What college football coaches learned from the pandemic last year 🏈
WEST VIRGINIA COACH Neal Brown is hesitant when he says there are positive things to be gained from what he and his fellow coaches went through last season.
"Maybe 'positives' isn't the right word," he corrected himself.
Brown doesn't want to paint a rosy picture of what was a frustrating situation for everyone involved. Talk to enough coaches and they'll tell you how exhausting it was going through a pandemic, juggling safety and practice and those endless pages of protocols and, oh yeah, the games themselves.
They're creatures of habit who thrive on structure and routine. But as North Carolina coach Mack Brown told his staff one day last year, "The only thing consistent is inconsistency."
