    Re: 1700 AM - COWHERD - ISU mention

    His point was that football coaches are so much more important to the results of the games that "the football coach at Iowa State makes more than most MLB managers, and that's just to coach 12 games."

    It was not a dig on Iowa State, unless you are offended by the fact that Iowa is a tiny market relative to the rest of the country. He also mentioned Kentucky in the same way.

    This is a little off topic, but not totally. As I watched some MLB this weekend I noticed how little actual coaching, teaching and communicating managers do with players during games. After base-running errors or poor at-bats, nothing is said...no pat on the back, no yelling, no nothing; just arms crossed or pacing, etc. Maybe it's why they're "managers" and not "coaches," I suppose.

    I agree, though, that a MLB manager's job is easier than a high D-I college football job.

    He'd stall long enough to have his producer look it up and pimp him if he didn't.

    He's a pretty big college football fan, though. Plus it's his job to know sports. I'm betting he could name coaches at pretty much every BCS conference, and a fair number of non-BCS ones.

    Ok, then we go to the studio and wait outside for his show to finish, we jump him and force him to answer the question. If he gets it right, we buy him a beer. If not we cut off his tie.
    or not.

    I agree with all of this.....had many similar thoughts. Also, why do they wear an actual jersey? I don't get it. Wouldn't be hilarius if Phil Jackson came out in a Laker jersey? Why baseball?

    The reason baseball managers wear the uniform dates back to when baseball had manager/players and the manager of the team also played and the tradition has carried through to this day.

    Apparently you don't watch Twins games then. On Saturday during the Brewers game Denard Span missed the cutoff man. When the Twins got out of the inning Gardenhire gave a small, calm lecture to Span about the importance of hitting the cutoff man, and then gave him a little pat on the shoulder telling him to keep up the aggressive play, but to be smart about it.

    But then again, that's probably why Gardy is generally considered to be one of the best managers in the game...

    Basketball (and I think Football) had player/coaches as well.

    I see it the opposite way. Football head coaches are often managers of their coordinators. I think the important "coaching" is most often done by the assistants and coordinators with occasional input from the head coach. It is similar to how a CEO directs a pyramid of management below him.
