Sounds like Bo is putting together his staff pretty quick. Reports are that Shawn Watson will be back as OC.
Now...I know how all you CU fans feel about Watson. Even NU fans weren't always crazy about him. I think there is a good case for keeping him, at least during this transitional season:
1) The players all love him and it would be good for them to have some comfort level with the new staff. Osborne also seems to like him, and even took him out on the recruiting trail with him.
2) Watson was up in the booth most the season while Cally called plays. When it became obvious change was needed, Watson came down to the sideline and started taking over some of the play calling. In those last 3 games we averaged well over 50 points, a couple of those games against pretty solid defenses. Most people close to the team say Watson was a big reason why.
3) Our offense finished 11th in the nation. Yeah, we struggled in some of our bigger games (only 6 points vs Mizzou), but I would guess we'll see some adjustments while keeping what was starting to work. No reason to start from scratch when we have a good shot to have a very solid offense. Pelini will have enough work turning our sorry D around. Some stability on O will help a lot.
Anyway, Watson deserves a shot to lead the offense. Hopefully we can utilize the mobility of Ganz and get a more consistent running game.
