SEC Football: Where "Patience" Is a Dirty Word

Daniel SpratlinContributor IDecember 11, 2008

John Adams of The Knoxville News Sentinel believes that “patience” is a thing of the past in the SEC.

Looking at how coaching tenures are getting shorter and shorter, it’s hard to argue that.  But as we’ve said before, the reason for the lack of patience all comes down to cash.

When coaches make more money, fans expect more wins.  It’s as simple as that.

If fans aren’t happy, they stop going to games.  When that happens, coaches like Phillip Fulmer are let go. 

Judging from the attendance at LSU this year, Les Miles might want to be paying attention.
