What do they want?

Do you ever wonder what it takes to keep some school’s athletic boosters happy? Some fans crumble when their coach wins at an 80% level because he/she doesn’t win the sectional every year. I think I recall a couple of coaches like this. Others grumble because he/she doesn’t win games by a large enough margin. In other words, they don’t run the score up on an opponent when they get them down. Others win state titles but when they have a bad year they are let go because–I guess–they aren’t playing the right players or the ones they are playing are not winning. Some schools find real clever ways to get rid of a successful coach when they run out of favor by rewriting the job description. When the school does this, they must open it up to new applicants. They usually extend an invitation to the present coach to apply, but you know darn well they are not going to hire them back. Most of the time someone in a system has enough power to tilt the scales so that the administration is put in a situation that requires some kind of action or they will be the next ones to feel the wrath of the powers that be. What normally occurs is the new coach doesn’t have any more success than the predecessor and the whole process goes into action again. In fact, the new coach usually does worse. What it boils down to is you win when you have good athletes–you lose when you do not!
