He will re-establish that program's history of having very good Qbs
So what would attract him to UConn (rather than perennial powerhouse Wash State)? Except for maybe the opportunity to create offensive excitement and redefine the program. Right now, the offense is a "resting pulse", needs to become more race horse. Offensive football in today's game is much faster than the 60's version that RE & PP were brought up on.
Also what is up with the Connecticut "Inferiority Complex" . . . "I take solace in knowing he would probably never come here anyway"? Why not UConn? A great opportunity, I would think, to put this nouve program on the map.
Leach has no northeast recruiting ties, my guesss has no interest in signing on to a team that is unsure about its BCS qualifing future, and as a passing oriented coach would not want to walk into a situation like UConn's where he would have to completly start over at the receiver and quarterback position.
Precisely why you offer the guy. Edsall has NE recruiting ties and really couldn't recruit at the BCS level. Agree about the BCS qualifying future, but Leach would have likely put UConn in a better position to be offered elsewhere (a strong UConn football program won't then be holding back an excellent overall men's & women's athletic program). Don't agree about the QB & WR positions. First, I believe he would have gotten a lot more production out of the offensive roster this season (and had a better record). Second, QB's & WR's would find the UConn offense exciting with Leach at the helm. He knows a thing or two about playmakers.
