  1. ACC Coaches Talk Anonymously About Conference Foes for 2021

    By the way, we are currently 7th in average star ratings for 2022 but obviously more work for all of the teams to complete their class (and hang on to their commits)
  2. ACC Coaches Talk Anonymously About Conference Foes for 2021

    Georgia Tech was 5th in average star ratings with 2021 class. We also had the smallest number of signees which clearly affected our ranking (and FSU). RANK SCHOOL TOTAL 5 STARS 4 STARS 3 STARS AVG POINTS 1 Clemson 19 2 14 3 3.95 2670 2 Miami (FL) 22 1 12...
  3. Expectations for the 2021 season

    Since Collins has a very strong defensive background, I am wondering if he should be calling defensive schemes? There are a number of head coaches which call offensive plays. Why can't Collins call defensive plays and leverage his experience while he breaks in a relatively inexpensive...
  4. Expansion Talk 2021

    I think this will come down to money. If the SEC and Big 10 are well above everyone else in revenue, teams will be clamoring to get in those conferences. The big key for the ACC is to find someway to up the TV rights significantly to start closing the revenue gap. With NIL in play, schools will...
  5. Expansion Talk 2021

    If those teams are in play, I would bet Georgia will fight to not be in the same division as Alabama. Auburn is their crossover so Alabama would be their only add. But obviously changes the equation with Alabama.
  6. A real Debate ( sorry don't make this about CPJ vs CGC )

    Coaching clearly is a piece. But there are other things that enter into it. Clearly money, fan support (ie filling up stadiums, support of the players, etc.), league you play in, ability to get players in the NFL, etc .
  7. Expectations for the 2021 season

    Folks we are not going back to the 3O no matter how many of you want to. I think 60/40 is okay but it needs to be mixed up more and much less predictable in terms of which down they do runs and passes. We also need more accuracy in the passing game which hopefully comes with experience from...
  8. CGC on Marty Smith's America the Podcast

    Everyone knows the wins and Xs and Os are still an unknown. But Collins is an expert at networking. This interview, the support he gets from the ACC network, positives GT is getting from 247 Sports and Rivals, etc. all play into getting both High School coaches and recruits attention. All of...
  9. Expectations for the 2021 season

    I clearly think the goal of a better win total was a big reason for the volume of transfers we brought in this year. Obviously some were not starters at big name schools. But most provide experience that you just can't get with incoming freshmen. Hopefully over time as we get more recruiting...
  10. Expectations for the 2021 season

    Last real recognizable Defensive Scheme was under Tenuta. It was definitely high risk/high reward. But he heavily recruited very fast linebackers several which ended up in the NFL. But at the end, if opponents stopped his blitzes, we definitely got burned. But it was fun to watch. And it did...
  11. Potential playoff expansion

    Even with 14 SEC (or ACC) teams, 3 permanent teams leaves 10 other opponents. So 5 of those each year means you play the other 10 teams in a 2 year period. So for those 10 teams you play each home and away over a four year cycle. I definitely like it. But the war will be which teams are the...
  12. NCAA Baseball Tournament

    Interesting to see CWS entries by conference: Pac 12 - 2 (Stanford, Arizona) SEC - 2 (Tennessee, Vanderbilt) possible 3 w/MS State ACC - 2 (Virginia, NC State) possible 3 w/Notre Dame Big 12 - 1 (Texas) So 4 of the 5 Power Conferences will have all 8 entries. College Baseball has consistently...
  13. Article Says BEST CASE Scenario Is 5-7

    Defense has been a significant problem since the 2008 and 2009 seasons. We had extremely talented defensive linemen those 2 years with some getting drafted. That position has been a real struggle since. We have had strong individual contributors to the DL since then, but not the depth across...
  14. Article Says BEST CASE Scenario Is 5-7

    I think best case scenario is 8 wins but that takes an enormous amount of things to go right. I just don't see a way right now to beat Clemson, Notre Dame or UGA. We will also be a significant underdog against Miami and North Carolina. We should be the favor against Northern Illinois...
  15. Jahmyr Gibbs, Quez Jackson named to preseason All-ACC team

    Back to the topic at hand, we will get more recognition for pre-Season ACC when we have a better record. Basically our OL, special teams (now that Harvin is gone) and the defense have no real recognition. Assuming we can play more balanced this year, awards should come. It is hard to overcome...
  16. Preseason Depth Chart Thoughts

    I agree we need significantly more than 3 wins. But to compare it to Dodd is way unfair. GT was part of the SEC during the Dodd years (and oh by the way he is the one that walked away from the SEC), black athletes were non-existent in the South for Division 1 schools (historical black colleges...
  17. Returning players for 2021-22

    I would think most have to return and they all go out. They have had 2 solid seasons with good results and most either have their degree or are close. I would suspect most will give it a try to get to the next level. I agree with the comment that Devoe will probably not come back if most of...
  18. Preseason Depth Chart Thoughts

    We really need to win 4 of the first 6 since the back half of the schedule is more difficult (especially with ND and GA back to back at the end). To get to 6 and 6 we need to beat UNI and Kennesaw St (which scares me to death when we couldn't stop the Citadel spread offense though we should be...
  19. ACC Tourney

    Let's hope the UNC/FSU winner comes out of the game unscathed (injury wise and Covid 19 issues). I still think beating the #2 Seed (who was #1 until the last game of the regular season) or the #6 seed who is the hottest team in the tourney would make the ACC Championship legit. And also would...
  20. 2021 Season Tickets

    I haven't renewed yet because I am debating on renewing parking. Paying $40 per game for parking is fine when you tailgate but not so much if you are just parking to go to the game. Seats at MB are comparable to where I sit at Bobby Dodd so football tickets are fine.
