My crow? What crow? Even your link contradicts what you said happened on here. So WTF happened? Did anything really happen? Does it really matter?
Did Leonard really need to be "disrespected" to go off against that STM defense? Really? Why did it take being disrespected to dominate an opponent? If this episode really happened is it in Leonard or St Aug's best interest to put it in the media? Aug decisively beat a team by 26 pts on their own field, why did Crutch feel the need to try to embarrass them in the media as well? Vindictiveness? Is it some sort of warning to other teams? Seems very petty to me
Wouldn't the story have read better for Crutch, Aug and Leonard if it was "STM is a great program and we knew we had to play our best to win. The team didn't play their best but Leonard was the difference in the game. We know we will have to play better than we did to beat a tough team like Karr and with Leonard on our side we know we always have a great chance to win"
You know, a little class.
Instead you have an article that implies Aug has underachieved, had a disappointing season even though they are a 7-3 team, has struggled with believing in their coaches and scheme and needed an alleged insult to motivate the best RB in the state to dominate an opponent in a playoff game.
What "crow" am I supposed to be eating again?
FTR I got a golden opportunity to meet and spend some time with Coach Griff years ago. It was a great experience for me. He is the epitome of grace and class and he will always represent St Aug Athletics to me. Something tells me griff would not think very highly of crutch's methods, antics or representation of St Aug in the public and in the media. It is very telling to me that an Aug guy brought his team to STM last year and won with class, but the guy who now coaches Aug is classless.
But it really doesn't matter does it?
I hope victor doesn't put his "nuts in their faces" or anyone's face for that matter. And I still consider myself a distant fan of St Aug.
