MasterCoach

Creating the Lincoln College Cardinals, then coaching, recruiting, and disciplining those Cardinals for two seasons: 21 hours.

Doing a poor job disciplining, having your team for that reason put on probation for two years (which would have included the loss of 10 scholarships per year), but immediately ditching the Cardinals to accept a three-year contract with Oklahoma: 1/2 of a second (I had the choice to coach the booming Sooners or the marginal Cardinals short ten scholarships--I'm not stupid!).

Coaching my first year of Oklahoma football: 9 hours.

Going undefeated, winning the Big 12 and the National Championship, claiming the Coach of the Year Award, and having a player win the Heisman Trophy: Timeless.

There are some coaches in life who want real, flesh-and-blood human teams. For everyone else, there's EA Sports' NCAA Football 2005.

So you spent over a day playing one video game? I bet you could have read three theology books in that amount of time. But you wouldn't have gotten Coach of the Year then, I suppose.

Ben--
In fact, I did quite a bit of reading over the break, but I think that reading theology and playing football complement each other. I'm reminded of the words (sort of) famously inscribed on Nebraska's Memorial Stadium:

"Not the theology but the action. Not the soul but the game. Yet, in the read the glory."

(Okay, this one's a pretty big stretch--the original quotation is: "Not the victory but the action. Not the goal but the game. In the deed the glory." Perhaps this isn't my wittiest comment ever, but not for lack of effort...

Time spent trying to write a good comeback: 2 much.)

I had a lot of fun starting by coaching Rice, 5 years later leading them to a National Championship, and a invitation to the Big 12, accepting a coaching spot at Florida; 3years, 3National Championships, Moving to Tennessee; 2 Championships; Moving to Texas A&M and winning countless National Championships... Laughing at all of the coaching offers

Hi, just a quick post as I’m short of time but thought I must congratulate you on your interesting MasterCoach blog. I’m just finishing of my site hair thinning and hope that it will eventually be as professional as yours. I’m still coming across typo’s I’ve made – I think my spell checker must be faulty……….lol
Anyway Blogger, thanks again and see you again when I’m in less of a rush.

Hi Blogger, your MasterCoach blog came up when I was looking for info on going bald for a family member. He was impressed with your blog and has started his own site at going bald, thanks for the inspiration that you have provided.
