Re: Andy Reid

I love his approach to coaching. I hate that he's a byu guy. That was almost 40 years ago. He has coached Kevin Curtis, Curtis Marsh, and Darwin Thompson. Don't care too much where he went to school at decades ago. I don’t care where he went to school either, I love Andy Reid. He is a great guy. Ra...

In situations like this it would be nice if they'd just let the parents in. There's plenty of room for them to spread out and you could do it with minimal staffing.
