Players Not ‘Buying In’ to Schiano or is it the National Media?

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports joined Eric Lopez on Sports Talk 1040 and 1080 last week to talk about the NFL, and in particular, coaches that may be on the hot seat.

He brought up Greg Schiano, and said that he does not believe players have ‘bought in’ to his system.

Is this how the national media still perceives Schiano?

I joined Eric to talk about Cole’s remarks and to offer my own perspective as a local reporter who has had numerous conversations with players on and off the record about Schiano.

While Cole’s statement may have had some validity at the beginning of last year, I respectfully disagree with his assessment.

You can listen to the audio of my conversation with Eric below about why I do think players have bought in. We also talk about quarterback Josh Freeman.
