Good stuff AZ. I'm sure Scott is pretty stoked being back home and getting to lead NU.Scott's nickname for Ozigbo is "Ziggy Stardust."
Scott is fired up about building the walk-on program. Said we'll be seeing the benefits in a year or two.
Lot's of callers just welcoming Scott back and tell him how thrilled they are he's here. Scott's comment to all of them "Thanks, man, appreciate it." Scott also names the mascot of their football teams - some guy from Decatur just called in, and Scott new the mascot.
Said Austin Allen is really coming on. Said he benefited in a huge way from the strength and conditioning program.
Question on percent of the playbook might be used on Saturday. Scott said about 80% but the key is to execute well what we have, and we'll expand as the season develops.
Caller - "Welcome back and God Bless ya" Scott's answer, "Thanks man." Duck - R - basically like the old wingback position. Scott's dad played it, Johnny Rodgers played it.
Next caller "Hey coach, God Bless you, been waiting for you since the Osborne days." Caller asked if we'd be half as fast as UCF, and Scott said "yeah, I think you'll see we will, the key is playing fast and no fear of failure."
Caller "how many plays do you script at the beginning of game" Scott "we don't like to do a lot of scripting - we have a "hot list" but we adopt (paraphrasing) our play calling to what the defensed is showing us.
Young man called in and asked about Mo Washington. Scott said his nickname was "Space Cowboy."
Said Mo was going to be special. Said he probably should be using the TO mode and saying that "He has a chance of being a decent player" but Scott said "he's just going to be special."
