    Always stirring things up, aren't you CW?

    Alford seems like the kind of guy I would want on staff, but he would be a risky hire because he hasn't yet proven himself as an OC. I just don't see Rhoads taking that chance.

    If Saban ends up at Texas, I have been wondering what would happen if he fails to win the NCAA title after his second season there.

    I want Alford back in the worst of ways... Oh, you're not talking about Steve at Iowa? :jimlad: Tony coached some great backs, and what a recruiter. He would always be welcome at ISU in any capacity.

    Wouldn't it be great if Alford came here and gave credit to Lazard for the sales pitch he made on his official visit to Notre Dame?

    I want Saban here. It's a shot across the bow of the SEC and ESPN nd immediately raises the league's cache.

    It's not like we're beating these down Texas squads anyway.

    That sentence should come with an asterisk considering this year's game.

    Regarding the Vikings.. My brother is a huge Vikings fan. Sent me a text on Sunday saying Minnesota can't even screw up tis attemp to get the first draft choice. We keep trying to win. Then baltimore scored and he send me a text back saying, nevermind. I guess we can screw it up. Followed by another text saying Ok we are screweing it up again. I got about 4 texts over the next couple minutes do to all the scoring. Ladies and gents,,, The Vikings. Trying to screw up the first round draft choice is very hard for them to do.

    What kind of offense would Alford run?

    I'm curious how you know he is a bright offensive mind since he has been a position coach. Is it his game planning, call sequencing or adjustments?

    AND he is an insider since he's been on staff before. You know how "we" feel about hiring from within.:smile:

    Seems like a solid choice. He was a running backs coach here, yes? I imagine that might play into CPR's run first mentality. Also, I really hope Saban goes to Texas. Sure they are going to be near impossible to beat, but the Big XII desperately needs at least one of it's flagship programs back.

    I'm a bit confused on the article... it seemed like it began by discussing a hypothetical person to replace Rhoads (which would be Alford) but then, without actually making the transition, just implies that we are now talking about the OC job? ("I have not heard a single word that would indicate Alford is a serious candidate for this job." -- "this job" isn't defined, I guess we all just mentally go to replacing Mess... then again, the RB coach slot is open, too!)

    Then he would win it in his third.
