  1. Fire Geoff Collins

    I don't think coaches losing the team should be the debate. But I do think playing with confidence (not over confident) is crucial. That means the players feel the coaches are calling the right schemes to make them successful. That allows you to play fast and loose and make the right plays. I...
  2. Fire Geoff Collins

    As weird as it sounds, the Duke game really is crucial for this year. A win puts us at 3-3 and provides some momentum before a bye week. If we win that game, I still think we have a shot at wins. Conversely if we lose that game, it really could be another 3 win season. If that happens, I...
  3. Pitt is favored

    It is tough to play 3 emotional games in a row. We have played well against Clemson (primarily defense) and NC. Keeping it together 3 straight weeks on an emotional high is not easy. A huge key is whether Jeff Sims can play error free football. He obviously proved Saturday he has all kinds...
  4. Updated win loss projections

    I feel 6 wins is about right and obviously a big key would be GT to get to a bowl. We will be big underdogs to ND and GA. I think we will be plus or minus 7 points or less (in terms of being favored or underdog) in every other game. My guess would be favorite over Duke, pick em against VA...
  5. Corner turned?

    CDP calls very vanilla plays on average (in my opinion). When you have superior talent, you can make any plays work. But when you have equal or less talent than your competition, your schemes make a huge difference. I think the jury still remains out. But when you want to replace someone, you...
  6. 2021 ACC and Competition News

    I don't think the ACC has a chance at getting into the playoffs this year. The top ranked ACC team in this week's AP poll is NC State at 23 (WF is at 24, Clemson is at 25). Likely playoff suspects: SEC - Alabama and GA (hate it but unless they stumble against Florida or Auburn, just don't see...
  7. How much HATE you got?

    The issue with playing UGA Thanksgiving weekend is you lose a lot of the students and way too many season ticket holders sell their tickets. Season ticket holders should either sell to know GT fans or eat their tickets. It galls me no end to see so many UGA fans in GT season ticket spots. In...
  8. UNC vs Tech point spread

    I think slowing the game down is right. But I think a combo of run and pass is okay with Yates. He seems very confident throwing the short to medium passes and that allows you to control clock. Just saying run the ball based on our OL currently and what we have seen so far this year doesn't...
  9. Today in Analytics...

    Obviously the Northern Ilinois loss has heavily influenced all of these lists. Especially since Michigan won against them 63-10 yesterday. This will correct over time only if we can get some wins over the next few weeks.
  10. Game 3 #GTvsCLEM Predictions

    I do think Clemson will try to run it up...both for the polls and also he is very loyal to PJ. PJ defended Dabo when he first started as head coach and I always think Dabo did let up against Johnson when he could (obviously the first several years of Johnson's tenure we won some and were...
  11. 2021 ACC and Competition News

    I think it comes down to head coaches AND coordinators. Having deep pockets and being able to spend big dollars of coordinators give you a much better chance for success. Miami is a smaller school, plays at a stadium 20+ miles from Campus and suffers lower revenue from the ACC conference. I...
  12. What some of the "money" is saying

    Looks like the final straw with the blowout loss to Stanford. You definitely could debate why not at the end of last year. But they were 5-1 last year which might have given hope that things were on the right track. Looks like the AD is basically stating I did everything I could but this is on...
  13. Credit for the Win today

    I just don't think we will move the ball on offense. Clemson held Georgia to 10 points and no offensive TDs. And facing facts, GA has a far superior Offensive Line to us currently. I think the only realistic way to even be in this game is multiple turnovers by Clemson and leaving us short...
  14. UNC at MBS kickoff at 7:30p

    This is all about money. Last year was supposed to be Notre Dame. Next year is Clemson (kickoff game) and 2024 is Notre Dame. Though NC is only going to be the lower bowl for seats, Clemson and Notre Dame will be sellouts with full stadium capacity. At nearly 70K fans and ticket cost ~$75...
  15. Fire Geoff Collins

    I am also concerned about the offensive line play. Both Mason and Gibbs got hit at the line of scrimmage multiple times. And Yates was under a lot of pressure (which by the way, he handled very well). But at the end, we scored almost 50 points so a lot more went right than wrong. I think...
