    Memo to CU AD: New coach should.....

    go back to our roots and instill a power running game. Paul Johnson has proven that you can run the flexbone at a high level (and, uh, didn't Nebraska have some success with this not too long ago?). Let's steal Ken N. from Navy or Troy Calhoun from AFA. I think Tyler Hanson could be effective running the flexbone.

    I'm sick of not having an offensive identity. With teams running the spread more and more, defenses are adjusting by putting safeties at LBs, LBs at DEs and DEs at DT. Let's line up and knock these guys down the field. I think we could be ahead of the curve by moving to a power running game.

    We can't block cause we're soft. That's the coaches fault (and the strength coach's fault). Get someone in there who won't coddle them.

    Georgia Tech had success moving from Chan Gailey (a "player's coach") to smashmouth ball within one year. We've got to find a coach that can instill a smashmouth mentality into the players. Hey, I'm not saying we can win the B12 next year by running a flexbone, but we can damn sure be better than where we are now.
