    Yes, and for good reason. Normally you'd never want such a thing on the main board, because as we've seen several times over these two months, there is potential for chaos. This is kind of a unique situation in that it's best for a little contained chaos to happen in this one thread rather than it spilling over into the main board all willy nilly.

    I'm of the opinion, and I've said this before, that not every coach can get you past the 9 win plateau. You're going to have to risk something in that hire. Special is rarely safe.
  3. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    I'd consider it flavor of the month. Fact is, he hasn't done enough to get that kind of legitimate credit. He's potentially a great hire. To be a splash, IMO, the hire must come with a lot less risk.

    That statement is a far cry from "miraculously improve" don't you think? Tanner is the QB we have, and there's no strong correlation shown in the last half of the season where he's clearly played better, between the blocking at the time and his quality of play.
  5. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    The flexbone is still a very workable offense, there is nothing to outdate. It's just limited, and it takes considerable practice time and a good play caller to make it work. I think the point is, if you're using Johnson's team as an example of why you should use it, it's a better example of functionality than optimum choice.

    His highs are higher than Pelini but his lows are much lower.
  7. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    The last two games have been two of Tanner's best, statistically, and I dont think many would claim great blocking.

    There's actually a fair amount of difference in how they go about it. As to the wins, you may want to check again. He's hit 9 wins twice in the last 8 years. He could be staring down his second losing season in 3 years if he doesn't beat Georgia.

    Would it surprise you if I said Wisconsin was 71st in ypc last year? Or 94th the year before that? Yeah, go back beyond that and they're regularly top 10 or so. But recently, when we are pretending they have some kind of running blueprint that we need to emulate? No, not anywhere near what we make them out to be. Ohio State of recent is, by far and away, the best rushing team in this conference of bad rushing teams.

    Why do you think that style is only done at the likes of Navy? People copy everything else.
  11. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    I've never understood this offense. It feels extremely outdated at times. Instead of using angles and spacing to run the ball, we invite all the defenders into the box for a tea party.
  12. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    It's one example, and a good one because they shut down that running game until we forced them to respect something else. We used to have these conversations all of the time back then, especially during the bowl drought. It only got romanticized as some magical way to play in more recent years. There are good reasons why you don't see everyone line up in heavy sets and try to power through everything these days. There are better ways of doing things.

    We went shotgun to open up the game vs Tennessee? We had only 69 yards rushing in the first half with Frost averaging 0.4 ypc.
