    Shawn "Shortbus" Watson is the OC for the fuskers! Not just in name. He'll actually be calling plays! hooray!

    The NU assistants are pretty underwhelming. If you're going to hire a guy who has never been a head coach before, you would think you would want to surround him with quality assistants. But I guess not.

    they'll be better this year.

    shortbus shawn had his shortcomings but his playcalls generally didn't allow the offense to beat itself. this strategy works particularly well when you have superior athletes to your opponents. see CU in 01. but, if you get into trouble and need a little creativity, well, then you are screwed. see CU in 01.

    if the fuskers have recruited as well as the pundits claim they have, then they will be improved on offense. and, compared to clown-a-han, watson knows a little more about how much playbook a college kid can learn and execute. watson still is crazy about all the variations and he puts way too much emphasis on different looks as opposed to better execution, but he is light years better than the clown.

    The D is what is exciting me..... there are some athletes there and they were just left out to dry last year. reports are the intensity is off the hook. Shortbus has his chance, he was getting looks for other jobs already last year, he wont be around long if he can make some noise at NU but make no bones about it, it will be the D that changes the most next year.

    anyways, hope all of you are having a good spring and :drink2:here is to things coming back around our way (NU v CU) for the B12N if things go well.:thumbsup:

    The same D that gave up 40+ points 6 times last year? Not to mention 76 and 65. I would be excited too...:thumbsup:

    you are excited about that defense? :smile2: well, that's why i love college football-- it is spring and we all think our teams are going to be world-beaters.

    i think we are going to see some wac-like scores in the b12 this year. offense will rule the day at ku, mizzery, nu, and CU in the north.

    i do agree that we need to kick the pretenders to the curb and get back to CU v. nu for the whole enchilada. i prefer to hate rivals that i can get a good white-hot hatred going like the fuskers as opposed to these various upstarts. altho mizzery is so freaking obnoxious that i am developing a pretty good hatred for them, too.

    I'm going to try my damnest to get to the NU vs. CU game this season because I haven't gotten to go to one yet. Our defense is going to be better because there was no where to go, but up! I don't think they are going to be world beaters, but I would love to be proved wrong and see a miracle happen. Our offense will still be decent and if our defense can just make it a game we will win some games because of the offense.

    Bubble screen, zone stretch play and 5 yard out patterns on 3 and 7 may just put niblet fan over the edge....

    :lol: to be fair, i admitted the same thing when he was here: if we could have nfl-calibur athletes at every position, his **** would work.

    alas, not every team is so lucky. that translated to widespread joy when he was gone.

    Well, then it sounds like we don't want him going to USC anytime soon then. I'm not sure on how he's going to be as an offensive coordinator considering the only times I got to see him actually call plays last season were pretty small.

    Consider this: Remember 62-36? Well, that was the product of about 5 different plays run by a team that had two NFL O-Linemen, an NFL WR, an NFL TE, and an NFL running back.
