So how about south carolina and gardner-webb?
For South Carolina:
LoJo. He's really a great coach. The facilities/campus are amazing (I've done my visit) but the progressions aren't as high as other schools (Tennessee, Arkansas, etc.). But my big question for USC (yes they are the official usc, they were founded 80 yrs before southern cal. don't get me started) is mainly does anyone know lojo's coaching philosiphy? Yes Elliot Haynie is a monster but he cleared 17'4 i believe in his years at gardner-webb. But today i read an article about the meet they were at this weekend where LoJo was quoted as saying "but we've really made some good changes to his form" I'm hoping these aren't majorly drastic changes.
So my big question for anyone who may know is:What is LoJo's coaching philosiphy?
(I may try to go up there and meet with him when i go on a 2nd visit later)
Coach Wood is doing great things, look at what she's done with elliot. She has already told me she could give me a spot on the team now, but I'm just not as sold on them. When i got to talking with her, she said she doesn't believe the free takeoff is effective
But her results kind of speak for themselves. The facilities aren't anywhere near the level of any other D1 school, in the conference alone there are better facilites out there. But I've met the vaulters and they seem to really like coach wood and the other members. Everybody is really friendly there.
Any help or input?
