this strip had such a great build up, then chad comes along with “fooooood”.
“This is bad comedy.” -Leonard Nimoy 3/10
Hello everyone. The problem with the team is they have no motivation. They don’t have passion. Also their coach isn’t very good. Anyways have a great day!
this is a 7/10 not bad and actually pretty funny
iv’e been up all night waiting for this
What if Nate imagined it was a small, helpless Mrs. Godfrey?
Ooh, don’t try to motivate people…get’s ’em all riled up and such
It’ll be worth it if they win. Remember when Nate was imaging baseballs as Godfrey heads and he was motivated to hit them?
I was Dee Dee the drama queen PREMIUM MEMBER but I changed my name.
i love chad
They always end up off topic
What if everyone had to pretend the ball is a cat? Then Nate would run away from the ball like Cinderella..
Tough life, Coach Calhoun.
This reminds me of the strip where Coach John said he stole Nate’s Cheez Doodles as a motivation tactic and Nate slammed him on the floor.
It can be whatever you want, Chad.
When I played soccer, I imagined that the ball.. was a ball.
Good idea! Get your cat back and then kick the heck out of it :D
Oh, I get! It’s because Chad likes food and that’s all there is to his character! Such brilliant phenomenal comedic writing! There’s no way anyone else could have come up with something as genius as this!
Hi, I am pretty early today! Woo-hoo!
It’s weird seeing a ‘coach’ that doesn’t weight 300 lbs.
Alternative ending: Instead of Chad bringing up food, Nate would have the ball (the ‘comic book’), but Francis views the ball as his cat. The end result is them tugging at the ball vigorously for their ‘comic book’ and ‘cat’ until a referee steps in
Coach should have expected the conversation would go that direction.
Why is everyone up so freaking EARLY???
“I hate cats.”
“Well just imagine the cat is the ball and you hit the cat with your bat”
For me, it would be a plate of spaghetti (Don’t judge)
What happened to, “1! 2! Win! For you! 3! 4! Win! Some more!”?
I had to process and is CHAD GOING TO EAT THE BALL-
Yes Chad, it can be a donut
When this is over Francis, kick your cat at Nate’s head for me;
This isn’t a name game
Well, I’d try harder if it was a donut.

It’s funny because it’s true, as every teacher knows.
I love strips like this :)
Different things motivate different people. It IS part of the coaches job to figure out how to get the best out of each of his players…..
I got the drip.
Coach needs to keep a tally of how many times that’s happened.
Great idea, coach, after all what’s a meta phor?
I would imagine my sister’s head. Or maybe a kid a school.
All jokes aside, I think Chad in this strip shows how watered-down the characters have gotten. For example, Nate is the egotistical jerk who sucks at sports, Chad is the fat kid who makes potty jokes, and Francis is the nerd. Back in the day, Nate had a passion for cartooning, painting, and even chess and made a band. This made him feel more human, rather than a way to make stale jokes. Francis was clearly shown as Nate’s friend, and supported Nate despite their differences, which made him less annoying. I get this is a children’s strip, but comics like Peanuts have shown that strips made for kids can have interesting characters. For example, Lucy can be the stereotypical bully, but her love for Schroeder and Rerun showed that she had a soft side, once again making her less like a stereotypical bully and more like a misguided child.
fun fact: Nate has never had a birthday in these comic strips
For me it would be the World cup trophy
hello GoComics users, I am becoming a full-time reader so this is my last comment. I will reply to many comments though.
I would want mine to be a cat too because then I could hit it with a bat!
Also, for people saying that “why would Francis hit his cat with a bat”, look at the first panel. They are running and wearing cleats so their playing soccer not baseball
Francis is going to kick his cat eh? Gotcha, 7/10 rating for me personally.
pretty good 9/10
Not sure I agree with the advice.
if it was a donut, chad would be the mvp
big nate isnt big (book theory)
This is not a poll.
every halftime loses control
I don’t know CAN it?
Or maybe a Twinky!
