We will see. In the meantime, I wish both the best of luck and thank them for their time here. They gave 100% of their heart and effort for this program to succeed.

    From The Advocate:

    "I've had a great, great four years," Haack said. "There's not one thing I would change about my experience. I met a lot of great people, met a lot of great fans, great friends, memories that I'll have for a lifetime. There's nothing about that that I would change.
    "This could possibly be my last year of football in my life. I really want to take it to heart and succeed for my last year."
    Haack made the decision shortly after meeting with Cajuns offensive coordinator Jay Johnson last week. In that meeting, Johnson laid out the Cajuns' plan for the 2016 season and Haack said "it just didn't look promising."
    Minnesota doesn't use a traditional drop back passer. They run primarily out of the pistol and run some power option.

    You guys have the magic touch around here.

    What happened to the old Rebel that was wrong most of the time... but at least tried? This is weak and lazy stuff, Rebel. "Ragin Pagin spends... " and "You guys... " directed at no one in particular? Weak and lazy.

    Jay got promoted to the Big 10 close to home. Haack just doesn't fit Hud's mold. I seriously doubt Haack wants to go or would be needed for one year at Minnesota. Haack is smart enough, especially after this year, to see he didn't fit Hud's mold... and will not compete well against JD in any offensive adjustment Hud is going to make. Hud wants a QB that can tuck it and take it the distance. Hud isn't going to sacrifice that QB characteristic even for the next Tom Brady... much less Haack.

    Bingo. The biggest problem with Haack leaving is it opens the door for Hud to keep Nixon in the conversation at QB. I'm really hoping that we see Nixon at RB next year.

    Unless Hud fills the big back spot, he needs to convince Nixon to move to (and work out as) a power back. He could always be a QB backup if needed. And he could certainly be our wildcat RB/QB. But I'd stick to JD, Ray and Weaver as the QBs. I'd prefer Hud not mess around, pick a #1 quickly, and work his ___ off with the premium receiving group. Hopefully, the new OC will know how to help out our seriously unspectacular passing attack... by demanding the right personnel in the right positions... select and teach smarter routes/separation skills... and demand the right plays be called in the right downs/distances. That would be a refreshing improvement over last year.

    He's a coach on an NFL team not a DC. I'm not a guy saying Willis did a poor job, like what he did.

    Any NFL position can be considered a promotion. But it was as a position coach. May or may not be for his DC skills.

    As usual Rebel your views are over the top wrong.

    Any word on even names of a potential offensive coordinator?

    There is no problem with Haack's decision. Davis will be given the keys to the bus.

    Sadly there is not a FBS ready quarterback.

    I agree. I've been high on Davis and think he's our guy. My point is that we don't have a backup with any experience whatsoever now that Haack has left thus possibly keeping Jalen at the QB position.

    Amazing that McNeese made just a few adjustments to accommodate their transfer QB from K state. They went 11-0 in the reg season. Why t/f couldnt we make a few adjustments to accommodate Haack??? Hard headedness or just not intelligent enough to adjust on the fly??

    Yep. I think Nixon remains an option at QB, in a pinch, even if he's shifted to RB. I think you and Jay are right in that JD will be developed as the #1 with a contest to see who will be #2. It's the nature of being a mid major that our biggest tests are early. I'd like Hud to focus on a program that adds a lot of risk into the offense in order to be competitive with the better opponents. Being that we're developing green QBs (and supposedly some changes to the offense) I suspect Hud will work on simplification for the purpose of flawless execution. That doesn't bode well for competing against the best we face... unfortunately.

    I'm no longer giving Hud the mulligan. Davis better come out polished, as we could have given him many meaningful quarters of meaningful play. We chose to come into 2016 with a guy having almost no quarters of play.

    We have almost no idea if he's an FBS quarterback. He's an FBS athlete whose a slightly better passer than Nixon at this point. I expect a lot of sacks. He's not learned it's ok to toss it away. He might learn, but those guys often think their legs can save the day.

    There is absolutely no reason to keep Nixon at QB and steal reps from Chris Weaver.

    We'll prepare for some disappointment. He's not going to be a polished quarterback in his 4th game (2nd with more than 1 drive). That's just nonsense. Could Hud have gotten him more experience this year? Absolutely, but he did not. So the fact remains that he will still have some learning to do. That being said, most who have watched him realize his potential and I think we can win with him next year even though he'll be learning as he go's.

    I imagine Davis will get a world of experience against the Boise defense in his first career start. That'll be a very tough assignment for the guy. I hope he makes it through that first game without getting banged up.
