    So it looks like Todd Stansbury continues to ramble along with an 89% approval rating. :D

    My favorites were Satterfield and Monken but thought Collins, Brown, and a few others would be good choices.

    Now he just needs to surround himself with a quality staff. CPJ has left a strong foundation for Collins. IMO no need for a step back at all, I have high expectations.

    I personally would have preferred Monken but ... I understand the reason for Collins and based on his background, will probably be a great fit. I just HOPE ... that he doesn't engage in enough gimmicky stuff to be perceived as the GT reincarnation of Butch Jones.

    I hope he doesn't talk during his press conference about building the GT program brick by brick;) I'll start having Botch Jones flashbacks:wacky:

    My only problem with the new coach is he can't spell Jeff.

    Shouldn't he have his mother to blame for that?

    Yeah, I concluded pretty quickly that the pressure against the option foundation was too strong.

    CGC at least checks all the boxes that I'd look for, so I'm as happy as could be without it being a cpj guy.

    I'm happy. I think it's a very good hire, but falls just short of the great hire. Like the GT connection, the energy, recruiting, defense background with good results. A bit of HC experience. Lots of things to like. I think it really lacks the standout quality that would make this a great hire (like a longer track record of winning as head coach, or more extensive recruiting ties to the ACC, etc), but all in all I'm very pleased with the hire. Time to fill out the staff and get to work. Very excited to see how things change under the new staff.

    Of course we'll have to see how it plays out, but I'm happy with the hire. Excited for the new beginning and to see someone bring some energy to the program.

    *Don't read this post as a dig against CPJ. I was looking forward to seeing what he and CNW had in store for next year. But excited about the energy and excitement CGC seems to bring.

    Champions of Life. Leadership Reps. Brick by Brick. I won't lie ... he might be a good coach ... but he will lose the fanbase fast if he does that nonsense. Tech fans are mostly conservative.

    Would've preferred Monken or Bohannon, someone to build on the CPJ offense -- and yes, tweak it some, do some pistol- and shotgun series from it -- but realized I was hoping against hope for that. That said, really glad that Whisenhunt wasn't selected. Satterfield would've been fine. At least Collins won't be coming to Tech blind as to the academic realities, he has a little history here, and he's had success as a coordinator and, albeit limited, as a head coach. Probably about the realistic best Tech could do, if not looking to the CPJ coaching tree. Not excited about the hire like I was when PJ was brought in, but at least I'm not disappointed.

    Wouldn't bother me in the least if Collins would consider Matt Canada for the OC job -- there's a guy with a mind for offense. Or, Bob Stitt, who just took the OC job at Texas State after a year as an analyst at Ok State, following three years as HC at Montana and a long, very successful run as HC at Colorado School of the Mines. Here's hoping Collins doesn't settle for some generic "college offense" offensive coordinator; I don't expect a great choice, but here's hoping I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Defense? Would love to CNW and assistants retained, but again -- not feeling optimistic about that. C'est la vie.

    This is a great opportunity to excite the fan base with new uniforms.
