On the flip side though, Rodriguez was the guy who was supposed to "change the way the Big Ten played". Ohio State had problems in the past with this style of offense and with the innovator of it being at the archrival was supposed to turn the tide.
I don't know that it would work in the SEC, but anything UK does to compete unless they dump a ton of money into the football program is gonna have to be a gamble or gimmick offense. Mike Leach (Air Raid), Rich Rodriguez (Spread Option), Gus Malzahn (Wildcat), or Paul Johnson (Triple Option) are the ideal candidates.
