    Wouldn't surprise me if there are changes on both sides of the ball. Not one bit.

    Not any longer than it would be if they both stay. One can reasonably assume that if Burnham the Younger replaces Burnham the Elder we will have significant continuity. Look at Iowa, for example.

    On offense, it is almost a given that Mess must leave. More important, however, is that we not only replace the position, but also significantly retool/replace the entire scheme. Remember: the debacle we have now is in fact the kind of scheme PR says he wants. He must change his thinking or we'll simply hear the same awful tune from a different trumpeter. For this reason, neither Sturdy nor Klenakis should be options. If that means they leave too, so be it.

    Paul Clark wrote a good piece (on the other site) about the lack of identity of this offense, especially the ridiculousness of PR's OC-by-committee approach. Clark got gun shy about taking his criticism to its logical end (he reverted to some "stay the course" mumbo), but he made the right diagnosis.

    Re: Take this for what it's worth but...

    You guys are all thinking about this too hard. We aren't getting rid of any coaches, it's just CPR's headset man is transferring and CPR will be looking for a new one. That's all, nothing to get worked up about.

    McCarney would make a HORRIBLE offensive coordinator.

    If Wally retires we can always hire that DC they had a Texas a few years back. I think he is still looking for a job. What was his name....it started with a G.....oh yeah Gene Chizik

    Re: Take this for what it's worth but...

    Would Mac even consider coming back as a DC?

    Seems like a slap in the face a bit, but he was a pretty good DC at Wisconsin before he was the HC here.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I could handle that. The Rio Grande Valley in South Texas needs a major university. How about South Padre University?

    Re: Take this for what it's worth but...

    I don't have a problem with the scheme. Personnel dictates who we are in alot of ways. It's not rocket science. Baylor, Okie State still run the ball. I won't touch the injury issue even though it's a huge factor. What bothers me most about our offense is the tempo in which we run it. I don't need a play every 8 seconds but we've got no rhythm. The Texas game was as close to what I'm talking about. I thought we looked good because we played at a quicker pace. All of this said, everyone on offense - well defense too - looks to have a fragile psyche at this point. They're not real confident after being beat up and that doesn't help execution.

    I wonder what, "we're told" means ? Who told them - a message board?

    "We’re told, at a minimum, to expect staff changes...."

    Re: Take this for what it's worth but...

    I could see coach Mac coming back in a d-line capacity if he wants to not have the head coach headaches/health issues since him and CPR have a pre-existing relationship, and it's "home". Probably a 1% chance it happens, but it's possible.

    I am getting the feeling we already tried this sort of thing.

    Messingham won the SportCenter Trivia contest for the OC job.

    10 seconds left in the game, down by 6, 4th down and the Cyclones have the ball on the opponent 2 yard line with a Big 12 Championship berth on the line. Punts.
