At University of Louisville women’s basketball games, I sit where I can watch head coach Jeff Walz. All by himself, he is worth the price of admission. He gets excited. About everything. If basketball is a dance, he is the prima ballerina — arms in the air one moment, hands on hips the next. Lips twisted for a growl. Shouting, shouting, shouting! Yet when U of L made a video of him inviting students to use the school’s new online course-evaluation program, he read from a script. Way boring.
