Thursday--January 19th, 2012

A MAC championship and back-to-back 11 win seasons provides a lot of opportunity for NIU coaches.


A new daughter has Victor on Cruz control.

In his spare time, he's wowing the fans.

Big has Victor's portion of the Giants NFC Championship game press conference.


Meanwhile, James Ihedigbo is getting ready for the Ravens.


Off topic, but interesting for football fans: the Pats RB BenJarvis Green-Ellis has never fumbled during his pro career.


No  UMass recruiting  news today, but does Coach Molnar have a helicopter?


The NCAA is debating scholarship cuts for both FBS and FCS football.

Looks like we hired our offensive coordinator, the prior offensive coordinator for the university of Hawaii. Very strange hire. This coach is going to install an offense that has no chance in New England weather. Hawaii was 113th in the country in rushing last year.

I'll second that! This guy sounds like a great get! Hawaii was one of the best passing teams in the nation. It sure wasn't the "O" that
got the HC fired! Plus the OL coach Hudson has a history of producing grind it out lines for talented backs!

As QB Coach and OC, Rolo had the Warriors in the Top 20 (FBS not FCS) in passing, and total offense. All with pretty much the same caliber of athletes that make up the UMass team.

Rolo isn't just a QB and passing guru, he's coached different Offensive sets before. If he gets the blessings of the Head Coach, I'd expect Rolo to really mix it up and win some big games for UMass.

Your reasoning, Anon. 1 is off. One can't run a run and shoot variation of the West Coast Offense because of the cold? Would you kindly enlighten me?

Details and bios coming tomorrow morning.

From the Hawaii website

"Rolovich, who took over play-calling duties in 2009 while serving as quarterbacks coach, directed an offense which led the NCAA in passing at 394.3 yards per game and ranked in the Top 10 in scoring total offense (500.6) and scoring (39.6).

In addition, Rolovich mentored quarterback Bryant Moniz, who led the country in passing, total offense, and touchdowns. Last season, UH became just the second team in NCAA history to feature a 5,000-yard passer, 1,000-yard rusher, and two 1,000-yard receivers.

"No chance in New England weather"....right. The Pats can't throw the ball at all up here. That's why they rely on defense and a bruising running game. Stick with the Uconn-vict blogs. What a genius.
