Published continually since 1998 -it was a Blog before there was such a word! Presenting news and views - often outrageous, always thought-provoking - on a wide variety of topics, usually related in some way to coaching, to leadership, to citizenship. Items cover coaching, football, football history, education, parenting, kids, other sports, leadership, patriotism - even, sometimes, my Double Wing!
flagFRIDAY,  JULY 31,  2015-   “If your football coach doesn’t win, it doesn’t matter how good a businessman you are.”   Bump Elliott, former Iowa AD, on the first priority of a major college AD

*********** We’re right in the middle of our annual three-day mid-summer mini-camp at North Beach, designed to (1) bridge the gap between spring ball and the official, state-sanctioned start of football on August 19; (2) set things up for our senior-led conditioning which takes place next week; (3) get them somewhat physically prepared for our rigorous circuit training, which takes place the following week-and-a-half.

A lot of this nonsense would be preventable if we didn’t have an 18-day “dead period” between August 1 and the start of football, during which we can’t do anything but condition our players.

We do our best to condition our kids, but the weather here doesn’t always cooperate. It was supposed to be “hot” on Wednesday  and Thursday - meaning, at Ocean Shores, 70 degrees - but it never got over 68.  Eat your hearts out, you guys in the Southwest, South, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic.  Actually, my hat’s off to you.  I don’t know how you manage to do the things you do in that heat and humidity.
