Coach Bum Phillips passes away at 90

Legendary football coach Bum Phillips passed away today at the age of 90.  Sports Illustrated writer Peter King shared a thought from Phillips typical of him - words that seem simple at first but over time are profound:
Bum was correct then and, perhaps, even more so now. In the era of saber-metrics and new levels of analysis, coaches can easily get caught up in valuing what they know more than what their athletes do.
