Dang, I was hoping for something along the lines of "Peyton Manning retiring from the NFL to become OC at ISU."
If we to hire Booger Weis I'm done with football
Hmmmmm. Dana Holgorsen on the hot seat at WVU? Former OC for Tech and a high flying Houston offense. Hmmmmm.
Weis a few weeks back gave up calling the offense. Has his OL coach call run game and WR coach call pass game.
I think there was some scuttle of Wally retiring after this year before the season even started and we knew what kind of debacle we were facing. I wouldn't be surprised to see it happen. When he got hired, I don't think anyone expected anything more than 5 years any how.
So what are we thinking will happen at the end of the year?
Mess - Gone (Reason: incompetence)
Wally - Gone (Reason: old)
Does the new OC clean house and bring in his own people?
Is the new DC Shane, or do we hire someone with more experience?
I know Mess gets **** on all day on CF (and I'm guilty as charged for contributing), but why wouldn't we expect a change?
Any other team in the country would have some type of shake up coming given the results on the field. Texas did it a few games in, and here we are, "waiting" to see if Mess can pull something together. It is time for some type of shake-up. I know a budget affects who we could have quite a bit, but I'm not so sure a friendly hire for an unproven is worth the risk. If there is a shake up, then it must be someone with something on their resume. Mess had not called plays since 2004 when he was at Upper Iowa. He may be a "hell of a position coach," but not he is not cut out to coordinate an entire offense to the caliber we need.
Wouldn't surprise me if we have 2 new coordinators next season. I think Shane would be a fine DC and it'd be fun to see if the style changed at all or if he was just a younger Wizard.
If both our coordinators simultaneously leave it's going to be a long year next year too.
