    I’m surprised no one has tried to bring back the Run and Shoot offense considering the new rules geared against the defense. I’m hoping this spread offense stuff is just a fad and eventually goes away. I’m no fan of the Big XII and all the high scoring games there either.

    Because of Sean McVay’s success some teams are getting ridiculous. It’s crazy that two teams want to interview Kliff Kingsbury. He couldn’t cut it at his alma mater, what makes them think he can be successful in the NFL?

    I see what your saying. But it would be interesting thing to see. I would love to be wrong and it happen. However another reason I wouldnt see him leaving Clemson both of his sons are on the team and with his family first mind set he wouldnt leave them.

    Why not? If teams are wanting to interview former Big XII QBs that just got fired as head coaches in college, Applewhite fits the bill also.

    Well he knows how to call the run up the middle for no gain just like O'Brien so you guys would love him here.

    **** reminds me of the NBA when they started allowing teams to play zone cause noone could stop Jordan 1 on 1. I mean if the NFL wants the big 12 shootouts and 45-39 scores like the college game they should just go full on with it & stop trying to distinguish their game.

    Go ahead & take the pic play rules off the books b/c the refs don't call them anyway b/c that's all these college air raid spread offenses are...a bunch of pic plays.

    Defensive players have to be absolutely perfect in their technique when hitting guys or they get flagged. Meanwhile offenses get damn near free reign to do all kinds of ****.

    Yeah it kinda sucks watching other teams repeatedly get away with **** that's supposed to be illegal while we attempt to try to play by the rules, but it is what it is. What ya'll think are "modern passing concepts" is just flat out cheating/skirting of the rules.

    I suppose there's a "if u can't beat em' join them" aspect to it...but then again i'm one of those guys who was partial to the NFL game..didn't start watching college until 2000.

    So I guess Dabo Swinney's going to be the new Bill Cowher around here.

    Should have elaborated little bit more on that. But yea he’s a good motivator for young me but I don’t know if it would work on NFL level per say. He’d probably end up being more like Steve spurrier rather than Pete in the NFL.

    Why on earth would Dabo Swinney want to give up the job he has?

    He could not even get this this team READY for a home town crowd.

    He brought the same crap he did all season and he got schemed to death. Rac too, he got out schemed in every way. We need change.

    Bob ain't goin anywhere. If Dabo came here at all, maybe it would be as the offensive coordinator. It ain't happenin. Just quit. It's Bob for at least another season. Like it or not.

    I agree. I most certainly don't like it, but I agree 100%. Bob ain't going nowhere. He's going to have to totally screw up next season and probably the season after that before they get rid of him.

    Just another phase in the life and years of a Houston football fan.

    Agree. I just gotta keep hoping against hope that he becomes what he is not.

    Agreed, why I think all these "Fire X and bring in Y" are so stupid. As if Cal is lurking on these boards reading this stuff and thinking "you know they're right, I should do that." Hypothetical discussion on what would happen if we did something is cool but most of these are just people venting and ranting as though its actually going to matter.

    There is a big difference in coaching college and the NFL. The X's and O's could be exactly the same, but getting an 18 year old to follow instructions versus a 30 year old is a world of difference.
