Considered him a top coach. New respect added. Not easy to make a decision like that with a player of that caliber. Good for him for holding firm to the rules.

Interesting facts about the time it took Florida to even the series.

During that time planes went from being launched by a catapult to being able to have a human living aboard a fucking space station.
