5. Coach
has always practiced a unique blend of Eastern mysticism and Christianity, iirc. And there have been other survivors who pretended to be religious to fit in if that's the way the tribe was leaning.

If I got on Survivor and had the bad luck to get in a super-Christian alliance, why would I tell them I'm a strong atheist? I'd at best just say i'm not very religious. Same with politics. You don't have to pretend to be a freeper, but there's a time and place for everything, and in a social game like this, it's not the time to be outspoken about things that are going to offend other people. Play pretend for a month, let off steam in the confessionals, and take the money while laughing.

Mikaela (sp?) was singled out by Li'l Hantz for being a strong woman, I completely agree. Coach had a problem with her because she wouldn't be coached in the challenge twice. Had she been doing well, different story, but from what we were shown, she did terribly.

Cochran. If I was to be physically able to play, I'd like to say I'd play like Jim, but if I'm honest I'd probably play more like Cochran, so I'm sympathetic to him. He's self-deprecating, but that can come off wrong in the wrong group. Jim has seen his true value, which is a vote for Jim. Ozzy just saw a skinny guy who wasn't jock enough, so never reached out to him. Ozzy's always had a bit of the jock mentality (remember when he tossed a challenge to get rid of Billy?).

Finally, I think Coach is genuinely who he is, and has a legit shot at winning this thing. He's a lot better than he was in Tocantins (although that may be editing).
