    Gary Andersen

    Seriously. How do we get the decision makers to consider him? Obviously I've been fairly repetitive in bringing up his name on all the other threads, but this dude needs to get a phone call. There's absolutely no question about it.

    Of all the "not yet proven" candidates, he is the only one to take a program and significantly improve it on both sides of the ball. Utah State was utter dog $#@! when he took over and he left it in amazing shape. I'm going to use my data from adjustedstats.com because it's easier and obviously the best. Offense and defense rankings are adjusted yards per play.

    2008 was the year before Gary Andersen took over at Utah State. While he was serving as the defensive coordinator at Utah, Utah State went 3-9, had the #85 offense in the country and the #82 defense in the country. Their team power rating was #102 (meaning they would have been favored to lose against 101 teams using a standard power rating with no other information). So using that information, here are the annual rankings with the year before he got there and the current year since he left:

    2008: 3-9, #85, #82, #102
    2009: 3-8, #74, #109, #94
    2010: 3-8, #107, #85, #95
    2011: 7-6, #37, #47, #78
    2012: 11-2, #23 #10, #27
    2013: 4-4, #67, #14, #39

    Let's see about Wisconsin in his first year there:

    2012: 8-6, #25, #14, #18
    2013: 5-2, #8, #5, #8

    This guy can flat out $#@!ing coach. He admittedly $#@!ed up the end of the Arizona State game but at the same time I thought they got hosed. He handled it pretty well after the fact and it's obviously just my opinion but I doubt he $#@!s a situation like that up again. It would be perfect for this guy to get the learning process in somewhere else and bring his honed ass kicking ways to Texas. I'm unsure whether to hope he improbably loses on the road at Iowa or elsewhere before he gets too well known nationally.

    Anyway, somebody kidnap some BMDs and talk some sense into them.

    Um, be Red McCombs or Joe Jamail? Donate a couple million to UT and maybe they will care what you/we think

    I've loved him as a potential coach for Texas since Scipio brought him to attention last year. Just figure it's not too realistic now for him to leave Wisky after only one year.

    Dude is a bad ass.

    Despite all the alleged "rumors," I seriously doubt anyone has a realisitic clue of who the school is going to target when Mack steps down. He could very well be on the shortlist of names. And I completely agree - he can flat out coach. Not sure what kind of recruiter he is, but with the talent pool in Texas, I imagine he could put together a pretty salty squad regardless of star rankings.

    I'm not saying he isn't a good coach, but I think we have to look at his competition. Sure, his team wasn't the best either and perhaps there is some equality there given the circumstances.

    1-3 vs BYU
    Lost to Wisconsin, Auburn, Oklahoma, Aggy and while those were all very close losses, his best win was arguably Utah in 2012.
    The wins in his best season? Southern Utah, Utah, Colorado St., UNLV, San Jose State, New Mexico St., UTSA, Texas St., LA Tech, Idaho, and Toledo.

    Even taking away the situation at ASU, I don't think he is very good in game making adjustments. I do think he is a top recruiter and preparer.

    I'm playing a little devil's advocate here, but I figured the thread warranted that.

    utah - bcsaq school - allegedly better/more resources than usu
    sjsu - 11 wins, #6 passing, top 30 in every major stat other than rushing off
    latech - 9 wins, arguably the best offense in the nation
    toledo - 9 wins

    you play who they put in front of you, and he won 11 of 13 games w/ one loss to a rival and one loss on the road at wisky. that's pretty $#@!ing good.

    Anyone who follows the Gamboool CFB threads knows of my feelings towards Gary Andersen. Outside of Saban he's the best Xs and Os guy out there; no question in mind.

    But to further illustrate the point of how good he is, irrespective of the school he's at, is that over the last 3 years as a head coach HE'S TWENTY-SEVEN AND FOUR AGAINST THE SPREAD. That's an insane number and tells me he game plans for each opponent specifically and has flawless preparation leading up to the games.

    What he's done at Wisky in year one is nothing short of amazing, and FWIW I have had them in my top 10 each of the past 2 weeks.

