Normally (the operative word here is “normally”) this time of the year we would be discussing how the new recruiting class would be fitting in to possible playing time next year or valuable needed dept.

I don’t necessarily think we need to go Air Raid. What we need is a strong physical team that is sound fundamentally. KK was not going to bring that to our team.
I don’t know who to bring in that will bring that to the team. But I don’t think we have anybody currently on the staff to do it.
The big problem we have is anybody we bring in will not have room for”their” position coaches. Are we going to fire the ones currently there?

Problem is, any “strong, physical linemen” we have play defense. I think the new coach has for more to work with for a spread. I hope anyone (doubt Helton is smart enough to process this) can see that a certain percentage of plays under center are needed.

Agree about not needing to go Air Raid. Especially because it minimizes the tight end position, where I think we have game changers in Falo and the two incoming tight ends.
