Coaches are human. Politicians, too.

In my state — or at least in East Tenn., UT football matters about as much as religion. Maybe more.

And for years now, UT has been struggling. We’re on our third Coach in about five or six years.

And a lot of folks are calling for his head — same as they do at major schools around the country when the team struggles. I don’t expect you to know our Coach or to even care, but as those who want him fired and those who want him retained have clashed, it’s gotten pretty heated and ugly.

A lot like politics.

And in the midst of this, a college senior at UT wrote a beautiful article about the situation that I think applies perfectly to our political situation.

This is WELL WORTH reading. Who knows. It might even help lower your blood pressure.

  1. Another lesson in life from organized sports. Huh. Who woulda thunk it? It seems that if we listen, there are lessons out there.

    Good job, Stan.

    • Thanks, Tim! BTW, can you talk to me about your Twitter strategy? It seems you’re wearing out Twitter, and taking it easy on the blog? Am I wrong, and if not, how’s it working?
