SMU’s offense was essentially NOTHING like ours this season. It was an extremely successful passing and overall offense, ranking in the top 30 in the nation by most metrics in both. This is obviously with less talent than he will likely have at UW. Their run efficiency this year was bottom half of FBS.
With that said, he has really been tutored by two of the best possible running and passing game coaches and one would think he has the knowledge to run an offense that fits the talent we have on campus.
I would absolutely love this hire.
It’s understandable why the run game isn’t as effective. Skill Positions are plentiful but big talented bodies on the lines is what separates the elite teams. SMU is able to scheme a solid offense but when it comes to linemen they’re going to have to accept what’s left after Texas Power 5 schools eat first
