    Re: Lee-Campbell hints toward OC direction, wants to compete

    Good news.

    So who called the plays the last two games?


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Judging from DLC's quotes, it really sounds like it was Coach K.



    “We talked about all of the offenses that he (Klenakis) has been a part of in his coaching career,” Lee-Campbell said. “When Coach Mess got fired, I called Coach K to see what was up. He told me that they weren’t going to change the offense around. They were basically going to take the last two games. That’s what they will be doing in the future.”

    That statement worries me a bit because it implies that the coaching staff thinks they fixed something offensively at the end of the season rather than the success being due to playing the worst two teams on our schedule.

    If it was, then signing him up is a great way to go.

    Any more explaination what he meant when he said "they were going to take the last two games?"


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    That's what I was thinking. Just basically saying, we are gonna be a good offense, look what we were doing at the end.

    Opened up the passing game, less zone-read, and a little smash mouth thrown in.

    If this were really the case though, I don't think they would of fired Messingham. They easily could of pointed to the last two games as progress and kept him but they didn't.

    Re: Lee-Campbell hints toward OC direction, wants to compete

    To me it means that the OC of the future will have that same mentality. At least, I hope so anyway....

    K was running the offense the last two games, not Mess.

    Re: Lee-Campbell hints toward OC direction, wants to compete

    Things that seem to be pretty apparent at this point:
    - Klenakis was pretty significantly involved with game planning/in-game play calling towards the end of the season.
    - He is being seriously considered for the OC position and even if he doesn't get it will likely have quite a bit of input on who is chosen and it would be someone he feels like he can work well with.


    When all is said and done, more is said than done
