    you think that being around chris petersen's offensive genius every day would rub off on him, no?

    all those late hours/early mornings in the film room and devising offensive game plans. the development of blocking schemes to keep QBs from getting hit and giving wideouts and tight ends enough space to operate and do what they do best in the open field.

    i'm watching some of those boise state highlights and i just can't grasp that he doesn't have some sizzle left in his imagination.

    unless of course, he isn't being allowed to show what he's capable of by higher powers, which is a topic for another thread:ninja:

    I watched Boise State / UGA last night and frankly "imagination" really isn't the issue. Most of the plays would look familiar to the average Gator fan. It's just that Boise State made them work.

    Our offensive line sucks and our WR's haven't helped the last few years. It really has nothing to do with the plays being called.

    but the game of football didn't suddenly change from the blue turf in boise to the swamp. it's still 11-on-11 on a 100 yard field and the rules are the same.

    how did they make it work?

    isn't that the job description of an offensive coordinator? to coordinate an offense?

    Pease took over an offensive system running on all cylinders with a fifth year record setting qb running the offense. Pease probably would have had to actively sabotage the offense to look bad.

    There's a few of possibilities:

    1. They had a 4-year starter at QB that was a Heisman finalist.

    2. They had an NFL RB

    3. They played comparatively weaker defenses on a whole

    4. The core of players had been together for a long time.

    compare:

    1. We have a 1st time starter and 2-star QB

    2. If we have an NFL RB he hasn't shown himself yet.

    3. We play, for the most part, the toughest defenses in the country

    4. We've had a lot of turnover in the last few years via attrition and injury

    It really doesn't matter one way or another. Pease is in way over his head and he can't make the offense work with the talent he has. One would think he could figure out ways to help improve the blocking schemes or get the TE's involved in catching passes. Not from what I've seen!

    I think play calling is overrated. It's more about developing a good system, and teaching thr players that system. It seems to me Pease isn't good at that. Everyone says the second year of a system is when you see the biggest improvement due to player familiarity, but we seem to be getting worse.

    He also isn't that good of a recruiter.

    Even if you're as high as possible on Kelvin Taylor he is not today - nor would he be next year - an NFL RB.
