i think that's fine.

in fact i wish we were a lot faster paced than we are.

people may laugh at this, but i would love to have gus mahlzahn running the offense with cam again. he found the best way to utilize cam's abilities because he really does tailor his offense around his personnel, but he's also very innovative but uses much of the same basic principles used by NFL offenses. the thing that i loved most about what he did, though, is his no huddle, hurry up offense. the key for it was snapping the ball no more than 5 seconds after the spot on every down. this wears down defenses, taking away chances for them to adjust to what's going on and creates a whole lot of opportunity for the offense.

i don't really have a dog in this fight as to who we hire after rivera, but i don't want it to be a predictable offense or defense and i'd rather them be innovative to make it difficult for the league to adjust to. the key, though, is going to be in adaptability and variety.


I have long been a huge fan of Gus Malzahn. I would fully endorse him as the OC. From my understanding he also was the one responsible for recruiting Cam. I'd imagine that he has a great relationship with Cam and would be able to put Cam in a position to succeed... and generally when the QB succeeds, the team succeeds.

I love the "no coordinators" "no college coaches" argument

How do people get head coaching jobs?!? Are they born into the position??? No they work there way up the ranks.

If an ex-head coach is available, there is a reason. He must have been passed over for numerous head coaching jobs prior. Just like Rivera was. so lets not go down that road again

*Shaw would be a great HC here

the problem i have is the learning curve in the game management department.

i was fine with it when we hired rivera. i don't think we have that luxury anymore. whoever comes in has to be able to affect the team in a positive way right away. they have to come in knowing what to do rather than trying to figure it out on the way. just my opinion, but i think this team needs to be on the fast track for success and that will likely involve someone that doesn't have to learn or grow into the HC job.

to get one that is really worth hiring JR will probably have to spend some serious $$ as well.

Rivera's problem was just stupid coaching. Or it could be he just isn't cut out to be a head coach. For some reason, every team in the league saw this except us. David Shaw has command over his team. He's also played a key role in Andrew Luck's development, and now it looks like he's done the same with Nunez. If there is one guy who capatilizes in teaching QBs with athletic ability to be pocket passers, its David Shaw. I think if we could get him, be HC or OC, our team would improve a thousand percent. Especially Cam.

Don't get me wrong, I love the spread offense. I'm not disputing that it doesn't work. What I am mostly concerned about is his offense being a spread rushing attack type of offense that is reliant on being much faster/quicker than the defense. Call me out if I am wrong (I don't watch alot of Oregon games), but that's what his offense seems like to me. You are 100% right about him having no NFL experience being a big red flag though. I'm not a huge fan of him really... I like Shaw much better, although he isn't exactly proven yet.


I think many people who believe Kelly's system would work at the NFL level have never watched an Oregon game.

Kelly's success is based almost completely on a version of the read option and some of the guys crying most about OUR read option want to bring Kelly here...

I hope Oregon gets a chance to play the closest version of an NFL defense in college football in the national championship: Alabama.

Discipline, speed and ability to beat individual blocks are the keys to stopping Oregon....any option offense, really.

The more of those ingredients you have, the tougher it becomes for an option team to exploit you.

I say Oregon gets smoked by Alabama if they play in the national championship...

P.S. Of course the zone read can work in the NFL. It just has to be used in moderation and executed properly.

True, he also has Barry Sanders Jr. to work with. Yet I hope Jerry makes a push for him this off season. I know fans would probably prefer guys with NFL HC experience such as Bill Cowher, but I really like the younger guy in David Shaw.

Id rather have Kelly from ND (look at this mans track record, wins every where he goes) or Summlin.

This is a typical over-board reaction... sure Stanford held Oregon to 14 points, but keep in mind, Oregon's terrible defense held Stanford to just 17 points. If you want John Fox all over again, then you definitely want Shaw... I want change, something new, something conforms to the direction the NFL is going... Give me Kelly.
