- Being an assistant coach is like being a prisoner
- There is a progression to moving from a prisoner to being freed.
- Dan Enos didn't follow it
- He can be rehabilitated.
And a direct quote:
The spearhead of that dysfunction is Enos.
Enos is the ultimate example of what happens when the prisoner runs the prison.
Enos was not given the time he needed to develop into a head coach, and by hiring him, CMU Athletic Director Dave Heeke did Enos a great disservice by robbing him of his education.
My own two cents, based only on a week of looking at coverage of the CMU team is that there is some truth to this. Enos' pulling of Ryan Radcliffe smacked of Marty Morninweg driving away from practice on his motorcycle--the overly dramatic and damaging actions of a guy who doesn't know what he is doing yet. It is just not the kind of thing you see a seasoned head coach doing. Imagine Tressel, for example, doing something similar.
Anyway, makes for an interesting sidelight to what otherwise is a game between two teams playing for pride.
