Missouri’s new offensive coordinator has Bill Connelly pondering black thoughts.
In theory, Dooley can simply build complexity on top of what Heupel had established, giving Mizzou the capability to hit the brakes (Heupel’s offense was fourth in Adj. Pace last year) and come up with a Plan B for when solid defenses slow down the base attack.
It’s not hard to see the potential downside, though. Going from simple to complex, from “spread” to “pro-style” — though those terms grow more fungible each year — could lead to you misplacing your strengths in the name of fixing weaknesses.
And by god, if Dooley prevents us from seeing another year of Lock-to-Hall deep balls, he should be banished from college football.
New Mizzou motto: if it ain’t broke, let SOD break it.
