Nice post…An interesting take Midtown. Down near the bottom of the comments, was one that I thought was spot on. Paraphrasing here but the poster basically said that during the press conference for Signing Day, Geoff kept his head down as though he was "beaten down". The poster followed that up by observing that the Atlanta media has been merciless. Further, he observed that as fans little more can be accomplished by continually denigrating the man, though God knows, he bought a lot of this on himself. That said, I agree that there is little point (I am including myself here) in continually belittling him for a number of reasons: for one, redemption is a story as old as athletics, he just might have a new chapter to add. Secondly, these things can turn around on a dime, not saying it will, saying it might. Third, how many of us brought into the hype and hoopla? I know I did. Let's see how next year plays out. We may be in for a pleasant surprise...or more of the same in which case the problem of what to do about Geoff will take its natural course.
I could kick myself, but olde CGC is starting to get me cautiously optimistic with his new coaches, signings, portal escapades and focus on wining.
I’ve gotten past my disillusionment and have had fun with the signing day results and am intrigued to see this upcoming year at BDS….of course I always am!
Hope springs eternal ...But the people on this site who claim to be experts on the “transition” suggest we are at least two more years away from having a winning team.
I get excited too about the recruits and transfers until I realize most of them won’t see the field any time soon and those who do will probably be part of a four win season.
I have started taking very seriously the Collins supporters around here who have continually said it’s a 7 year transition. And, by the way, many of them don’t count 2020. So 2026 is the earliest we see the really big payoff of the Collins hire.
