Izzo the Ultimate Politician?

Ok, first off, this is not a post about politics, so slow your roll. It is, however, a sentiment that I have had for a long time about the beloved coach of the Michigan State Agricultural College's Prison Deferrment Program. The local Michigan media as well as many national pundits, consider Tom Izzo an icon and a man of great integrity. The last coach to be thought of with such blind disregard used to coach the pro football team in Columbus. After watching last nights presser where this "leader of men" vomited all over the press corps with foul language and a lack if respect for the team that just beat him, I became enraged. His first 2 sentences took all credit away from Beilein and the boys when he said that his team "gave" Michigan a 10 point lead. Really? I seem to remember your team actually taking shots after each subsequent Michigan score. It just reminded me of what a pompous and arrogant prick he really is. It also reminded me of the first time I ever met him. He was on a "speaking tour" about 8 years ago and he paid a visit to my employer, Coca Cola. His motivational methods were absolutely embarrassing. After listening to this fraud curse and swear at a room of executives and sales professionals for 35 minutes, it occurred to me that this man had as much integrity as any other blowhard phony with a Napoleon complex and something to prove. I'm curious to know if anyone else had any insight into the subject? It will not surprise me when he goes down in flames and scandal. The only question will be if it happens before Thad Motta.
