Rich Rod, TEs, and Texas


I have a few questions for Dr. B or anybody else that would like to answer. 

First, I would like to hear the argument for Rich Rodriguez as OC.  I am not as high on him as many others and it has nothing to do with the inappropriate man-crush on Josh Groban (zing).  Rich-Rod comes in and shrinks your OL down to about 250 lbs., has never had a winning season in his first year anywhere, and is basically known for putting together three great years at West Virginia. 

In his first run at Clemson we scored a lot of points but, we also got manhandled and severely blownout by every Big Boy team we played. And, there is the personnel problem (ie. no Woodrow Dantzler here).  Not to mention that throughout history, these geniuses regarded as "offensive innovators" have typically had about a ten year run before everybody catches up with them and their effectiveness wanes. Tick Tock.  So, why Rich Rod now?

Secondly, we keep talking about how Dabo wants to run the spread so, why do we keep recruiting marquee TEs?    What version of the spread would Dabo like to model this team after?  

If it is Texas, then what are the chances of their recently fired OC making an appearance in the upstate?

Also, if Dabo visited Texas in the offseason, and they were reportedly trending away from the spread, what did Dabo expect to learn when he visited them?

These opinions are not necessarily those of the Proprietors of Shakin' The Southland.
