Last Chance U 2nd season don't read unless you've seen it. Sorry Ging

Post by tincup1215 on Wed Aug 02, 2017 12:48 pm

Just finished the 2nd season.  Wow.  Buddy Stephans is kind of a douche.  

Question for you HC's.  You're in a playoff game , its the 1st half, and your OC tells you to call a TO because he thinks there is 12 men on the field, but turns out there was only 11 so you waste a TO.  Do you fire the OC on the spot and give the play calls to your next man up?

It's a rhetorical question... the situation I asked definitely doesn't happen in the show... Wink

Perhaps I'm becoming a conspiracy theorist, but I'm somewhat certain that scene was edited to heighten the drama. It's one of the few scenes where the camera's weren't right there on the sideline. The quotes almost sounded more like voiceovers than anything else. And, the part that really got me, was the fact there was no hesitation or surprise on the booth coach's face; he literally hopped up and ran down the stairs as soon as Buddy summoned him down. Either that or it was legitimate, but more of an inside job so to speak that the first time the OC messed up...Boom! He was fired.

I actually do like the show, though. Despite what I said there, I do think it's a pretty legitimate look into the dealings of a football program on that level. Granted, I don't have the first-hand experience to make direct comparisons.

I heard that there will be a season 3 but they are covering a JUCO in Kansas instead. As much of an arse as Buddy Stephens appears at times, I read that he was all for keeping the show at his school so not sure what necessitated the change.

If true, that's really too bad.

I like the show and I think that there is enough drama without having to manufacture it.

It very well may have been legit...just seemed odd compared to how the rest of the series and in particular game sequences are filmed, plus it was almost literally the only thing they showed from that game.

Also, my view may have been slanted a bit as I read a similar opinion on Huey's before I viewed that last episode.

I agree that scene was totally contrived. they were playing in a meaningless juco bowl game...far below what they have their sights set on every year. nobody wanted to be there. hey! let's spice it up with some "controversy".

btw, that Isaiah wright doucher is NOT playing at d2 west Georgia this season. his current whereabouts are hard to determine.

We're going to find out how much Buddy can coach and keep a program together losing that many people.

If they are moving on to Garden City - I get stuff from that school all the time looking for players. It's the only JuCo outside CoD that contacts me.

Saw a tweet last night that Cahoma (so?), the team with the long losing streak featured in part of season 2, got a win last night to end that streak

Not that I would have predicted this, but something did always seem off with this kid:

Finally finished season 2. Totally think Buddy is a jagoff. All of the other coaches seemed like genuine good dudes, especially the OC.
