You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
I applaud that coach. Need more people like him.

Hooray! - That's the way coaches used to be years and years ago! At least they were in the places where I lived.

The 'Coach' ought to get "Teacher-of-the-Year-Award"!!! Maybe the Inner-City Schools could take some notes.
I went to Detroit Public Schools as a kid, in the Bad-ol'-Days.... we could have used a few good teachers like that "Coach". (i hear they still could)
Coach is getting great support by fans and family here. Even the players are supportive.
