    Coach misunderstood the correlation of helmets and concussions.

    Assuming the coach is older than about 20, maybe the Duffman character was named after him.

    Jim Leavitt doesn't know what the fuss is all about.

    Not really sure in which universe the idea of hitting a 15-year-old kid in the head with a large 10-pound blunt instrument with several sharp metal proturberances would really seem like a good option.

    In my day the coach made players hit themselves in the helmet. Hard. With their teammates watching and laughing. Players did it willingly because they had a sense of discipline and accountability that you can't get from playing Grand Theft Auto 5.

    The wussification of America continues.

    "Duff Man wants to party down with the man who hit a high schooler with a helmet. I've got a bottomless mug of new Duff Extra Cold for Duffman Pannell!"

    Well, in my day was the heyday of head-slaps -- full arm-swing bolo-punches to the earhole -- being a fully legal and accepted technique for defensive linemen, but I still can't ever remember any coaches using helmets as 'maces' to smash us in the head.
