Quotes from Coach Fisher on the Indoor Practice Faciltiy:
"I base all things off winning. All my decisions are not out of want. It's out of want to win and things we need to win. And this is the biggest thing that has handicapped us as far as weather conditions."
"We go out and practice in rain. We do it on purpose because you are going to have a wet ball. We practice in the rain because you're going to be in situations where you have to handle it. But the biggest issue we have is we're in the lightning capitol of the world and we get it every doggone day. It'll be perfectly sunny, beautiful, and if there is lightning anywhere within the surrounding area you have to (leave the practice field). It's an NCAA rule."
"It's not like the old days in the 1980s and 90s where you didn't have to come off the field. We practiced until the lightning hit right beside you and then you jumped over and did it on a new spot. You moved the drill. Those days are over. We are not allowed to do it."
In reference to time management:
"In the summer when (strength coach) Vic is running those guys in the offseason program, if the players decide they want to do 7 on 7 passing drills on their own, half the time they can't. Their day and night class schedule and meal times are set, and then they can't practice because that afternoon shower from 3 to 6 hits and if there is a lightning warning it is illegal for them to go out."
"The amount of time you lose in preparation, not just in the fall, but in your year-round development is unbelievable."
Quotes from Andy Miller on the Indoor Practice Faciltiy:
"We want our elite coaches to recruit elite athletes and our job is to provide them with elite facilities where they can push themselves to achieve their dreams."
"We have a big investment in football, in our stadium, in our coaches and in our elite athletes, and we need for them to have all the tools they need to compete against the best programs in the nation. The margin for error is razor thin in this competitive arena and victory often comes down to execution."
