Time Out!

Time Out!

It’s interesting how much more effective college ongoing coaching direction is in basketball than football. I think it’s because fewer players are involved, the coach is closer to the action, the coach has usually been a former player, and they can set strategies against individual strengths and weaknesses of the opponents. And, of course, it’s not the pros where you’re dealing with players who are mega-wealthy prima donnas who feel they come first.

Is that really very different in business?

    Also, it seems like basketball is like a small business, with just the coach and a few assistants. In football, it’s like a bureaucracy, with a “middle management” of coaches (line coach, quarterback coach, running back coach, coordinators, etc.)
