IMO, a lot more than a bit.

I am reminded of the last few years of Bobby Bowden's coaching tenure at FSU. A beloved coach who simply couldn't win anymore. Same for Frank Beamer. Because they were worshipped and adored for so long, they came to believe they had earned such treatment for so long as they wanted it. Most of us know from our daily experiences that such a utopia only exists in our minds.

It's my view that Starsia had retired in place, and felt that his past successes afforded him that luxury, and further, that it should have continued so long as he wanted it to, because he deserved to call his own retirement date.

Over the years, I've known several men who had coaching careers, and I've always felt that they lived in a fantasy world. That article clearly shows that Starsia's fantasy is still very much alive in his mind, even though he got booted out of it by reality. Yes, it's a bit sad that this is happening to him, but I think it's much more a product of his fantasy than it is of some sort of unfair treatment.
