  1. General News about Key and his Staff

    I am told the Clemson staff is falling all over themselves with his offense. Keeps it all in his head and keeps it simple. A major goal is to greatly increase the 20-yard+ plays and with the Clemson running backs a lot of two-back backfield even when they are slinging it.
  2. NIL, Transfers, and Stratospheric Salaries. What Is the Future of GT Football and College Football in General?

    Swinney "adjusted" his top assistants and one such adjustment was for $70,000. Another for $50,000. No telling where they would go without a board of trustees to oversee it. On the other hand, out-of-state appliications have skyrocketed as well.
  3. Geoff Collins worst GT coach of all time

    before that he was hanging around Clemson. Said he had coaching offers but was going to take it easy for a spell. I thought that was what he did on The Flats.
  4. Butt Kicker

    Who's complaining? Frankly the guy can miss every point after and I don't care. It's just the NFL and not college, where real football is played. (Point of fact: eliminate the complaints and you done done in the board.)
  5. Butt Kicker

    Maybe so, but he has always had that extra point misfire. Not a lot but enoujgh so that it can become an adventure. Maybe he kickis it so low,. Anf not to bring Johnson into it, but the guy was on campus maybe two days and Johnson said he was going to play on Sunday. Just as long as I can...
  6. Butt Kicker

    And yet with all the kicking glory, he misses easy extra points. Go figure,
  7. Today’s the day for Paul Johnson and Ralph Friedgen

    People forget if they ever knew but Johnson was the Hawaii OC and coached the run and shoot offense. And won a maj or Georgia Southern game to come from about five TDs down by throwing the ball on every down.
  8. GT Football Who is the GOAT

    Not to pick a fight, but every year some coach somewhere will say exactly the same thing.
  9. Today’s the day for Paul Johnson and Ralph Friedgen

    If reports of his scorched earth, burn Athens to the ground halftime talk in his first Georgfa game -- Tech down 28-12 at half I think -- can be believed, he always took Georgia seriously. It was that unlike some fans he knew it was one game among 12. But he lit into them and Tech was leading...
  10. GT Football Who is the GOAT

    This isn't a knock on Castleberry, but it strikes me that never has so much been made by so many about a player that not on of us ever saw play.
  11. Today’s the day for Paul Johnson and Ralph Friedgen

    We actually got a winner in Collins. It was just that he beat himself. What a horrendeous hire that was, and I think he has gotten off light with the board.
  12. Today’s the day for Paul Johnson and Ralph Friedgen

    I'd go for the unlikely statue, but regardless of all that Tech has not had a coach since Dodd that could think and improvise on the fly and outgun the opposition by spotting one offensive or defensive player cheating up to the line. I think it was against Middle Tennessee that he started a...
  13. Is this our best coaching staff of all time?

    Well, there is the fact that Bobby Dodd had Frank Broyles and Ray Graves on his staff at the same time. One won championships at Flolrida and the other at Arkansas. Give me a call when we place two assistants in such positions. Look, you ain't gotta have the "greatest of all time" you know. We...
  14. Stansbury hired at NCSU

    That's like saying Tojo was a a good general, outside of that atomic bomb thing,
  15. HC Candidate/Rumors/Info Thread

    Don't know about Key, but if we screw this one up and hire a 62-year-old man with a mediocre lifetime w-l record, then turn Grant Field into student parking. It is stupid that he might even be considered.
  16. HC Candidate/Rumors/Info Thread

    Well, if he is he had better be right because he is our last chance for competency in our football program. Fail here and we are headed for club football.
  17. #GTvsUNC Postgame GT 21 - UNC 17

    Clemson says thanks a lot, Tech. Now Clemson can pound UNC -- it won't, but it could -- and it means less to the playoff committee than had UNC came into the game with just just the one loss. I am of a scrambled mind concerning a head coach because this is a hire they have to get right, but this...
  18. Option Football

    It was no secret with Johnson that he often spent the first half surveying the landscape, and the second half getting serious. There was a Navy website that warned us: get ready for some really boring first half football. And nobody was ever better than Johnson in reading and predicting...
  19. How Important is Recruiting?

    Well, I dunno, We won world war using recruits who could barely hold a rifle. The difference in a 3 and 5-star is one game witnesssed by a scout. And Johnson's reliance on 3's worked fine up up to the QB slot, where it all fell apart.
  20. How Important is Recruiting?

    Speaking of numbers that add up but don't make sense -- Calvin Johnson was the No. 1 prospect in his class from the get-go; forget the recrujting servifces -- Ray Guy has died. Guy was maybe the best punter who ever kicked the ball, even though he averaged only about 43 yards a kick. There is...
