    Nothing wrong with sacking assistants mid season, Strong fired his oc after 1 1/2 on the job, Texas their dc after 2 games this year.

    How a new OC can make our offensive line play better is a mystery to me.

    You'll get a better list of candidates in the off season.

    I don't think it would be possible to keep a fired assistant secret until Wednesday.

    If it was going to happen, it would have happened on Sunday night and announced Monday, IMO.

    Maybe different plays or better play-calling would help the OL out a little bit.

    I hope he doesn't decide to run more on first down.

    A smart OC will call the plays that will maximize the strengths (little as they may be) of our offensive line. A bad OC will do the same things over and over and make no adjustments. I'll let you guess which description Pease fits into.

    That quote has never actually been properly attributed to Einstein.

    My concern with Muschamp is not about knowing changes need to be made, it's the decision making on the needed changes.

    Rumor has it Einstein borrowed it from one of Coach Boom's ancestors.

    And it stuck.

    So Coach Boom's ancestor ended up with a different one....

    That quote is actually sort of out of context. When he said it, I'm pretty sure he was referring to how bad the Offensive Line was against Missouri. I'm not sure that he ever said anything about changes being in order -- but he definitely alluded to it.

    off line has weak talent and it's not being coached properly---major changes are in order during the offseason.

    That's one of the problems we're facing, but another one is the play-calling... it has been ridiculously predictable and that is the OC's fault.

    It can help out our OL a lot. Our OL is poor, but they look worse than they are because of the garbage predictable play calling. Everyone knows when we will pass and when we will run making the OL's job very hard.

    Also firing Pease can help out our offensive recruiting. Joker Phillips is a proven OC.

    It seems to me that a down-hill running game like Muschamp wants is by nature predictable.

    "This next play they'll try to run it down our throats."

    "Yeah, and the next one after that. What are we going to do?"

    True... Two failed OC's in a row doesn't bode well in his decision making there.

    I question whether or not WM actually hired Weis or if it was forced on him.

    My two cents on BOOM's OC hires...

    1) Weis hire had Belicheck/Urban influence all over it, BOOM really had no say

    2) Remember we where going after Brent Pease with Alabama as our main competition... Saban would have made the same mistake
