We all know the BCS causes some problems. It does not help college coaches who seem to be getting more dedicated to the money and not the coaching. Since when do college coaches and winning not go hand-in-hand as being the most important aspect?
Some coaches would argue it still is the most important idea, which has led to recruiting violations and fans losing hope for their school’s chance to “win.”
College coaches have lost their way, which is getting to the point of pathetic.
Mike Leach, in the words of ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown, “C’mon, man!” He probably thought, “So I threw a kid in the closet. Big deal. So I considered letting my injured players do meaningless ‘motherly’ chores in a dark closet. As long as I am a winner, it is OK, right?”
Brian Kelly, “C’mon, man!” Your team, the Cincinnati Bearcats, was undefeated and you skip out of Ohio to take the job at Notre Dame where academics are actually more important than athletics. Then you continue saying you would have stayed in Cincinnati if you had a chance to play for a national championship? Please.
Jim Leavitt, “C’mon, man!” The rumor is you apparently hit your players. Not like a slap-on-the-butt hit your players, but a slap-in-the-face hit your players. You build the program of South Florida from the ground and all you can do is smack around the players who you brought there to make you a coaching star? You should be slapped in the face.
Pete Carroll, “C’mon, man!” You bring Southern California to be the historic football program we’ve come to know and love (and hate) so you can take the job with the Seattle Seahawks as head coach and general manager just so you can have more money?
But that’s what this is all about. Greed.
Lane Kiffin, “C’mon, boy!” I can’t call you a man for all the sleazy things you do. You went from the crappy Oakland Raiders job to Tennessee where you talked smack without the back (up) and escaped your school to run to the USC position Pete Carroll left open. Does anyone remember this guy has been under investigation by the NCAA for at least three years? If anyone believes you after all of this, Carroll, just take their money from the corner where you work and wait for the next helpless man to drive by and ask them if they want to have a good time.
These college football coaches seem to only go where colleges pay big bucks. There are, however, some coaches who stick to their roots like Texas’ Mack Brown and Penn State’s Joe Paterno. But the aforementioned individuals are ruining those reputations with incompetent bickering about deserving more money. Everyone knows good and well these coaches are richer than those people who are working at a job they don’t like.
College coaches, teach the players. You’re not in the pros. You’re with the Average Joes and it is time you started acting like it.
