Why the wait on the new OC and other links
HD tackled BC's delay in naming a successor to Tranq. She concludes that Spaz is naming an outsider and not promoting a current staffer. She says it is just a hunch. I am sticking with my initial report that our new OC will be Ryan Day. I've seen all the speculation, but my tipsters remain firm. But HD did raise a good question: "why hasn't BC already made the announcement?" I actually think the explanation is simple: there is no benefit to naming Day now. Currently they can tell recruits "we are still looking for the right fit, but we are likely to promote from within and keep the same offense. Only it will be more dynamic and exciting with you on board..." If they say Ryan Day is the new man in charge you open a door for other schools to recruit against you. They can question Day's experience, what sort of offense he will run, staff continuity, etc. Who knows? For a conservative school that doesn't get a lot of attention our staffing always provides more drama than you would expect. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe Spaz will bring in an outsider. It wouldn't be the first or last time I got bad info. But whoever it is, I just hope things get better on offense.
BC 2012 target Jason Sylva had a good visit to Rutgers.
BC commit Paul Gaughan dropped out of the prestigious Big33 game. No explanation was given. Let's hope it is not injury.
There is speculation Jags could be Matt Ryan's new QB coach in Atlanta. I don't see it happening for a variety of reasons. But I could see Steve Logan in the role.
