    Offensive Coordinator

    Will the new offensive coordinator be named by the end of this week to help recruit? Thoughts?

    Hopefully we get somebody who doesn't go away from what's working during a game.

    Re: Offensive Coordinator

    Amen to that. I'm not convinced Herman's offense and play calling would ever be sucessful here. I'm anxious to move forward with a new O coordinator.

    Re: Offensive Coordinator

    The tough part is knowing that some people are going to lose their jobs in all likelihood. That said, I am not a an of the Jet Tempo which loses the time of possession game, I understand how it works for Oregon just don't see it as an asset for us. Also, we do not have a running QB like Tebow, Jared/Sam will be serviceable runners but not of the size that can run 15-20 times per game. Frankly, I think after 3 years we have seen what Tom's Offense can do here. Looking forward to a change, and play calling that makes some kind of sense.

    Re: Offensive Coordinator

    TH is literally a genious, but I think all too often he outsmarted himself.
    The times that he took what the defense gave him, we had success. When he tried to force the issue, we looked lost.

    I am really anxious to see who is hired. I am hoping it will be someone that can develop the young QBs we have in the system for the future and get the offense rolling more consistently.

    Based on recent CPR comments, the current version of the no-huddle spread offense is essentially staying as-is and will be tweaked for the strengths/weaknesses of whoever ends up as the starting QB. The offense will continue to be high-tempo when it needs to be.

    Also, it appears that Kliff Kingsbury will end up at TX A&M:

    Twitter

    If anyone watched the LA Tech-TCU bowl game, the Tony Franklin offense for LA Tech is very similar to what ISU has run since CPR arrived. Franklin would seem to be a logical candidate given that he and CPR were on Auburn's staff at the same time.

    I am by no means a Raisin Face fan, but there is some wisdom in his "scratch where it itches" philosophy.

    Being a 'genius' is pretty overrated when it comes to coaching football. Maybe if he were an astrophysicist or neurosurgeon it would come in handy. Obviously, a lot of non-genii (not a word, I know) have had a lot more success than Herman has as OC's.
