Here is what I would say at my initial meeting with the OL: "Guys,I`m excited to be your coach! I know that we have some talented linemen here. But,I haven`t seen that talent develop into a dominating offensive line. I can tell you this...from this day forward our focus is going to be on developing a line that dominates every time they walk on the field. What that requires is that each of you plays with a nasty attitude and plays until the whistle. That is my expectation and that is what it will take for you to play. If that fits what you want,then great. If not,then I would suggest you look at other options for your college future. As of today,there are no OL starters. Each of you must show me that you should start by your effort and productivity. I don`t care whether you are a freshman or a senior. The players that perform will start and play.
I have talked with coach Beamer. As a way to emphasize VT`s dominating offensive line,we have developed these helmet stickers. They are orange with a maroon P in the center. After each game`s film review,I will hand out stickers for each pancake block a player has in a game. You will put them on the back of your helmet so that the RBs see them when they line up and they will know who up front is getting the job done.
In summary,we WILL be a dominating offensive line and we start now. Let`s get to work!"

Do it in reverse. Tell them their helmets will be covered at the start of the season in pink stickers with a purple letter "P" in them. And with each good play they make, they can remove one of the stickers to reveal their actual helmet. And when you look at their helmets, you'll know who is a football player and who is a....

All good stuff, but these two lines are a must!

"Boys, when I watch your video from last year, I see little difference between that and Susie right here. Now Susie here is doing it right, you however, weren't."
Good speech coach!
Threaten to give 'em a "downvote" if they don't perform....that oughta do the trick.
Boys, any of you post on VTScoop? Well, if you don't get the job done blocking, you are going to. I'll report weekly on how many blocks you missed and ask them guys to downvote you accordingly. Don't test me on this, I'm just crazy enough to do it.
Three cheers for Coach Lou...good post Mr Holtz
I agree 100%, even though most of you guys know who I am
I'm going to the titty bar! and Jasper's drinks are on me!
