    Interesting hypothesis but I believe the coaches play the athletes that prove themselves in practice and in the games. I favor the idea that they are more likely to play the younger guys they recruited if they were the better player. Which has me wondering about the young talent in the...

    Should the Fire Geoff Collins thread be locked?

    This. And folks question why the thread should be locked?

    2022 Schedule??

    I respect your optimism and recollection of the season last year. As I read through your post, I thought what a damning comment on coaching. You detailed to me the reasons of discontent with this coaching staff. All phases of the game led to defeat, the offense, defense and special teams. I...

    2022 Schedule??

    In years past, this would not look like a tough schedule. It should be that the only for sure loss would be to the defending national champions. And in years past, as a fan, I always believed there was a chance of an upset. Next year, let's get Clemson to overlook Tech and have a miserable...

    What Was The Best Part of The 2020-21 Football Season?

    The highlight of the season was the win over UNC. Got to go with my sons and was the only game Tech played well.

    Getting Specific about Improvement

    Something Specific that drives me crazy in the defensive backfield is not turning and finding the ball. When your receiver turns to look, what is happening? Get your head turned. Less likely pass interference will be called. Especially in zone coverage. Refs do not call having a hand on a...

    Fire Geoff Collins

    ibeebalin, This post is not in response to yours. This post is about noting you did in game video analysis a while back. Very informative, especially things like linebacker and defensive linemen gap fills. Where players made good plays and where they "not so much". Any chance during the...

    Nothing for me will change. I will continue to do the same things I always have. Treat my friends that are georgia alum with respect. Ignore the media hype. Listen to Uncle Lou after a dawg loss. Life is good.

    Poll: What do you hope to see next season?

    How do I think next season will go? 2019 was disappointing, especially since the team looked so poorly coached. 2020 was Covid and so strange going to a game with masks. Not disappointing just supremely strange. I was at the Clemson game and I have not seen a worse Tech team performance...

    Why is Thacker still employed?

    I agree that finding a DC to accept a position at this time is problematic. Having CGC as the de facto DC might work well during practices and recruiting, but his inability to handle in game management is questionable and would only be more taxed if trying to handle the DC job during a close...

    Fire Geoff Collins

    Interesting question. I pondered this as well. A job at Tech is likely a one year gig right now with Collins' seat very hot.

    🔥🔥🔥 Good Take on our Current Challenges

    No matter what the experience on the offensive line, the data showed from this article, the offensive line has a long way to go no matter who is in there. Glad the author did not put names next to the grades. Key needs to get his act together this off season and coach these kids up. "Here are...

    GT hires Chip Long as new OC/QBs Coach

    Tech ended up next to last in both total offense and defense last year. Hard not to improve on the results if you are a new OC coming in. Does Long have the chops to develop players, especially the QBs? Can he install an offense that...

    Staff Changes

    In your opinion, what year is this for CGC. Can't be 0. Do you give him a pass on his first year? And make this year 1? I agree last year was unlike any other but the pandemic affected every college team not just CGC.

    Fire Geoff Collins

    Talking about losing the fanbase. According to my group, he has lost the 1970s and 1980s Tech graduates. The last two embarrassing losses were the straws that broke the camels back.
