Most intriguing thing about Morris
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:42:46 pm »

Maybe biased here, but he has a MATH degree from a highly reputable institution.

He is a logical, critical thinker.  He is an analyst.  A problem solver.

In short, he is probably the smartest man in the room.

I like that too.

I cringed when Bielema was saying how we had bought some sophisticated analytics package he had been studying. Bielema just wasn't Bill James.

  When I got over being confused about what the heck is happening and who is this guy, and researched more  that was my conclusion.  I like him. Not sure about being the smartest guy in the room.  Depends on how big the room is and who is in there. I'm hoping for the best. We shall see.

Been my experience that the number cruncher types often have a hard shell, or are more introverted (not that thereís anything wrong with that). I obviously donít know the man, but from what Iíve seen and heard, heís got a strong offensive mind, but will cut up with the best of them....kind of a Bret Petrino...lol

Edit:  Does he ride motorcycles?

Meanwhile, Houston Nutt had a degree in PE.

No, I am not lying about that. It is true.

Bielema's degree is in marketing.

I suppose to be honest, that's probably the most appropriate degree for a modern college football coach.

So I think most of us can agree that in at least SOME rooms, CM would be the smartest in the room.

Bobby Petrino had a math degree and I don't think that's irrelevant.  Mathematicians don't just crunch numbers, but must also be able to analyze systems well to solve problems.

Marketing is no joke. It was one of my favorite classes.

His hire here alone already has a 2019 top QB prospect reconsidering Arkansas. Oh and he also already offered a recruit earlier today before he was even officially announced as HC. The man was hitting the ground running before the ink was dry, yet heís mediocre?

Nope, but I think it's interesting to look at our coach's fields of study.  Bielema seemed all about marketing and not so good with on-field decisions, in contrast to Petrino, who was a good critical thinker, but didn't give a hoot about marketing.

Morris may be a little of both, which is a winning combination.

IIRC, Jimmy Johnson's degree was in psychology and you could see that in how he prepared his players.  Urban Meyer's is also psychology, while Saban majored in business.

That makes perfect sense.  Probably one of the most detail-oriented coaches on the planet which I heard was one of CCM's traits as well.

Feel better and better about this hire all the time.
