New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 24, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Texas Let UB have faith that right makes and in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it Abraham Lincoln December replacing the StarSpangled see below O pinions editor and General Manager Managing Editor Guest viewpoint Peace was secured at terrible cost Andy Rooney Sometimes football shouldnt betaken so seriously Notre Dame has just fired its foot ball Colleges fire football coaches the same way a president fires a cabinet The coach is called in and told hell be resigning in the The college or the president then accepts the resignation with reluc saying what a good joh the coach or cabinet member has Notre Dame takes football serious Its Gerry was fired because his teams didnt win enough Father Hesburg doesnt like to hear it but Notre Dame is better known for its football team than for its academic That is also true of universities like Georgia and probably Penn Some of them have good academic programs but they have never rank ed 1 in academic as their football teams have in Football at those colleges in rela tion to other schools is better than the education Alabama might beat Columbia several hundred to nothing on the football field but it seems likely the reverse would be true in the When a school football team wins more than half the games it plays over a period of 10 to 20 with rivals the same size and roughly equivalent in academic excellence or lack of the probably someones It isnt because the team has always had a great A great coach can make a dif ference but an average coach will win three or four game against a great coach in 10 given more or less the same caliber Im n6t high ongreat Too often their greatness has been directed toward attracting the best players and then holding the total at tention of the players to the exclusion of any other interest they might like Not many players on any of the top teams in the country have much time to study anything but especially if they play for a great Joe Paterno is a great coach and seems to have a genuine concern for his players at Penn State but football is not a game for college students aj that A lot of great coaches are a pain in the Vince Lombard was a great coach but he never should have Win ning isnt its the only Thats a terrible thing to tell young men who should be playing a game to have a good Winning is more fun but it isnt the only Inasmuch as half the peo ple playing a game are going to be its wrong to suggest the game isnt worth playing for its own If companies fired executives as quickly as colleges and professional football teams fire thered be a lot more changes at If colleges fired teachers the way they fire the academic ranks would be I suspect there are quite a few pro fessors at Notre Dame who arent as good at their jobs as Gerry Faust was at The only difference is th they do their work in private at the end of the they dont have to have a wonlost record for the alumni to Part of the problem ishat theres too much emphasis on national rank Im a football fan but Im irritated with newspaper sports sections that pay more attentions to a team representing a college miles away because its undefeated than it does to a local college when the team has only won two out of five I couldnt care less whether Oklahoma beats Oklahoma land The holiday season is a time when we celebrate Too often we that peace must sometimes be secured at a terrible As chairman of the Veterans Land I have the privilege of work Ing with and
