Excellent post, could not agree more. It was a long time ago but this flashback fits right in with your assessment.
I played on the last baseball team at NAU in 1981.
They had already signed off on the death of the baseball program when we visited Packard to play Brocks team. They were ranked number 1 and were sporting a 40-9 record at that time.
Brocks teams ALWAYS played with tremendous swagger and arrogance.
As I noted in an earlier post, you couldn't walk into Packard without feeling their dominance and longstanding success.
We beat Kevin Dukes, Stan Holmes, and Mike Sodders that night 5-4.
After the final out, we went to home plate for the traditional handshake. As his players approached the dish, Brock yelled for them to return to the dugout. Sportsmanship? LOL, he was having none of that. The guy hated losing, full stop.
Brocks team finished 55-13 and went on to win the National Championship that year.
Hopefully we get a coach that hates losing. :)
