RE: Whipple to UMass 


I kind of liked Whipple..I always thought he might have made a good HC here.  He was definitely an up and comer, previous HC experience at the collegiate level, had NFL ties and experience, probably would have had the ultimate goal to jump to the League. He was aggressive in his offensive play calling and would have instilled his brash persona unto the team.  He had all the ingredients I thought to be successful here if he had been given the chance.

I'm sure many of us remember his sideline blow up in the '09 Clemson game where it appeared that he lost it over what seemed to be inept game management by Shannon just before halftime.

Spiller didn't win it by himself. He had A LOT of help from the Miami offense.

I remember vaguely.  It was an issue over a timeout or something right before the half as they were driving.  I think Shannon called the timeout and Whipple wanted to keep the pedal to the metal and momentum by hurrying up to the line.  They did not end up scoring or something like that.

I do know things were never the same between them after that.

He was aggressive to a fault. He never pulled the reigns in on Jacory when he started throwing lollipop interceptions.

Fisch was much better at managing the quarterbacks.

That was his style, love it or hate it, and it wasn't like he could put AJ Highsmith in there who was the backup qb at the time.

Good luck to the guy, I wish him nothing but the best. I don't root for anyone to fail, regardless of what some may think. He had his shot here, it didn't work out, and the rest is history.

I believe Whipple is the coach that recruited Morris.  Speaking of Morris, the dude had like three coordinators in his time here.  That's rough for anybody.  Best of luck to Whipple.  He should do well up there.

Pretty much every quarterback we've had since Dorsey has had the same situation yet our fans constantly want to fire coordinators.

The Offense left too many points on the field, hell our Defense even scored that day. Whipple downfall was that he called the same plays back-to-back and never opened up his supposed playbook.

they scored on an interception return and we scored on a fumble recovery. Take away those two scores and they still scored 33 points while we scored 30.

And I am still scratching my head why we are kicking off directly to Spiller right before the half who was killing us that day. He took one back all the way.

True.. Whipple would call the same plays back to back, especially when they were successful. Don't necessarily see that as a fault though.   Good coordinators should attack what they see as the weakness on the defense until they adjust.

He reportedly had an encyclopedic offensive playbook but given he was there one year I am not sure how much of it he could be expected to implement in such a short amount of time.
