BLEACHERS BREW EST. MAY 2006

Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Talo na. Gulpi pa. Is this what college sports has come down to?

There is this college football team (I cannot say which league) where the head coach has his seniors beat up -- and I do mean beat up --- the underclassmen after a loss in which they did not play well. The seniors have no choice because the coach will take it out on them. So when they hit their teammates, they cry. Unlike the other teams where their coaches heap a lot of verbal abuse on their players, this team is rather toned down on the sidelines. The trouble is, they take it out on their players afterwards. One team hates their coaches with a passion. No exception. From the starting eleven all the way down to the reserves. This is the sad state of college sports. Win at all costs. And the school in question has no idea what is going on.

  2. Barbaric. That Coach should be FIRED, no school can allow physical abuse in its premises, ESPECIALLY initiated by its staff.

  5. This is not news and this has been happening for many years now but no one seems to give a shit! If we are referring to the same coach the coach is from the NCAA.
