Why would anyone even mention some named Briles? Daddy is sleaze-bag #1A
I don’t want Leach for the same reason.
My main thing is hire a good man that is also a good coach.
Most of our head coaches over the years HAVE been good men. And I was always proud of that. I want to win…badly…but not at the cost of dignity. If you cheat or embarrass your institution by being a jerk what’s the point of winning? The Razorbacks aren’t just a win or loss instrument. Those kids and their coaches also represent a university, state and fanbase.
Sports is NOT strictly about winning. And to anyone that says its STRICTLY about winning…please don’t work with kids. Ever.
If it were just eliminate rules and let everyone cheat and steal ad libitum.
In general, sports is not strictly about winning. But in collegiate sports, it mostly is. The coach is making millions (but the kid can’t make a dime off his likeness).
There is a difference in saying it is all about winning when you talk collegiate sports and when you talk about Little League.
We bitch and complain about safe spaces and microaggressions and being triggered, but once someone complains about a college athlete’s free throw shooting, field goal kicking, or ability to get a bunt down, we get all bent out of shape.
I don’t know the answer. I cringed as my brother-in-law booed when Cole Hedlund bricked two chip shot FGs v TCU, but I also cringe when I see people get up in arms when someone says something they don’t like. Seems like we want to pick and choose when it suits our cause.
Of course, I could be making a mountain out of a molehill here.
