Attendance was dropping over CPJ's last few years as was recruiting. Even the great seasons of '09, '14, and '16 didn't result in any improvement in recruiting, else CPJ would've had a better QB to work with than Taquon Marshall.
Talk about revisionist history!
the REAL issue was that kids weren't flocking to GT to play the TO, dismal defenses (PJ churned thru DCs), and shrinking attendances. We'd become nationally irrelevant after 2014 and were viewed as having a gimmicky offense.
Bringing the TO back wouldn't fix any of those. And no, the current...
Frankly, he can take Long with him. I see no improvement and total regression in all phases of the offense since the decent 2.5-qtr start we had vs Clemson.
Sims has, bizarrely, gotten worse too. Take Weinke with him as well.
I recall fans here and elsewhere giving Sewak plenty of criticism but I always thought he was simply coaching what CPJ told him to do. I always thought that was why Sewak was never fired...because he was coaching the OL exactly how CPJ wanted it coached.
+1. From the playcalling, I told my GF that "it looks like we've given up and are just trying to get some reps for guys", and that was in the 3rd qtr. It was reminiscent of CPJ's last year, when we were down 21 pts in the 4th qtr with under 10 mins to go and death-marching.
Strange - it sounds like you're a bit down that "we were +3 in turnovers and had near double digit sacks".
When that happens, esp. against a ranked team, it's a cause for optimism and positivity rather than continued reservation.
Possibly a Corner Turned. It was the most complete game on both sides of the ball since ... ?
- It was encouraging to see that the Clemson-game defense wasn't a fluke.
- Loved seeing the TOs generated.
- Encouraging to see the offense make improvements throughout the entire game.
- I think...
