Lets leave these topics alone.

SMU infractions were against the rules of the game played (or not dependent upon your interpretations) and as such are institutional issues; as was lawyering up to fight in the courts and not working within their association.

The tragic events at X and Acadia are individuals committing crimes, and has nothing to do with football aside from the fact that these (alleged) criminals happened to be football players. (alleged until proven)

The events at X and Acadia are the teams football players committing serious crimes. The FX AD, who is also the AUS president said nothing about his players who were involved in the crime, or about the Acadia player, but had plenty to say about a possible ineligible player at SMU who was approved to play by the CIS, and following that the courts ordered the game to take place, in contradiction to what the AUS AD took it upon himself to do.   The courts ruled in favour of SMU playing in the game - against the AUS.

If you can't discern a difference between these events then I am not sure how you even know how to log onto a computer let alone dress yourself in the morning. What an idiot ... very AJ Wallingesque.

Oh I can see the difference, AUS President was involved in a conflict of interest - speaking out about an SMU player when it was before the courts, he also happened to be FX AD, and took it upon himself to cancel the game, and then had his own team practicing to play, prior to cancellation of the game and reinstatement, as the game was ordered back by the judge. FX AD went against the CIS decision. Had no problems going against the rules, speaking out while this was in the courts to do this, but all of a sudden he's hush hush on his own players involved in a crime.  And you support this.  Better take a hard look in the mirror at yourself before you go calling anyone names.

So back to the original thread and title;
the OC listed on the Sea Dogs website is AJ Tufford but he really wasn't the OC last yr 2017, and now they are whispering that Cory Goff will be the new OC for 2018. Is there anything these guys won't do to get Tufford out of the Offense?

He was certainly the main OC last year. If they didn't want him, or felt he didn't add any value to the team, they would fire him. This isn't tee ball with volunteer coaches.

Tufford is signed to a 4 year contract, better to just not let him bother with the OC but still keep on with the admin duties that an assistant coach does.

Tough on the guy actually performing the role
Hopefully they fix that when his contract is over

That's crazy and just not a smart move by SMU. You can bet that Tufford isn't going to perform his duties to the best of his abilities if that's the only reason they're keeping him around. In fact, he would be a liability in my mind if this were the case.

It does not look like he was the OC last year - the team did well.  Some one else filled that role.  From the sounds of things most likely AJ will not be this year either.  He does not seem to have the skill set, mindset- football knowledge - acumen for the OC position.  He seems to be more of a positional coach - for receivers performing to the best of his abilities. SMU needs to change his title to reflect that & give the Off Cos more credit who are actually performing the role.  This year will be Corey Goff.   SMU look to be tip toeing around that issue.   Perhaps some unknown issues going on behind the scenes...

Here is what AJ did in Winnipeg as the OC at Football Canada in Winnipeg 2016 They are an under 16 team
the league is currently looking for coaches

In 2016 they beat 1 team and then lost to them
Offense didnt look particularly impressive

This year with all the problems SMU faced last year, they had their challenges recruiting.  Who knows what this year will bring.

Last year - significant change & improvement to the offence & team overall. The guy overseeing offence was not AJ: It was TD.

http://www.smuhuskies.ca/sports/fball/coaches/index

Will he be returning this year?


If not, and if the Cory Goff rumours are true, it would make sense he would oversee OC position.  He has a fair bit of experience & success in the game, strong recruiter and would be in a better position than AJ to help the team, not just on offence, but overall.  Could see him as the next HC.

This Goff guy was listed as a defensive coach there years ago, nothing on their website today, so moving him to the offense now would be a slap in the face to Tutford, who does everything to keep that sinking, rule breaking, ship afloat. Good coach or bad coach I don't know but he's the only guy ever around but he's the one guy who actually graduated from SMU. And if Goff is the greatest recruiter in Canada then he should go find all those Americans that left SMU before exams and recruit some grades for them. A couple of Canadians jumped off that ship too but they weren't eligible anyways.  Grin

That article on Goff is from 2015??? is that his website?

Whatever happens X will be better, Bishops will be better and Acadia isn't going far. SMU will be battling to stay out of the cellar with MtA.

