I’m not much of a coach, but in order to be successful, you need to understand why you lose games. I’ve studied countless coaches since I was old enough to choose a name from the school yard where I was born. I learned the basics of game strategy and defense, but I never really focused on game theory — because I don’t study game theory anymore.
I’m just a guy who loves coaching, and loves to talk sports, so I love to talk about games, and I love to talk game theory. So, I’m going to use the term “coaching therapy” to describe what I think coaching means to the players.
Let me be the first to say this is not about coaches. It’s about coaches who teach the players.
I’m not going to try to defend the indefensible.
The coaches at Rutgers were wrong to bench D.J. Durkin, and, in the long run, Rutgers fans can’t even imagine what a good decision that was. I would go further and say that we all should be able to find an appropriate response to any coaching decision from the coaches, without criticizing the coaches’ coaching skills.
I’m also going to be brutally honest about what I’ve seen. It’s difficult, even now, to know if you really understand what you’ve been told.
How do I know that, though? If you don’t know what you were told in junior high or high school, how would you know what you’re doing now? Or, for that matter, what you’re doing now.
I’ve had a series of coaches tell me that they didn’t realize that he was good enough to start in the NFL until they watched him play. I’ve had a series of coaches tell me that they were sure that I didn’t want to play again because of injuries. And, in all three cases, I’ve thought about what I could say to convince them otherwise. The truth is that you can’t. It has to come from within. It has to come from your heart and your mind. It has to come from understanding that the decision you made for yourself was wrong.
Maybe I should have had a family of my own. Maybe I should have come out sooner. Maybe if I hadn’t been so consumed by football, maybe I would have understood that this was something special. Maybe I could have been smarter.
I also had a series of coaches tell me that there was another place to go,
