  1. Maryland's move to BIG10, would have been better off moving too?

    We haven’t been in the SEC for 60 years. When you say historical that is prehistoric. We’ve been in ACC for 40 years now. The fans that actually remember us in SEC are mostly over 70+.
  2. Maryland's move to BIG10, would have been better off moving too?

    It is sad to see the only reason to go to BIG10 is to fix our finances. By the way Maryland’s finances were way worse than ours, that is why they had to move to BIG10 originally. Personally I prefer being in ACC. I also feel most of the coaches are over paid. I would like us to shift as much...
  3. Maryland's move to BIG10, would have been better off moving too?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2022/12/01/maryland-football-future/ Interesting article from J Feinstein on Maryland's move to the BIG10. Makes me think we would be in a similar position if we would have moved. Yes we would have a lot more money, however as far as in conference we...
  4. Your Choice for OC

    Another name to throw in. Currently QB coach at VT. Local ties with GA St. Could be OC or Co-OC with Weinke.
  5. Key’s Staff

    It is always interesting how people are interpreting these actions. Caralla wasn't the only one let go quickly. There could be many reasons they were let go. From what I've read a S&C coach is very important to execute a coaches vision because they basically are the off-season head coach. For...
  6. HC Candidate/Rumors/Info Thread

    I agree with most of what you say here, though disagree with the framing. You are framing this as we are P5, have the history, and so we should be a top 25 program. This is not only in results but also spending, etc. This ignores the fact that basically since we left SEC, we haven't been a...
  7. Key’s Staff

    DFO Scott Wallace leaving. https://footballscoop.com/thescoop/the-scoop-friday-december-2-2022
  8. Your Choice for OC

    Meant he is being paid $11M buyout from Wisconsin as per https://footballscoop.com/news/fbs-head-coach-buyout-tracker-2022-23 . So not sure he is looking for a job.
  9. Your Choice for OC

    I've see some places that Chryst had a $20M buyout. I'd be surprised if is available.
  10. Your Choice for OC

    I think targeting younger coaches, who may have been given HC position too soon. Not saying it will always work, however these coaches are still early in their career and want to redeem themselves. I think Marcus Arryo, Will Healy, or Jake Spavital are good examples. An added plus is they have...

    I am in favor of using the Saban method of hiring assistant coaches who have failed as HC to coordinator positions. We could do this with G5 coaches.
  13. Key’s Staff

    Our finances are obviously a big factor in all this. I am hopeful that J did the analysis on financials already and targeted the coaches he thought were in that range. Then once he knew what the actual demands would be had to decide if it was worth the extra price. Remember he is looking at...
  14. Official: Brent Key is Georgia Tech Football's Head Coach

    I think the bigger thing to gain from this is someone understands marketing very well. They knew if we hire a coach the players knew and liked, that it would lead to this scene, and used it to promote the hiring. Any other coach would have been new to the players and they would understandably be...
  15. Key’s Staff

    I think we will hear quickly on who is retain ed on the staff. That way they can start looking for jobs, and we can start looking for replacements. One thing that may delay this is if a coach is involved in recruiting a player we want to make sure comes.
