    Auburn is going to miraculously have Calvin Ashley eligible for entrance when 5 high schools couldn't. I shouldn't be disparaging them, but they seem to have more luck than most.

  3. The scene in one of the episodes where he talks about his concussions might have something to do with it. Obviously it's unfair to judge him based off a one-minute conversation, but he sounded like he was one step away from coming to campus on a short bus.

    Love that the coach's own asshole behavior caused that fight and couldn't see his idiocy trying to score before halftime was the real shit move.

    How could you forget the player asking the visiting coach to commit a recruiting violation?

    "What would it take for you to come to our campus?"

    "Cameras are on, coach"

    I liked the advisor, Trickett, and I think the OC was an underrated good guy. Cared for the kids and was the "build them up after they've been torn down" coach. Also seemed to know his shit.

    I didn't mind the HC. He's an asshole, yeah, but he deals with some asshole players who need someone to check them. He was spot on when he said some kids are responsive to his antics and others shut down. A bit of a loose cannon, sure, and a bit much for that level of ball, but there are many coaches out there who have that second personality when they're on the field. I coached high school with one before and it's weird to have to deal with. Not quite at that level of insanity, but the point remains.

    Watched the first episode last night. Not sure how much Ms. Academic Advisor is making at EMCC but she needs to use this for a raise or a new gig in a city or at a school she wants to be at.

    Be careful getting too close to those athletes though...

    It was easy to call that the coach would tell them how serious they take concussions in the interview portion while insulting the player elsewhere.

    With how recruiting the Southeast works and the success he's had he must really be disliked by the coaches to not have taken a better job. Especially because I have no doubt he's tried selling himself as a package deal for a recruit.

    Decent series. I wish they were there when Swag Kelly was around.

    I get why people find these kids unlikable especially the main characters. I don't get the Ronald Ollie hate though he's a classic product of the environment he had around him.

    Miss Wagner the real MVP. She's impressive at her job and you can see how much she cares for them kids.

    i've only watched the first four episodes, but his portrayal imo has been

    talent: baller
    leadership: somewhere between cancer and shit
    general demeanor: fake and annoying
    productivity: he has been splitting snaps with a local kid whose best option was this juco

    I didn't realize this Franklin kid was a college junior by the time he arrived on campus at EMCC, which makes his shitty play/attitude/maturity level that much more laughable.

    Supposedly stole money by having players sign fake expense vouchers while on away trips. Also said he was just an overall cock sucker who thinks he some kind of coaching God.
