    Maybe he can make our defense look as good as he made everyone else’s look last season.

    Could be that someone handed him a map of the red zone and he got lost. He's out there backpacking between the twenties

    If true I hope Frost uses at least one of the two openings to bring in an experienced Power 5 coordinator level coach. Or hire an “analyst” at that level. I realize it is much easier to totally blame Riley recruits for a 9-15 record, but that seems a bit like partial blindness.

    I think Frost realized after last years collapse that MR and the players aren't all to blame. Think that is why we are seeing staff departures.

    So there are currently two mysteries:

    1) Helfrich is coming
    2) Walters is OUT.

    we could have Nick Saban, Dabo Swinney, Urban Meyer or any of those guys and their records wouldn’t be much different then Frost is now. We definitely have some talent issues...that’s for sure.

    Only thing is Helfrich has always been a QB Coach/OC. I think in an ideal world, he would like to have Helrich doing that and Matt Lubik coaching WR's.

    sorry but I don’t see any head coach out there turning some of our players that wouldn’t start on another power 5 team into all stars. I never said they’d go the exact same record...just that they struggled too.

    Except their playing in the B1G not the Pac 12...

    Frost is smart enough to know by now that he has to run the ball effectively in this conference compared to the PAC 12..

    He apparently is smart enough and he is running the ball...we are the 3rd ranked rushing team in the BIG 10 this year only behind OSU and Wisconsin.

    Interesting first post. Maybe I can clear up the confusion by reminding you that Helfrich was also the Head Coach at Oregon when they played for a National Championship, was the OC at Oregon when they played for another National Championship and was part of some of the most prolific offenses in CFB history.

    Nick Saban also sucked in the NFL as well...and we all seen how they played out when he came back to the college level.

    You don't think Oregon was effective running the ball?

    Wasn't Oregon one of the best rushing teams while Helfrich was there?

    Helfrich hasn't coached WR. He has experience as a QB and RB coach, in addition to OC and HC. Not sure how the assistant coaching positions would be juggled if Helfrich were hired as an OC. Beckton coached WRs at UCF, including Brandon Marshall.

    Sorry, but if he ran swing sideline plays all game those would be passing yards. And yet, we were 3rd in rushing in conference.

    I didn’t like the swing passes either, for what it’s worth. But we did run the ball well at times this year...

    I’m a little lost here...simply put, we were running the ball and averaged over 220 yards a game the final 5 games of the year. And two of those games were against Top 10 defenses in Iowa and Wisconsin.

    Unfortunately for Helfrich Oregon's recruiting dropped off after Frost left. Coincidence? Ummm no. Helfrich as an OC or offensive analyst would be just fine IMO. We all know who the OC is for this team and its Frost.

    Supposedly Lubick was going to be the OC if Walters ended up staying at UCF. So bringing him in, in some capacity makes some sense. Of all the coaching changes and potential coaching changes, Im a bit surprised, as bad as the D has been that Chins name hasn't been mentioned at least in rumors.

    The problem wasn’t running the ball it was completing passes down the field in the seams when we need too...
