ONE LESS: Coach Bubba Johnson has guided his D.B. Wesson High football team to its tenth Lengua Loco County championship. “Scoop” Johnson wrote in the Underbelly Prerecorder, “Unfortunately, that’s one less season before Coach retires to his cabin in the Montaña Mountains.”

“Scoop” should have written, “That’s one season fewer.” Less always refers to quantity or volume, as in less language skill or less gas in the tank. Fewer always refers to actual numbers, such as fewer redundancies or fewer birds than least year. No exceptions.

After Bubba, great coaches will be one fewer, and high school football, the unofficial religion of Texas, will be poorer for it.
