  1. Great AJC Article

    4 star recruits need to be developed just like 3 star or no star recruits. There have been comments that Collins staff was more focused on 'recruiting stars' than evaluation. The staff took alot of recruits that were not highly regarded and not highly recruited by P5 schools. We will find out...

    It's been a business for a long time, but it has really exploded in the last 10-15 years. I have become alot less invested in college football and basketball over that time as you could see the bifurcation coming where just a handful of programs are truly competing for championships. I used to...
  3. Dontae!!!

    That is very good news.
  4. Key’s Staff

    McKenzie feels like a pretty good hire to me. Experience at a high academic P5. Experience in GA. I like the idea of him being RB and ST coach. Worked with Faulkner at Arkansas St - so they should be pretty familiar with each other.

    I sort of hope Sergio does not end up at GT. 36 snaps in 3 years does not suggest someone that is likely to play much at GT. Tchio had 200 snaps in 2 years at Clemson and was a non factor this season at GT. In most cases the players who have made the biggest contributions to GT have been the...

    Some more metrics based analysis on Faulkner
  7. Key’s Staff

    Thanks for doing this. I sort of expect the offense in Key's tenure to be more hard nosed run based. That seems to fit his personality, but I could be 100% wrong. At the very least I am expecting a pretty balanced offense. FWIW, I don't think hiring Key (and who he is hiring as assts) is...
  8. ACC Discussion 2022

    If he decides not to go to Liberty and rejoin Chadwell I could see McCall looking at NC ST as well. Not far from home and an offensive coordinator that has worked really well with QB's with skill sets similar to his.

    NC St has hired Robert Anae from Syracuse to be its new OC. Good hire for them. He was at UVA with Armstrong 2 years ago - there are some rumors Armstrong could transfer to NC ST to reunite with Anae.
  10. NIL, Transfers, and Stratospheric Salaries. What Is the Future of GT Football and College Football in General?

    I don't think the sport is dying but it is changing. Attendance at games has been decreasing consistently for over 15 years now (with the exception of 2021 being bigger than 2020 due to COVID). What's interesting, most plans to update college stadiums now look at reducing the number of seats...

    Hall has used all his eligibility.

    We definitely need some experience in the WR room. Lane suffered a season ending injury in 2021 during game 7. Best year by far was the COVID year with 29 catches for 409 yds and 2 TD. Played in 8 games this season with 7 catches for 79 yds (was tied 8th in receptions and 10th in rec yards). I...

    Reading back over recruiting articles it looks like Long was known as a good run blocker in HS (for a run heavy team) and then got G5 offers after catching the ball well at a 7-on-7 competition before his senior year. He originally committed to Tulane in July 2021, but decommitted in November...

    The weird thing that stands out to me about Wade is the 3 year coaching gap. After his one season as OC/OL at UT Martin he did not coach again until 2021. He coach at GA Southern in 2021. It then looks like Tulane hired him to be their OL coach for 2022 but App State came along and hired him...
  15. Brent Key contract details

    Ken's article is very helpful. It is clear GT didn't have a huge pool of money, but maximized what they could. The fact that the incentives were largely in line with what I believe the incentives were for Collins suggest this isn't a result of decreasing the guaranteed and increasing the...
