    Re: Spring Football Preview: The offense

    Good stuff Chris!

    I hope the ManGenius can make the learning curve small. I'd love to see these guys come right out of the gate and hang 30+ on North Dakota State. That may be wishful thinking, but that's why I'm a fan!

    Also, I can't believe you wrote an article about the offense and didn't mention Lazard once! It will be interesting to see where he fits in this year with a WR group that appears to be quite talented and deep.

    Oh yeah, football. Isn't it wonderful to have a compelling basketball team that doesn't let you really focus on spring football?

    Re: Spring Football Preview: The offense

    One thing that will be interesting to watch with the wide receivers. Mark Mangino made it pretty clear on the call in show that you better excel at blocking if you want to play.

    Re: Spring Football Preview: The offense

    It's all about line play. If the line blows again, the offense will be awful again. I know its popular to hang this on Mess, but not even Jesus himself could have gotten much out of offense with that horsehit line last year. QB play didn't help either.

    I just focused on guys who will participate in spring drills, hence why Lazard was not mentioned.

    Ahh yes I'm an idiot. I think I'm at the point I just assume Lazard is on campus, not playing basketball in the state tournament.

    Tom Farniok, center – He’s a dude.
    Was there ever any doubt?

    I think Jesus would make a fine OC and would also be a great OL coach if allowed to focus solely on that area. Compassionate leader, walks on water.

    I figured it's a part of his media blackout

    I think you have to have Moses as OL coach, if he can teach that whole parting the seas thing we could really open up some nice running lanes.

    Re: Spring Football Preview: The offense

    O-line play needs to be much improved, and if players stay healthy it will be (knock on wood). In saying that there was certainly more Mess could have done to work past the struggles, IMO.

    Re: Spring Football Preview: The offense

    CPR has been missing a "good" offense his entire time here. I'm hoping this year will be that. (Or at least closer to that)
