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!
flagTUESDAY,  JULY  29,  2014"The successful football coach is the one who can get the most from the average player - because most players are average."   Bear Bryant

*********** An Army National Guard officer, who just happens to be a United States senator from Montana, has been caught, it appears, wit his pants down, charged with plagiarism in a paper written to earn his master's degree from the Army War College.

First, his office said that he'd been stressed because he'd been involved in larger numbers of IED explosions while deployed.  But upon further questioning, the actual number of bombings to which he'd been subjected was revised downward.  To one.

Next, he said his conduct was owing to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but that didn't go over well with veterans, so that one was reeled in.

Then, it was a "mistake."   Wait.  A mistake is calling a pass to your best receiver and then discovering he's not in the game.  A mistake is picking up the wrong set of keys.  A mistake is forgetting to order cheese on your Whopper.

Nothing on this scale can possibly be considered a mistake.

It is a violation of academic ethics,  pure and simple, and a violation of the ethics that is a core value for a United States Army officer.  Drum his sorry ass out of the service.
