    Remember Tony Franklin - the hotshot OC rumored to be coming here?

    He ended up at Cal and thus far he's putting a top 5 offense on the field for the golden bears. For reference, last year Cal had an offense ranked even lower than ours... we were 85th and they were 89th.

    Tony Franklin got a bad rap because he had 1 bad year at Auburn where he had nothing to work with @ QB. Except for that 1 season he's career resume looks pretty nice.

    At least we have Mess....

    We've already had the Franklin talk. As fans, we know that we missed the boat here.

    One letter missing from your post.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    We do but does Rhoads? That's really the only thing that matters.

    He had one bad year indicating he was a fraud and would never replicate his earlier success. I mean one bad year cancels out all the good work you've done over your entire career, right? Good job by Rhoads ignoring him and going with Mess instead. I mean, Mess was the great unknown. Maybe he was the next Bill Walsh? With Franklin, you knew you weren't getting that.

    Franklin went to be with one of his old buddies. Would've taken more resources than Rhoads could offer to bring him here.

    Hey! Stop spouting facts when everyone is busy bashing our own coaches!




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.

    Re: Remember Tony Franklin - the hotshot OC rumored to be coming here?

    Both Klenakis and Sturdy have been OC's before. Gotta believe Klenakis, in particular, would be 10X a better playcaller than Mess. CPR needs to pull the trigger now. Surprised he didn't before the season started to be honest, after last years lack of imagination on offensive playcalling. Cannot let personal relationships cloud your professional judgement. With that said, CPR is my all time favorite Cyclone coach. But he needs to make the change at OC yesterday. Our offensive players has no faith in Mess, IMO, just by their lack of enthusiasm when they take the field and some post game reactions to some questions. 2 games...no energy. You get your energy from your preparation and belief in the system. Bottom line, we do not have an Offensive Identity, ala Chizik years. Losses to UNI and Iowa are mostly on him, IMO.

    I'd move Klenakis to OC and QB Coach, Mess to TE coach, Bleil as OL coach, with Klenakis in the booth on gameday.

    Why do you assume Franklin wanted to come here. I guess I figured Rhoads wanted him and he didn't want the job. So Mess got it. I think there is nothing to support Mess being the first choice.

    Re: Remember Tony Franklin - the hotshot OC rumored to be coming here?

    Franklin is coaching under Sonny D.ykes at Cal. He went with him from Louisiana Tech. A lot of the success is because of Fraklin but D.ykes is one of the modern day Air Raid aficionados and has his fingerprints all over the offense as well.

    No doubt Franklin would be a better coach than Mess but he still wouldn't field a top 10 offense in Ames.
