The Worst Thing That Can Possibly Happen To Rutgers Football Is To Get Their Head Coach Back From Suspension
Who would you want coaching your college football team?
A) A coach that repeats the same nauseating cliche in every press conference he's ever given. A coach that preaches the importance of doing things the right way, yet went behind the university's back and still failed to help his braindead player make the grade in a class that is one step above a 2nd grade education. A coach that stresses the concept of a football team being a "family", but put the well being of one player (who clearly didn't care about the team anyway) ahead of the well being of the team. A coach that has proven to be mediocre, at best, at in-game decision making. A coach that hardly ever interacts with his players during the game. A coach that spends 90% of the time in between plays presumably scribbling down the making of his future memoirs. A coach that has shown that sometimes the moment can be too big for him. A coach that has proven that the only thing he can consistently get out of his team is inconsistency.
B) A coach that actually has a personality. A coach that gives new, insightful, and passionate answers to every question. A coach that isn't afraid to interact with his players during the game. A coach that makes sure to compliment and congratulate his players after big plays. A coach that isn't afraid to discipline his players during the game. A coach that will take the blame for his players after the game, even if it wasn't remotely his fault. A coach that took over the coaching duties under the most dire of circumstances and has improved the team every single week he's been at the helm.
The first coach is Rutgers Head Coach Kyle Flood, the second coach is Rutgers Interim Coach/ Running Backs coach Norries Wilson, and I fail how to see how the former is a better option than the latter. I know there is a lot more that goes into coaching than what we see on the sidelines, but if that is any indication than I feel much more comfortable with Wilson leading this team than Flood. Only as a Rutgers fans could the head of your program get reinstated and make you long for the days when a glorified position coach was running the team. One day, hopefully soon, the coach that lacked any and all subtlety in circumventing university rules will get fired, and when he does Norries Wilson just might make a hell of a replacement.
Sorry drunk, shirtless college student, but the only thing that Kyle Flood should be freed from is his duties to Rutgers University and their football program...
