Coach speak bad, real speak also bad

Coach Elliott gets his chops busted for giving a "coach's answer" over why our offense looked not do great against GT.

Meanwhile, Dabo gives a fairly straight-up answer on why LJD was getting less snaps (he was in the doghouse) and people lose their minds that a coach would say that about a player.

Do you want more "coach-like" answers that are vague and don't answer the question? Or do you want the actual truth from coaches?

I get your point, but in reality both of those answers are very vague. Saying a guy needs to "grow up" does not answer much - there are a lot of ways in which a person can grow up. That being said, I'm not terribly upset with either answer given. I don't feel I am entitled to know every inner working of a coach's mindset or what is going on in a locker room.

The truth, of course.

Coach speak is boring and useless most of the time. It usually serves to protect coaches from having to say anything meaningful, i.e. tell the truth.

Dabo getting trashed for being honest about Lyn-J was almost as predictable as it was ridiculous. I'll never fault a coach for giving his honest opinion.

The last thing I do (or would) care about is hurting people's feelings by telling truth. It might be sometimes inconvenient and uncomfortable, but "oh well" that's life.
