    Re: MESS named OC

    Now we need a thread predicting new WR coach.

    Not the sexiest hire...but that doesn't mean it won't be effective!

    I'm not feeling it. I guess we'll have to see.

    Hmmm. Underwhelmed. JP commits new $ for staff, and we promote from within?

    Good improvement on the offense (and kicking game) is the next step this program must take. Would have preferred to see a proven OC come in with some good ideas.

    CPR said from day 1 that he was going to look for someone to adapt to the team rather than having the team try to adapt to somebody else. Ideas are only useful with the personnel to execute them.

    Re: MESS named OC

    This is all I need to know that he's the right hire...

    "I am excited about Courtney taking over the reins of the offense," Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads said. "Courtney has coached at every level of college football and has head coach and coordinator experience. He has earned this opportunity through hard work and positive results as a coach and as a recruiter. We have the right man."

    I trust CPR.

    I really hope CPR knows what he is doing. The brains of the guy that coaches the worst area on offense for the last how many years now controls the whole offense. Best of luck to him, but I raise an eyebrow at this call.

    He only coached the WR's this past year, one where they were much better than the year before. He coached the TE's the year before that; with Franklin being one of the best players on the field.

    This is the first year Messingham has coached the receivers. He's was the tight end's coach before this season.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    What would have been?

    Someone that wants to devote the time, go to Ohio State boards and post all the "Tom Herman is a sexy hire" threads.

    Fair point. The WR's did have a better year this year than the last 3 so maybe he is a diamond in the ruff.

    Re: MESS named OC

    Gotta admit, I didn't jump for joy either. But CPR must see something in Mess I don't. At least he has OC experience. Time will tell...

    I am a little concerned about finding a special teams coach though. Mess seems to have shored that area up nicely. (With exception of the oft-troubled field goal kicking unit)

    Wasn't he the WR coach only 1 year? (maybe 2) But if you look at the younger guys they have a lot of upside.

    Also, he has been the head special teams coach who implemented alot of the "innovative fakes and surprise kicks" so I am anxious to see what tweeks he makes to the offense.

    Re: MESS named OC

    Consistentcy type hire. ISU is getting the type of players it wants to run its style of offense. This helps to maintain that approach. We lost good position coaches in the past because we hired from outside for the OC and DC positions. This also shows promotion is possible.
