    Actually I thought that was 2007 with Mullen as OC. Daz didn't take over until 2009 after Mullen left.

    It was Mullen bc Harvin and Tebow were on the spinner. There was a flowchart for Daz with his three plays. Mullen was just as bad as Daz but Mullen had Percy. Remember in 2006 when we had Percy lining up at wildcat QB some bc nothing else was working.

    Some of you guys habe terrible memories. Many pollsters thought we should get excluded frim the NCG bc our ofdense was so terrible as to preclude us from having a chance against any top team. You remember only Creyer/Mullen FINALLY letting Leak pass downfield against OSU and the blowout that ensued, and forget what happened all season.

    You're right. It's like all of those crappy years flowed together. And now it is exacerbated by the fact that we still have no offense in the 3rd year of the horse **** whisperer.

    Seems like Urbs is good for about 4 years and then either his message grows stale to the players or everyone he plays catches up to his game plan.... Or, perhaps he gets mentally worn out... Not sure, but he does not have lasting power anywhere...

    Maybe, his other dream job opens up. ND will be looking for a new Head Honcho soon.

    seems about par for the course.. He could win there for about a 4-5 year stretch and retire..

    Maybe because we WON the friggin National Championship?

    Those titles can't be taken away, no matter how much you want them to be.

    .... Prior to that game, didn't Leak win SEC MVP for that SEC season?

    Leak was wonderful to see. We had their heads spinning by 3rd series!

    It was feast or famine with Percy, but he feasted often. Like playing Russian roulette with 50%.

    I think the ball bands affected your comprehension. The point is that I wish he HAD utilized the offensive talent and thrown the ball down field all those other games too! He would have won more games for us (and would in Crackumbus too).

    BTW, we did throw the ball downfield some in 2007 before Tebow got hurt and Creyer's esophageal spasms forced us back in the ND option offense.

    No, I mean the championships we should have won in 2009 and 2010, when, instead, we tried to bash the middle with Jeff Demps and tried to run the option with John Brantley.
