Colter said on his show yesterday that Erickson will be heavily involved in mentoring the new OC this spring.
So it's kind of like Texas Tech sending coaches to MSU for "finishing school" :D

I think with this hire of Justin Udy, who's specialty is 'grooming' QB's, will make this spring & fall QB competition really something to watch.

* Does Casey Bauman, who might have the most physically gifted arm of the bunch, with the right coaching come out and seize the starting position?

* With almost a full year starting under his belt, does Tucker Rovig take the next step in consistency & performance under Udy's mentoring?

* Does Matt McKay show he's stands above everyone and thrives under our system and coach Udy?

My guess is we won't know who the starter is until 2-3 weeks before our opener with Long Island on Sep 5th. GO CATS!

Well, his resume is not his strong point, so to win this OC position at MSU he would have had to had some strong people in his corner who spoke to his capabilities and his interview must have been a revelation. I trust Coach Choate to know what he will bring to the table. I loved Matt Miller and felt he was just beginning to hit his stride last season.

Curious to see what kind of Offense Udy wants to install at MSU. Another fun offseason talking point, and more grist for the mill! :)
You say that his resume wasn't his strong point, and also they you loved Matt Miller.

Udy has a better resume coming into the OC job than Miller did.
Obviously it's an opinion simply shared, but I think backed up by what Coach Choate shared on the hire. Sharp guy, backed up by sharp guys, who was able to communicate a style and vision that intrigued Coach.

Alright? Has some potential I guess?
Sounds like a great hire. Heard Udy is very smart and aggressive. Can't wait for spring. I trust Jeff.
Agreed, trust Choate.

Learning under Wells at Tech is a great thing as well…interested to see what changes our offense has. Imagine our DNA stays the same … with running backs like we do its hard not to succeed.
Sources I talked described him as "rising star", "unbelievably prepared" and "a straight genius."
Colter...any chance you'll get him on for an interview with you and Tootell?

I think one of the benefits next fall is teams won’t know our tendencies out of the gate. Yes we are run first, but play calling can follow human nature which Udy and Miller will have differences.

Think the biggest challenge will be the self scout and adjustments made after coaches in the big sky start to catch up. Miller did a good job of that after the North Dakota game.

Will be interesting how well he develops qb’s.
