His articles make me sad mostly for him

It becomes more clear how the program was where it was at the end as I read "Deep Thoughts, by Coach".

Tell me how you are teaching responsible behavior by telling 21 year olds that the only responsible way to consume alcohol is not at all? How can you remove all self-responsibility from your players by essentially saying if you have a cocktail at an afternoon tailgate, you have a free pass to get wasted until 4 in the morning?

Perhaps the hidden message in the response of "promise me a championship and I will give up alcohol" was really "stop treating certain players with preference over the best interest of the team and I will commit to the same level"? I don't know for certain.

But I agree with Howie - in a sense - the Starsia articles are MORE depressing to me than the football board. I am old enough that I don't expect to win at football. It isn't the responses here that depress me, it is what coach is writing.
