Could not of said it better myself. My sons experiences with CMC helped make him the fine young man and husband he is today.Just shows how little research/background sports media folks put into making their opinions. I am sure Matt Campbell was a better leader & coach after his Toledo HC experience. But if I had to opine, my guess is Matt ooooooozed leadership, vision and care for his players while an assistant at Mt Union & Toledo. Too many times media folks over emphasize the X & O's in coaching hires and forget about the HC's job to provide leadership, vision and create a culture.
I would HATE to lose Matt Campbell as ISU's head coach because of the success the Clones have had on the field. But the bigger loss is Matt Campbell as a leader of young men. My statements aren't based on any insider knowledge, but how he and his team present themselves in public. First Class All the Way!!
There is a bit of paranoia on this board about ISU losing Matt Campbell to a "traditional power". Again while I would hate for that to happen, I am hopeful there is a Matt Campbell clone on this staff and the great thing is Jamie Pollard has a front row seat to observe this assistant.
Totally agree...and the "Puff Daddy" cap on the top of the head is among the worst flat-bill looks.If there is a reason to love Coach Matt Campbell above all others, its that he properly wears a hat. The flat bill craze that afflicted the world 20-ish years ago needs to end immediately. There is no middle ground, this is right vs wrong and Matt does it right!
