    You really think GT is going to pay for coordinators the way Clemson does?

    I do not know what we are going to pay CGC. Coach Venables makes 1.7 mil and Tony Elliott makes 800k (so does their other co coord).

    We can not afford that, but Clemson was not paying that either at first. If we want to be serious about football, we need to pay both of and DC in the 900k+ range in my opinion.

    The teams investing the most in football are performing the best. If we continue to be cheap, we should expect to not succeed. TStan seems to understand we are not spending at the level we need to.

    18 - At end of third quarter we had 100 yds and zero offensive points and uga had 45 points. Uga was merciful. How can it get worse? Uga the dog runs out and takes a dump at mid field.? Uga spends twice what we do. 28 years ago Duke was a laughing stock and we were national champ .

    I give both the coachesn appreciation for the past accplishments and the NEW ENERGY for future accomplishment.

    I would rather win with 150 yards of O, than lose with 700 yards of O.

    We are, however, spending at the level we support financially. It's not like we're banking extra cash each year with the money we save being cheap. If we want TStan spending, then we need to get revenue streaming in.

    Isn’t that part of the capital campaign though? He’s trying to make us all stakeholders of GT growth.

    I think a certain former coach put it more colorfully. "Recruiting is like shaving; if you don't do it everyday you look like a bum."

    No. And that's what worries me. The 2020 initiative funds facility upgrades and recruiting help, but it does not include specific funds for upping our coaches pay. There is some room under sports specific operations, but by and large the bulk of the money in the initiative will be for facilities.

    This may be true, but how is every other school in acc but wake spending more than us. Are they all profligate? Are we simply cheap skates (well this is ga tech, so yes).

    We are a fairly small fanbase that doesn't give like we should. It will continue to cripple us until we make a change in our giving habits.

    I hope the AA will let him speak at AA regional meetings. Houston would raise money just to beat

    I hope this guy does what brilles did- went to all the midsize towns and cast his vision. Invited alumn and hs coaches. Oh I see the alumni rolls are confidential and not available to gtaa.

    Is that to avoid NCAA violations?

    What's the saying? Offense sells tickets, defense wins championships.

    And folks they are spending ~2X what we are spending. When Dabo took over we were much closer in our spend. Our AD cut our budget and Clemson’s doubled down. This has to change or Geoff will be constrained on what he can accomplish.

    Oh, is this the “we don’t have money so we’re doomed to failure” thread? I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere. I was looking for the “our academics are too hard so we’re doomed to failure” thread.
