While there is some truth to what you say... that's not the entire story. We have all seen too many success stories from truly deplorable situations to say that circumstances alone is the reason for poor educational output.
IMHO, throwing money at education is not the answer. The education pro...

[quote]I can't think of a time when a program was struggling in mediocrity while TWO former coaches, both having won national championships at that program, are now active at other schools.
That is really tough. I guess it would be even tougher if one or both of them won it again where they are n...

I grew up in an area just down the road (5 miles). His high school team was one of the best small high school teams in Alabama history - the 1972 Colbert County Indians. That team had Ozzie Newsome, Phil...

I'm not too worried about the "attendance championship" totals. By the time the end of the season rolls around, we'll have three extra games compared to Tennessee. :nana:...

Run. Your. Offense.
But do it with backups, reserves, third string, whatever - now you're in player development mode. As a coach, how could you possibly ask players to give 100% in practice, and not give them a chance to play their best in the 4th quarter of a game even if they didn't start?...
