Mazzone: Does Anyone Else

have the same feeling I do in watching one of his interviews? I'm not talking about his competence, which is very much in question these days. (And like everyone on BN, I would love to see him startle us with a dazzling, and successful, game plan against Oregon.)

I'm talking about the way he projects himself when he answers questions. In my now well-established years as a geezer, I've reached the conclusion that some people perceived as experts often answer questions in a way that suggests they're bored or can't be bothered with the details in spelling out the answer. But the important point is that sometimes that's really true, and the expert does know his or her stuff. (Two examples are Bill Belichick of the Patriots and Bill Parcells, formerly of the NY Giants.)

But after reading IE Angel's informed analysis, I'm inclined to think Mazzone is one of those people who have an expertise in sounding like an expert.

I still like CJM, and I hope he didn't make a hire based on style rather than substance.
