N.O. - At least admit you are disappointed in his first 2 months. You, more than anyone, have been pimping this hire and talking up Daziani's recruiting. you have to admit that he thus far hasn't lived up to your expectations.

NotoriousOrangeI think Addazio will turn out to be a really strong hire and in many ways the Anti-Spaz :
* Great recruiter, who feels recruiting success is dictated by the head coach's actions, and the buck stops with him.

Like I said, our best hope at this point is that the intelligent kids we're recruiting are hopelessly dumb and fall for this junk. I'm sorry if that pisses on your parade, but talking a lot and actually being able to accomplish it are two separate things. I'd rather have seen someone who looked serious about winning rather than desperately trying to check off every box on everyone's list.
He has been the National recruiter of the year and a great
recruiter everywhere he has been.
Eagle05 do you think it makes more sense to take 20 years of recruiting Dwight Freeney, Aaron Hernandez, Mike Pouncey, Will Hill Sharif Floyd, and 75 others like them and as proof of his recruiting prowess? Or your analysis that only dumb kids would listen?
Let's give it a rest a bit when talking about the recruits he brought to Florida. Has their recruiting dried up since? I am NOT a recruiting weirdo and will not do some Florida star analysis pre-Daz, Daz, and post Daz.
How about his recruiting for Syracuse & ND? He was just as good there. How about the fact that both of his full classes at Temple were rated at the top of the MAC? When you see the same thing for 20 years it is probably not luck.
I think Addazio is more likely toflip recruits than Diaco (but I think highly of Diaco as well)

climb to 6-6 or climb to acccg?
Will take 4 years but back to the ACCCG
then he was not the right hire... the right hire could go 7-6 next year and then BCS game the following year
Haven't you and most posters (including me) been down on the last year of Jags/first 1/2 year of Spaz recruiting and all subsequent years of Spaz recruiting?
How would you analyze the current talent level on the roster?
the depth is not there but there is still plenty of front line talent to win 6 games in a shit conference and get to some shit bowl game (especially with a senior QB).
My question was more about your reference to right coach to BCS in year 2
i think the right coach could do it in the ACC. he would need to recruit his ass off but not impossible. would also have to give some reps to the backup QB to prepare for the following year. we would get blown out in the BCS game but thats irrelevant. my point is the ACC is not good and we are not that far behind.
i personally think the talent is not as bad as most make it out to be. the starters are serviceable for the most part. the backups is where the talent gap is noticeable. you could scheme around a lot of the weaknesses... the secondary, OL, DL. probably employ a lot of delayed LB blitzing to make up the lack of pass rush by the DL and play cushion in the secondary to prevent giving up the big play.
we get smart, tough, players willing to work. the right coach could lead them to big things quickly. i think if we had gotten Diaco he could have flipped a lot of the Mass talent back to BC and maybe some others in NJ/OH.
- but it still doesn't lead to BCS in year 2 for either of them[/size][/b]
HJS I like the Addazio hire, I think he will turn out to be a strong hire for BC. I think he is in many ways the polar opposite of Spaziani. The last four years have been a downward spiral and I think he is a coach who is hungry, capable and will make my days at Alumni fun again.
I would prefer BC to flip 5 - 5 star recruits. Despite the fact it didn't happen, the first 60 days have gone about as I expected.
You were pimping for him 4 years ago as well. In the interim he:
* Had 6 months of experience as Florida's head coach during Urban's months in the wilderness
* Was named ESPN's recruiter of the year for bringing in the #1 class in the country while Urban quit and looked unlikely to come back
* Had 2 years at Temple as Head Coach
* Recruited a strong staff for this gig
He is a lot more prepared for the BC head coaching job now than he was 4 years ago when you were high on him.
Of course he is not a guaranteed success.
I answered your question so please answer one for me. What do you get from portraying/twisting/or making up -- every bit of BC info into the most negative light possible.
