But after seeing the way Rich Rod handled the presser I am really really glad he is not my head coach. He is of course by the way totally in the right, I mean everyone in the NCAA pushes the limit on practices. But if Nick Saban was facing allegations against his practices, do you think he would get up there and get teary eyed?
Um...no. You could tell five year old Nick Saban that Santa Claus had been shot in the back of the head and he wouldn't have reacted that way. I'm certainly not saying emotions a bad thing and this isn't a "rargh, men act manly and don't cry!" thing.
But did anyone else get the "awkwaaaardd" vibe watching that presser? Did anyone else ask themselves, "Is that really a head coach defending his practice regimen and getting teary eyed?"
Thank God this guy passed.
