Anyone hopeful Giofre goes back to being the OL coach and we get an experienced OC after the season?
Also need a real QB coach.. I don’t think our current QB coach is teaching the correct way..
I know we don’t have the cash for a new OC but we need someone to take over with some creativity and one who can make adjustments. This current way is not working.

im just shocked there are still posters here that think this program is going anywhere. It’s over. Administration doesn’t support the program, and the move to the big east couldn’t have been a louder announcement that football was a dead man walking. I was angry for a while and now I am just sad.

We could have Bill Walsh calling plays -- if we don't have any opponents, it really doesn't matter.

Well Randy is coaching like he doesn't give a sheet. He has stated he doesn't give a sheet about next year's schedule. Yet they wonder why fans have seemingly stopped giving a sheet.

Our only chance with winning some games was with a healthy Steve Krajewski. IMO, for different reasons Beaudry and Zerg are not enough to move the chains. The chances of SK coming back at 100% before the end of the season is close to zero. Edsall proved this season with the QB merry go round that he is the most inept coach UConn has ever had. I used to think Paul Pasqualoni couldn't recognize QB talent, Edsall is worse. If SK had been our starter from day one, we definitely would have two wins, and two close losses. If Dave Benedict, who is a football guy, had any b@lls he would have fired Edsall by now and coached the team himself.

I hope it's safe to say that if we don't we'll be up "youknowwhat's" creek if that doesn't happen.. on both fronts (OC & QB coaches)

You're wrong, but I get how PO'd you are.. I am too... Edsall's the better of any of the past few coaching options we've had here.. BUT there's a strong argument that he needs to let go of trying dictate who runs our offense and how they run it.. Let the OC do his thing on that side of the ball.. seriously... Stick with his strong suit (defense)

Coming out of hibernation just to repeat - this school does not support the program, they won’t authorize even a competitive coordinator salary, so don’t expect much.
Then, unless, we convince an up and coming offensive mind from the FCS level that is killing it on that side of the ball, and no one has really heard of them just yet, we may be up "youknowwhat's" creek

Wrong? I don't think so, but thanks for the reply. :)

I'm hoping that as Beaudry gets more games under is belt our offensive will become more productive. Maybe we beat Umass. I do agree with you that Steve Krajewski is the most talented quarterback on our roster. Edsall mindset has always been when in doubt go with the guy who is less likely to make mistakes rather than the guy that has the higher upside and is more likely to score the most points. Edsall still thinks that you can win games in our conference scoring 21 points a game. Krajewski should have been the starter from day one. SMU scored over 40 points in the first half against South Florida. There is no way that under perfect weather conditions and at home with the talent that we have on our roster that we don't score at least 40 points against South Florida for the entire game. Edsall and our OC inability to deal with South Florida's blitzes cost us the game. Its not like they didn't know it was coming. All they had to do was watch game film from the week before. I think we actually have better talent on this team on both sides of the ball than we had in 2017 although younger and maybe less experience. Yet, there is no way we score anywhere near the points we scored in 2017. Edsall is a better program manager then the two previous coaches but he is a terrible offensive coach.

It's not even close, but he's out now anyway. I pray you are right that Beaudry can improve, I hope Edsall or someone else can teach him what a pocket is. He has some physical FBS tools so let's hope.

I thought the QB play Saturday was o.k. Which made it one of the few parts of our team to reach that lofty level.

But as to this OC not getting it done, I am in full agreement. But I don't know that you're getting anyone in here to take the job that wouldn't be as big a gamble as Giofre was.

i don’t think there is any doubt.

to get an innovative mind that would coach for peanuts UCONN would have to think outside the box which they are utterly incapable of.

Actually interview a non recycled coach who has a passion for the game and a bright mind. That means really doing due diligence. Again, something UCONN is utterly incapable of.
