    I thought part of him being hired was that he agreed to retain the current staff.

    There wasn't an OC when Leach was there was there?

    That would make more sense.

    No there wasn't, but I would promote from within. Keep the same system, this amazes me.

    Neal Brown looks like a good hire to TT at OC.

    I did not know that Troy had racked up that many yards last year.

    What kind of system did he run at Troy?

    We're lucky he didn't come after Herman

    I don't know if anyone else on the staff could run it as effectively. If that offense isn't run precisely it will not work at all. You may look at the bowl game as an indication someone could but that was one game within the sme season. I don't know if whoever was on that staff could sustain it.

    Also I don't think your hire TT to come in and do the same things. He knows what he is doing on his own. If they hired him with the intention of nothing changing this will not work. If they wanted that they should have hired McNeil.

    Actually the young kid Lincoln Riley called the game in bowl and the offense did not look any different to me...

    TT at TT will be very interesting. Tech was distinguished by its style as much as its winning ways. If they had the same string of bowl appearances, but played a more formal style, I don't think they would have the same attraction. Trading a pirate for a riverboat gambler looks like a good move, on paper.

    But if they miss a bowl game next year expect all hell to break loose. I'm guessing the transition between offenses won't be horrible, but I wonder if the talent currently at Tech won't calibrate very well to the slight changes. Tuberville's two other rookie seasons were not memorable.

    If the guy that hired them didn't see anyone on the staff that he wanted to
    promote to the position why do you think the new guy would?

    Compare Rice's first year with Tom Herman to their second year. It's not magic.

    I'm surprised they didn't go after Ken OKeefe.
