    Hopefully this means the UGAG offense will suck for the next 2-3 years until they replace him:cigar:

    Never, never, never follow a living legend as a college coach. It did not work for Bud Carson following Bobby Dodd, it did not work out for Ray Perkins following Bear Bryant, it did not work out for Hootie Ingram following Frank Howard, and it will not work out for Coach Fuente.

    I don't know why. There is not an overarching commonality to these coaches some were recruiting gurus, some were defensive specialists, some were offensive geniuses but all of them faced a sated and demanding fan base combined with usually subpar recruiting classes left over from the legend. I am sure some of you could think of exceptions to this rule. As I type this I am trying to think of that guy that replaced Woody Hayes seems like he was pretty successful at Ohio State. Perhaps the guy that replaced Darryl Royal at Texas. It is a tough row to hoe for sure. Poor old Ron Zook came in to replace Spurrier at Florida and was run out of town not long after unpacking the moving van. You always want to be the guy who come after the sucker who replaced the legend. Of course, sometimes even that does not work out witness Bill Curry following Ray Perkins.

    Following a legend can be rough. I’d hate to follow Dabo or Saban.

    He was a stud under Kendal Briles, not so much under Dana Holgerson...or before Kendal Briles at Houston. He can be good, but he better have a great OC coaching him otherwise he'll be just OK.

    Which poster is going to correct Calvin and let him know that Collins is just a car salesman and all that energy is just worthless hype?

    Recruiting related: Why do we almost never refer to our GLOBAL academic rankings when we talk about our elite academics?

    https://www.usnews.com/education/best-global-universities/engineering
    https://www.economist.com/whichmba/full-time-mba-ranking?page=2

    Eff talking about being one of the top schools in the country, let's start referring to GT academics as one of the ELITE in the world. Our engineering schools is top 20, our business school is top 25. Let's start differentiating ourselves even more, and you know CGC loves talking GT up...well, get on the elite GLOBAL sell, CGC!

    ...end rant. :)

    China has 4 of top ten engineering schools on that list. We need to take one of those slots for a whole lot of reasons.

    Good thing those schools don't have college football team for their fans to complain about STEM and calculus.

    It can be done but even the esteemed Coach Robinson was not as popular as Coach McKay who was a regular quote machine. When he coached at Tampa Bay as an expansion franchise, he was asked by a reporter about his team's "execution" Quote the Master: "I am all for it".

    It could have been mentioned in another thread, but what is the 404 to 305 blitz our coaches have been tweeting about?
