ACC's lunchtime links: In defense of coordinators

If Wake Forest fans want to pick on somebody, coach Jim Grobe says pick on him. It was a clear message, unlike Ralph Friedgen's earlier defense of his defensive coordinator, Chris Cosh. Friedgen supported Cosh, but also said Cosh is too emotional on the sideline:

"As a coordinator, you can't do that," Friedgen said. "If you want to be an assistant coach, that's fine. But if you are going to call defenses, you have to be, 'What's the personnel group? What's the down and distance? What is my call now?' You don't need to be going, 'Uh, uh, uh, uh', or screaming or yelling. I just can't operate like that. That is about the only criticism I have."
