I've read something on line about that. As far as I understand, it's not strictly necessary to have a degree to be a high school coach, it  depends on the state regulation (I couldn't find what are the regulations in Texas). In order to save money, most schools prefer to enroll coaches that have a degree and are qualified to teach, so that they can do both jobs (as it happened in the pilot itself with the first teacher Sheldon met, she was the volleyball coach and the English teacher), but for their most valuable teams, they can invest on a full-time coach. The salary varies  from school to school.Texas spends a lot in high school and college football, so I assume salaries are pretty good over there, but the Coopers moved in a place with a not very prestigious school, because George Sr. said he got a bad reputation and hence no good school would have hired him. I can see that they are in dire straits.

Thanks. It didn't occur to me that the coach needn't always be a teacher. Here ( England and Wales ) it's possible some of them might have timetables to teach nothing but  games (sports) and related subjects, but they'd be qualified teachers. At a school where I was a governor (don't know what the US term is, it's a member of a committee of  staff and local volunteers who make decisions about a school )  the football teacher also taught Latin because it made a change from standing around outdoors, he said. George said he got a bad reputation because he was honest and stood up for the regulations. Hmmmm ......... He was a bit of a drip in the staff meeting about Sheldon.

So the scruffy, punk, goth, tattoed and ill-turned-out students, and the non-enforcement of the dress and grooming code, not to mention the state of the toilets, are signs the school's not very prestigious ? That hadn't registered with me.  So that means they're not all like that, good. :)  I get it now. Thanks.

Great chance of Ian oneday to become a scientist.  Look how he has fun! :)

Perhaps he'll be like Mayim. She said it was her science lessons on set that got her interested in taking it up when it was time to leave Blossom and go to uni.

It's not very prestigious (hence, rich) because it's a public school in a little suburb, and  public schools in USA have less money than private ones to spend in their football team (or in anything else, for that matter...)

I notice crazy things... I'm a middle school counselor, so it's an occupational hazard.  Has anyone else noticed the difference in Iain Armitage's teeth?  Look at his teeth in the pilot, as opposed to the interviews he did with Jim when it premiered.  Interested to see if they are going to address it.

Yep, his second ones have come through now and have lined up nicely. He looks older in every way, because he is. They change so quickly ! Teeth of eight-to-nine-year-old children are not the only things that grow : their feet do it too, and cost money, which is an issue addressed in the pilot. That's how we learn there are affordability problems in the family. Growing children need bigger shoes, but not bigger mouths, fortunately, although the latter often develop anyway, totally free of charge. :)

George tells Sheldon he was fired for doing his job and reporting wrongdoing. That doesn't seem very likely. I'm a bit suspicious about the job loss and the move. Can school authorities fire a teacher for anything other than proven misconduct ?

Things happen that should not happen all the time.

I think it is great as young actors may wish to keep studying until university. It may be a useful tool for them if things would not keep sucessful in acting field.  And also because getting wiser about a field they love is always a great personal anchievment.

Btw, I wish it could air ep 2 tomorrow. Nov is far away and I am really curious about what is coming up to the young Sheldon at school and with his father.

Look on the bright side, we should have another blast of publicity with TBBT moving to Thursdays and YS returning.

From Entertainment Weekly (video in the link - Iain & Jim at 25 seconds in)

Stars of This Is Us, Young Sheldon, and more explain how to find your perfect fall TV match

Finding “the one” is hard. We get it. With so many television shows out there — both new and returning — how are you supposed to find the show that will make you feel whole? The one that will be your partner through thick and thin. The one that will never, ever betray you.

Well, we can’t promise all that, but we can promise that there are plenty of fish in the fictional sea, and to help you find your perfect match, EW gathered some of fall TV’s biggest stars to help you decide which show should win your heart… at least this year.

This isn't all that improbable in 1980's Texas. Football is almost a religion in Texas, and there have historically been major issues associated with 'recruiting' kids from other districts to change schools. Someone 'sabotaging' such efforts could well find themselves on thin ice job wise. Also, Texas is not a state where unions hold a lot of power. So, in that time it could have been much easier to fire a faculty member for less than well documented misconduct. Less so these days.

Thank you. So George could have been telling the truth. Wow.

From Deadline Hollywood

‘Young Sheldon’ Is Breakout Ratings Hit In Canada Too

The same night Young Sheldon premiered on CBS as the most watched comedy series debut in 6 years, The Big Bang Theory spinoff also had a big opening in Canada where posted the biggest debut for a new comedy in ten years with an average of 3.6 million viewers, 1.5 million of them in the adults 25-54 demographic.

And like in the U.S., Young Sheldon was paired with Big Bang and almost matched the veteran’s delivery, 3.8 million viewers, 1.7 million adults 25-54.

Following Young Sheldon’s strong debut on CBS, the network last week gave the single-camera comedy an early full-season pickup.

Yes, if they play their cards right, or they can make you so miserable you quit.

Questions and answers by Matt Roush.  The first is about the wait between first and second shows, and the second is mostly about the actress, Reagan Revord, who plays young Missy.

I agree with the person who asked Matt the question, I thought the actress who played Missy was very good.
