One player at MAC media days forgot how long a football game is
Look, math is hard. Everyone knows that. So it's hard to blame the player at MAC media days who forgot what 15x4 was.
Won't embarrass the player, but at MAC Media Day today had one tell me his team wants to "play 48 minutes of tough football." NBA fan?— Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) July 23, 2014
Several people on Twitter pointed out that quarters in high school are 12 minutes long, so it's entirely possible that this player is regurgitating a cliché that was drilled into his skull by an unimaginative high school coach.
Or maybe he plays for a really laid back coach who wants his players to take it easy for 12 minutes. That's the kind of coach I'd want to play for.
