Thanks, and thats what I was afraid of.
No matter who the OC was going to be....there wasn't going to be a significant impact on recruiting. OC's typically recruit nationally for QB's only.
If you look at his resume its pretty attractive. He has coached several good offenses in his career and actually has had better success than Chryst ever has sending QBs to the NFL. He has been O-Coord/QB Coach of a NFL #1 Draft Pick David Carr, and has sent several other QBs to the NFL, including one last year Ryan Lindley who is a rookie with the Cardinals. He also has a good history of having balance and last year his offense amassed over 5,500 yds. Also, since he became an O-Coord in 1998, he has only had 2 losing seasons in his career.
Overall, I'm happy. For an outsider its a pretty good hire. The guy has coached at some pretty big programs (Oregon, Utah, Cal) and has had solid success. From a resume standpoint he blows out Canada's resume out of the water.

Let's be clear about something... Bama didn't show up for the game bc they didn't care after missing out othe NC game. Motivation plays a big role in bowl games.
As for the hire... Count me as very underwhelmed. I can only hope I'm wrong.
Bullsh*t. Same ridiculous excuse was made for Auburn when the Badgers waxed them. It would take a team without pride to not show up.
The last time he and GA were together they went 13-0...That is a fact. the rest of the hand wringing is without merit.
The Bigeddysprings is not a horse.
Well he moved away before high school because he played HS football in Indiana. Clement isn't coming here because Hammock once played peewee football in New Jersey.
All these comments are interesting. GA has been the HC for 9 days and his staff is not yet complete, The staff has not yet signed a recruiting class and for some it sounds like we should just get rid of them all and start over.
Do you react as negatively in all aspects of your life. Excuse me nothing personal but I will remain as far away as possible.
Badger 99, I don't know if you can call Oregon a success.
I wouldn't say some people are negative this much in life. Maybe its me, but I remember the guys BB hired last year, and maybe Canada didn't get the best reaction, but the others, people were pretty pumped. I remember getting Buh and thinking this guy is going to wonders out west in Cal. Now it seems everyone without UW ties is from out west and instead of Cal its Utah. To me thats a fair question.
Ok fine you can debate that. The guy has had some descent success though. If you remove your troll glasses though and just look at his resume, as if you were an employer, its pretty solid. Multiple coaching stops at big programs, several great years offensively, and has coached several NFL QBs, more than Chryst has ever coached.
At the least, resume wise Ludwig blows Canada out of the water. Even currently, to date Canada has had one great game. Most of the other games he was a wanted man.
I'm interested to see what he does with 9 starters on O back.
So I am a troll if I disagree with you, Nice. Also Canada had only 1 game that he did well, really. You really think he had just 1 game. You can say Ludwig had coaching stops at big schools, most employers would wonder why its been for 2 years that he stayed at those schools. Look if you think its a good hire, fine its your opinion, but just because someone has a different one doesn't make him a troll.
Believe what you want, but it happens every bowl season.
That is the only way Minny was in the game last night.
LOL! TT gave up 34 to Kansas at home and 50+ in each of its last 2 games. That game was right in character for them.
This isn't the NFL where they play for money and it's a toss up whether they show up and play or not. This is college where they play to win and for the love of the game NOT money.
Say what you want about TT, Minnesota is awful. Minny wasn't staying in the game because they were playing so well.
Can we get back on topic? lol.
