The spread offense is coming to Ruston in a big way. Sonny Dykes, who spent the past three seasons as offensive coordinator at Arizona, is the Bulldogs' new coach. Dykes has been around the spread for a long time, but he learned many of its nuances while working under Mike Leach for seven seasons. One of Dykes' first hires was Tony Franklin, who will be the offensive coordinator. Franklin spent last season at Middle Tennessee State after what will probably be remembered as his coaching low — a failed half-season as Auburn's offensive coordinator. It might take a couple of seasons, but Dykes and Franklin should be a formidable team. The two worked together in the late-1990s at Kentucky.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted. Last year, the site displayed 69 posters.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com. Thanks to Malcolm!
