I was just reading through this old post about the clawfense, on this very site...
I can't help but be caught up by phrases like...
"it is apparently a spready-type, West Coast-ish (emphasis on the "-ish") thing. It's also apparently quite complex."
"Even if it's merely difficult for the players to grasp, there could be a steep and long learning curve, which could signal serious trouble considering our early, front-loaded schedule."
So that is exactly what happened. So is this a case of the wrong personel for the job? Is the system that bad? Did Phil keep it from working by being conservative? If someone like Leech comes in what would be the difference? Are we willing to give some one outside of UT a few years to build an offense, but not extend that same offer to Phil? If our current OC could recruit his type of QB and skill players would this be a formidable team in say 3 years?
Just food for thought.
