"The product of a system is really stupid." --Mike Leach

This is good times this morning.  In KAMC's Open Mike Night feature from Monday, there was the following quote from our captain:

"The product of a system is really stupid.   To say somebody is a product of a system is like saying, alright, they don't need their coaches, cause they can just go out and just run whatever. Who do you think decides for a guy to throw it, or how do they decide who to throw it to, or how do they decide whether or not they're going to hand it off?  I mean the product of a system suggests that you don't need coaches and just for a job security thing, if nothing else, I think you do need coaches, so I'm going to continue to coach, call plays and run drills.  But all of these people that aren't a products of a system don't need to practice, they don't need to worry about that, they don't need to worry about watching film, and they don't need to worry about what they're coaches say, because if there's no system if they're not doing things in a specified choreographed way, then why do they need to aggravate themselves with all that, they just need to show up for games and go do it." --Mike Leach

I don't know what to say after that. 

Yes, I did spend 15 minutes transcribing this morning, but the video and the transcript are priceless.
