    Heard a stat last night in a discussion of Boise State's loss to Wash Saturday.

    It was the second year in a row that BSU failed to score an offensive TD in its first game.

    Those two years are of course the two years Pease has been OC for UF.

    In 2011, Pease's last year as BSU's OC , BSU scored 35 points in its first game to beat UGA.

    In 2011, Pease's last year at BSU, Boise State scored more than 30 points in every single game.

    In 2012, they scored below 30 points 6 times.

    In last Saturday's game, BSU was held to 6 points by Wash.

    Regardless of whether he is vanilla or not, BSU certainly seems to miss him.

    Glad you raised that, Hotlanta.

    The beat down from the Huskies definitely got my attention, but I didn't realize there was such a big delta for their whole season last year.

    Pease definitely impresses me so far. Our offense is in good hands.

    Was Pease actually calling the plays though or the head coach Chris Petersen calling them?

    It's been said that the offense used at Boise State was put in by Petersen but I don't know for sure so I'm asking if anyone does know?

    Sounds like Boise needs more vanilla.

    No Kellen Moore or Doug Martin will do that to you.

    Their offense has more evolved than it ever was "put in," so to speak. Petersen was OC under Hawkins, who was OC under Dirk Koetter before him, while both Koetter and Petersen worked for Mike Bellotti at Oregon. Petersen has definitely added a ton to the mix during his time and you could say he has sort of perfected their basic scheme (which is just a hodgepodge of West Coat, spread, and power run stuff, with a bunch of personnel-specific packages and plays on top of that).

    So far as I know Petersen let Pease, and Harsin before him, call the plays, but that is more a hunch from watching their games (noticing that he doesn't hold a play card between plays) than something I could substantiate.

    I will go with loss of talent on the offensive side of the ball more than anything. They also loss talent in the coaching staff one being Pease

    Why use last year to describe Pease's time at BSU-- it was his only year at BSU as OC, they lost their previous OC in the offseason when he became the OC at Texas. Furthermore- the drop may have a had a bit more to do with talent leaving than changing OCs-- its like pointing out how much better our 2009 offense was than our current attack and asking, is Florida missing the offensive genius of the Dazzler?

    Yup. Kellen Moore-and his knowledge of their system-was a very critical part in that team's success. Of course, they've experienced losses across the board. Pease is only a small part of that.

    Hate to disappoint you, but Addazio was no more the OC at Florida than Mullen was. The real OC was Urban Meyer...

    Depends on what you mean by offensive coordinator. If it is the one who calls the plays after input from the staff, then it was Addazio. If it is the one who leads weekly game prep, then it was Meyer.
