    "Every week they put in 30-40 new personnel groupings, so they're basically rolling out a new playbook every week."

    I expect Hawks offensive philosophy is the same...

    This is a GREAT philosophy with an experienced team that can pick up the new packages quickly, but it strikes me that this would be something you wouldn't want to do with a younger team.

    It also works when you are Boise and have and entire spring or December to get ready for one big opponent.

    The rest of the year playing in a crap conference with better players than the other team it does not matter who is on the field.

    The Boise offense/HC pipeline failed at ASU. It is failing at CU. Once you get into big conference football, and playing good teams almost every week all the player groups are easily countered by the teams with superior talent and superior coaching.

    It did well at Arkansas until those nuts forced Nutt out, and he seems to be doing well at mississippi

    This is not intramurals. Let's simplify the offense. We can hold up big flash cards and hope the defense doesn't figure it out! Great!

    Big flash cards seem to work for Toledo and Okie Light

    I'm guessing by "new" they really mean "tweaked" for the next opponent. Too much work otherwise.
