Great series and cool that Settle was there too. Also it's amazing how much better he is at interviews now. I remember going to post practice interviews his freshman year and he barely ever gave more than two words as an answer.

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Next episode.

Kind of strange it's only 5 minutes long, most of these have been 20+. I understand if Cornelson is not very comfortable doing interviews, but seems like it would've been a good chance for him to show his personality more to the fanbase since he's not been the most popular member of the staff.

i too, am surprised that our offensive coordinator/athletic department does not take random internet strangers' opinions in to consideration when it comes to interview length

Just found it weird that it was ~15 minutes shorter than the next shortest interview. I think the football team/athletic department has done a great job lately of putting out more content, I would assume part of that is designed to connect more to the fanbase, and seeing as how Cornelson has been the target of a lot of criticism, fair or not, I felt like he could've benefited a lot from a longer interview. I don't personally care, it mainly stood out to me because it was so much shorter from the other "Take it to the House" interviews.

I guess Laser got him to agree to 5 minutes, so he got 5 minutes.

Would folks be nicer if he had gotten 10?

Maybe, maybe not, but I think you can see with how Fuente's more public persona has been received, that our fans want to like the coaches. It may be that part of the problem is they just don't feel connected to them. Is all of this reading way too much into a dumb offseason video, yes probably haha, but there's not much else going on at the moment. Will winning cure any public perception issues, yes, but can the program also take other steps to win over the fanbase, absolutely. I guess my whole point is, I think Corn could've benefited from a longer video, so I was disappointed it was only 5 minutes

This is the epitome of the can't win mentality. First, he doesn't do interviews and people ask him to do them and now it's too short, because of some seeming precedent set by other interviews.

I'm glad he did the interview and I think the thought here is that the OC isn't about having a PR rep especially with benign criticisms such as too short of an interview.

I don't think using other interviews of the same title and format as a basis for comparison is unreasonable. I'm happy Corn did the interview too, my critique is because I was hoping to learn more about him and get to see his personality a little bit, and 5 minutes just isn't very much to go off of.

It's totally fine for Corn to not like interviews, and the football team doesn't have to produce any content to engage the fanbase. I just think they should be striving to do the best they can.

Edmunds brothers this week.

Next week is going to be a great one with a former player now coach

The Edmund bros.

Gotta love 'em.

Thanks for posting. JHam impressed me with his poise. I look forward to his success. To early to get fully dipped in HAM??!!

I love these videos, they give me the warm fuzzies for our program. I hope recruits watch them, too!
