    “Don’t do things you can’t do! Do the things you can do”!
    “Play hard! But have fun doing it”!
    The first by Huggins. Second by new football coach Brown.
    There’s an interesting dichotomy present in the execution
    of these philosophies!
    What if what you’re coached to do is not what you do best?
    If an individual or team struggles at doing something they
    can’t do or are bad at, what chance is there of a happy state?
    Is this team happy?

    Mutually Exclusive?

    If you continue to do things you can’t do and keep failing will you have fun doing it?

    The coaching staff knows better than anyone what a player can and can’t do.

    Huggins doesn’t coach players to do what they can’t. Brown doesn’t either.

    And the two statements:

    “Don’t do things you can’t do! Do the things you can do” and “Play hard but have fun doing it” don’t have anything to do with each other.

    That’s like saying: We’re going to press for 40 minutes is in direct opposition to Funnel Cakes taste great

    Looking at the last part of your statement,I understand where you are coming from. If coaches aren’t identifying what players can and can’t do, and are trying to make them into something they are not (like say, running Jack Allison on zone reads) then that’s on the coaches, and no fun for the players.

    I don’t see Huggs doing that. And after talking with Vic Koenning on Thursday, that was a point of emphasis with him too.

    Could it be a problem? Sure, but I don’t anticipate that happening. Huggs has adapted what he does to his players numerous times over the course of his career. Brown exhibited that at Troy last year.

    Are you sure about that second sentence?
