    That guy sucked, but I’d watch.

    I’m curious who takes that call from Netflix. I want more seasons, it’s an insight into the JUCO system that I really never had, but it seems like it’s likely to end in disaster too. High level JUCO ball seems to hang by a thread regardless.

    It's that way in basically most sports. Know a couple JUCO wrestling coaches, a JUCO men's Basketball coach, know several that have played football, basketball and wrestled at JUCOs and it doesn't end as a success for most.

    Agreed.
    There is a component of the drama caused by the coaches That is somewhat entertaining.

    They’re a lot like the players. No one wants to be there but it’s a necessary stepping stone for guys who have failed at their last stop.

    It's funny whenever some dorky white kid tries to talk like he's black, thinking it's cool. Newsflash, Jethro, the black kids make fun of you behind your back and they think you are lame!

    But then you have a dumb 40-something year old doing it and that is a whole new level of douchiness. Grow up, JB... You're old, fat and nobody likes you. I hope he doesn't get another coaching job anywhere.

    Any team that would hire this guy would be dumb. He can't do high school. No way you can have a guy that drops that many f Bombs and drinks that much can be a high school coach.

    He is currently on felony charges for blackmail, Signing false docs and some other stuff.

    Plus, I mean he is not that good of a coach. He seemed to get stuff done at ICC in the way of getting facilities done. However, his team last season sucked and they were loaded with Talent.

    Regarding your first paragraph, you don’t know a lot of HS coaches do you? Sons team has one pretty similar and a HC that isn’t too far off.

    The difference is this guy is over the top on the swearing and it's been on TV how he treats kids.

    No way defending this guy in any way shape or form....as far as talking the way he does you have to remember where he grew up at. Compton and I'm guessing there weren't a lot of other kids to talk hillbilly with.

    The treatment is poor, goes back to 70/80s style. The swearing.......I know one specific HS where the HC was contacted and then schoolboard because Browns locker room speeches was this assistance’s game voice. If he didn’t squeeze in an F bomb every third word, they questioned if he was feeling ok. He is a guy who stills thinks HS football is the pinnacle of life. Another parochial school HC is almost as bad, but you can’t go much higher than him since he is also the super at the school. My HS, in the 80s coach tried to groin kick me, thankfully I moved enough that he just grazed the side, and would waylay you along side the helmet if you messed up in practice and this guy is still coaching. There are still a few really bad coaches in the HS ranks out there.

    Binged watched on Saturday. Both seasons at Indy have left me so impressed with the assistant coaches and academic support staff. You can tell they genuinely care. I thought this season's most interesting story line was the younger Coach Martin. Just a neat story with his spouse sticking with it and believing in his dream. I hope he makes it D1. Same thing for last year's QB coach.

    Yeah I hope those coaches don't get stuck in the Juco level. I looked up some of the guys from season 3 and found out that some are now at like FAU and schools like that. I am wondering where the quarterbacks coach who resigned will end up. The season 4 guy

    I think the coaching drama has been intriguing but would agree with some of you - let's see a new school. I would be interested to see a JUCO program that has a team mentality and a coach that can actually coach (maybe it doesn't exist and actually sounds boring as I type this out).

    Both Buddy and Jason have a knack for recruiting, so their strategy is to get the best players and then out-talent the competition. But both have egos larger than their brains and were not very good in-game coaches.

    I thought the same thing. Thinking more about it, I'm not sure if it was actually better or if I was just more aware of the S-show it was leading into it. Still one of my favorite (from entertainment standpoint) shows to pop up in the last few years. Such a unique look into interesting situations.

    Yeah, seems like a lot decent guys just trying to get a foot in the door and their career is in the hands of a complete moron who’ll throw you under the bus when it’s convienent.

    I'd enjoy it if they keep the same pace, 2 years then move on to the next one. Nice to see familiar faces, but also nice to see new ones as well as locations/facilities.

    I think the recruiting part is huge. I believe the show would be far less entertaining if there weren't P5 guys dropping down with the varieties of baggage they carry. Managing the personalities on and off the field is the draw for me on this one.

    I thought the worst part of Jason Brown besides all his nonsense was him getting mad at players and just cutting them. Like they were in the NFL. These are kids he recruited to come to the school, they pay the money to attend, then he just cuts them if they don't have a good practice. I didn't even realize you could just cut a kid.

    I would like to see them move next year to Garden city CC. That coach is crazy also, but seems to run a better program.
