Pull up a chair on this one and stay awhile?
University of Central Florida and University of Florida.
One team is 6 and 0, the other is 0 and 6.
This is not your typical sports nut bragging about his team after the game is over.
This is about teaching our children about how to survive in the world to come?
I will be writing about a couple of teams that I am now able to report about however, this scenario is taking place all over this country and in some others as well.
This is just another reason why sports has changes since it was first started in schools as a way to help children get healthy and keep the blood flowing to stay awake in class to learn?
Remember the classroom, teaching and learning?
Over the past few years players have come up through the system from sandbox to pro teams.
Many, far too many have a shaky past to say the least, you know what I am talking about if you have been watching news?
Each of these players is now making millions playing a game.
To start with,
Coach George O’Leary
UCF is now 0 and 6 for the year.
This year ‘Coach’ has a young team, to top this off he lost his starting quarterback and a number of his seasoned players.
Already the fans in the stands are showing up at games with paper bags over their faces and calling for him to be fired?
George Joseph O’Leary is an American football coach and college athletics administrator.
He is the current head football coach and interim athletic director of the University of Central Florida (UCF), positions he has held since 2004 and 2015, respectively.
O’Leary previously coached the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets from 1994 to 2001, and was an assistant coach for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League (NFL) from 2002 to 2004.
He also served as an assistant coach for the Syracuse Orange and San Diego Chargers.
O’Leary is widely known for his success with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the UCF Knights.
During his eleven-year tenure with the Knights, O’Leary has guided the team to the fourth-best turnaround in NCAA history (2005), and led UCF to one of the biggest upsets of the BCS era in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl.
O’Leary is also known for his brief tenure in 2001 as head coach for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
In other words, he is a winner!
The Florida Gators (University of Florida) is another story, they have been winners for many years.
First year coach is 6 and 0 this year?
I will not go into their recent down fall, although there was a lot of dirty trickery going on at the top however, it is irrelevant to this post.
Coach Muschamp was their coach.
William Larry Muschamp is a college football coach.
He is currently the defensive coordinator for the Auburn Tigers football team.
Prior to that, Muschamp was the head coach of the Florida Gators football team from 2011 to 2014.
In these 3 years ‘coach’ had to completely rebuild the team from scratch.
However, he was fired!
A native of Georgia, Muschamp attended the University of Georgia and played for the Georgia Bulldogs. Muschamp previously served as the defensive coordinator for the LSU Tigers, Auburn Tigers, and the Texas Longhorns. He also served as the assistant head coach for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL).
Muschamp has gained a reputation both for his defenses and his demeanor during games and practice. In his first season at Auburn, Muschamp was a finalist for the 2007 Broyles Award for the most outstanding assistant coach in college football.
In other words he is a winner!
Now along came James McElwain.
James Frank McElwain is an American football coach and former player.
He is currently the head coach of the Florida Gators.
He previously served as the head coach at Colorado State from 2012 to 2014 and was named the Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year in 2014.
He also served as offensive coordinator for the Alabama Crimson Tide from 2008 to 2011
Coach Jim has the team at 6 and 0 half way through the season in his first year.
Point being and the reason for the posting,.
Coach James McElwain is riding high with the players scouted and signed to Florida by Coach Muschamp and his staff?
My opinion for what it is worth?
William Larry Muschamp got a dirty deal from day one however,
as you can see he is a winner and a great Defensive Coach!
