    2) Another retread gets hired by lower division OC school. This is similar to Santa Fe burnout going to Savanna last year and repeating lack of success.

    I don’t really understand why proven assistants from winning programs don’t get a chance , but coaches who are mediocre at best get opportunity after opportunity.

    I read that the NFL is legally considered entertainment, whereas college football is a sport. This means the NFL is within their legal bounds to fix games, because doing so can be considered part of making the games more entertaining, same as changing a movie script to make it better.
