He accepted the job without ever setting foot in fort collins. that seems like something you'd want to kick the tires on in person.

To a guy who would otherwise be picking up hubcaps, having a tire to kick means the case is desmithed.

I like Fort Collins - some good beer, a decent amount of stuff to do, and the Medicine Bows right down the road. But it's definitely not for everyone, and if you are a pizza-lovin ketchup-drowning TALIAN FAMILY WHOS GOING TO LOVE EACH OTHER HARD it might not be your scene.

The which way are the mountains comment was great. I also like that when he accepted he was numb and realized he had to tell them he was excited.

It is such a weird fit. Maybe it will work. I would think his agent or family would have advised to take tv money for a year and then make a run at UConn. The guy had five days to turn his world upside down.

I get that he’s from Connecticut, but CSU is a much better/easier job.

This. He can get players at CSU. At UCONN he is recruiting against Villanova, James Madison, UNH and Maine, but having to play a D1 schedule. UCONN is a flaming dumpster fire that Urban Meyer himself would have a difficult time reversing. While I think Dazzler is a terrible strategist on the football field, he is pretty damn good at moving his career forward. He won at Temple with Golden Al's players in his first year and then jumped up to the BC job after a pretty bad season (blaming it on Temple's historic weakness, blame that was belied when Rhule took over and won big). He held on at BC for 7 years, surviving the abysmal AD who hired him for a few years, even after anyone who was paying attention could have told you he was a disastrous tactician with a mediocre ceiling. Jumping to CSU makes sense. The MWC is down right now as Boise State ain't the same program it was under Peterson and Fresno's coach just retired. He probably just wants to make it for five years, get Louie some good experience and move him on to a buddy in the P5 (maybe Dan Mullen) and then he can retire and spend his days walking around in Bermuda shorts, black sock, sandals and slathering ketchup on everything.

Not a surprise, really, but I noted as I watched the last episode of Decide To Fly today (post Pitt game, from a couple weeks back) Addazio is no where to be seen, not even in the background of game shots.

Something to ponder:
Montiero, Allen, W Ray, Lindstrom, R Smith, J Smith, Harris, Denis, Walker & Torres all played as FR on a 3-9 team. Daz would still be our coach if they had redshirted.

Foresight was never Daz' strong suit.

Also, Ray Smith was just signed to the 49ers practice squad.

took some nice shots at BC:

https://theathletic.com/1646896/2020/03 ... n-college/

Speaking of those facilities, they’ve got a lot of new stuff there like the stadium. What have you made of it since you’ve seen it and how does it compare even to Boston College?

Well, the stadium and the facilities inside are better. It’s fantastic. Putting this together, the foresight is really unbelievable. I think these are Power 5 facilities. A great opportunity to recruit, to use your facilities to help train and develop your players.


How do you look back at your time at BC and what you accomplished there?

Well, we went to six bowls in seven years after inheriting a program that won two or three games and we went to a bowl game immediately. Stayed down that bowl game path … I thought we were considered one of the toughest, most physical teams in the conference. We had respect there. We were going to bowl games every year. Now, we’re playing on the tougher side of the ACC when the ACC was at its strongest — three national champions in six years. So that’s the level of competition that we played against. We did that with the lowest levels of everything that you can have, meaning the lowest facilities, the least financing, toughest admissions. We rebuilt the program, went to bowl games, competed at a high level. A couple of those years, lost our starting quarterback in the process but still won seven games.

So I’m proud of that. It was a program with no issues off the field, high GPAs, high character, left behind five all-ACC players returning. Put seven players the year before in the NFL. That’s a lot. So I’d say the recruiting was done well. I’d say the character of the team was high, and I’d say we’re going to bowl games, winning and representing the values of the university. So I’m proud of that.

Some former BC players tweeted some negative things after the coaching change, and then others came out to defend you. What did you make of all that?

You know, you’re dealing with 100-something guys a year. It’s hard to determine what everybody’s agenda is. I don’t want to get into it with social media or people have something on their mind and, instead of having a face-to-face conversation, it goes on the internet. All I can tell you is this: Every place I’ve been as an assistant and as a head coach, we’ve had fabulous relationships and a great culture. Whether it’s BC, Florida, Temple, wherever, long-lasting relationships with players and coaches. It’s hard to have a career as long as I’ve been in it and that not be the case. I’ve always been a players’ coach, a guy that did everything I could for the team. …

I took a program over, my first year — if you think I’m going to get into the details, I’m not. Just realize there’s always more behind the story. I’m not going to go all tit for tat. I have all the information. But I like to think I’m the adult here and I’m not going to get into all that garbage and start revealing truths. It’s just not worth it. You just move on and put your head on the pillow and say, ‘I did everything I could for that young man.’ You just can’t make everybody happy. I don’t think you ever will. You’ve got a job to do.

Coming into Colorado State now, what do you take from what worked at BC and what might you do differently?

It’s just a different job. If you’re talking about working hard on developing fundamentals, developing toughness, going out recruiting within Colorado and then extending and trying to bring in qualified student-athletes, that’s all the same, right? That’s what I believe in. I’ve always believed in toughness, fundamentals, culture and high character. Then I hired a staff that believes in that and represents that, so those are the same. I thought our teams were really well conditioned and really strong, so our strength-and-conditioning philosophy is the same.

Chuck Heater’s my defensive coordinator. We’ve been together before. Chuck is going to bring in a scheme that has been great for him that I believe in. Offensively, Joey Lynch is our coordinator. I’m an offensive guy, spend a lot of time in that room. Joey did a fabulous job at Ball State and our philosophies are very similar. On offense and defense, we’re going to make sure we utilize what we do best — Where are our best players? Where can they make the biggest plays? — and feature those players. When I was at BC, in my seven years, the toughness aspect never changed. But Year 1, we were a power offense. Year 2, we were a spread option offense. Year 3, we were a tempo offense. We tried to adapt to what our players were. Within the structure of discipline and toughness and fundamentals, I think you shape your schematics to fit the talent level of your team. These are just some philosophical things that are not going to change.

most coaches would take the high road and say they only want to talk about their current team, but not this ahole. he only got the csu job because of his buddy urban and the hiring has been universally panned.

I read that Addazio transcript a couple times. I don't think he said anything bad about BC. He tooted his own horn, said great things about Colorado State, and said great things about himself, but I don't think he denigrated BC. In fact, he said very flattering things about the academic achievements of the players at BC.

I'm glad he's gone. I would have fired him years earlier. He's gone now so it doesn't matter. And I don't see him bad mouthing BC. I've moved on and I think Addazio has as well.

It's not that bad, but I think it's interesting that he says CSU has better facilities.

Their stadium is smaller (their main facilities web page says that capacity is 41,200, but the link to the stadium lists it as having a capacity of 36,500 (maybe standing room in the beer garden accounts for the difference?), the weight room is only 800 sq. ft. bigger than at BC, and their indoor practice facility is smaller (and looks vastly inferior).

He's just a grouchy guy - nbd... but also made it easier to can him. Christian is helped by being liked within the athletic department.
