Yep. Maybe both sides will finally realize they are a match made in heaven. This is where he can recruit the players to fit his system. Even the low level skill position players here are good enough to succeed. He'd have to sit a season and then Tulane would need donors willing to pony up . One can dream. :mrgreen:

Like the wishbone & veer in the late seventies & early eighties, the pure-play R/O Spread with a reliance on zone blocking up front has been marginalized. A pro scheme with r/o capabilities when needed, seems to be the trend. Alabama beat LSU last night with a Freshman dual threat QB who went unaccounted for on one play off the edge.

I like CWF. We need a QB and hopefully will get a JC this year. RR was so lucky with Shaun King. I still think he was the best QB he has had for his system.

However, as much as I like CWF, and I do believe we will win, I'd take RR in a heart beat.

RR will be had for pocket change after this season. His ship has sailed.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

RR is in his 5th year, and Arizona is now in "full reverse" for this season. Arizona will have a tough decision for whether to give RR a 6th year and hard to believe his recruiting isn't totally shot for this year.

For 1997 & 1998 RR was ahead on the curve but I am afraid the curve has caught up to RR.

Ahead of the curve, or the master of the curve ?.....with the correct players, any system can win....the field is still 120 yards long, only eleven players are allowed to participate at any one time....That posted, RR ain't gonna be at Tulane anytime soon, he sh*t in his mess kit 5 years ago

Darryl Royal "got ahead of the curve" in the late 60's and won a National Championship @ Texas running something called "the Wishbone." :wave:

Like I said this is the place he can get the players he needs for his system. Too bad we'll likely never get to find out.

What...RR is at a prestigious PEE 5 school in beautiful, allergy free Arizona, close to California and he cannot get a player to fit his system ?!?!?!?

He's not getting the skill guys we have in abundance here. That's my point- we can provide what he needs. He can work around the other issues. He's shown that.

since Louisiana has so many of his type of players, why does he not recruit there more often ? LSU does not run "that system"...so there should be an abundance of potential players for RR to choose from ....one other tidbit, Leach runs basically the same 'system' yet he can get players to Washington State and RR cannot get them to 'Zona ?!?!?....Have U ever been to the Wassu ?... I have, it is beautiful scenery, but not much bigger than Hammond, LA !!!!

golf - I didn't say he can't get them at Arizona. He has won 8,8,10 and 7 before this season. It's not working out there for him this year and a loss like yesterday may send him packing. Like I originally said he might realize this is where he can get what he needs in abundance and win at a high clip based on the low level of opposition.

LSU may not run that system but they signed Lindsey Scott and they sign top flight backs and receivers.

IF RR would wind up here in the future after his first winning season (if there's one ) he would get on his horse and ride out of town.

No he wouldn't and that's the type of thinking that cost us in 98. If he ends up here it's b/c the P5's don't want him anymore. It took a long time for him to get the Arizona offer. He wasn't their first choice.

Pac12 in shambles. Should give Houston an easy "p5" win in 2018. Wonder who they'll be able to get as a replacement this late in the offseason...

Also wonder what the rules are on their players that signed early?
