    Stitt is a great offensive mind and excellent coach, but like most teams, when they run into a team with more talent (in Mines' case, CSU-Pueblo), scheme isn't enough.

    This is the one part that stuck me most in the article: The best part is the ability as a head coach to experiment and evolve without looking over his shoulder,

    I think anyone stepping into the OC position will have thousands looking over his shoulder, unlike Mines where they average <5 K in attendance, and quite frankly, far fewer than that are passionate about their team.

    At UF we will rarely run into teams with more talent. Kids want to play in this type of offense. It's fun.

    Like it.

    I think this is the type of route we will have to take. I.E. get an smaller school or high school offensive mind that has been pilling up offensive stats and is willing to take on the challenge and is willing to risk one year and out as part of WM crew to get a shot to prove system works in the big time (he has proven to be able to make things work with less than optimal talent). As the article points out these type of coaches have had great recent success.

    One game last year they ran 118 plays! Compared to this year it would be like going from the outhouse to the White House.

    Bob Stitt will most likely be the next head coach at Wyoming

    I hope that is the way we go, get a lower level coach or one who is ready to move up to a bigger school. That is what I have wanted with, give me one of these guys:
    Kenny Edenfield
    Bill Legg
    Sterling Gilbert

    Wouldn't mind seeing something like this, but this would mean an entire two more years of recruiting the players to run the scheme as well as doubling down on defensive recruiting to create the depth on D to accommodate quick offensive strikes. 90+ snaps per game?! That's some insane stuff right there.

    Also, I agree with Bullish that Muschamp would never allow a true spread or different variations of it every year to counter the annual opponents as it would seriously conflict with his own philosophy of TOP, ball control offense, and don't think for a moment that Captain Meltdown isn't going to enforce a pro-set style running attack.

    Mainly, we must adapt to what our QB's skill set is. If he's a passer, then lets get those 3, 4, and 5 WR sets out there... if he's a dual-threat, give him the read and spread options to run out of the base pro-set formations.

    In one of Stitt's interviews he stated he modified the fly sweep because it took too much time in practice when it was a handoff, He then switched it to a forward flip because if the wideout dropped it it was an incomplete pass, I would love to see an innovator like Stitt with our talent and Muschamps D.

    You hire this guy and with Chomp's D you revolutionize SEC football. If I am coach and I am desperate to keep my job I take the bold step.
