I just started the first episode. This season is following Independence Community College in Independence, Kansas. Their QB is Malik Henry, formally of FSU and as the OP said, Kingston Davis, formally of Michigan. I loved the first two seasons of LCU, so here's to hoping this season will be as entertaining with brawls on the field.

I recommended the first season to a guy at work who after I thought about it, really wasn't going to be able to relate to this show. He is a football fan but he likes baseball more than football.

I thin his issue is that some people aren't going to be interested in a reality show about poor Americans or people who have been in trouble, regardless of race. On the other hand, I wonder if his love for baseball would interest him in a similar show if was about baseball prospects in the Dominican Rebublic. It would be an interesting experiment.

1.  I love LCU

2.  I love baseball

3.  I would love a show about the baseball prospects in the DR.

MLive had a story about baseball in the DR a few days ago.  It was very interesting.

Just watched the 1st episode of this season, and my observations. 

1. The coach is an idiot

2. The coach isn't very good

3. This is gonna be a very good season

4. The coach might lose this team.

Just watched the first episode. Impressive that you can get blown out like that by a community college in Iowa while you have a roster of D1 players. Might not have the best coaching. TBD

so far it sums up why some 5* athletes the fan base sees as an absolute need, turn out to be...absolute NEED to GO...elswhere. In the end, they are 17-year-old boys, and many were coddled and pampered all through high school. When they arrive on a college campus like UM or FSU the star power is still there, but the gives two fucks is gone. Malik as a prime example, YEP he's football smart, YEP he's gifted...but I'd have punched that fucker in the mouth the first ten minutes of practice. Sorry...you may be smart, but if the coach has a plan, you WORK with the plan...that's why it's called a plan. The pieces eventually fit together and that kid is a dangerous tool in the machine.

The thing I never understood about football - and I played 30 yrs ago - is why coaches think that tantrums motivate players. Nothing like having a grown man scream at a teenager about the teenager's bad attitude.

I agree personally...having played 30+ years ago too, some kids were motivated by that, some where shut down/pissed off, and not in a good way. For me, I hated being screamed at and made a fool. We had other coaches who would grab you by the pads...yep it was normal, and no we didn't actually explode or die, or anything THEN...they would get in your ear, ask what you did wrong, ask how you could fix it, and modestly kick you in the butt and move forward. Kids are dumb...they are kids. They want a boundary, but they do NOT respond to constant yelling, and more importantly, being randomly screamed at, and never sure where that line is.

Granted, from the episodes I have seen, Kingston Davis is a lazy POS and may or may not have issues I know nothing about...but how do you fail four classes at a JUCO? The coach nailed it when he said show up, shut your phone off, sit in the front, turn in your work and you will manage a C. Wholy crap how complicated is that when you are truly facing your last chance?

The QB Malik is a PUNK...he clearly has been told he's a special snowflake his entire life, and has told authority what to do...he will struggle in life beyond football. Sorry, I am all about speaking your mind, but there is a time and place you simply have to suck it up, and roll with the flow for the bigger prize.

The coach is a joke. These kids need structure and a positive role model and he just wants them all to know he is from Compton and is just as immature as they are.

I binged this on a flight to Asia over the weekend. Anyone else finish it?

Kingston Davis...didn’t do himself any favors. Good thing UAB snapped him up before it aired. 

Highly entertaining season, the change of scenery was welcome. Years ago I spent time in the Coffeyville/Independence area and there are some great people there.
