    The Peter Principle is a proposition that states that the members of an organization where promotion is based on achievement, success, and merit will eventually be promoted beyond their level of ability. The principle is commonly phrased, "Employees tend to rise to their level of incompetence." In more formal parlance, the effect could be stated as: employees tend to be given increasing authority until they cannot continue to work competently.

    So promotion should not be based on merit? Lame.

    Perhaps the players were right last year and that the other QB (now at NCS) was the better QB and passer. Noticed one of our transfers to Louisville from same HS caught a touchdown pass in first game. We need a QB that does not make mental mistakes. On the last drive, our QB held the ball too long and took a sack, then lined up the team rather than spiking to kill clock, ..... We had no timeouts, as team took them in inappropriate situations earlier in the game.
