    A lot of people have been complaining about the offense. In defense of Lincoln I know that we don't run the air raid offense. I also know that VT has one of the best defenses in the country this year. Bud Foster knows what he is doing and he has the talent to do it.

    Do you think there needs to be a change of the Offensive Coordinator? I don't believe that Lincoln has ever been mentored, (especially much by Leach) so I think it has been on the job training for him. I have found that the best OC's started out as grad assistants, then moved up to a position coach, then moved up to an asst. coordinator, then jumped up to Offensive Coordinator. They got to learn from others more knowledgible then they and grew in wisdom in each year. Lincoln essentially went from a grad asst. to a full fledged Offensive Coordinator. he didn't have anyone to help develop him as Leach ran the offense by himself.

    Thoughts?

    I do think it is time for a change. Yes, they had a 1,000+ yd. rusher last year and everything else, but all he knows how to do is pass, pass, pass. The rushing, etc. was against weak conf. teams. It appeared like he got all panicked last Saturday, even after it was shown mixing in running plays was working against VT and he continued to call pass plays. In the ever weak Conf. USA, right now ECU is a bit better and makes the offensive calling look good, but once it is pressed up against better defense's, esp. man coverage it is all halted. Riley is not cut out for this level at this time. If he could get some training, then maybe.
    It is just disappointing to see the defense hold up their end and Riley fail to convert on the many chances last Saturday. IMO, I wish the whole coaching staff would be let go, but the AD has given Ruffin a long extention......????? But, in typical ECU style, EVERY time we get a coach that is progressing forward ECU let's them get away. 21-20 career at ECU is what Ruffin is sporting, and with the next two ACC games it is going to be embarrassing. IF UNC does not beat ECU by 17 it will be shocking. At this rate, I will not have to spend money on season tickets and I think more folks will fall into the fold of getting fed up with this lack of offense.
