I feel the stupidity of most people involved in the show is just next level. I don't mean that anyone is necessarily dumb intelligence-wise; we all have our strengths and weaknesses. I just mean that the people involved make some of the dumbest decisions for their own reasons. I also don't mean just the players.
It is a mystery to me that the players would act certain ways knowing what the technology is capable of during filming (being that they are young and understand most of it). If they are trying to get a D1 offer somewhere, why would they do the things they are doing? They are allowing themselves to be filmed driving wedges between coaches and teammates. What teams would want someone who spends time badmouthing coaches or teammates? They show themselves demonstrating a lack of interest in the very things that are required at D1 schools. Not all athletes at D1 schools are pre-med or anything, but pulling Fs in various subjects and barely being able to communicate can't be a big seller to a big-time school. If you are Markiese King, is talking/bragging about concussions really a great idea with the scrutiny that football is facing over head injuries?
I get that these people are still relatively young. For the ones that are legit D1 talents, though, I don't understand how they don't understand that 1 good season of effort will translate into offers. It is a really good example of the difficulty coaches and staff are facing at the big colleges. If these players struggle with the JUCO college experience, imagine what it would be like in a big city with everyone going crazy over you.
I am only a few episodes in, so I don't know how everyone ended up yet. Markiese King, as an example of all of the above, looked like a pretty solid receiver that could probably make a splash at a bigger school. Instead of just pushing hard through a good season--regardless of the team's record--he just completely shits all over himself by rushing back from concussions and trying the whole tough guy thing.