Tufford may do the admin stuff, but as far as OC - looks like others have been responsible and may be again this year.  If he was that good, they wouldn't be bringing others in to do the job or help out.
The goal is for the team to improve, do well and win some games.
Agree that SMU are going to have a tough time this year because of all the negative press last year. So they really need someone who can improve on the game.  Just because someone hangs around doesn't mean he's got the talent.  Either means no one else wants it, or to be tied to that program right now. Could also be a $$ salary, logistics or some other issue.  Will find out more as the year progresses.

If it's not Goff or any other OC, and it's AJ this year, the team will most likely be a 0 - 8 to 2- 6 team.
We will find out soon enough when FB season starts. 

Goff was hired as a DC, but he's also been an OC, and recruiter. If he's the OC this year, he will have his work cut out for him. Won't be easy.  Bishops will do well this year and maybe FX with Acadia.

Here's Goff's background:

Huskies Football Announces Defensive Coaching Staff
Aug 29, 2016   

Coach James Colzie III, is pleased to welcome three new Defensive Coaches and two returning coaches to the 2016 Defensive Coaching staff.
Newcomers are:
Corey Goff - Co–Defensive Coordinator/Recruiting
The info on Goff from the Huskies website was 2016,
Quote
Corey Goff comes to Halifax as Saint Mary's co-defensive coordinator, recruiting coordinator, and defensive line coach. Goff has over 24 seasons of coaching experience and extensive knowledge coordinating all 3 phases of the game.

 "It is truly an honour to join the Saint Mary's University family," says Goff. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to coach at one of the nation's most storied football programs. I can't wait to get started."

A native of Regina, Saskatchewan, Goff received his Bachelor's Degree from Valley City State University in North Dakota. He played receiver for the Vikings from 1995 to 1998. Goff was a member of the 1996 NDCAC Championship team. Besides playing football, he also coached three seasons of varsity men's basketball with the Vikings.

Goff began his coaching career in 1991, coaching quarterbacks and running backs at F.W. Johnson Colligate in Regina SK, the high school where he graduated from.

After returning from college in 1999, Goff became the receivers coach and passing game coordinator with the Sheldon Williams Colligate Spartans in Regina, SK. After an impressive 6-1 regular season record, the Spartans went on to win a 4A City and Provincial Championship.

Goff returned to his alma mater, F.W. Johnson, in 2000, and was instrumental in reigniting the Wildcats program. In 2001, the F.W. Johnson Wildcats went undefeated in the regular season and won a 3A City Championship.

In 2000, when the Regina Thunder Junior Football Program (known then as the Prairie Thunder) of the Prairie Football Conference (PFC) of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) was been formed, Goff was one of the key founding members of the coaching staff. He coached two seasons with the CJFL Regina Thunder as special teams' coordinator and linebackers coach.

From there, Goff moved out West to coach the Vancouver Trojans of the British Columbia Football Conference (B) of the CJFL as the offensive coordinator for the 2004 and 2005 seasons.

In 2006, Goff accepted a coaching position with the Big Kahuna Rams of the B as the offensive coordinator, assistant head coach, and special teams' coordinator. In 2009 he moved back to the defensive side of the ball as the defensive coordinator. Besides Junior Football, Goff also coached the linebackers with Seaquam Secondary (high school) in Delta, BC and in 2006 helped the Seahawks to a 5-1 regular season record and an AA Provincial Championship.

He didn't run the Wing-T at Ottawa, he ran the Double Wing offense.  The main play in the Double Wing is the Super Power and the OL have foot-to-foot splits.  There are 2 TEs and 2 Wingbacks.  Very difficult to be successful with a double wing ball control offense in 3 down football....much easier to use a ball control offense when you have 4 downs.

It was probably the most epic coaching fail in CIS football history when Etch tried to install this offense at Ottawa.  Still, I applaud his bravery for going outside the mold and trying something new.  I would be SHOCKED if he tried to do this again at SMU.  There would be a mutiny before he even had a chance to install it.

The wing-t would actually be easier to adapt to the 3 down game compared to the double wing.  The old Western teams under Haylor had a strong wing-t influence to their offense.  Many high school programs are running wide open shotgun wing-t offenses and putting up big numbers.  Some even say that Auburn's offense is a version of the shotgun wing-t.
