Ed Orgeron was a Cajun hot mess who matured into a better man.
You read up on him and though he was Sonny’s DL coach at Miami he did not initially learn very well about being a man and Coach until much later.
Steve Addazio is mature and based upon his history he did not start with the same limitations of what it takes to be a man or Coach.
We shall see how he does in embracing coaching at CState. Other than Sonny and Hughes we haven’t had “Great” coaches we have had a handful of “Good” coaches so for the interim I think I’ll let Steve coach.
Addazio seems to try and lock up and send a message to local D-1 players securing the Gatorade player Hollens. He realizes Boosters, Fans and Alumni want to win so he will kowtow to a few of us for a bit? But face it like Sonny you have to be a friend for him to befriend you. They both can recognize a jackass when they see one.
(Earle was good not great here, though he was and is a Great Hall of Fame Coach.)
