On Winning

I can’t remember if Coach’s football team (Minnesota State) was good or not. On the one hand, I remember some episodes where they went to bowl games, but on the other hand, I also remember a lot of jokes about the team being bad. This was something of an easy joke that they could work in whenever they needed. Probably there were scenes where maybe Coach and Luther had to come up with some scheme to lie to Christine for whatever reason, and Coach would be like, “okay Luther, remember…” and then give some elaborate plan as to the lie they were going to tell, and then Luther would be all “gee Hayden, maybe if you spent this much time coming up with football plays we’d win a few more games.” And then the audience would laugh.

But I guess actually that’s a pretty accurate assessment. Coach seemed to spend a lot of time getting in and out of zany situations. Why didn’t he spend more time coming up with football plays?
