    I know a lot of our RB issues came from the OL issues but if we don't have a solid rushing attack this year then Chris Foster has to go.

    Try 110% of them. If the run blocking is dismal it doesn't matter who is coaching the RBs.

    Chris Foster is at best the third most important guy influencing how good our running plays are behind Bryan Cook and Bob Bodine.

    Hey, Tyson! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    Our OL coach last year had coached for teams that averaged 2.7 ypc under his instruction before 2016. I think we actually raised his average as a coach.

    It was BAD.

    On the other hand, Foster's prior D-I experience involved teaching RBs to run stretch plays.

    From a technique perspective, I'd guess that was significantly different from the downhill,
    North-South style our RBs were taught under the previous staff.

    I won't discount the idea that possibly we had difficulties adjusting the new techniques/reads.

    I guess if he were texting our RBs moms I would be concerned. But teaching a RB how to do something they have been doing since the 3rd grade I think he can handle that.

    Our OL last year was fundamentally probably one of the worst O lines I've ever seen in my life...and that's not an indictment on the players.
