I'm going to say that yes it is...no offense to Rock, he seems like a great guy and a good S&C coach.
Just doesn't seem to mold guys into the image that CJP is after. Rock seems to be more leaned toward the faster, more agile conditioning. Whereas it looks like Pruitt is wanting the bigger, stand up and nail you in the mouth type player.
Hopefully he can get his guy and that guy sticks around for more than a season or two...that has been a problem in the past.

Not a problem. Pruitt is putting his team together his way. Gillespie fits. Everyone else doesn't. Personally, I want to see purged everything possible about the 2017 nightmare. Holdovers don't thrill me. It's too bad we can't have bigger signing classes to help with the roster flip. Way ready to close the book on the Butch jones era.
