opposite of hardcore, hard-core, or hard core. Derives from the opposite of each part of its antonym. Opposite of 'hard' is 'soft.' And the opposite of 'core' is (or can be) 'crust.' Refers to someone or something lacking in extremity or devotion.
Just because Tom plays on the varsity squad doesn't make him hardcore, he's still pretty softcrust to most people.
