Coach Joseph reminds me of a few of my NCOs in the military. Natural, no-nonsense leader who clearly cares for his men and wants to teach them and show them how to succeed. Demanding and disciplined, but loving. A real father figure type. I’m not big on requiring the head guy to have Nebraska ties, but with Coach Joseph, it just doesn’t matter and may even be a plus, but he’d be great no matter where he came from…
Mickey sounds like a leader. Very well-spoken, with a good mix of confidence and being humble. He knows his role -- number one being a leader of young men -- and understanding the importance of that role.
More simply, he just gets it.
Also a treat listening to a head coach that doesn't sound like speaking to the media is the worst thing possible.
There isn't a college football staff that wouldn't benefit from having Mickey Joseph on staff. I'm not sure where he'll be next year, but he will be in demand.
Here’s to wishing the best for Mickey and the team. I love what he’s saying, but let’s see if it has an impact on the team. Would love nothing more than to see coach Joseph succeed! Cautiously optimistic.
