Great Talk! I think Coach must be a lay preacher...he held himself back though. Yes, athletics are the Front Porch. Notre Dame didn't become famous, and the focal point of several movies, because Knute Rockne taught Chemistry. There is much to learn from Team Sports, not the least of which, is how hard it is to succeed. Same skills apply to academics, business, and research, building a team with a single focus, and contributions from all team members, well, that is distilled to its pure essence in team sports. I also liked his take on paying the Athletes...he understands both sides, but believe me, if we start paying them, well, the top 25 teams will be the ONLY teams in existence. Great Talk. Loved it. Good luck Coach...keep preaching! Kevin
