And, as you can imagine, if you’re doing a lot of kicking at an opponent, eventually you’re going to shatter a shin bone. And, in order to repair that shattered shin bone (it just hurts reading that, doesn’t it?) doctors will install a…

So, as some us determined from his press conference this week where he tried to explain “the science” Coach B does not have a degree in one of the applied science. Or even a minor.
