"We don't care about anything but winning. No one cares about ethical standards thats for losers..."
I watched their bowl game and they kept mentioning how Long didnt like to pass and that he would run the ball every down if he could. Sounds like another Canada type situation here where the HC dictated play calling.
One interesting sidenote to Ludwig, he was very hard after Bart Houston and almost got him to come to SDSU.
He has coached some good QB's, and he has a long track record as an OC. Just hope he's willing to get creative and use our weapons.
Count me as another who one the surface views this with a meh. Time will tell though.
Boo. He's been a sinking ship for years. Crap hire. People won't look past the names on his resume.

I like how on wiki they descibed his Oregon years as diappointing. I would think the Oregon people wouldn't use that same word.

So now the Flordia connection is really really vital in the new WR coach.
Can someone help me with this. Beside Strickland so far for sure is coaching at UW, but the other coaches they named, has all of them been on the west coast?

Hammock is a East Coast Guy with ties in Jersey and PA and Strickland is a Wisconsin and Minnesota Guy. Thats about it for anything east of the Mississippi on the staff so war.

He also developed Alex Smith. So for recruiting QB purposes, he can tell kids that he's been a major factor in developing two #1 draft pick QBs in the NFL....and both were at programs under the level of UW.
Why concern yourself with the OC's recruiting connections. He's going to recruit QBs nationally. That's probably it. Doesn't matter where he's from.
And to those judging him based on his track record, don't forget he was the OC for Utah's Sugar Bowl team that put up 31 on Alabama when the Tide was a 10 pt favorite. And the DC on that team was Andersen so he knows him well. You've gotta admit he's at least as good a hire as Canada was. Give him a chance.
What were Hammock's connections out East before he got here. That's working out OK, right? A good recruiter can recruit anywhere. Florida might be a special case where relationships will need to be built in greater depth but I'm not concerned about most of our traditional territory and now we have added credibility in other areas.
Hammock was born in NJ. That's a pretty strong connection. %70 of this staff was born in UT
If he's a good recruiter he helps out for more than just the QB, Canada and Chryst weren't exactly great and didn't like it so they focused in on one area. I hope he is a good recruiter as an OC that can be very helpful
Gives you an idea of his personality and how he speaks.
Strickland covers WI, MN, and GA. Hammock covers some areas of PA and NJ. Besides that we lose Ohio, IL, and Florida so far. The new coaches recruiting connections range from Houston to Northern California.
I will leave the good recruiter can recruit anywhere comment a chance. The comment about Fl being a special case got my attention. I hope someone on the new staff has that, cause UW gave up theirs. I agree with you 100% thats its special , its just makes no sense to me not to have one.
