Couldn't do better than the staff we have right now! Amazing.
In all honesty, I think the world of Chad and think he did great things, but I don't think he would have won in 2016. His play calling in 2015 was getting a bit predictable, which hurt us in the Natty that year. I think we just needed a wrinkle on his system to get over the hump.
People don’t give chad enough credit. He took an anemic offense and immediately made it explosive. He didn’t have 2 different generational talents at qb. He didn’t have good offensive lines.
He threw too many screens for my taste and would abandon the run too easily, but he was still a stellar coach.
I would actually contend that we would only have won 1 of our nattys if we didn’t have the chad. We wouldn’t have gotten Deshaun Watson without him. Also, without us winning the first natty, we may not have gotten Trevor Lawrence. Who knows, but this thread is stupid.
well, when you say "immediately," let's remember that many of us were squeaking around uncomfortably in our chairs after that first half against whatever FCS team we were starting with that year. Things got better, and I'll never forget how exciting Tigernet was back when we were getting those first video practice highlights of the team doing no-huddle drills. We just knew something special was brewing.
I think 2015 and possibly 2016 may have been similar, but I think he too needed a Streeter. DW4 obviously fit CM's style, but he seemed lost when Stoudt had to play. Not sure how well he would have juggled the KB TL rotation.
