************* A coach whose team is off to a bad start told me he remains optimistic because his kids are young.

I wrote him,

We are kicking a little ass right now, but three years ago, when we took over the program, this year's seniors were freshmen, and we didn't have a lot of upperclassmen to show them the way. Besides, our veterans had already been through two years of being kicked around themselves, so we found ourselves on the wrong end of some serious whuppings.  Two years ago, we had three running clocks put on us. We didn't really start to change to becoming the ass kickers ourselves until just last year.  Part of the explanation was our opening up of the Double Wing, but part of it was a great improvement in our defense, which can only be attributed to our kids growing older, stronger and more confident.  With those things came toughness and aggressiveness. In all that time, though, our practice routine and our fundamental drills have never changed.
