Steve Addazio, Temple? Really??!

In one fell swoop, Temple football is back to being Temple football. Which is to say, Temple football returned to irrelevance today by hiring a man who did the impossible: failing to score points with Urban Meyer's offense and Florida's recruits.

His name is Steve Addazio, and apparently he's the new coach at Temple. To date, he was known best for being the worst offensive coordinator, pound-for-pound, in all of football. To fail to gain yards and score points at Florida, well, that ain't easy.

Good ol' Addazio found a way to get it done, though. Hell, Addazio was so bad this year that Urban Meyer quit! Well, not really. But not for a second would you convince me that Meyer was going to retire had his team gone, say, 10-2. Addazio is one of the biggest reasons the team didn't go 10-2. So, there you go. Addazio did chase Meyer out the door.

And now Addazio is going to Temple, which has recruited well only when it had the energetic charisma of Al Golden recruiting for it. I can do the math: Addazio's skill plus typical Temple athletes = a slew of 2-10 seasons. No idea who Temple will beat to get those two wins, either.

Temple football, which was so lousy it was kicked out of the Big East -- the Big East, for god's sake -- is about to go downhill. Has the MAC ever kicked out a school for being lousy at football?

We'll see in about three years.

I really don't care about Temple football (all apologies to William H. Cosby). I just had to comment on the hilarious picture of Doyel holding a little hammer. Who does this clown think he's fooling? At least get a big hammer. Or, since he's such a tough guy, abandon the hammer completely.

Very glad to see him go! Was he going to be back anyways?  I doubt Muschamp would've kept him...

The one bright spot I can see about this hiring is, at least I'm graduating this May and won't be around to see this mess.

What amazing objectivity?  Does Addazio owe you money?  What kind of journalism incorporates so much personal opinion?  Maybe you should try radio or some other outlet that allows for moronic dribble.  Let's see what he does as a head.  The cupboard isn't bear and it's entirely possible that Golden set up the next guy well.  A recent member of a national championship staff is no slouch for a historically bad football program.
