  1. Expectations for the 2021 season

    And it happened later. When Tech went to the 2004 Humanitarian Bowl in Boise it was the first time many (there were a lot of young men from South Georgia and Florida) of the players had seen snow. They were treated like kings by the bowl; it was the first time they had had two southern teams...
  2. NFL Draft by Team

    There's another reason. Tech still has a very young football team, especially since everybody got another year due to the disease. We didn't have that many people who wanted to forego another year of ball and try to go pro. We'll see going forward.
  3. Expectations for the 2021 season

    1. Dodd, like Paul, knew what he wanted and went after it. Prime example = Leon Hardeman. All 5'6" (with lifts) and 175 lbs of him. Not all that fast either. But he became an AA (he was drafted by the Colts but joined the US Army instead). Dodd saw what others didn't; i.e. that he was almost...
  4. Expectations for the 2021 season

    I don't expect much for the coming year. The reasons given above for improvement overlook that other teams in our division and league are going through the same process and have a lead on us. As I've said before, let's get to 4 wins and see what happens. That's a possibility by mid-season but we...
  5. Spring game thoughts

    I was one of the poor saps who went to the (I think) 2015 spring game. I have never been so cold and wet in my whole life. None of us in the stands were watching the game with any attention; we were all trying to get far enough under the overhangs in the East stands to keep out of the rain and...
  6. Spring game thoughts

    My favorite on this: Tech was playing LSU. The Tigers came out on Friday and did an hour of knocking. Then Tech took the field and played - wait for it - volleyball for 45 minutes. The LSU players weren't impressed. Then came the game. Here I'm paraphrasing an LSU player. "We were hitting them...
  7. Expectations for the 2021 season

    You're right and if Gibbs puts on that extra 10 (or, I'd advise, 15) lbs and learns to block, he'll get his chance. But … I think he's a shoe-in as a WR at the next level. But all these speculations are based on last year. I look forward to seeing how a year in the training program has helped him.
  8. Expectations for the 2021 season

    That won't happen. This is one of the reasons I suggested moving Gibbs. We need all of our good players on the field in places where they can contribute. But … Gibbs won't be moved, even though it would help his NFL prospects. Even if he bulks up another 20 lbs, he won't be the model RB the...
  9. Expectations for the 2021 season

    I'm going to risk a big flameout with this. When you look at Gibbs, who does he remind you of? I've heard a lot of answers to this one, but mine is … wait for it … Calvin Ridley. He's as talented as any of the recent crop of Bama WRs, arguably the best in the country in the last decade. Given...
  10. FSU Sets Up NIL Program

    I always thought FSZoo had a NIL program.
  11. A change in approach to coaching staffs/programs verbiage?

    I came under football coaches where such stuff was looked on as a childish distraction from the job at hand. Consequently, the less, the better, imho. But … this seems to be part of what you get with Collins. If he thinks he needs it to succeed, so be it. Oh, and all this ATL business was...
  12. Expectations for the 2021 season

    Eggsackley. No need to make this harder then it is, especially with THE SEASON OF DOOM, PART DEUX coming up. We could really use a season where we don't have to play seven games where we aren't favored to win. This is up to the AD. Get busy. NOW.
  13. Ahmarean brown has entered the transfer portal

    I think if James hadn't gotten hurt he would have taken the job and succeeded in it, but we'll never know. And I think the decision to implement new offensive schemes whether it led to wins or not was made before the season started. And our offense was pretty fair country football in 2018. The...
  14. Ahmarean brown has entered the transfer portal

    We were warned - right here, btw - about this business of promising to pattern offenses to use inherited personnel then not doing so by many Temple alums when we hired him. Needless to say, not everybody up there was glad to see hie back; but a substantial number were. And, yes, that's...
  15. Jalen Camp

    This is soooo stupid. It's like blaming a QB for an INT on a tipped ball. The person who made the INT was the D player, usually on a great play. About the only thing you can blame a WR for in these stats is an INT that comes from a drop. This is like errors in baseball. The whole idea stems not...
  16. Jalen Camp

    And he did it right too! Most people let their hips come off the bench. Like my old high school coach (he was our OL/DL coach, but he believed in weight training even back in the early 60s) used to say, "Son, this is not a back exercise!" Camp is pretty awesome. I wouldn't be surprised if a pro...

    No doubt this is true. However, Collins has a rep of trying to fit round pegs into squat holes until he can pound them into place or recruit square ones. Up at Temple he promised to form his offense to the personal available. He didn't. In short, I think this staff has a vision of what they...
  18. Ahmarean brown has entered the transfer portal

    He was in line to be WR #1 in 2019 when he got hurt. I think he would have had about the same number of receptions with either Paul or CDP (glad somebody came up with that; I never spell his name right) this year. But, yes, since the staff called his number, they get credit. It is too bad Camp...
  19. Ahmarean brown has entered the transfer portal

    The operative phrase in this is "not a lot". We should be doing everything mentioned in the post " a lot". We would be much more unpredictable and much harder to stop. But we probably won't since having Brown out there would make them work better. And he's gone.
  20. Antonneous Clayton

    I'm glad he decided he was ready to play again. Here's hoping he avoids his injury bugaboo and gets to show what he can do. He could be a real difference maker for Tech and I hope he is. Welcome back, Antonneus, and good luck from all of us.
