LSU’s Kragthorpe Wants “Money Players”

Good luck finding a coach who’ll tell you he doesn’t want clutch players.  They all do.  But when it comes to a new offensive coordinator, folks want to hear every word he has to say.  And they latch onto those words awfully tight.

A personal favorite of mine is when folks brag that their new O-coordinator “plans to get the ball to his playmakers in space!”  But what coordinator out there wants to give the ball to schlubs in traffic?

Ah, but back to clutch players… LSU’s Steve Kragthorpe says he wants ‘em.

“I told the players the other day, ‘If someone hands you a check for $10,000 and says you get to invest this,’ you’re not going to throw it in whatever investment you hear about first.  You’re going to do some research.  That’s how I call my game.  I’m going to put my money where the money players are.”

(Sidenote — Considering just how many NCAA investigators are cruising the back roads of the SEC these days, Kragthorpe might want to watch how he words things.)

“I’m kind of deaf to guys who want the ball,” the coach said.  “I’m a visual person.  I want to see you make plays in practice.  If it’s third-and-five, I’m going to try to put the ball in the guys’ hands I think have produced in practice to the point where I think he will produce in a game setting.”

Nothing out of the ordinary there.
