Oh nothing. Just that he was hoping for a change at OC position, but he is disappointed there is not going to be one. He feels that under Crowton, LSU will never maximize the potential of their skill players. and he doesn't want to wind up like Russell Shepard!

I don't think it's possible for him to have the same degree of an impact because of his position, really. PP was great not only because of what happened when QBs tried to force the ball into the WR he was covering, but because a lot of time, he had a deterrent effect.
Avery's impact is going to have to be as much felt (if not more) in the blocking scheme for running plays and screens than it will be in the passing game. I'm not familiar enough with his measurables and his technique to know how well he'll fill this role, and that's what would limit his impact on the team as opposed to Randle, Boone, etc., who have had time under Moffitt.
