  1. Did anyone say he was being hired only for his recruiting chops? Make no mistake, though, it's his "recruiting chops" that got him the offer.
  2. Hes a DB coach. Not a head coach or coordinator. Them being 3-9 has nothing to do with him. I disagree with your premise (that positions coaches have nothing to do with record), but agree that he's not responsible for 3-9, if for no other reason than he was only hired to Arizona this year. But there is something to be said in that he's never been part of a winning culture, as far as I can tell. San Jose St was terrible while he was there, for example. In the end, he's being hired because he's supposed to be a great recruiter - will be interesting to see if he can pull kids to NU as well as he seems to have pulled to Arizona during a partial recruiting cycle. I find it interesting that some here are not eviscerating him for lasting less than a year at Arizona - essentially bailing on his commitment there. Personally, I have not much problems with a coach jumping, especially if the players/recruits are able to bail, too, if needed.
  3. They could within the paradigm of the market. If NU wanted to pay coordinator money for him to be a position coach, they may let him go. On the flip side, not just money may hold him in Arizona. His recruiting on the west coast is easier to maintain on a P12 team. And for junior assistants, picking a region/conference has an enormous impact on career geographic trajectory. He may decide he wants to stay in the west/southwest rather than transition to the B10 country. I've not read his full bio though.
  4. If we really wanted him Arizona couldnt keep up with us in the $$$ department.Not sure that's true. Every P5 program has a ton of revenue. http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/finances/ With 10% of this coming from the academic side at U of A. The athletic department itself doesn't have the money Nebraska does and there's no way they are asking for a bigger subsidy to increase an assistant coaches salary.Hey, cm is never wrong. All p5 programs make the same amount money. All p5 programs can pay as much as every other one to their coaches. Just look, all p5 programs coaches make the the same amount. Resisting the urge to call you out on your foolish conclusion jumping.
  5. I thought it was common knowledge how to distinguish between P5 schools and non-P5 schools. Guess that's why common knowledge is said to be an oxymoron.

The athletic department itself doesn't have the money Nebraska does and there's no way they are asking for a bigger subsidy to increase an assistant coaches salary.It's not clear why the subsidy is set up that way (maybe a tax structure?) but per the chart (from what I can read on my phone), Arizona's revenue outpaces expenses by $8mm. Which appears to double nebraska's "profit margin."
  7. Plays like this is why his performance has been criticized. And rightfully so when you get steam rolled like that. He was tripped. But don't let facts stand in the way of a good narrative.

  9. Seems like a good move for both teams. NU gets a good recruiter per the recruitniks (hard to tell since he hasn't been in CFB or with any specific team for very long) who has relationships with specific targets. Williams puts a big name program on his resume, which is key for a young coach.
  10. Read in context, that's not what epley said.
  11. Not to mention how little we threw deep over the middle. Seemed the read was always fly route up boundary. TA looked good on a couple of deep crossing patterns. But we don't throw a post much.
  12. I misread your post. Not sure if you saw before you posted that I edited my reply. I think we agree that Utter has been under appreciated.
  13. Let's avoid clouding the fact that it's been more than "armchair" coordinators and "anonymous" people critiquing Utter. Inappropriate bashing is one thing, but Utter has had a lot of issues this year. Matt Vrzal, Damon Benning and Jay Foreman have been among those who believed his technique and effort have been lacking this year. I'm glad he's getting some type of praise but much of the honest critiques surrounding his performance have been well-founded. Sure, they critiqued him when he was at his low aka sprained ankle. But not all year long. Edit: sorry, 'misunderstood your post. I thought you were referring to the PFF site Iirc, NU's OL, and evenUtter specifically, were grading very well during the first half of the season. Utter has been over maligned based on a reasonable comparison of other P5 linemen. Doesn't mean he's perfect either.
