    Dana Holgerson for ISU OC

    Just throwing this idea out there.Clearly ISU needs some juice on the offensive side of the ball.Dana Holgerson is from Mount Pleasant, Iowa, I believe and it looks like he'll be needing a job for next fall. I think it'd be wise if CPR snagged him up and had him call plays next fall.He's run WVU into the ground and his hair is horrible, but he's had great success calling plays. Paul should give him a try.All I know is that if Messingham is conducting the offense next fall, Rhoads has lost his freaking mind.

    He will be an OC at a bigger program. He will not come to Ames.

    You don't go from HC in the Big 12 (who also won an orange bowl two years ago! apparently that means something in these parts) to Big 12 OC. He needs to be a HC somewhere, fail, be an OC at a highish level school, fail, and then agree to take a massive paycut in order to take the job here.

    We certainly could use an offensive mind like that but CPR would never hire Holgy. CPR liked Bill Stewart and Holgy pretty much undermined him to get the WVA job. Behavior like that carries long, long consequences from coaches

    Point is still taken, we definitely need an upgrade at OC, someone with such a pedigree would be unreal

    Re: Dana Holgerson for ISU OC

    Short list I've compiled of potential OC candidates:

    Holgorsen
    Kevin Wilson: Current Indiana head coach, on the hot seat
    Seth Littrell: Current Indiana OC, coached running backs for Leach from 2005 to 2008
    Dave Christensen: Current Wyoming HC, former Mizzou OC, more or less on the hot seat this year
    Dave Schramm: Current Fresno State OC, and OC at Utah in 2009 and 2010
    Charlie Taaffe: Current Central Florida OC
    Todd Monken: Current Southern Miss HC on the hot seat, former Okie State OC

    As you can see I'm not a big fan of the Mangino idea, too much extra weight, pun intended.

    If we. Ould get mangino it would be a hell of a hire. Guy can coach. He got ku to the Orange Bowl. Yeah KU. Why would we not take him if possible.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    If people couldn't figure out what was going on when Holgerson was hired there, they are idiots. Also, Rhoads has done the whole "hire a guy I like" deal and it has lead to the worst offensive football we have had in a decade which is really saying something.

    Re: Dana Holgerson for ISU OC

    How about just upgrading Coach Klenakis to OC since we are running the offensive scheme that he invented at Nevada.

    Re: Dana Holgerson for ISU OC

    I'm putting myself on the OC job search. If anyone saw my play calling ability in NCAA '11, '12, & '13 they would understand i am very qualified. My game tapes have been sent into Rhoads already so i'm assuming i will be hired some time in mid January

    He didn't invent it. He happened to be there.

    This ioffensive scheme needs to go away, now. We don't need another guy to come in and re-invent a triangular wheel. We've been there and done that.
