  1. Team's Biggest Failure

    We can blame officiating, poor O line play, lack of pass rush, poor tackling, injuries, youth and inexperience, excessive penalties, clock management, place kicking, play calling, individual performance, KO coverage and returns, and others but the biggest team failure to me is we have not...
  2. When the TO3 died

    I really like CPJ and love the TO3. Under Nesbitt, Washington, and J Thomas there was great play, excitement, and often good results. All the skill players were used: BBs, ABs, WRs, and QBs. Unfortunately the TO3 died in 2017 against Tennessee. T Marshall played a spectacular game at QB and...
  3. Vision for the Future Offense

    Something like Elon a few years back: 2 WR wideouts, a slotback (former AB), 2 RBs (former BBs) and a duel threat QB in the shotgun in the backfield. An under center QB (maybe T Oliver) for short yardage and inside the 10. Use of inside and outside double option and lots of misdirection. Use of...
  4. Who Coaches the Scout Team?

    Every week we face a new opponent with a different O and different key personnel to defend. Someone has to put together a team to simulate the opponent in practice. He has to coach up a lot of players for different roles each week. That Scout team coach needs to be a very experienced and...
  5. OLine lineup for Pitt

    Any info on the OLine for Pitt with Cooper joining the group? Will Cooper play center or guard? Is Quinney out? Bryan on the move? Lee on the move? Centers platooning?
  6. If I Were Coach For a Day

    Like most of you I have no inside information, Have seen no practices or off season drills, cannot control future injuries or attrition, cannot predict when Jordan is 100%, and will know little about the upcoming offseason or Fall Camp. I was at the Spring Game and have watched the complete...
  7. OT depth

    Our O and D positions are well covered from a depth standpoint except for OT. We were in great shape before Klock and Fromayan departed. ( Center could become an issue without Marshall available as a backup ). Marshall is certainly a capable starter at OT but he has missed some playing time...
  8. Special Team Playmakers

    My kudos for playmakers on special teams: Butker for clutch points and consistent deep kickoffs Rodwell for flawless holding on PATs and field goals and improvement in punts Stewart for exception ball handling on punt returns Lewis for maybe our best all around ST player Wilson for flawless...
  9. Blocking Techniques

    In the Dodd era the blocking techniques were shoulder drive blocks (same as today) and cross body blocks using your hips vs shoulder and helmet. If you watch the games from the sixties and seventies you will see very effective cross body blocks completely stopping and tying up defenders (not...
  10. Extra Tickets for Mercer Home Opener

    Anyone know if GTAA is offering extra free tickets for season ticket holders for the Mercer Home Opener?
  11. Tony Zenon Update

    Saturday evening Tony Zenon married Abby Baines at St Ives Country Club in a wonderful N Orleans flavored ceremony attended by hundreds of friends, including several GT footballers. Tony and Abby have graduated and settled into jobs in the NE Atlanta area. D Hill and Q Nealy were in the wedding...
  12. UVA First Play

    @Longestday please look at the first offensive play by GT. The playside AB blocks inside on what turns out to be a TO pitch. Nobody blocks the CB. The AB thinks it is a midline? The OT goes after the MLB as a TO? Can you tell what is going on?
  13. Tony Zenon

    Tony is now graduated, engaged, and settled into his new job. His High School is retiring his Jersey tonight. Congrats to a fine young Tech Man! http://m.albanyherald.com/news/2015/sep/17/deerfield-windsor-to-retire-former-standout-tony/?templates=mobile
  14. AB Blocking

    I did not see all the blocks and have not had a chance to study any game film but from stadium observation I saw 4 really good AB blocks on outside runs, two by Willis, one by T Marshall, and one by Lynch. Those blocks were feet up take downs. I am sure there were more. Only completely non block...
  15. Substitution Takaways

    Overall I was impressed with both the offense and defense substitutions, both who and when, and especially the freshmen . (1) Sewak left Devine in on every O play until about 3 minutes before halftime, well after the other starting O linemen had given way to subs. I sure this was testing his...
  16. Linebackers

    Of course PJ Davis and Marcordes and probably Lewis can bring the pass rush but who among the LBs are good coverage players, if any? I would expect Noble. Any others?
  17. OL Coach Not Happy With Starters, Backups

    PREDICTION: The OL IMO will be great this year. The coaches are in motivation mode. The backups are getting cross-trained to play multiple positions so there is a temporary trade-off between learning and performance. We are in the sore and dead leg phase of practice. Football is played with...
  18. Another A-back Discussion

    CPJ indicated that while he was comfortable with the AB situation, some had specific talents that he might utilize in their best roles. I am including Willis as a scholly AB in this discussion. In 2013 we used 8 ABs in rotation ( Bostic, Zenon, Andrews, Days, Snoddy, Perkins, Hill, and...
  19. OL Competition: Players 5 through 11

    If we are looking for the best 5 O linemen we are only looking for one more than these four: Chamberlain, Braun, Burden, and Joe. Competition is among Marshall, Fromayan, Devine, Brown, Klock, Bryan, and outside shot Stickler. If Devine or Brown are in the top 2 of the 7 in competition for...
  20. Roster Updated

    Roster was updated today with jersey numbers for the freshmen and 9 new walk-ons were added: one AB, two LB, one DL, Four OL, and one K. Any details on these players? (Previously I saw some info on one of the LBs.) There is some beef in those linemen.
