hat doesn't surprise me at all. It says it all when a few games ago
the young guys on offense tell the sports reporters they like running
the ball out of the I-formation and you continue to see an absolute
random offense that continues to blow up.
Look at the quarterback coach's bio. According to the media guide he
has been the offensive coordinator at CU since 2006(sarcasm intended).
He is 34 years old and is presently the YOUNGEST offensive
coordinator at a BCS school. He was quarterback coach at Boise State
in 1998-2000. He was quarterback coach at Arizona State in 2001-
2005. He has NEVER been an offensive coordinator until coming to CU
in 2006. He has no clue regarding what a running game is all about.
It is no surprise that players are wondering what has been going on.
They already questioned the offensive running game several games ago.
In my opinion, he designed the shotgun offense around what one
quarterback can and can't do. He has shown no interest in, or
attempt at, developing a true running game. Why should he? He is a
quarterback coach. He sees the offense as having one quarterback
pull rabbits out of his hat on every play to win games. In my stark
opinion, the quarterback coach has attempted to ingratiate himself
with the head coach through one quarterback. Some of you won't like
what I have said here. It doesn't bother me. I think I speak the
unspeakable truth. Some of you will cling to the offensive line
problems. Yes, the line has problems, but the ROOT of the offensive
problems go back to 2006 and the quarterback coach; and the spring of
2008 and what the quarterback coach has done with the offense.
