With all this talk about coaches...

Did anyone really think that Lloyd Carr was classy? wasn't he notorious for being callous and walking off the field without shaking hands?

Wasn't he the one who had the Big Ten officials in his back pocket?

Was Bo Schembecler a big teddy bear?

No - they were football coaches who, for better or worse, won a lot of football games the "old fashioned way". But the old ways are becoming more and more obsolete. Football coaches today need to be celebrities and "figureheads" as well as the managers their respective team(s).
