I was surprised to see that he and Bob Stoops haven't talked since he was fired. Things can be looked at from different perspectives, on one hand, behind the scenes, Bob Stoops might of been to controlling in regards to the offense, but on the other hand, it wasn't Bob Stoops that was forcing Josh Heupel to burn most of the game clock to find that perfect play and then ultimately, either having to call a time-out or the play busting.
Josh Heupel at Missouri was a lot like at Oklahoma. Had nice numbers on the surface, but in many cases were inflated due to the weak opposition faced to somewhat override the noticeably less offensive performances against the better defenses. Like everything, there were a couple of exceptions to that.
Josh Heupel is doing great so far at UCF, but he real test is in a few years when the team loses the influence and recruits of Scott Frost and the team is truly his own. Nebraska thought things would keep rolling with Solich and Oregon thought things would keep rolling with Helfrich, but after a few years on their own, that proved to not be the case.
