Greg Schiano Fired Up!August 28th, 2013
Apparently, Bucs fans are not the only ones irritable as the new season is just days away. It seems so too is Bucs commander Greg Schiano.
Per the Twitter feed of Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, who is watching a scant early 30-minute window of practice open to the fourth estate today, Schiano is all over his players to pick up the pace, do things the right way and yes, in so many words, toes on the line.
@RCummingsTBO: Oh, boy is Bucs coach Greg Schiano ever on his game at practice today. We’re seeing and hearing circa 2012 kind of stuff. … Schiano told one player who couldn’t get his blocking technique right: “You’ll find himself back in South Florida” if you can’t get it. … Schiano later yelled at a player during a tackling circuit to “quit running out of bounds.” We haven’t seen this kind of fire in a while.
Cummings also noted Schiano provided strong reinforcement for good plays, patting guys on the helmet and offering loud encouragement.
For a Bucs team that has looked listless through three preseason games, maybe it was time for Schiano to break out the big stick?
Joe just loves this kind of coaching. Get your job done or get your arse back to South Florida!
