Can't afford a yard sale coach, no bargain pick ups please.
“Coach Muschamp talked to me about the situation,” Goolsby said. “He just told me that he will be evaluating guys and that he would let me know but that he wanted to get the offense. He told me that he wants a fast pace offense kind of like a spread but pro-style too. He told me they want to do a lot with the tight ends and run a lot of 12 personnel.”
Ugh. So, of the OC’s that have been brought up, who runs the pro-style fast paced tempo offense? I’m guessing Helton and Applewhite at the moment. Anyone else wanna shed some light?
The best thing I've heard all season as it relates to college football is that WMC is going to change the offense and go with an up-tempo, attacking approach. Not sure about everyone else, but I thought that was a big step in winning back the fan base after a terrible year. That said, here are my thoughts on the 3 front-runners as it relates my personal level of excitement.
1. Norvell: Home-run hire. Can't wait for next season. We will be back on top in no time!
2. Anderson: Excited about the offense. Excited about the season. This is going to be a good year and we are on the right track again!
3. Helton: This was the big offensive change-up? Not excited.
In Christ forever,
I would love Norvell, but usually when the fans like someone it doesn't work out. My prediction would be Applewhite or Helton. I think Anderson is the dark horse.
G8torsrul: "Ugh. So, of the OC’s that have been brought up, who runs the pro-style fast paced tempo offense? I’m guessing Helton and Applewhite at the moment. Anyone else wanna shed some light?"
Anderson runs a fast paced tempo.. But, like everyone else these days he runs some spread, and some read option. One of the advantages of Anderson is that he has run this offense at three schools, and installed, or at least helped Fedora, install it at two. He has learned from Fedora, but was on his own after Fedora left MTSU. The downside is that he is young and is looking for HC opportunities. I really value continuity when you get the right pieces in place.
I’m OK with 2 of the 3. I’m not sure about Helton. Does Norvell run a pro style fast paced offense or is it more spread?
I’m fine with Christenson, Anderson, Norvell or Montgomery in that order. You could even flip Anderson/Norvell and it wouldn’t matter much to me. I hope it’s not Applewhite or Helton. I’m not sure I’d be excited about the hire of either, but I’d be willing to watch CWM sink or swim while supporting him……until.
5I like Norvell and have mentioned him as one of my favorites, but have concerns after watching his offense against Stanford. Now granted, Stanford has a great D, but Norvell will face that a lot in the SEC. My biggest angst came when ASU was still very much in the game and had a 3rd and goal and 4th and goal and ran the same "stack up the beef" play that all our recent OC's have loved. Put all the bodies in the middle of the field and try and run it up the gut. Stopped on both plays and that was ball game. This troubles me with Norvell. Lack of vision at a critical juncture in the game. So He is no longer at the very top of my list. I still think he is a very good OC and would not mind him at Florida, but they were pretty vanilla against Stanford. After watching games this weekend, my top 5 is:
1. Bill Legg
2. Sterlin Gilbert
3. Mike Norvell
4. Kenny Edenfield
5. Dave Schramm
I really liked what I saw with Eastern Ill. and Gilbert. Balanced, fast paced attack, don't blink or you will miss something offense. They run plays in 15 seconds....I love it...... 553 yds, ,313 rushing 6.8 and 240 passing 8.9. Granted it was an inferior opponent, lower level and small school, but I don't think it will matter with him. He shredded the #4 ranked defense in the country. He exploits weaknesses. Give him the horses and athletes and he will produce. I expect somebody will grab him soon at a higher level. This weeks game with Towson should be a better indicator.
I saw one 4th down play up the middle and agree it was not a great call and reminded me also of what we’ve seen in the past. Bootleg or an option run at least. Something that says, I see all of you up the middle and we’re not going that way.
Brown just resigned at Tex. Please no Applewhite.
fwiw per one site:
"The offensive coordinator job at Florida remains in flux. We’re told the leading three candidates are UNC’s Blake Anderson, Arizona State’s Mike Norvell and Nebraska’s Tim Beck.
Sources indicate UCLA’s Noel Mazzone had an early interest, but decided to stay in Westwood".
I don't think there is any reason to cross off Noel Mazzone yet that is a BS rumor . He is a a great coach and turns programs around. He also has a great negotiator in Jimmy Sexton. All these rumors are put out by other agents to help there own guys out!!!!
I was in a hotel in Westwood for about two weeks on business. I understand why he wants to stay.
The replacement OC is a done deal. The strategic offensive transfers and new offers indicate to me that the new OC is dictating transfers and new offers.
KIFFEN - PETRINO?????
Are you freaking kidding me?
Applewhite or Helton will not make any effective change in the program.
Norvell or Anderson might be able to do that, maybe.
Unsure about Beck or Mazzone, although, from what I hear, Beck might be Muschamp's first choice due to his run orientation.
so far....ain't nobody wants to be in a LAME duck position...nor do I blame them...
you know who has been offered?
While I enjoy doing some speculation with this thing I am skeptical anybody has a clue on who Muschamp is going to hire. One thing we have learned with Muschamp and Foley is they are pretty good at keeping new hires a secret.
