I do actually like Coach better this season, although when "old Coach" rears his head with the hugging, I start rolling my eyes again. At least he didn't send her off with some obscure quote from Confucious. I did like his sharpness when dealing with Brandon's paranoia. He's the veteren here, and saying it was going to get a whole lot crazier and you have to deal with it was very smart. Hopefully, though, he won't drag Brandon to the end with him. It would be good for HIS game but bad for my viewing pleasure. Wish Edna had gone straight to Coach after Brandon confessed to her to 'set the record straight.'
I do agree though that Brandon has some skewed ideas about what it means to be 'good' and just can't seem to find balance in his life. Until he matures a little he's going to continue to have a very rough road.