    Get this man to the Forty Acres stat.

    You shouldn't decide to play devil's advocate if you're going to be sensitive about it.

    And no, you didn't say as much in your preface. "Sure, his team wasn't the best either and perhaps there is some equality there given the circumstances." does not come close to accurately portraying the relevance of coaching Utah State. You throw up a 1-3 mark against BYU as though that's underachieving. Two of the losses were by three in Provo so it's probably worth noting that Utah State is 0-17 at BYU since 1979. The two losses by under Andersen were the closest of the 17. Gary Andersen was 1-3 against BYU and outscored by 2.25 points per game. Since 1979 all other Utah State coaches are 2-23 against BYU and have been outscored by 21 points per game. The win over Utah ended a 12 game losing streak in that series.

    In 2012 under Andersen, Utah State defeated four teams that finished with winning records.

    Utah State won a total of four games against teams that finished with winning records from 1996-2008.

    In one year they did it as many times as they had done it in the 13 years before he got there.

    Anderson is a solid candidate, but ultimately I don't see it happening with the line of big name coaches that would take the job in a heart beat. A new AD is not likely to go for a less proven candidate as his first big football hire. Especially if that new AD is Luck and his old hire was Dana Holgerson. Plus, not to play the D-Bag, but there is no way on God's green earth that TX fans would tolerate this slow of a build process. I don't care how little talent was on the roster when he took over. Compare this with Urban Meyer at Bowling Green and it is far less impressive.

    Actually, it's very similar. Meyer didn't improve Bowling Green's defense, though.

    Not being sensitive, but your first post did nothing like your 2nd did. It was flippant so $#@! that. And in my mind it is the same thing, but if I have to literally spell it out for you then "He was coaching at Utah State." There.

    Look, I have NEVER watched a Utah State game, so I can't with certainty say anything. All we are talking about here are stats and records. I never disagreed with your stats. But I did want to give some added context.

    That Utah team ended 5-7 on the year. The year Utah State beat BYU was in their worst year at 7-6.
    In the 2012 year, sure they beat 4 teams with winning records, but they also had wins over 2 teams that only won 1 game (Idaho and New Mexico State), and 4 teams with 5 wins or less (Southern Utah 5, CSU 4, Texas St. 4, UNLV 2). I take back the Utah win as the best, because I think the LA Tech game was there best win.

    The only time I have watched Andersen was against ASU. Forget what happened at the end of the game. ASU made so many stupid and costly errors that it should never have even come down to a FG. Sure I'm biased here. So take that for what it's worth which is nothing.

    you play who they put in front of you, and he won 11 of 13 games w/ one loss to a rival and one loss on the road at wisky. that's pretty $#@!ing good.
    And the two losses, both on the road were by 2 and 3 points.

    They were five points away from being undefeated. They lost to the Big 10 champion (I know, whatever, but they won) on the road by 2 points. And this is Utah State. THIS IS NOT A NEGATIVE, it is a positive indicator of what a great job Andersen does at preparing his teams for opponents.

    It's like people don't understand what adjusted stats mean. You see it with Baylor, and here with Utah State and the yaaahhhh but they didn't play anybody! There are metrics that can compare how teams played and evaluate that CONSIDERING THE LEVEL OF SKILL OF THE OPPONENT. Those stats had Utah State as the 27th best team in the nation in 2012, and if you can't see what an accomplishment that is at Utah State, then LOLU.

    I'm fine with Stoops, but agree with Constant, were he to be replaced, I would LOVE to see Andersen, and hope the decisionmakers at UT have the same mehhhh whatever attitude about hiring him and pull some Jon Gruden out of their $#@!s.

    I would prefer him over some of the bigger names out there. It would be a guy that has worked his way up to the best job in the country.

    I'm still not convinced that a former placekicker with zero coaching experience is what the Horns need.

    There's a poster on this board, the512, who's been outside of Bellmont for about 2 years now telling anyone and everyone who will listen that Andersen should be the next Texas HC. He even yells it as some people.

    He seems like he's a great coach, but I'd like to see a bit more sustained success somewhere before we'd hire him.

    wrt to the comment about 512..

