Prohaska was very good but was not as directly involved as some has asserted. The person who oversees the weight program at MD is as good as any in preparing the back end of strength and conditioning protocol for most teams at MD and likely will be more involved in football but if you were on campus in the weight room you would see him and the assistant are the ones running the show in the weight room for football for the last 2 seasons. The only time I see Prohaska was at games though I am sure he was designing protocols to follow.
What I noticed in some ways was a feeder for some athletes who could afford his private training.

Just saying, in the grand scheme of things before Prohaska was even heard of...

None of the sprinters in the study (including the likes of Walter Dix, Maurice Greene, Tyson Gay, etc...) improved on their top time run at age 19 by more than 6% at any point in their careers.
So with all those extra years of training with the top coaches in the world, at the top facilities money can buy, and with the help of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs, no sprinter could even shed 6% off their fastest time as a teenager. Make of that what you will.
