. We just have somebody holding a camera to record it.

  4. …and therein lies the genesis of the post by davis …modern day journalism…the volume of the audio is not a consideration…view it or not just don’t complain…somebody else’s fault providing for video over writing…
    No Q why print media is in trouble today.
    davis, you are now “Davis”.
