Just two weeks into the college football season, the TV commentators are already driving me crazy. My current aggravation is describing a team as “well coached.” While some teams may play up to their potential more than others, virtually every team is “well coached,” according to Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and the like. Except, of course, the teams that are “extremely well coached.”
It goes without saying that no team has ever been described as “poorly coached.” At the end of the season, some coaches will be 0-12 or 3-9. Apparently it won’t be their fault.
