I'm an NC State fan, but I pull for the U, too, as I was a Hurricane fan back in the early 70s when lived in Key West watching the Dolphins win Super Bowls. In fact, I only applied to two colleges my senior year in HS and the U was one of them, but I went to the U of I since I was living in Illinois at the time. I wish I'd gone to the U instead.
What we witnessed wasn’t surprising, but it reinforced two notions:
1). Diaz has injected more energy and bravado into this program than arguably any Hurricanes coach since Jimmy Johnson and Butch Davis.
2). Enos is demanding and meticulous and a stickler for details, and that’s a big reason he tends to get the most out of the players he coaches, particularly quarterbacks.
Diaz was in classic form at a Hurricane Club event before the spring game in Orlando, serving up his unique blend of boldness and bravado.
“When the Canes show up, it’s a big event,” he told the adoring audience.
Then, with the crowd in the cup of his hands, Diaz said: “One of the cruelest, unexpected effects of the turnover chain is we have a party on our sideline, and the other team is so jealous they weren’t invited. They watch on the JumboTron and say, ‘I wish I was at Miami.”
And then this: “You are either a Cane or you wish you are a Cane.”
When the subject of victory formation came up, Diaz cracked: “To me, we’re true Hurricanes. We run the score up!”
The man certainly understands his audience and knows what they crave.
And Diaz is the most social-media savvy coach in Canes history.
