ATLANTA —- The other day in College Park, Maryland coach Gary Williams made an interesting remark about how he’s been dubbed as a guy who only uses one system even if only a fraction of the Terrapins’ plays come out of the flex.
“We run a lot of plays, we have a reputation,” Williams said. “Three of them are basically the flex. If you want to call me a flex coach, that’s fine. I sell flex videos, so I am a flex coach.”
This, of course, elicited a laugh. And it is true; Williams has put together a DVD of his offense in action.
With some spare time this afternoon, I found the latest edition of his handwork on amazon.com.
This is all tame. But one of the unintentionally funny things about this page sits in the “Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought” section.
Namely a DVD featuring Hubie Brown.
“How to Win With Less Talent.”
Other than mentioning it made me chortle, not much else needs to be said. The irony is obvious.
