My take:  Slade didn’t quite fit into the offensive system this year and we didn’t tailor the offense to him because we had 2-3 backs that were already well suited for it.  If Slade goes to a team that adjusts to better suit his skills he’ll be fantastic and live up to the 5 star billing.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems like we already tried that and we ended up with a ridiculously talented WR group that can’t produce.  That lead to losing top talent because now the perception is that we can’t develop talent. I see this hire as acknowledgement and correction of that troubling trend.

I have very little knowledge of the Xs and Os but I always saw Hamler as the guy who was best running underneath routes that he could turn into big plays, aided by someone like like Chisnea (Shorter?) taking the top off of a defense.

The big thing I’m hoping for is a better feel for the game, and calling plays that fit a plan and our personnel to keep the defense guessing.  Rahne improved in this area since last year but it still had a randomness at times.

I love Daryl Clark, he’s one of my favorite players ever because of the heart and emotion he played with but he suffered at times from horrendous accuracy.  In fact I’m not sure there’s a single thing he did better than Trace.  You talk about the talent around Trace making him look better than he really was, but Clark’s teams featured a ton of NFL talent including on defense.  I also believe the Spread HD better fit the talent we had as compared to the current system.  

Plug Trace into ‘09 and ‘08 and we’re probably a split MNC at least one of those years if not both.

I believe Franklin knows the recipe to the next level and it’s not with promoting from within, it’s one I heard best articulated on PAPN:  have a “face” at head coach and then two amazing coordinators paid so well they’d only leave for a top power five HC gig.  

There’s room to speculate but if the new contract has a couple million each for OC and DC, then this situation with Rahne and the long wait makes a lot of sense.  The path to being Oklahoma or Clemson is either have a football savant as HC (Day, Reilly, or Saban) or the face HC (Dabo), plus top OC and DC.  

I think we’re going to back up a dump truck full of cash and land a splashy name at OC, and if that happens it would follow that Pry’s days are also numbered.

I really hope Hamler goes.  Nearly every game I have to hold my breath after he gets tackled, hoping he is ok.  After all he’s done for this program I really want him to go get paid and make us proud at the next level.

So happy to see him quickly become a feature of that offense.  When was the last time we had 2 starting RBs in the NFL?  It makes Sunday’s that much better having so many former lions to root for.

Comment 08 Dec 2019

This sucks.  What a disappointment to have to play a lose-lose game after one of our better seasons.  No way to polish this one, just another reason playing in the Big Ten ruins everything.  This conference, while lucrative for he program, is horrible for the fans.
