Urban: 'We have a mantra. Grade every day and never coach effort'

Earlier in the week, following their first spring practice, Arizona's Rich Rodriguez explained that his staff harps on effort constantly to ensure that guys are giving the maximum amount of effort on every snap. During the day yesterday we talked to a handful of coaches that share that same outlook.

Urban Meyer and Ohio State opened up their spring practices yesterday, and when talking about practice, Urban shared a much different philosophy.

"We have a big saying around here. We don't coach effort. We're going to coach fundamentals, we're going to coach specifics, but by now they better understand four to six seconds (of effort)."

Interesting take from two different coaches who are both entering their second year with their program.

Meyer also explains in the clip that they grade players practice performance each day.
