    So JoVester leaves the SEC

    and suddenly he is back to being a solid playcaller. Granted he had a HC checking him this season- but when he leaves the SEC he goes back to being solid nonetheless. Interesting.

    Doesn't speak well of our players IMO to have coaches successful other places and not here.

    So is it more to do with slower defensive players or just having a head coach to keep him in check or both?

    It?s just a different animal here. We HAVE to stop hiring coaches that need time to warm up to SEC. Look at Sam Pittman and how great he did in his first year... dude was an OL coach last year but he gets the SEC

    It's likely a combination of both but not having to play SEC defenses every week makes life better for a playcaller- no doubt.

    They were 2nd in the conference at 33.7 per game and 3rd in total offense.

    So do you think that SloMo offense needed to be adapted for the SEC similar to what Brady did with LSU offense?

    Do you think Leach could adapt the Air Raid to work better,

    The new AD needs to hire a HC with SEC experience in two years.

    Maybe because they play in the Pac 12, where they finished 4-2

    If Leach was successful in the PAC12, but sucks now because of SEC defenses.....THEN, JoMo is successful now only because he's in the PAC12.

    To be consistent ya know.

    Oregon has better offensive players and PAC 12 defenses are worse. Plus JoMo cant run a disciplined program. He doesn't have to worry about being a head coach now so he's in a different situation now.

    Leach scored 36 per game in conference last year and did not get to miss playing Washington.

    We'll see next year when we're at least bringing gun to a gun fight. Too early to say Leach won't do well here.

    Look, morehead had a talent advantage at PSU and Oregon, and subpar talent while here. Doesn't necessarily say much about the SEC except we can't recruit very well.

    I've tuned into 2 Oregon games. Moorhead has completely stopped the "check with me" crap, they don't get delay of games on the first play, they don't blow assignments on the OL, they play with energy, and they execute fast. NONE of that was present while he was here, and NONE of that has anything to do with the talent of the defense.

    Fact is he couldn't coach the O while here. We were sloppy and didn't know what to do. Again, that fact is independent of playing Pac-12 or SEC talent; We sucked in vacuum regardless of opponent. He can focus entirely on the O as OC and the results show.

    Having players that are simply better than the defenders, having the ability to spend 100% of your effort teaching the O, and having a real HC create a good culture = his O works. I'm sure if he was Bama's OC they'd score a ton- it's not an "SEC is different so those pansy O's will never work here" problem

    Not sure of the point of this thread. Joe set the lax expectations on the players as a head coach, but at Penn State and Oregon he is just an assistant melding into another head coach's culture. There's no reason to think that the results will be the same when Joe's not in the same position.

    The point of the thread is to say that the SEC is magically different and nothing C34 doesn't like will work here because of that.

    JoMo as OC with Mcsorely, Barkley, Hamilton, Gesicky vs teams that recruit worse than PSU = success.

    JoMo as HC with Fitz, Williams/Hill, and no other playmakers vs teams that recruit better than us = failure

    JoMo as HC at the #6 best recruiting team in the Pac = success.

    Obviously, he needs a talent advantage and tha ability to focus 100% of his efforts on the O. But C34 would have you believe the only different was SEC speed on D
