The test will be how well they can recruit. And so far, they look good on that front.

How do you expect the playing time distribution of true freshmen (recruited by Bloomgren and his staff) vs the rest of the team to stack up against previous years with Bailiff? I suppose I'd expect more true freshman playing time due to them being Bloomgren's own recruits? Is that par for the course when a new coach comes in?

Depends on how good they are. If they land some of the people who have showed up on the radar since Bloomgren was announced, I would expect them to be able to contribute next year. I think he will play more people in general than Bailiff did, at least for a couple of years. The more people you play, the faster they get better.

Coach Sloan tweeted this today:

Thank you @CoachBailiffFB for the opportunity to create 8 years of amazing experiences and memories. Good Luck to everyone new and old @RiceFootball #GoOwls

Guessing he has been told to move on. I think that only leaves Steward and Okam as possibilities of a holdover from the old staff.

Hearing that all of the position coaches were told that they would not be retained today.

Some support staff retained, some not.

Probably a good thing. Clean house and start over.

Sad, Coach Okam is a good one. Same with Coach Vinklarek.

They are all good guys.

*Most* were good football coaches.

I would put Okam in that category. I think he has a bright future as DL coach.

Vinklarek also knew what he was doing and was seemingly snakebitten by injuries/DQ's at a position where its tough to play young guys/mix/match.

Kinda surprising because I thought Coach Sloan developed some nice tight ends especially for the NFL.

RE: Bloomgren's coaching staff
My own feeling is that most of the position coaches were pretty good. That's how we developed people for the NFL.

Not as impressed with the coordinators as a group, quite frankly including Mensa when he was here. But I think the real problem was at the top. I don't know that the coordinators position coaches got to coach the way they would have wanted to. Exhibit A to me is how much Mensa's offense changed after he left here.

RE: Bloomgren's coaching staff
I've said it before, I think if I were doing this my approach would be to bring in three coordinators (offense, defense, special teams) that I trusted totally. Then keep a couple off the old staff for continuity, focusing on the two with the best recruiting track records. Then I'd fill out the staff with high school coaches who had the contacts to recruit, recruit, recruit. Ideally, I'd get recent presidents of the Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana HS coaches associations. A quality coach can be a good position coach.

That was pretty much the formula that Nick Saban followed at LSU, and it took him 4 years to win a national championship with it. That made an impression on me (obviously) and ever since it has seemed a smart way to go.
