    Where do you rank richt? He can't win big games. Sumlin has no defense. Miles is terrible. We went 11-2. 4-1 against top ten teams. If our offense after next year is still stagnant then your point my be valid. It could be worse.

    Are you saying Grier is a dual threat QB? Because he isn't. Rivals might have him as one, but they also had Brissett as the #3 QB. Grier can run (and he does in HS), but he is an elite passing talent. He is also so thin, there is no way he is doing much running in college.

    Remember back when we used to make fun of the Big-10 as 4 yds and a cloud of dust? Man, have things changed around here. Today you can get jumped on for advocating a passing game or wide open football.

    I would love to hear how Les Miles is terrible? He's beat the Gators multiple times, won a national championship, played in another. Also usually plays good teams at the beginning of the season to go along with his schedule that usually includes Alabama, Florida, Texas A&M, and Georgia this year. Sorry I had to call that out... To me he's a great coach he has stepped in for Saban and just kept that team rolling.

    I can agree with Richt, and how Sumlin has no defense.

    I think 3 O coordinators in 3 years is hard on any program. This is the O coordinator's 2 year and from what I heard last year chanp was changing a lot of the calls from the los. This year I believe the new system will settle in and start to bloom for the coaches and the players. I am anxious to see how it does.

    He can pass.

    He can run.

    I count two threats.

    He had nearly 1,000 yards rushing last year.

    He's a dual-threat.

    but they don't care, push him out and bring in another. Then they will complain that the players wont pick it up, then wash and repeat

    Grier is a pocket QB with good mobility.

    Will explained the strategy as plain as he could. He wanted to control the ball against a team with an offense that could run 80+ plays. He did not want to wear a numbers' depleted defense out. So run the ball, play a possession passing game when forced to and get out with a win. Save the troops for games to come. Seems pretty simple to me and perfectly acceptable.

    My problem is more lack of sample size than anything else, I'd put Sumlin slightly ahead of Boom (they both are currently one dimensional head coaches but Sumlin has a longer track record of success) and put both behind Richt, this will probably change in the next year or two but remember Richt's won the SEC twice, won the East 4 times etc.

    What do people think "dual threat" means, exactly?

    Besides miles multiple clock management issues, I just don't feel he's a very good coach. I work with tons of lsu fans and the majority feel the same way. He's in a hot bed of talent and also cherry picks from Texas. He won a title with 2 losses over a terrible posu team. He does les with more. Pun intended

    How long has richt had the same coordinators? All that continuity and minimal success. He only started beating uf during the transition years.

    According to the standards set by some posters here, he fits the definition of a troll.

    Where would you rank Boom then? Currently I'd go:
    1) Saban- Duh
    2) Spurrier
    3) Miles
    4) Richt
    5) Bielema (controversial and yes he needs to prove it in the SEC but still he man's won consecutive league titles in the 3rd or 4th best conference despite being at a talent disadvantage every year)
    6) Franklin (small sample size caveats apply but given the degree of difficulty this may actually be too low)
    7) Sumlin
    8) Boom
    9) Mullen (again degree of difficulty he's the first MSU coach in school history to go to a bowl 3 straight years)
    10) Freeze
    11) Pinkel
    12) Malzahn
    13) Jones
    14) Stoops

    I don't think it's fair to him. I said previously let's see where we are after next year. Why don't you compare Sabans first 2 years at bama to booms. You could also look how far ut has fallen since he left. I'm not saying he's the greatest but I firmly believe he has huge potential. Give him a couple seasons with hopefully minimal to no coaching turnover and then we will talk.

    The only person that should be higher is saban, and I personally would not trade.

    Our #2 & #3 running backs for Toledo weigh @190 pounds. :huh:
    How big do you need a non-spread QB to be to run effectively?
