Short bus getting high daddy praise
Amazing what you can do with a pantheon of talent.
Watson is actually calling a great game.
Still calling passes late into the 4th. Nice of him.
Does Louisville even have a RB? Bridge water was going to go to The U until Randy Shannon was fired.
And before that he had committed to LSU.
Glad to see he's doing well.
Shawn is one of the good guys. I am glad to see him doing well. With a 12-1 season you have to be doing something right.
That's where I'm at.
Could someone explain to me how Watson became such a whipping boy among CU fans? I mean, he did gameplan and call the beatdown most of the folks here celebrate more than the national championship game.
I can't remember a coordinator that CU fans actually liked. Either they all suck or we are dumb
I can. The early nineties were good times.
I liked Hankwitz. Hard to like any of the coordinators under Hawk or Embree. Lindgren was a little conservative for me, but I think he has a lot of potential.
scary thought. i thought Watson underutilized his available talent at times. Vickers comes to mind....Calhoun transferring but things happen like that. i thought the offense under Hodge should have played to his strengths....not his limited arm. let him make some plays with his feet, get Purify on the corner with a little faux option....instead he's running Pez's dropback plays. in retrospect they were prolly terrified to get Hodge hurt. clock management was a little crappy with Shawn sometimes, seem to recall. i also never really understood the prominence sometimes of the TE and FB positions with SW....and then they would disappear from the offense for long periods.
Watson was a little bit of a dick to me one time. i was poking my head into Folsom one evening as the sun went down and he asked me "can i help you?"...in that "wtf are you doing?" tone. i wanted to say, i work here too and this ain't your stadium...i been coming here since 1976, yo". minor thing, but soured me a little on SW.
Umm maybe the Oregon game in 2001? He didn't adjust in that one. I don't know why folks hate him other than that.
Maybe it was calling passing plays during tornadic wind storm at that Iowa State loss in Ames, or explaining that he studied NU's "D" for four years in coming up with his "62-36" game plan (Four years? It took four years to figure out using Chris Brown and Mackey winner Dan Graham in the same gameplan, was a good idea?) Or maybe that 30-3 loss to NU at Folsom, when CU moved right down the field and scored on the opening drive and yet did squat on "O", the rest of the day. Or the general wastage of Craig Ochs' tenure in Boulder.....just a few of the many Watson "fails", that have endeared him, almost as much as DC Okruch, to Buff fans.
But Watson and Okurch were such good friends of Barnett, that has to count for something, right?
Wait, wut??? Is a staff move coming? Will that make slider happy? Something needs to knock him out of his poopy pants funk.
Maybe it took so long because we didnt have Brown and Graham before? And really since too...
I can't believe he's being considered for the Louisville job, doubt he gets it but still.
I heard he was a moron.
Genuine Short Busser.
Texas OC ?
He was my neighbor and his kids went to school with my kids. He is definitely not a moron. But he is a tireless worker. He pretty much was NEVER around.
For that reason alone I wish the best for him. That and his success makes Pelini look more idiotic, if that is possible?
UT fans have been going absolutely ape **** at the possibility of Watson. Flooding Patterson (AD) and Strong's inbox. Rumor has it they may hire Lincoln Riley - OC at East Carolina. Yet another coach from the Mike Leach tree.
Yeah, he did SOOOO much for the Fuskers' "O"! Just as he did for the Buffs. Louisville played a mediocre FBS sked and Watson thrived, with that top notch QB, against it. If he can do it against consistently good teams remains an open question.
Your story about Watson never being around, reminds of grad school when the most average guy in our class spent 12 hrs. a day in the Library! If the Library opened at 8:00, he was there and in at 7:59 and they kicked him out at closing. Never around for a beer or watching a game, but he sure could grind and yet it made him such a mediocre intellect all the way through.
( Yeah, yeah, I know: "Well, what did that make YOU?"........I dunno, drunk and content from not breathing library dust?)
For criss sakes he coach the buffs once upon a time. Why the hate?
Because he left on his own rather than getting fired. Therefore, he sucks.
