Isolating the problem

A conversation overheard this morning:

JOCK: "I've got too much work! I gotta write a ten-page paper by three o'clock."

COACH: "Ah. And you've had this for what, six weeks?"

JOCK: "Like, two or three days."

COACH: "What course?"

JOCK: "History."

COACH: "Oh. Who teaches it?"

JOCK: "I dunno."
