    Anybody see this yet? For those that don't know, season 1 is a 6 part documentary on Netflix about East Miss JUCO. I didn't realize that's where Trickett was.

    So far it is exactly like you think you think a JUCO in Scooba, MS would be.

    If Clint Trickett wanted to coach, wouldn't he have been starting off as a GA rather than a QB coach at a Juco?

    Amazingly enough, he had one good half in the entire season before he got his offer.
    Most of the spotlighted players, to me, were unlikable.

    DJ Law and Ronald Ollie both have unrealistic assessments of their own talent and are me-first players. Ollie is dumb as sand and should have thanked whatever spiritual being he could that he had an offer to move up. Law was told a hundred times to walk away from any cheap shot and he couldn't do it. Even the head coach is a douche for the most part. Granted, he was angry about the fight but to castigate everyone else after the show he put on earlier...no credibility at all.

    I think I read something he or his dad said that starting off it's good to coach first, learn second (I would imagine he'll be looking to GA somewhere soon.) Don't know if I agree with that statement but at the bare minimum you have real coaching responsibilities. He could probably do better income-wise as a GA now too with the cost of attendance deal

    Fair enough. I felt like those guys had their moments/showed softer sides. Both grew up without father figures and were afraid to commit to things they weren't good at, like school. Olly is about as smart as a 10 year old.

    Can we talk about the guy who does the lion roar? He was killing me

    Stephens is a known POS in Mississippi JUCO circles.

    The bullshit at EMCC (and Copiah-Lincoln) allowed the 3rd best team in the state to not only be state champs, but national champs. The JUCO system in Mississippi truly is the wild west of football.

    He thinks he is gods gift to coaching football.

    You take players that no one else would due to issues and out athlete opponents. Also it's JUCO so turbo needs to slow his role. Someone needs check his ass.

    Everyone wanted out, but he was acting like it was an original thought of his and that his teammates were stuck there.

    And he also said "On God" way too many times.

    Auburn was actually a good choice for him, because he's obviously going to need some luck to succeed - and they're Luck U.
