Big 12 coordinator: "I don't think there's any such thing as adversity on a football field."

As coaches, we oftentimes like to talk about how our players face adversity on the football field and during the peaks and valleys of games.

However, one Big 12 coordinator isn't a believer that players encounter real adversity on the field.

After practice yesterday, Texas Tech defensive coordinator Keith Patterson provided a brief opinion in how adversity isn't truly witnessed in football, and provided a brief lesson on perspective in the process.

"I don't believe there is any such thing as adversity on a football field," Patterson explained. "I tell our guys there is no such thing as a crisis. There are highs and lows of emotion, but there is no such thing as adversity on a football field."

Every Thursday, Patterson shared that they have a Special Spectator come out to practice (like Will Jordan pictured below) "Every Thursday, we have that Special Spectator, and to me, I say, 'You want to see the face of adversity...that's adversity."
