    I can't be the only one thinking KJ could've done better. I was severely confused by the couple

    Also, it seemed like the only real problem child on the team was Joe Hampton.

    I know there are obviously more football players than basketball, so you are going to have more issues all around. But we really didn’t see discipline issues outside of any kid but Hampton, and I don’t remember any real school issues. Looked like a lot of the kids saw this as an opportunity to succeed and move on

    My original post said I cared about their home/school lives. Anything more with the school/academic side would have been fine with me as well.

    Right, I'm saying you're asking for something that isn't there.

    We can agree to disagree on that. Some of the previous seasons went a little deeper into the academic stuff and I always enjoyed that. But I also don’t need an advisor/tutor to basically be the star like the Mississippi lady was.

    This is mostly a moot point. They’ve only got eight episodes to fit everything in and the latest season may have been my favorite one.

    Just finished and it exceeded my expectations. My favorite part was when they role played Mosley at the retreat. We did that in college with our coaches. Those are some moments I’ll never forget and some of the times I think I laughed the hardest with my teammates.

    yea cause it’s annoying as fuck when someone is imposing their views on you when you’re not asking for it. I’m sure that made a lot of guys uncomfortable, made me uncomfortable watching it. That’s not to say he’s a bad guy by any means, but he should tone that down.

    I know if I did that, or preached atheism to my students I would most likely get fired.

    Dude couldn't hack it with all the support in the world. How he plans on handling this will be interesting. He's also like 220 pounds now from not working out due to the epilepsy
