Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

The Eagles were not “much in the clutch” this past week, blowing fourth quarter leads to Jarrell and Academy. I hope they can “finish” all the games in the second round. I know this is critical, and the Eagles were just as disappointed as all the fans.

The Lady Eagles are basically out of the district race, but they do more with less height than any team around.

The Super Bowl will now be more about the brothers Harbaugh than it will be about the players. Both have good offensive lines, good backs, and dominating defenses. Sounds like dad did a good job of teaching the boys.

Texas Coach Rick Barnes is lambasting his players for lack of effort. He is taking the focus off himself and putting the blame on the players. That is not good for recruiting, because kids don’t like to be blamed.

The players have been convinced by recruiters that they are all all-stars. You wonder why they would have attitudes!!!! Would you go to a place if the coach told you ‘you will have a chance to compete for a starting position’ compared to ‘you will be playing in front of 80,000 rabid fans’?
