    Zook just doesn't know what's good for him...He promotes his wide receivers coach to Offensive coordinator...

    Does anyone have any DOUBT that Zaunbrecher outfoxed Saban in the first half on defense? Those quick snap, break the huddle early, check with me audibles were all Zaunbrecher reading Saban's "D" after the initial read.

    That guy's offense beat the #1 team in the nation, and the #2 defense in the nation...

    What is Radio thinking?

    Seems to me that Zook's always looking for someone to blame.

    Maybe it's just me, but I thought when Zaunbrecher was our OC he was awful! He was almost as bad as Morris Watts was during his first tour of duty with LSU. I thought Zaunbrecher was magnificent with Florida.

    I'm not old enough to harken back to either of those two's first tour of duty with us at the Ole War Skule, but I can tell you that both are very effective, very intelligent, very successful offensive minds.

    The strategem against LSU to take away our mass substitutions, and in that, take away our ability to give multiple looks and send blitzers from different areas was critical.

    Never did the Mighty, Mighty Crocodiles ever come close to breaking a snap and coming to the line of scrimmage with less than 15 seconds on the playclock, allowing less time to rest in between plays, but also allowing Zaunbrecher to read the defense, then call in the check with me from the sideline.

    Leak threw on three step drops, or went out of the shotgun. His mobility was perfect, and you could tell his instructions were to go for your first read, or the "hot route", or tuck it and run. Don't wait around, PERIOD.

    This worked to a charm, and it was the first time that anyone-and the ONLY time-this year exposed the inability of our linebackers to consistently cover the running back out of the backfield.

    Georgia and Oklahoma very nearly tied and/or beat LSU using those same plays, but our pressure and their inability to get the ball out of their quarterbacks hands in a hurry seriously limited them.

    Florida's approach was innovative, it was insightful, it was wonderfully executed, and most importantly, it worked like a CHARM.

    I am totally clueless as to how Zaunbrecher could get demoted. He must have a personal clash with Zook. I do know that the widoeout coach whom Zook promoted was allegedly the "Perimeter Passing Offensive Coordinator" at first last year, I believe, as Zaunbrecher actually had a Co in front of his coordinator title.

    But, like I said earlier, I see absolutely no rhyme or reason to demote the only man in college football who beat the best defense in college football. If Jimbo leaves, lets hire this guy!
