Football Coaches Recruit Talent! Uh, Really?
In the college sports game, media pundits, sports information press releases, sports talk show hosts, and of course the collegiate coaches themselves all preach a consistent, oft-repeated sermon when it comes to the players that “their” teams pursue: “We recruit the most talented players available.” The devoted zealots (after all, the root word of “fan” is “fanatic”) who mindlessly worship at the altar of “their” team unquestioningly swallow and repeat this mantra, blindly accepting this platitude as they faithfully pray for a win on game day. But with literally billions of dollars involved in the cult of sport, why do so few devoted parishioners question whether their alms are being given to a true belief? Yes, only blind faith could be so. . .well . . . blind as to accept such an obviously false premise. Yes, I said it. The precept that “coaches recruit the best talent available” is a HUGE lie. http://www.castefootball.us/viewarticle.asp?sportID=3&teamID=0&ID=23709
