'Little League Parents Gone Wild'

Posted By on Thu, Dec 14, 2006 at 2:26 PM

That's how an ESPN columnist characterizes the sturm and drang at Fayetteville around the Springdale Fab Four and the rest of the football melodrama from coach Houston Nutt on down. A pox on all of them, he suggests:

By empowering a high school coach, his star players and apparently their pushy parents, too, Nutt has given the inmates the keys to the asylum. To an extent, he's brought this on himself. Nutt combined the ingredients of a melodramatic cocktail that's now being stirred by the straw of teenage celebrity.

It seems a desperate coach made some promises he's unwilling to keep to a group of players and parents who have enjoyed too much hype and too much adulation much too soon.
