I had a buddy send me a link to a tweet about the Cumberland game. He then asked if Geoff Collins was coaching Cumberland that day...... :LOL:
I mean, he has given up 70+ to Clemson and 50+ to GA and Pitt and Cumberland gave up 222 that day and put nothing on the board offensively, soooooo.... ;)
I was there. Unbelievable victory and thought it was going to lead to a great season. Not so much with 10 straight losses. 😐
I was at the 3-3 win over Notre Dame in 1980 as well. One amazing game!
Having said that, I was not a big Curry fan. Similar thoughts on Collins unfortunately.
Agree that he wasn't literally run out of Tuscaloosa, but as I recall they were not going to extend him and they certainly didn't like him and someone did throw a brick through his office window, so Curry got out before he WAS forced out. He certainly was not going to last much longer in...
Oriental, not sure of your age or when you started following Tech football, but Curry was an absolute train wreck for most of his tenure. Yes, he had a winning record at Alabama, but got a brick thrown through his office window because he couldn't beat Auburn. Many of his recruits were seniors...
A 7 year contract is ridiculous. A 5 year contract would’ve been more than fine. If this is Collins’ dream job, he wouldn’t have turned down a 5 year contract. Stupid decision to hire him, dumber to give him a 7 year contract. Hope he proves me wrong. 🤷🏽♂️
