Why Your Coach Votes Republican
Interesting article in today’s Wall Street Journal about why it appears that most college football coaches vote Republican. It should be fodder for plenty of discussion, especially the comments of Coach Lou Holtz:
Mr. Holtz, who coached Notre Dame to its last national championship in 1988, draws a parallel between the standards and rules that most coaches set for their players and the Republican vision of how American society ought to operate.
“You aren’t entitled to anything. You don’t inherit anything. You get what you earn—your position on the team,” Mr. Holtz said. “You’re treated like everybody else. You’re held accountable for your actions. You understand that your decisions affect other people on that team…There’s winners, there’s losers, and there’s competitiveness.”
