If Batson couldn't put more than 235 lbs worth of good weight on Vic in five years yet another group can add 10+ lbs of good weight in two months I don't see it as an endorsement of Batson's abilities. The bench press numbers are good but then the knock on Joey has generally been a focus on weight lifting as opposed to functional strength.
I don't think this is going to end the S&C debate.
Beasley will go top 10. This pick alone should put to rest the bs argument by coots that our coaches can't develop talent. Beasley was not what he is today before getting coached up and going through our strength and conditioning program. Good luck tomorrow
Batson may not have some of those benefits that you listed, but he does have one huge thing - 4 years. I'm not necessarily in the boat that wants him gone, but after our O Linemen weighed in waaaaay undersized, I think that some of his practices need to be reevaluated. Here is a good, in-depth post concerning the intricacies of S&C: http://bit.ly/18dYK5h I've always been a huge fan of a good S&C program, it's how less talented programs such as TCU, Boise, KSU, etc, compete with the big boys. Ours may not be terrible, but if there is any way that it can be improved, I'm all for it.
Re: FB Update: Vic Beasley impressive on the Bench Press

Dang hes got long arms too, which makes it harder...shorter armed dudes usually do much better on bench press... didnt realize Beasley was that strong, helps explain his dominance for sure. Gotta love seeing Vic and Grady at the top
