    I would love to sit down with Mangino....

    .... after he's taken a truth serum, and then watch every single one of ISU's football games from last year.

    I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about football (insert jokes here, I know), but I would love to hear Mangino's flat out honest critique of our offense last year.

    I would wait to see the offense's production this year before you assume it is going to be head and shoulders better than last year.

    Tom Herman agrees. Winning with our talent and/or depth is pretty tough.

    The type of guys that we think are REALLY good for us are a dime a dozen in the Big 12.

    They were at KU in 2007, too.

    I tend to agree with this, however, this year I'd at least like to see some intelligent playcalling. Whether or not we have the talent to make it work is a whole other issue, but I'd at least like to see plays ran that make sense.

    Running your QB more times than all your RBs combined is not intelligent playcalling. Not making any teams that blitz you pay for it by throwing a quick slant to the TE or WR in the area vacated by the blitzing LBs, is not smart playcalling. And trying to run it down Iowa's throat for 3 quarters, when their weakness is their secondary, is not smart playcalling.

    Seriously, you never would want to sit down with an actual football coach and review film of a game. Within ten minutes, it would become apparent to you, that you actually know nothing about the game of football. A coach would point out things that you likely have NEVER even noticed. You may even decide that you know so little that you conclude that perhaps you should no longer post your football opinions on CF. None of us want that.........

    Re: I would love to sit down with Mangino....

    I think people will be in for a rude awakening if they think this offense will be as good as they think. If you look at teams that get new OC's who run a different system, the first season isnt as good as some thought it would be, but the second season is usually where the lightbulbs come on.

    Re: I would love to sit down with Mangino....

    I read the thread title and automatically though: "...for lunch". Is that bad? But in all seriousness, I know many are saying we should temper our expectations for the offense. The way I see it, he is not just taking last year's offensive team but a potentially better team on offense than last year. Wimberly is available and healthy, and newcomers Lazard and Montgomery should be able to contribute. Add a healthy QB, and we might have something.

    The other thing is that he is taking over for a bad OC (not even a mediocre one), so in comparison the offense should look that much better anyway. Sure, we won't be Baylor-like on offense, but after how horrible we were last year, any step in the right direction will feel like a huge improvement.

    Ha. Everyone thinks they are a comedian these days I guess?

    By the way, I would find it fascinating to sit down with an actual football coach.

    Re: I would love to sit down with Mangino....

    I actually do think we will be considerably better on offense. Mess was bad and Herman is only good against equal talent. Mangino is experienced at doing more with less. Add healthy QB and healthy O-line and I believe we will be very competitive.

    It's funny how nearly every thread devolves into the same conversation.

    Getting to the point where it is simply a talent issue would be head and shoulders above the past.

    And I bet Herman would agree- which is why he was not a good fit. All offenses do better when you have the superior talent, but some require it. Winning with our talent and/or depth takes a talented OC.
