    First, I know this is complete speculation. However I want to look at something else besides how ****ed we are ATM. And these names have been bandied about a lot on multiple boards. I love their positives, but this is a serious concern of mine. So I want to hear the boards thoughts. Let's look to the future eh?

    The problem:
    Where are the xs and os? To my knowledge neither has ever been a coordinator at any level. That is a trait they share with the hawk. I don't see EB coming in and keisau going happily back to position coach. I know there are a lot of positives to these guys... But I am tired off ppl learning how to plan and call games on cus dime... See: Shawn Watson, helfy, and now keisau. The defensive side of the ball is of course a complete ? ATM, but I am sure that embree would hire someone competent... I just really want a bright xs and os guy around so that for once cu can consistently out game plan and adjust better than the next guy....

    Thoughts?

    Snowbuff: We've got X's & O's coming out our ASS right now and you can see the various "grouping" and the resulting cluster****. What we need is someone who understands what it means to be a warrior and strap it on. EB and Embo know.

    I think we need a combination. Right now we're all x's and o's (reportedly, although it is hard to tell...) and no passion. I share SB's concern that under Embree/EB we'd be all passion, no x's and o's. I'm not sure either way is the way to win, although if you have to go all one way or the other all passion is probably my preference. I am VERY tired of watching uninspired performances coached by apparently indifferent coaches.... :sad1:

    I think Hawk believes x's and o's are hugs and kisses. :huh:

    Well can you let JE or EB hire a coaching staff before you start picking apart their x's and o's?


    You can have all the X's and O's you want but if you don't have players, you aren't going to win..

    EB and JE would improve our recruiting immediately.


    And F Kiesau, what the hell has he done? He's allegedly a receiver coach (now an OC) yet we have a bunch of 5-8 walk-ons as our starters.. Why should I care if he's demoted or off the staff?

    We've recruited WR's pretty well and if you want to talk about recruiting ability based on **** that happened 5 years ago, look at who Keisau was able to bring to CAl.

    We have? They can't even start over walk-ons.



    CAL isn't missing Kiesau..

    I was basing that on the vaunted Recruiting rankings.
