Fueling the fire 2: Controlling the flames

I must first recognize those readers who were offended or even lost as to the purpose of this article’s prerequisite. In the case of both articles it is imperative that you analyze them in their entirety. In clearing the air, I iterate that the stereotypes, facts, thoughts & realities stated were not your shortcomings but areas in which we, as Aggies, have room for improvement. I come to you again in the same manner as before, but enlightened by the anger, confusion, misunderstanding and appreciation from the student body with regards to my initial publication. For this reason, I bring to you possible solutions to the problems that we see, but beware again…you may be slightly disturbed:

A few words from those movin’ on

Being of sound mind and body, I hereby leave my books and studies to everyone left at A&T. To my li’l cuz/ sista Sheena Monroe, I leave my ability to select the easiest professors for each course. To DUBBS I leave you the ability to handle one more semester. To li’l sista Monica I leave my drive and ability to prioritize. To my professors, advisors, mentors, and especially Ms. Gray, I leave my deepest gratitude for all of your guidance and support. And finally to everybody else I leave my “KILLA DRESS GAME,” from thugged-out to grown. Last but not least AGGIE PRIDE!MJAndrews

In my line of work, I regularly hear things that make me raise my eyebrows.

Q&A with Coach Fobbs

Darrick Ignasiak: One of your players has said that the practices are fun. How have you made your practices fun?Lee Fobbs: It is a game. Sometimes we as coaches and fans, we tend to forget that at this level. In my mind, in this coaching at this level, the interest level has to be exciting to them. It can’t be drudgery to them. Hey Darrick, I am a former player myself. I know what its like when I played and I haven’t forgotten.Ignasiak: This year you will be offensive coordinator and head coach. How will you combine both of those roles?Fobbs: When I’m sitting here behind this desk, it is paperwork. Through the experiences that I’ve had, you have to make the transition to do that and my mind is always locked in on the X’s and O’s. The administration part I’ve delegated a lot of duties to the assistant coaches.Ignasiak: Your staff has been praised so far by your players, what do you have to say about thatFobbs: When I was sitting here putting this staff together, I was looking for good people, family people. Second thing: outstanding teachers. I did not want to recycle the coaching fraternity. I was looking for guys that I knew a lot about that I could stand and talk about and I know it will be done the same way as I talk. Over the years you are as strong as the people around you. I think I am just blessed to have these guys.Ignasiak: What do you think of the facilities at A&T?Fobbs: The (facilities) are great. I am like the Chancellor that’s leaving here. I am still shooting for the sky and get better and better. I think we can kind of help (improving facilities) by winning football games. Not that I am putting pressure on myself, but hey that’s the game. That’s the way it is. That’s part of it. Our facilities are great, but I want them better.Ignasiak: Offensive Lineman Derek Sutton said that you work out with them on the field and in the weight room, how do you get the mentality to do that?Fobbs: I’d love to give everything to be out there playing. I just love the game. But I still like, at my age to work out a little bit. I’ll get in there and kids will be working out and I’ll lift a little bit. I love to walk and jog. To me the time that I have with myself, walking, jogging and lifting. It clears my mind. It helps me think and a play caller has to have that time for within himself. People just can’t be constantly talking to him. He has to play the game within his mind and you have to play it over and over.

I’LL HOLLA…

The end of the year is here and my time at “The A&T Register” has come to an end after two years. I would like to thank the Department of Journalism & Mass Communications for their support and allowing me to serve the university. I’ve seen changes made in our athletic programs to ensure growth. We have come a long way since I arrived here in 2002, with new buildings as the campus is headed toward the right direction. To the members off the newspaper staff, I love you guys!!! We all have the type of bond that will carry into life after this college thing is over. Erica has fussed me out so much this year, but I love that girl to death. Mike McCray is a cool dude… pause, that has always been there when I needed a photo or an article. Oh yeah, I’ll get that PS2 game back to you before graduation homie!!! I swear that Chad Roberts is more of a father figure than a friend, I can talk to him about anything and feel better afterwards. If I left anyone out, I apologize, but this is my farewell and I’m greatful for the experience while at A&T.
