  • Tim Plough Named New UC Davis Head Football Coach
    I'm nowhere close to the most senior Aggie on this board, but I've been watching since the 90's. I think the Aggies have actually had a fairly strong track record of running the ball over the last 10 years with guys like Gabe Manzanares, Manu Luuga, Joshua Kelley, Ulonzo Gilliam, and Lan Larison. I'm not dumping on having a good run game. It's an important aspect of football, but in today's football you have to be able to throw the ball somewhat effectively especially if you find yourself down in a game. We were lucky to have Larison this season because even with a good, but not star, level RB we likely would have had a losing season.

    I certainly hope that the pass game will improve under Plough considering it's his specialty. It was kind of a rough look when our most effective offense was... Well... Just Larison whether it was wildcat or handoff.

    I'm excited to see the potential changes for the offense. Plough has a couple more years of experience under his belt since he was our OC and it'll be interesting to see his evaluations of the current roster and where we might need to make some changes.

    I think there's too many variables to really make a determination at this point if the offense will be more or less successful than this last season. That being said, it would be nice to break the 30 point mark in more than 4 games.

    I believe it was Plough behind the high tempo no huddle offense we had when Jake Maier was slinging the ball. It wouldn't surprise me if Plough hits the portal and JUCO ranks to shape the team in his vision because I'm not sure we currently have the players to run his offense. We've become a grind it out running team and that's not at all how I remember Plough.

    It'll be interesting to see how much of the coaching staff will be retained vs Plough bringing in some of his own guys. I figure there won't be much turnover initially especially with Hawk sticking around in some capacity.

    Maybe Plough will bring back some of that no huddle that's been absent for several years at this point

    Hope Coach Plough is ready to hit the ground running! No time to waste! GO AGS!

  • 2024 Football Recruiting
    First signing period starts on the 20th

    Hope that we hear about a hiring so the coaches can hit the recruiting trail hard here over the next couple of weeks. Got to make sure that we don't lose any of the commits we have so far as well, which from what I have seen none have de-committed so far. Let's not give them the chance though.

    I want due diligence done in terms of hiring the next coach, but now that the December signing date has become the main signing date we need to get it done ASAP. I would hope that Rocko has been on top of this and that we get someone in place in the next day or so.
  • Transfer Portal 2024
    Well I'm hoping that we get a new HC in ASAP to help save the recruiting class we have put together and to start looking through the portal and JUCO guys to fill things out. We gotta get the right guy, but we gotta get it done quickly.

    There are certainly more aspects to coaching than just wins and losses, but I mean... His record was 12-33 as our HC. In most any profession if you underperform for long enough in some of your duties you're gonna lose your job.

    Gould seemed like a nice guy, but these guys all know that getting results is part of the job.

    I think Dan probably had the class to let the team know his decision to resign before this news dropped today so players entering the portal were probably already in the works. A HC leaving is a big deal to these kids, especially if it's the one to recruit them. I think we are going to see more transfer announcements before this all plays out... not that there aren't transfers every year, but I think the rate will be higher than normal.

  • Lan Larison named Big Sky offensive player of the year
    I think it benefits the Aggies that Hawkins isn't leaving for another coaching job and in fact is staying on as some sort of advisory role. Hopefully that will keep what we have as a recruiting class on board and limit portal losses.

    I mean, I'm sure he's no longer going to be paid HC salary, but I'm guessing he'll be paid something.
