SEC Week 3 Sked

Ole Miss lost their kicker on an extra point. It killed them late. South Carolina's stud back broke his leg. Tennessee left 15 points on the field. LSU isn't bad, Mississippi State was just that good. Auburn and A&M still stink offensively. It's hard to tell about Georgia. Vanderbilt played a solid defensive game. Kentucky is strong but not flashy. There literally are no words for Missouri. And Florida is mediocre at best. It's still hard to know if Arkansas was that bad, or T.C.U. was good.

My wife and I agreed, that nationally speaking, this has been the worst, most boring, opening of college football that we can remember. I chalk it up to the dumbing down of everything in this country. By that what I'm saying is that the players lack a fundamental overall knowledge of the game so they don't think through plays like they once did. They lack fundamental playing skills. And all of this stems from a collection of coaches that don't know how to coach, meaning they don't know how to teach and develop players, but rather just know how to recruit.

Those coaches making the biggest impact and winning the most still know how to teach skills. And the teams where players don't quit on plays are now in the minority. I see a lot of teams that have big bodies just standing around. It's pathetic.

No one wants to bake in the oven...everyone wants to get popped in the microwave and convince people they are just as good without the investment in time

That's prophetic really. I frequently think that mankind's solution will be to nuke the carcinogens rather than to work to make it better.
