Until Friday - the day before the game - not a thing was written about the game.
It's 250 pages long, with more than 150 plays, and more than 150 photos of drills and plays. But they weren’t playing it the way the French insist it be played.CONTENTS I also include and explain my wristcard-based play-calling system - it streamlines teaching and makes memorization obsolete, eliminating as much as it's humanly possible the need for kids to memorize plays. As they headed into the final game, their coach was repeatedly criticized for his team’s stodgy play, with its heavy emphasis on defense.They just had to imply that football was dangerous, but this kid had come to his senses and decided not to play any more.But to show how clueless the writer was, she totally whiffed on two great ironies in the story: 1.Two of the three concussions the kid had suffered since eighth grade occurred in one single “lacrosse match.” In other words, he suffered not one concussion attributable to football during his entire high school career. If he’s through with football - if it’s so f—king dangerous - then how come he was taking his chances, playing in this “one last game?
” *********** “One of the secrets of Trump’s success is having really, really stupid enemies, enemies who are so tone-deaf and out-of-touch that they simply cannot adopt commonsense positions that resonate among normal Americans. That's it for me - No more standing on street corners and reading aloud the lyrics of popular hip-hop “songs." Zap!The story was about a kid who’d suffered three of them since eighth grade, and had finally decided that that was enough.Now, according to the story, he “got proactive about his health and well-being.” He decided to turn down a scholarship to play football at NAIA Montana Tech. Now, I was pretty pissed at the idea that with maybe 70 kids, each with stories of their own, they had to go negative.Its news is politically slanted (and to the left, it goes without saying); at least half of its front sports page typically consists of photographs - usually one large one - no doubt because it saves them from having to pay writers; the writers they do pay seem to have slept through the part of journalism school where they taught about sentence structure; and they are severely lacking in judgement when it comes to what to write about. This past Saturday night, the annual “Freedom Bowl Classic,” a local all-star football game featuring the graduates of our county’s 17 high schools, took place.But you’d never have known it if you depended for your news on the Columbian - which, unfortunately, most people in the county do.For those coaches who might want to adopt my system, the playcards are already in the book, prepared and ready to go. Since I have been running your system for so long now, is there much value added with this one or is this for people just beginning? This is certainly designed to help the first-timer get up and running, but it's also a major upgrade for the hard-core Double Wing coach. Hey coach, Does your new doublewing playbook have any plays from shotgun or any pistol or is it all from under center? One reporter, accusing him of wasting all the talent at his disposal, compared him to a man driving a Ferrari at the speed limit.
