Addazio doesn't say much in press conference

At this point I don't expect Steve Addazio to create some sort of controversy or get the College Football world's attention like Larry Fedora did. However, I wouldn't mind a little insight into the team or some specifics for the fans. If the opening press conference was any indication, we are not getting much out o the ACC Media Days. The biggest news -- which we already knew -- was that Brown was back and will be cleared by the time practices start in August.

Otherwise it was generic talk about team chemistry. There was an answer to a weird question about teams adjusting to the weather. He reiterated his desire to play good D and run the ball. Addazio also talked a little about his history with Paul Pasqualoni. But that was it. Very little about what's going on in football. Nothing on the uptick in recruiting. He didn't even get a chance to talk up facilities.

On Friday most of the one on one interview content will seep out. Hopefully he said something in those sessions that give us an idea of what to expect, how this year will be different and how he is dealing with the expectations.

Couldn't have been as bad as the Frank Spaziani interview several years ago. With his arms folded grunting responses with the hat over his eyes and that towel over his shoulder.

That guy was an ungrateful piece of shit.

I don't think the towel was in play during the interview I am thinking of, none the less. POS.

Addazio actually gave a very good interview. Even if it was light on content. Multiple people in the room reported he was one of the better speakers among the coaches

Did his words actually flow properly and not jump all over the place?

Good article on Espn.com in their college sports section (on their front page) entitled, “ The weird, wild world of college football message boards.”

Ifound his statement that "Pasqualoni was the Best football coach he's ever worked with" quite interesting. Thats high praise.

I heard Mark Packer say on the radio today that Clemson had better watch out in November game in Boston.🙂

There might be snow balls involved.

The Dazzler has a honeymoon once again. This is the sixth. Loyal fans "drank the fifth". He is running out of welcomes and if he indeed brings home 5.5 wins, then he is a roasted marshmallow.--- As the song goes, "till then" all is peaceful. However if Clemson comes into town and we have a mediocre record or we are blown out, then more than snowballs will be flying.
