"Doc" Johnson, bizarre football coach and professor of philosophy, diagnoses scared freshwoman Sheila as "desperately in need of an identity crisis" and decides to give her one. Doc concurrently mentors Bob, a macho freshman who didn’t make the team. Meanwhile, new college President Jim decides that Doc must become a different person—one acceptable to donors. On another plane of existence, a mysterious and possibly
divine Judge tries Doc for corrupting the youth and more.
