    Just what is coaching harder?

    I have heard Mac say this every week for 6 weeks in a row. To me it doesn't even make sense. Does anyone paint harder, engineer harder, account harder, teach harder?

    Sorry, I had to do it.

    I agree though- I've thought that to myself every time he says it. He's certainly spinning harder this season.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Maybe "coaching harder" is a euphemism for finding new ways to pump up the other team after you lose by 30.

    Perhaps if we had any players named "Harder," they would be well-coached.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    Coaching harder is simpler telling bigger lies each week to your staff, players, JP, Mom, media, fans and yourself. That is hard.

    That is what I get for trying to post with my 3 year old boy 'helping' me.

    It's an expression to try and save your job. Nothing more.

    Is he saying that he wasn't coaching his hardest earlier this season?! For $1.1 million you better bust your *** every day. I think he does that but he makes himself look like a moron saying things like that.

    My whole point is that what Mac and his coaches need to start doing is coaching smarter or better. Coaching harder sounds like a guy pounding nails who thinks if he swings harder it will make up for hit the nail head 1 out of 4 times.

    It means pacing the sideline and extra 5 feet in each direction and clapping 10 more times than normal while pacing.

    Don't forget throwing in a few extra "No question about it"'s at the pressers.

    ...or 3 out of 10 times (0 for 6) and quite possibly 3 out of 12 times (0 for 8)...
