So in your esteemed opinion
having Bergstrom, a lightly recruited 2 star athlete, testing better in all of the important and 'non-important' drills at the combine than Reynolds, a highly recruited 4 star athlete, has absolutely NOTHING to do with Omer's work with the BYU team ? This is all on Matt in your opinion ?

Whether a drill in 'important' or not at the combine, wouldn't you want to test the best in every one ? Matt Kalil evidently didn't think the bench and 40 were insignificant. He was outstanding in both. Oh, and did I mention that Kalil is projected to be a top 5 pick ? Wow, I wonder how that happened with him obviously focusing on the bench and 40 so much.

I've never said that the bench and 40 drills are the end all, be all at the combine for any athlete but they do indicate strength, speed, and athleticism. It's a shame that BYU's strength and conditioning program doesn't prepare BYU's athletes better. My point in all this is that if BYU expects to be a top 25 program year-in and year-out, they must have a top 25 caliber strength and conditioning program. If they want to be innovative on the field, they have to be innovative in the weight room. It all starts there.

Enough of the bench/40 debate ... what is you overall opinion of Omer, the entire strength and conditioning program, and what needs to be fixed ?
