    Which is going to be better?

    The anticipation of the coaches PR may hire or who he actually gets?

    Hopefully who he actually gets, because so far I am underwhelmed.

    Wow, thanks for ruining my morning. I thought Bliel, Fountain, Price and Ash was a pretty good start.

    Re: Which is going to be better?

    I think it all depends on who he hires for his OC. The way things are shaping up it wouldn't surprise me if Rhoads ends up being the face of the defense - and if you've seen his defenses over the last several years that's not a bad thing.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    I hope that Rhoads is a better defense coach than Cheese Dip Cheesik....

    Being dead last in the big 12 is not good for tix sales in the future!!!

    Me, too.

    I take comfort in knowing that no one here likely can make an accurate evaluation of these new hires.

    At the least, can anyone here match Coach Rhoads' personal and professional knowledge of these guys. Anyone?

    We fans have two main approaches, IMHO, to a topic like this one: 1) The coach knows best; 2) I know best. If I ever come to believe a fan knows better than a coach, I'm outta here. There will be no hope for the program when that day arrives.

    I like the roster of coaches so far, but the OC and DC will tell all.

    But sometimes a person's professional knowledge is clouded by their personal knowledge...

    Re: Which is going to be better?

    OC Hire will tell the story on what direction we are going, how quickly and what influence Rhoads has to get a top shelf coach. I don't even care if it's a young guy from a successful school who under a top shelf OC. Please, no has beens.

    Seems as though Coach Rhoads has been reading your mind . . . or maybe you've been reading his?!

    Maybe I'll be attacked for admitting this prejudice (and maybe I should be) . . . but so far, the staff is variiously experienced, young (Bliel is 49, the oldest so far, I think), and fit. I dislike seeing overweight coaches on the field, seems like it reveals a lack of self-discipline, and football is a game of discipline.

    This staff is lookin' good (double meaning intended).

    (I loath childish namecalling. Those here who immaturely label the overweight say more about themselves than they say about the target of their infantile remarks.)
