    Rivals Position Power Rankings

    Rivals updated there post spring power rankings, and although we didn't get any players ranked up there. Apparrantly they think pretty highly of our coordinators. Burnham ranks at number 21 while Herman is at number 23!

    College Football Power Rankings

    Wouldn't let me link directly to the coordinators so you have to click to it.

    I think we made great coordinator hires. I firmly believe we're going to see a noticeable upgrade in on-field execution and play calling.

    I think that both have proven themselves at the D1 FBS level. Burnham at a BCS school. The thing that I like about Herman outside of the statistics at Rice is that he is smart. Not an OL coach calling plays. He should be able to scheme for defenses. He should be able to plan ahead and be a couple of plays (at least) ahead of what is on the field. At the very least he will be able to think fast enough to avoid delay of game penalties.

    OL coaches aren't smart?

    Re: Rivals Position Power Rankings

    I have no idea about Herman's experience coaching the OL....so be that as it may.....

    It seems like Herman is going to be a great "skill position" (I hate that term) coach, and it seems like he's gonna be great at scheming and getting the most out of our QB, WRs, and RBs. I am just a bit concerned about his ability to develop and coach the OL though. Again, this is for no particular reason other than that you (I) have primarily heard him talking about the QBs, RBs, and WRs. I think Bliel is a good coach, and hope he is up to the task of developing an OL in the Big 12.

    Anybody have any insight on Herman and Bleil's OL coaching/philosophies other than what I can read on cyclones.com? I know Bleil coached OL at Akron and Pitt and that Herman was a grad assistant at Texas working with the OL.
