ANOTHER COACHING NOTE. Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease is not just on Florida's radar, but also on Alabama's, as well, since smart coaches who like to run the ball and win and stuff are in short supply everywhere, but most especially in the SEC. Normally we would say "Oh, what a hot commodity," but if Nick Saban and Will Muschamp are both interested in you as an offensive coordinator, we have to be suspicious in principle of your fondness for scoring touchdowns. (He's quite good. This is merely a theoretical note, and a reminder that everyone in the SEC hates offense forever in 2012.)
— THE CURIOUS INDEX, 1/4/2012 - Every Day Should Be Saturday No link, so not sure where Spencer saw that Alabama is interested in Pease, but given the almost certain grim prospect of
Al Mike Groh being promoted to OC hearing a name like Pease just made my morning. Yes, yes, "play a real schedule Boise" and etc., but truth be told Pease would be a perfect fit in Tuscaloosa. For all the talk of Boise being part of the "offensive chic" clique over the last few years, the truth is they don't do anything particularly wild or innovative a la Gus Malzahn. What they do is develop quarterbacks and receivers, scheme and game plan well, and are efficient in the red zone. Honestly, the biggest issue I could see is whether or not he would fit with Saban personality wise. Fingers crossed on this being more than just a rumor.
UPDATE: via Danny Sheridan's twitter:
"am told Brent Pease first choice as Ala OC, then Grogh. sworn to secrecy on former NFL great n the mix who may join staff, big + if he does."
Obviously Pease is the bagman...
