Pittman and Odom seem to have very strong chemistry together. Odom’s “dream job” would likely have been his alma mater. Except they just fired him as HC. So, I don’t look for Odom to leave for just anywhere. His relationship with Pittman will be a factor, I think.
What both seem to believe in (and helps make them a good fit) - fundamentals lead to technique which leads to strategy which leads to execution. Odom knows how to connect the different position rooms together without a hitch. That has to be a challenge to begin with, let alone via Zoom videos. The players know how to tackle, how to read the offense pre-snap, and how to orient their eyes and hips to the play. I don’t recall a single snap this season where I felt we were scrambling to get into position, pre-snap. I don’t recall a single snap where a player arrived late to their spot because they were set up wrong.
I had the misfortunate of my usual lower bowl seats being reassigned to the upper deck. But, I moved from a lower yard line to near the 50! And, it allowed me to see the DB positioning. After the opening two drives, the DBs cheated inside the WRs at least one step, if not 2-3. It allowed for quicker crashes to the corner of the LOS for run support. Everything funnels to the LBs and nickel safety. They counted on the CBs being able to read the play to not let the WR catch the ball and turn outside/up the sideline. Obviously, Corral’s good arm is not good enough to go over the top or hit a seam (like the Mallet pass to Cobi to end the first half of the LSU game in LR that one glorious year).
