    Poll on how us Fanatics view Messingham

    With all the questions surrounding the offensive side of the ball and coach Messingham, I was curious to see the breakdown of how all of us fanatics feel about him.

    Personally...I'm seeing some EERIE similarities between the loyalty that Coach Mac showed to Barney Cotton and what Paul Rhoads is showing Messingham. I just hope it doesn't end the same way.

    Anyway, what are your thoughts!!!

    I said be demoted. I don't think he's the best position coach in the world, but I don't think it would be beneficial to bring in a new position coach right now. Let Sturdy or Klenakis call plays the rest of the year as a tryout for next season and move forward from there.

    Why do so many people want Klenakis to call plays? He needs to worry about getting the OL problems corrected before he even thinks about calling a play.

    I agree. Who knows if coach K can even run an offense? He coached under a whiz in Ault, who definitely had control of the reigns at Nevada.

    I guess Kenakis had better learn the practice of faith healing, because without guys getting healthy in about 10 days correcting OL problems are going to be moot. I'm not saying the starting OL is anything to write home about, but we're playing 2nd and 3rd stringers on the OL right now.

    That's the reason I'm skeptical. He had a successful offense as an OC at Nevada and he has the most experience with the pistol offense of anybody on the staff.

    With what I've seen so far I'd prefer Sturdy were calling plays.

    Fire Mess. Either demote him to special teams coordinator or get him out of here.

    Hire Sturdy as interim OC. If he sucks, hire a real OC at the end of the season.

    I must have missed where out tackles got injured against UNI, oh wait I didn't miss that it was our starting tackles who couldn't even handle a UNI DE.

    I just don't think I'm ready to give up on the coaches. I think the problem is player talent. I will say that If I see one more bubble screen, my head will explode.

    Well, which would you rather have - the guy that had problems handling UNI's defense, or that guy's backup's backup?

    On a serious note, I have not seen this big of an outcry to fire a coach since Dan McCarney in '06. Even the "fire Greg" stuff wasn't this bad.
