Kyle Flood is not Greg Schiano; the men have very different personal and coaching styles. We knew that already, but Coach Flood's latest caper further cements that observation.
After the first double session of training camp, Kyle Flood surprised his team by turning the lights down, and the beats up for the team's rejuvenating ice-bath session, in what players and coaches quickly dubbed "Club Ice".
Here are the pics and videos that exploded on Twitter last night, bolstering Coach Flood's reputation as a true "player's coach".

Recruiting Coordinator Phil Galiano posted some of the best pictures of the event:

Kyle Flood did not miss out on the fun, plunging into the icy water himself. That is, uh, un-Schiano-like.
Current Players loved the surprise:
National College Football Media Took Notice
At Least One Former Knight was a tad jealous . . .
And a Knight Newcomer, A Veteran of Another Program and Coaching Staff, had High Praise for Flood
