With the recent shocking revelation that Jim Tressel is not the pious model of integrity that he'd have us believe, I wonder which of these three coaches (in no particular order) is the biggest hypocrite:
1. Jim Tressel - The Ted Haggard of NCAA Football
He wrote a book titled, "Life Promises for Success; Promises from God on Achieving Your Best". He quotes Wadsworth in one of his preachy books as follows, "It takes less time to do the right thing than to explain why you did it wrong." He then lied to his bosses, the NCAA, the media and the fans about what he knew, when he knew it and why he didn't act on it. Why are the preachy ones always so full of shit?
2. Mark Dantonio - The Warden
Sept 1, 2007 - He began a shit-talking spat with the University of Michigan by offering a "moment of silence" when asked for his thoughts on Michigan's loss to App St.
Nov 3, 2007, Michigan beats State and has a mock "moment of silence" on their 50 yard line. Mike Hart makes the "little brother" comment.
November 5, 2007, Dantonio complains about Michigan's "moment of silence" and personally insults Mike Hart. Perhaps he forgot that he started the entire spat.
Of course, the "Dean of Discipline" has had a little issue with doling out...discipline.
3. Tom Izzo - The NIT Mascot
Tom likes to complain. When Darius Morris broke Izzo's press and scored a lay-up to take a massive SEVEN POINT LEAD with time running down in Michigan's second win over MSU in the 2010 season, Izzo took issue. He complained after the game that Morris should not have scored those points and that Morris deserved getting a ball thrown at his head. While the players acted like adults and dismissed the situation, Izzo would have none of it. Of course, Izzo chose to forget the way he kept his starters in to hold a 50 point lead over Michigan nearly ten years ago; the way he kept his starters in to throw last second alley-oops up 17 a couple years back; and how he ran plays to pad Draymond Green's stats against PSU (getting Roe hurt in the process). Tom Izzo cares deeply about padding stats and running up the score...unless a sophomore from Michigan breaks his press in a close game. Tom, get the fuck off our court.
Curious to see who the MGoFolks deem the biggest hypocrite...
