“Just so everyone knows, we don’t teach our guys to just dive at the ground and not see what you hit,” Sitake said. “We teach our guys to be aggressive, close the grass, keep your eyes on the ball-carrier and strike.”
Sitake is sometimes unsure if certain players are deliberately being defiant because they don’t believe in the scheme or if they simply “get freaked out” when the pressure ramps up with thousands of onlookers in the stands.
It sounds like they are getting stage freight. It’s lame Sitake thinks they might be purposely defiant. They should have given the actual quote on that one. Maybe now that the pressure is off and the season is lost, they can relax and show the improvement we’re all expecting.
