Naturally, in the same way my 9 month old son cannot resist finding every electrical socket or power conducting cord in our home and going straight for it, I am drawn to write about “it”. However, rather than ranting about Izzo, I’m going to go a different direction.
One of the questions that I often field from coaches goes something like this:
"What do I do about (athlete x)? They are struggling and they blame it on (laundry list of small things). I don't think that's really what the problem is".
This is a frustrating and common problem, one that can even get a bit infectious under the right conditions on a team. Often it leads frustrated coaches to challenge the athlete on the validity of their claims.
