Trimane Goddard, not just a friend of the program but a long time friend of Michael Felder makes his debut on the podcast to talk about college football training camp. The former All-American and 1st team All-ACC safety who shared the national lead in interceptions in 2008 stops in to hit all the "finer" points of training camp.
This isn't a Tar Heel party folks as we get into just the general nature of training camp and talk everything from the way you feel when you pull into the dorms for the first time to debating whether two-a-days or one-a-days are better. The answer to that question from a players' perspective may surprise you because of the amount of behind the scenes aspects that are associated with one-a-day practice sessions.
We'll get into the install portion of camp that truly is tougher than any conditioning test as you spend each day trying to learn the new packages, all the while not forgetting what was installed the day before. Talking the frustration of install leads to the overall camp frustration that often culminates in fights out on the practice field and the ribbing and "hazing" that goes on when 100 guys are stuck on campus without anyone else around.
However, camp isn't all bad as we wrap up on the most positive notes one experiences during camp; Meet "insert your team here" Day! A truly fun day/evening where you get to interact with fans, sign autographs, take photographs and talk to the people who come to watch you play on Saturdays.
