It is difficult to tell, but maybe RJ just needed to be taught the route running differently. Maybe he didn’t understand and couldn’t translate that on the field because he didn’t practice it enough. Dude could play and when he got the ball.

Could Dior not score a tiny house like the other guy? That was freakin cool.

I’ve been reading reviews on the season and it sounds like the coach is a little frustrated at how he came across with RJ and he wishes he was a little different with him. He also said cameras didn’t get everything. I really respected the coach this year.

I was not expecting the tangent with the kid living in the house for broke sci-fi and fantasy novelists, his grandmother writing a feminist retelling of the Arthurian legends, or the infamous numismatic expert with a dark side in his family history.

The filmmakers probably heard all that and didn’t think he was being serious. That was super weird. 
 

All around, this season had no hateable people IMO. The coach wasn’t a jackass, and the players featured all were just trying to make the most of their situation. I can’t even remember the loser’s name, but there was that former GT quarterback at Indy last year that refused to go into the game one time because he was mad about his playing time. Should’ve kicked his sorry ass off the team that second. Contrast that with 5’8 Dior that moved to QB to help his team out & probably slept in his car after the game. Night & day difference in character. Also loved the part at the end of an episode where Dior talked about how football was his therapy session.

Even the prima-donna CB still showed for practice and was encouraging of teammates while out for the rest of the season.

Just finished it.  Another entertaining season.  Very sad that it was the last one for football.

So I just caught the newest season and had not seen the prior seasons.  Loved the newest season.  So I started back on Season 1.  Holy hell this Coach is an ass by comparison.

Just saw the fight with the ref.  What a clown.  Tells his kids to be above it.  Then five seconds later is fighting a ref (even though the ref started the physical stuff).

and now the coach calling timeout up 40 with less than a minute causes the most ridiculous fight.......Such an asshole.  Granted the other team started some shit beating up a manager before the game started.   

All he has to do is let the clock run and they at least make it until halftime.  I'm sure it blows up in the second half regardless.

Coach Beam’s crooked shaven mustache at times drives me crazy.   Also the stud CB they call Ray saying in the barber shop “man if I go to Colorado we play at texas a&m next year, that’s crazy!”   Like that would be the coolest thing ever, I was like wtf lol.  How do Oakland boys come to thinking that’s amazing over anything else on Colorado’s schedule?  Fucking Dior needs to get a shot somewhere but is also being too proud to ask for help offered from many people, which I understand but it’s dumb to do.

Dame Lillard's brother was quarterback for coach Beam at Laney in 2005 and young Dame would show up to games and talk smack from the sidelines while his brother played.

3 episodes into it and I really like it. This coach is very likable unlike that fucking jerk off from the last 2 Kansas seasons. I actually pull for and like these players. I didn't know what to expect moving to a major metro area from the very small towns in Mississippi and Kansas but it's very good so far. Dior really stepped up to fill in for QB and has gotten their season back on track. Dude is pretty much homeless and balling on the field. Props to him. Shows a lot of character to go through all that and still be able to perform at that level.

Just wait another couple seasons, the coaching douche level goes up a notch or two.

New coach was nice and players were respectful. I enjoyed the season. But I do miss the disaster that the first two coaches were. I prefer the destructive douchebag coach to the new one, can’t lie haha

During the 2018 season, the main rival of Indy, Garden City CC had a player collapse and die of heat exhaustion while practicing.

I just started watching the first season. I am two and a half episodes in. The coach is one of the biggest jagoffs of all time.

But damn, it's a depressing show. These kids have just about no chance at succeeding. It's sad. But some of their backgrounds are horrific and it is understandable.

Back in the 1990s I was around the Pitt team a lot and we had a running back from East Mississippi C.C. Extremely talented and productive at that level. One day at summer cap at the Pitt-Johnstown campus Coach Majors and I were talking about his background and he said it was going to be very difficult to keep him because of his history. He had seen his mother shot and grandmother stabbed. Sort of like that Ollie kid in the first season.

Just sad.

Kind of wish they would hit up emcc again or somewhere similar.

I wish they'd do a season in Texas. Blinn or Navarro would both make for interesting settings.
