Posts like this. You stake out a point in your subject line, and then spend the rest of the post either mitigating it or obfuscating it with irrelevancies.
You rail about "secondary conversations", but those are the conversations where the people who have adopted actual, specific philosophical positions use those positions to determine their opinions on related topics. If you think Brian Kelly should use a blocking back in the ground game because you believe he should tailor his offense to be more like Saban's, then that's what you say. It doesn't make it "less useful and far off the mark", it's the natural progression of adult conversation.
