In all the coverage the story has been getting, has there been any questions asked of current and former coaches? Has anybody asked Meyer, Weis, Carroll, Tressel, Paterno, etc.? Most coaches probably will not answer any questions, but I think if they did, they would provide the best context. We have seen the reports of players admitting that they go over the limit on their own (Tebow is the one I remember most), but coaches know and can explain how much they push all their players.
Lou Holtz is probably the most visible former coach, but he's been out of the game for probably too long to be of much use. That and he's rambling and incoherent. I haven't seen anything, but what has he said about hte situation.
