    Re: Mangino in the press box?

    IMO this is best case scenario. OC, Mangino, in the box, and QB coach, Sturdy, down on the field.

    Better view to call plays from above, and if there's a QB issue he can talk to Sturdy, and Sturdy can relay the message to the QB. Sturdy should have the best relationship with the QB's, so communication should be simple.

    Re: Mangino in the press box?

    I prefer the OC in the box, and not being QB coach.

    With the rework of the offense, he may need to watch the field and focus on the first half. It may help him from getting too wrapped up on the field.

    I'm just confused by this. It's not like he'd be in there because it's nicer and has controlled climate while the players play in the conditions. He's there to gain a competitive advantage over the opposing team by seeing the whole field and what they're doing.

    On a different note, do you think he ever conveys to our defense what he sees with their offense? It feels like the defensive coordinator is always on the sideline while the offensive is in the box.

    Re: Mangino in the press box?

    IMO, the OC should be in the box. Position coaches on the field to deal with in game adjustments. And in our case, CPR is down there for motivation/inspiration.

    Overall, I think it is difficult and problematic to implement big changes during the game. Therefore, just keep the best offensive mind (easily Mangino on our offensive staff) in the box where he can identify what of our stuff will work the best, and relay the details to the position coaches to make minor adjustments based on what the defense is doing.

    Pretty much agree with you. Its kinda like having God look down on you.

    Re: Mangino in the press box?

    I would usually prefer on the field, but when you have a brilliant guy like Mangino who can see and understand what is happening on the field, the press box is probably better.

    Re: Mangino in the press box?

    Well all I know is that a big chunk of the 50,000 fans sitting in the stands all seem to think they have a better idea about how to run the team. So perhaps it is a good idea for him to get the same view!

    If he can get the offense to put points on the board, he can sit wherever the hell he wants.

    In all fairness, this was actually true with Messingham and the offense.

    Mangino, Sturdy, press box...there is a joke in there somewhere and I am surprised that we are nearing post #30 and no one has even attempted. Wes got close but excluded the Sturdy part.
