In an undefeated scenario, a 13-0 Houston would have defeated two P5 opponents in Louisville and Vanderbilt (who they blanked 34-0), and also have wins against UC, a ranked Memphis and a ranked Temple. It wouldn't be the strongest schedule, but it would be 5 wins over decent competition.

If you're talking about coordinators, then Indiana State's Mike Sanford was Urban's OC at Utah. I only remember that because I believe his son, Mike Sanford Jr. was a candidate to replace Tom Herman. Unfortunately, Junior is now the head man in charge of the Irish attack.

I think Urban hired Tim Beck mainly for his ability as an OC/offensive mind, and not necessarily for his QB coaching skills. There's a cap to how many asst. coaches a program can have, so Beck might have absorbed the QB coach responsibilities as a necessity.

Yes, but you have to admit that there is also different levels of position coaches. There are coaches that can take a low-level recruit/diamond in the rough and mold them into All-Americans.

I'm not so much worried about Beck's ability as an co-OC, but more so his ability as a quarterbacks coach. Tom Herman was able to coach up Braxton Miller, Kenny Guiton, JT Barrett and Cardale Jones into great all-conference/starter material QBs. Whereas 4 games into this season, it looks like Cardale and JT have both regressed just a little bit from where they ended last season. So is Beck the cause of it or is there a different reason?
