    He would have been a great fit at B-Back. He's getting academic recognition at Nebraska and is proving to be really good back. Tennessee has to be kicking themselves for pulling his schollie.
    This is not an attack on GT recruiting...just wishing we could have pulled him in.

    Pretty drunk, but did he just do an excess spin move for no reason? Or am I imagining that?

    He had no desire to come here.

    I know but like I stated, this is not an attack on our recruiting. As I watched games or highlights of games from this weekend, I was struck by how many names I recognized that had some relation to GT football. Tre Jackson, Antonio Crawford and Imani Cross just to name a few. BTW, Antonio Crawford sure looked good for Miami.

    Also, I think this actually bodes well for GT. There are a lot of players that are performing well for their teams that received their first offer from GT. The myth that CPJ doesn't know how to evaluate talent is just that, a myth. We just need to have better "closers" on staff. And with the recent recruiting changes, I think that we do have a few good "closers" on board now. We just have to win some games to let potential recruits know that we mean business.

    CPJ has a great eye for talent...as you said we have to do a better job of landing those guys.

    Not to open up a can but... This has always concerned me with regards to recruiting in general. I won't mention the name but I asked a very reliable source with direct ties to the coaching staff what he felt was the reasons in recruiting not being better than it is. He said it was a number of things including we are not in the SEC, the size of our stadium, Academic challenges, and he said the offense doesn't appeal to some.

    IMO there is one thing that trumps all in recruiting: winning. If Tech can have back to back 9, 10 win seasons, I think recruiting will continue to improve.

    That's probably why a lot of schools use us as a pseudo-recruiting service and try to poach our guys late. I'm only half-kidding I think.

    Nebraska does not run flexbone 90% of the time... They mix in shotgun, pistol, and i-form.

    As a matter of fact they don't run flexbone at all. Yes they run and run alot. However, their offense tends to center around 1 or 2 backs at most. Whereas our offense centers around 4 if you include the qb's carries as a backer.
