I wonder if one of the better sells for iCan'tCoach is that, given the state of the program, there really isn't a safe job and almost anyone can come in and make an impact.

Here are my thoughts on this recruiting class......I could really give a crap. I don't care where these guys came from, how many stars they had by their name on some internet recruiting blog, what their grades were or anything else for that matter. I've suffered through almost 25 years of horrible football at UofA. We need to start winning ASAP. If this is the class that gets the winning going, then God bless them. I'm more interested in what they do on the field rather than what they look like on the internet. This program needs to start WINNING!

So does that leave him one year or two to play the Decoy position for the Zips?
Edit: I also wonder if he hung out with Ryan while in Iowa City, and has any Bain stories he can share with the lads for inspiration.

Yeah. I am hoping this is just filler until the coach shows up.

Edit: Yes, Ianello up after the commercials. It's safe to tune in now.

I've seen highly touted recruiting classes come to Akron with the end result being kids leaving, a new coaching staff and an empty stadium. The kids we bring in are talented, but Akron will never win unless they want to. That team in 05 worked their ass off and never gave up. Not in the MAC title game, not in the Motor City bowl. If these kids want to come in and work hard and get 20,000+ at Info then they are more than capable of doing it. If they want to go through the motions, not listen, leave when things get tough, then they will play in front of no one. It's their choice. I have faith this will be the class that turns it around, but then again I've been saying that for 10 years. One MAC championship every decade isn't going to cut it. We all see how this community supports a team that works hard. (Notice how I didn't say a winner).

Ianello sounded upbeat, showed some personality. I think he ripped Rush Limbaugh too. Explained the 12th man thing.

What hard working team do they support that doesn't win?
