    We've seen this before. Is it a conditioning thing? Is it correctable?

    Peterson has a history of it but it's also something the training staff doesn't seem to be on top of.

    Tiga that explains PP but LSU had 4 Defensive players at one time cramping on the sidelines according to the announcers.

    Why is it so many players?

    One of the announcers said it wasn't humidity and was most likely from being "amped up" from such a big game.

    They had to head a lot of shyt all week, they went out with a chip on their shoulder and weren't leaving without this one for their coach.

    Its a genetic thing I had the same problem in high school. Cramps just are part of the equation.

    Not in every case though. Coaching kids I've seen it in remote cases too. Kids don't drink enough. We'd always get a mom to bring a melon cut up. They don't like to drink but they'll eat melon and keep hydrated but you have to start at least the day before.

    Last year we had an RB in HS who starting cramping. His mom came ask me what she could do, I told her it was too late that night except for an iv- which we didn't have.

    I think these guys give so much effort on each play they wear out. Not a conditioning problem just going 120% from the first whistle. Try it some time and no matter what the leval of conditioning you can drive through yhay wall and cramp up.
    IMHO it is worth it. Also a good thing we play so many.

    It seemed to only be affecting us. Were the Fla players not amped up for the game? C.U.M. took a lot of sh!t from their fans too and they were coming off a loss, so you know they were playing hard.
