Okay, try to get past the annoying title. Full disclosure, I am a Texas Longhorn student and fan. On December 6, the school formally cut ties with much-maligned offensive coordinator Greg Davis after a 5-7 embarrassment. The rumor mill has been swirling regarding his replacement at OC. Among a handful of names, Bryan Harsin appears to be at or near the top of the wishlist. And by this I do not refer to some stupid fans' wishlist, I mean the guys that make the power moves and donate the money. To make this brief I'm on a fact finding mission to satisfy my own curiosity.
My general questions, if you are willing to help me out:
I admit I know nothing about the guy. His position is OC but how much control does he have over the offense? Is Peterson the man pulling all the strings on game day, or does he truly delegate the play-calling to Harsin?
What is the fans' general sentiment toward Harsin (unnoticed, overachiever, mediocre?)
What is his style of offense (pro-style, pass-spread, run-spread, multiple formations?)
What is the most annoying thing you see on offense at Boise St? (an oft-called play, some annoying tendency?)
What is your favorite thing about the Broncos' offense?
No I don't expect you to answer all these questions, but I'm eager for any answers.
Disclaimer: I have absolutely no intention of "trolling". These are honest questions and I've been following multiple sources that make claims about Bryan Harsin:

In addition, the Texas staff visited Boise State for offensive advice during the summer of 2010 so there is a prior relationship to some degree.
Take what I say with whatever confidence you wish. I truly believe Bryan Harsin is a target but nothing is official.
I come in peace, I know it's easy to attack the foreigner but bear with me!
