What about Chris Petersen?

I see all this talk about grabbing Chip Kelly if Rivera gets canned, but what about Chris Petersen, HC of Boise State? He is an offensive minded coach like Kelly, but has also shown to have a pretty good defense. Also, Boise State has produced some pretty solid pro players in the last couple drafts. Compared to how many Boise State players enter the draft, I believe it's a pretty high success rate. So, what do you think about Chris Petersen? Should he get a look at least if Rivera does get fired?

A look at yes. Being really considered as head coach. Don't think so.

Yes. I posted in the Chip Kelly thread that he is the only college coach I would want to take a deep look at.

He maximizes talent better than anyone in CFB

He usually has really good defenses that play smart and aggressive.

He runs a somewhat pro style offense.

He has had success with many different QBs and QB styles.

His son's health issues makes him hard to get out of Boise though.

I'd take him way before Chip Kelly, but still don't want him.

At BSU Chris Petersen has to get up and really game plan for 2 games all year. In the NFL its every week. You can't keep pulling rabbits out of the hat every week.

I always think this is bullpoo. First of all the WAC was always a little bit underrated.

But I look at it this way. In 2009 when Chip Kelly had all offseason to game plan for Boise and Boise had all offseason to gameplan for the great Chip Kelly. Oregon didn't even get a first down until the 3rd quarter and only scored 8 points as Boise dominated them. Oregon won the Pac-10 that year I believe. Then when TCU' Patterson and Boise both had a month before the bowl game to prepare that same year. TCU could only manage 10 points and lost.

in 2010, Frank Beamer had a whole offseason to prepare for Boise, Boise still beat them. VT won the ACC that year Same year Boise had a month to prepare for an explosive Utah offense before the bowl game. Utah managed only 3 points.

in 2011 Mark Richt had a full offseason to prepare for Boise and vice versa, Georgia didn't even belong on the same field as Boise as Boise blew them out. BTW Georgia won the SEC east that year. The ASU had a month to prepare before the bowl game and vice versa Boise blew them out.

My point is that these great coaches and teams that won their BCS conferences (or played in title games) that year had just as much tim to prepare for Boise as Boise did, Boise out coached all of them.

Not to mention Bob Stoops having a month to prepare for Boise and getting beat also in the best Fiesta Bowl (i think) ever played.

All with inferior talent.

I don't trust any of these college coaches. They play what, 2-3 real games a year? At some point maybe you just have to pick one and go on blind faith. But the probability of success for any one of these guys is very low.

For next season I want to stand pat, I believe patience is prudent in our case.

As a big OU fan is have to say no to Stoops, he's the Andy Reid of the NCAA.
