That's ok. Down at MD, they refer to him as Rangoon. We knew who you meant!http://www.courant.com/sports/college/hc-jacobs-edsall-column-1130-20111130,0,2427044.column
Note: I realize I missed the "s" in Edsall's name but I can't edit the title.
Rangoon also refers to a tasty, wonton-like chinese pastry, often filled with crab (kinda describes edsall's deflect the blame and brash personality) and a light cream (just like the cream of the crop recruiting he does) and cheese sauce (he kinda spoils if he is exposed to criticism about his abilities or qualifications). Fitting name, don't you think? Sorry, it's the chef in me, can't help but find these conmections. Did I mention a Rangoon is often fried for 1 to 2 mins....sounds awfully close to fired (1 to 2 years)?
Haha! I wonder if any of those others happen to be regulars on this board? In defense of Edsall, the Patriots have had the success they've had doing things the "Edsall Way!" or something like that."Somewhere along the way in the final three or four years at UConn, Edsall began to believe that the program was all about him. Here's the rub: He got others to believe it, too."
Priceless.....has there been a better description of the man than Jacobs' "anal-retentive control freak" comment?
Is there anyone left on earth who really believes Randy Edsall is a top flight head coach that should have ever been even in the discussion for jobs like Notre Dame or Penn State?
You guys do realize that almost all coaches are anal-retentive control freaks right? One of whom isn't... well his claim is that he didn't realize his decades long assistant was abusing underage boys.
The quotes are great and all, but someone should tell those guys that they are 5-6 and might miss a bowl for the first time in a while.
