The key in coaching is what you produce. What do you get, then what do you do with them. If you get 47 400m men and make them into 45 guys then you did your job…If you get 45 guys and they run 45.5 then your a great coach recruiting wise.
The reason I put Savannah State down was I talked to the head coach twice on the phone and was very friendly and cared about his kids. I drove 5 hours from Tampa to take a look at the track since I wanted to have a training camp there (and I had a girlfriend that was moving back there as well.:P) and it seemed cool. The track is nothing special, nothing like LSU or North Carolina but it is soft for good training. I am not a fan of the barbed wire near the brick walls…but If I was a millionare, I would resurface the track just because I like the area. While I have never met Ted, his ideas of low volume and strength training that complements the speed seem to work well after looking at Nationals and USATF nationals.
