Discussion in 'UConn Football' started by Confident Carl, Jan 2, 2017.
I'm confused by Weist. He seems like a good coordinator when given the opportunity, why is there not more demand for his services? Especially since multiple jobs at the P5 Level come up yearly. Maybe he goes with Taggert, but the wife may like it in Sunny Florida. Maybe he looks for a position in The SEC/ACC? As for Edsall, like most coaching hires connect the dots. Odds are the coordinators have coached with him before, or are connected to coaches that have.

TJ coached closely with Coach Foley during that brief period after Pasqualoni and was quite surprised that Coach Foley wasn't in the first round of named hires given the success the first time around with HCRE.
Did you watch any UConn football between the years 2000-2004?
If so, which QB on the roster from 2005-2010 gave us a better chance to win throwing it 40 times a game vs. utilizing 2 future NFL running backs?
Donald Brown + Jordan Todman > Every UConn QB not named Dan Orlovsky.
You come here (nearly) every day and say the same thing over and over. It's not optimistic, it's not original, it's not funny, it's not insightful, it isn't even accurate. I'm sure in real life you're a nice guy, but your act here is beyond tired.
Evidently you aren't familiar with what TDH has been posting for a decade. The way he sees it, the more often you throw the ball the better your chances are to win.
If it is not Weist, who would be your second or third choices?
I am familiar, going back to the last board too. Just once I'd like for him to admit the Dan Orlovsky years happened, that Edsall had no problem giving the green light to his QB, and that the problem wasn't Edsall's dislike of the forward pass, but the fact we had two straight NFL running backs.
Edsall deserves all the criticism for not landing/developing another QB. Repeatedly saying Edsall just doesn't want to ever throw the ball is ignorant.
I'm convince he just keeps beating the drum so that the day we land a quality QB, and inevitably start throwing the ball more, he can give himself a pat on the back for being "right" about something as obvious as "you're a better team when you can successfully throw the ball downfield"
Rivals has Weist at 2 stars. He is an under the radar guy.
WTF!!! I'm getting pissed. Can we just names the coordinators please?!?!
New season starts at midnight and we have to start flipping.
This really is odd. Unheard of almost.
No, it's fine. Everything Randy does is fine. It's the new normal around here.
I am picturing in my mind this:
Every member of the incoming staff is staged at various airports/ hotels throughout the country. The clock strikes 12:01am tomorrow and boom.....they're off and driving....
Somewhere around mid-morning, we see a press release of the remaining staff followed up by another 12 releases with verbal commits, each containing the 3-4* variety..
I am going with this theory. Will help me sleep tonight.
We have named our new OC:
Reminds me of GDL if he dressed like Diaco.
Nevermind. Nothing to see here
TJ will still be a hero in UConn lore.
Thank god this is over.
Still need a WR coach
This scene reminds me of this thread after hiring Lashlee.
You good today?
Nailed it - except it was 9:50
