Starting afresh! The pro's and con's

I was hoping against all hope that Coach Tui would somehow represent the bridge between a coaching staff headed south and a group coming in from Boise State. It was nice to see that he was offered a position to stay, but it makes perfect sense for him to follow Sark since he will know the majority of the coaching staff and how he 'fits' in.

Having stated the obvious above, my concern or area of interest is how our players will embrace the new coaching staff and the culture they bring. From Twitter bans to 'concept uniforms', from coaching style-(hands on or coaching through the assistants) to practice regimes and conditioning. Everything I have heard from Coach Peterson during interviews indicate he is 'very real', humble, and authentic in his approach to life and coaching. I only bring up Ty Willingham's lack of success and ultimate sleeper train wreck he caused was partially due to a radical shift in coaching procedure and program culture. Ty seemed Robotic in all his actions...unconcerned or unaware that he was sucking the life out of the program. (I know there were 100+ other problems as well.

Does anyone have a thought or opinion on how this transition might play out? (I love the hire by the way... I appreciate Sark's work here, but at times he seemed a bit too philosophical...as he said...we only had about 3 bad quarters all season) I also have no desire to revisit the failure ofTW, but using his coaching era to spring board discussion regarding the pro's and con's of this transition
