Jeff Walz is the women’s basketball coach at the University of Louisville. He was doing his post game press conference after losing to the University of Maryland. It turned out to be a no holds barred denunciation of the current generation that expects everything to be handed to them without having to work for it.

He then went on to discuss society’s decision to hand out trophies to nearly everyone who plays a game now regardless of whether they win or lose.

The Roanoke Times reported:

“You’ve got to have a will. You’ve got to have a will,” he said. “Right now the generation of kids that are coming through, everybody gets a damn trophy, OK? You finish last, you come home with a trophy. You kidding me? I mean, what’s that teaching kids? It’s OK to lose. And unfortunately, it’s our society. It’s what we’re building for. It’s in life. You know, Everybody thinks they should get a good job. No, that’s not the way it works. But unfortunately that’s what we are preparing for. Because you finish fifth, you walk home with this nice trophy, parents are all excited.”

Is it only in sports that students get true life lessons? The classroom does not seem to be fulfilling their obligations. Maybe those so called professors can learn from Coach Walz.
