Hire Craig Bohl

Post by YankPoke » Sat Oct 26, 2013 9:09 pm

Tormey should not be let onto the plane home and needs to have his walking papers. DC should be fired at seasons end and we need to send money at Bohl and get him to Laramie.

Unless something CRAZY happens, I agree.
I'm on board.
If you ever need to laugh, just remember there was some idiot who wanted Bohl fired after 2 seasons.

For those of you campaigning for Bohl, what has he done that makes you think it'll end any different than Glenn?

He could also be the next Jim Tressell. Who knows? He has FBS experience can coach and can obviously recruit kids to a barren place with horrible weather.

Also Joe Glenn was always in FCS, Bohl was at least at Nebraska as a DC when they were still good.

There are a lot of similarities between the two....but that does not mean things would be the same as the Glenn era. The man knows how to win big despite geographical disadvantages. I'll take my chances with him as opposed to some assistant from the Pac-12 who will hate Laramie 3 months into his tenure.

He has a great resume. I actually anticipate he will take a higher profile FBS job than Wyoming this year. Reminds me of Tad Boyle in that sense. I felt like we should have fired Schroyer much earlier (like, after the first game he coached, but I digress) and hired Boyle, but we didn't get there in time. If we wanted Bohl, we needed to fire DC last year.

Still, no guarantee that he would succeed here. Glenn and DC both had quality resumes and have been complete failures.

Beat a rebuilding name and that indicates he can recruit d-1 talent? I normally agree with you beav and even drink from the same kool aid chalice but I am not sold on hiring a fcs coach

Recruiting to D-2 powerhouse isn't quite the same as recruiting to D-1 Laramie... We've seen what D-2 talent at this level looks like.... I agree he could go on to be the next Saban but he could just as easily become the next Vic Koennig

I've already implored Mr Bohl to look in this direction on his Twitter feed: @CraigBohl

He barely beat a bad Kansas St team. Trust me, not a "quality" win.
I feel for Snyder. They are way worse off than us.
Play calling: QB rush, QB rush, TE slant, punt.

But really think about it. Bohl runs a run heavy offense. Our offense, with its talent returning would be a complete waste while trying to transition.

We owe it Brett to not switch horses midstream. I say give DC another year with a new d coordinator.

Don't you think we owe it to Brett to try to win?

Changing coordinators isn't likely to work in this situation. It's exactly like Joe Glenn in 2007. The program was sliding down hill and one side of the ball was completely pathetic (it was offense at that time) so they sacrificed the coordinator (Cockhill, who should have been fired years earlier). The problem was that they couldn't get a decent coordinator to come in because Glenn was a lame duck coach and everyone knew it was likely for one year before getting fired again. That's how we ended up with Bob Cole and another crappy season.

DC is done. The only question is whether we will need to endure an awful lame duck season next year or not.

You all realize Bohl has zero experience turning a program around. He's done great things at NDSU, but he took over a winning program.

I think we owe it to Brett to win games and find coaches that don't have defenses that give up 50 points and 500+ yards every time they step onto the field. Besides there are 100 other kids in this program to think about, not just Brett Smith.

No on Bohl, yes on Tormey, yes on DC.

UW's next AD needs to make a splash hire here. No more risk taking (Tiller, Dimel, Koennig, Glenn, Christensen). Do it.
Dear Karma,

I have a list of people you missed...

First of all whoever talked down on beating Kansas State...really?
They BARELY beat them? Who cares? A win is a WIN! Not to mention, K-State is a BCS team and NDSU is FCS.
Saying K-State is worse off than us...really?
3-4 in the Big 12 is better than 4-4 in the MWC if you ask me.

Second of all...if we get Bohl after this season, he will have Brett Smith, and then Jason Thompson to play QB for him. Doesn't matter what system you're in, they can both play QB damn well. Pro-style or spread, whatever. Not to mention Wick and May next season.
He has offensive talent, so he just needs to worry about the O-Line which is good some games, and awful others. Good coaching can probably fix that.
Then...the defense.
Teach them to play freaking defense!
Plus, if he has been at Nebraska, and NDSU he can recruit kids to remote areas, knows how to deal with bad winters and can recruit the small town kid. The kid that wants to come to Laramie and drink a couple beers with a can of copenhagen instead of a bunch of douchey losers that just want to go to the club and chase skanks all night.