    Not far from the truth. Or at least telling everyone that is smart enough to listen to at least bet a paycheck on his teams to cover the spread every week. haha

    and I agree..

    This is the shortsighted view that gets us in trouble. The guy has been doing a great job for half a decade, enough time to have his own players. Then he moved toa BCS conference and hasn't skipped a beat.

    How long is your list of candidates that have had "sustained success" if he isn't on it?

    I would probably put him at #3 after Saban and Briles. He may have a higher upside than Briles but there's more risk. After that it becomes difficult to argue against Andersen.

    Andersen did beat Bama as DC for Utah. And he is a very impressive defensive coach. I know Huck has already laid out great stuff but consider this...

    In 2005 (first year as DC at Utah) the team gave up 374 yards/game 224 passing and 150 rushing 24.1 pa/g
    2006 - 322, 215 passing 106 rushing 19.8 pa/g
    2007 - 329, 184 passing 144 rushing 16.8 pa/g
    2008 - 289, 190 passing 99 rushing 17.2 pa/g

    Well first you're going to have to get Tom Hicks out of the picture cause he wants to spend a gazillion dollars on Saban. Spending huge amounts of money to sign yesterday's stud amid much fanfare right before the whole thing goes into the ditch - it's what he does. Seriously.

    This thread has provided me with better context to understand Huck's table pounding. I have moved from the "he'd be okay camp" to"he'd be great". Let's steal him from the cheeseheads.

    I would add that Wisky mounted a spirited comeback at Ohio State this year--yeah his two-minute offense wasn't good, but they fought all the way to the end and had all the Bucknuts pretty nervous.

    He gets another shot at BYU in a couple weeks, by the way. I am seriously intrigued by that game.

    Interesting stuff. How old is he? Looks like he could recruit Texas talent and hopefully land out of state talent as necessary. My concern about age is that guys like Saban may want to hang it up after a few years. I have been in favor of a young, energetic, innovative coach that is more of a real coach and can make the fast but correct in game decisions. It appear from his past stays, he actually fixes the dumpster fires he inherits, and doesn't make idle promises to "work on that, or to "get it fixed" without substantially improved results from year to year. So, I'm in, give him an interview and if he's a good fit bring him on.

    While I agree with this, I gotta think that ship has sailed. Unless the 40 acres is his wet dream, I can't see him jumping ship after 1 or 2 years.

    This offseason? Yeah, I think he might. I imagine if you pour your life into something you might want to stick around to see some of the results of what you implemented. He doesn't strike me as the petrino or Todd graham type.

    He also knows you don't get a whole lot of chances at a job like a Texas.

    You think any reasonable Wisconsin fan could hold that against him? We aren't talking about moving from Pitt to Arizona state. Or Atlanta to Arkansas.

    But who knows, maybe this is a part of our inflated view of what Texas is.

    Wisconsin has improved markedly with each passing week. As an earlier poster said, Andersen made a mess of the Arizona State's game ending. But he handled that loss like a champ and the team never sulked or missed a beat. On buckyville and a few other Wisconsin message boards, word is that people with close ties to the program are thrilled with the guy and like him 5x more than BB. He's also managed to get a bunch of top recruits into Camp Randall. Whether or not they commit remains to be seen though.

    Yeah, it would take a powerhouse like Arkansas to steal a coach away from Wisconsin.

    I agree with this. I think it all depends on the first two saying no, and Alvarez. Alvarez is very influential, even aside from being on the playoff committee. He can probably backfill with Chryst, Diaco, or some other up and comer, so hopefully would give his blessing. I can't imagine a new AD would want a public spat with Alvarez.

    A lot of us love Andersen, but i'm afraid the longhorn empire has gotten far too large. That combined with the dinosaurs making the decisions makes it virtually impossible to believe we'll get anything other than a PERCEIVED "sure thing". In their minds they cannot take a risk and fail. The empire must be maintained and perceived threats such as aggy and baylor must be thwarted. So unless we get turned down by the handful of "elite" names, i just dont see it happening.
