    I was not going to acknowledge the hire until a separate thread was posted.

    I have a feeling a lot of southeastern schools are not happy that they will no longer have built-in narratives to use against GT on the trail.

    They still have the big one. But we finally get to put that to the test. Hopefully having people that had to do it will help with that narrative.

    No more Coach Brian Gregory. No more Bud Peterson. No more Coach Paul Johnson. No more Russell. Hiring coaches from Alabama. What a brave new world!

    I almost wonder if they’ll still push the option narrative to see if they can. If enough people repeat the same lie, they can probably fool a few recruits; even smart people can be susceptible to this.

    Why? they will have the truths and half truths.
    Limited majors.....you really want to study engineering when you can watch grass grow and call it a degree?
    Atlanta......big city, lots of crime.
    You want to play in a stadium that sells half their tickets to their biggest rival
    No girls at Tech.....and the ones that are there are nerds.
    You really want to play school?
    and if all else fails........
    Calculus!

    You'd be surprised how knowledgeable recruits are.

    They have played each other, attended camps together, talk, share info on schools, follow recruiting, and recruit each other, both current and past recruits. Highschool recruiting is almost it's own culture. Not to mention their coaches.

    Formerly, elsewhere "GTjay"

    I wanted to click "like", animal, but really I just need to say, "true". I don't have to like it to know it is true.

    There are PLENTY of negative recruiting angles left against us, but I am hoping that somehow this new group of coaches can turn all of that on its head and make what was previously used as "negs" against us as "positives" for the recruits that can handle (and would like to handle) academic rigor leading to a 1st class degree.

    Since several of our new coaches actually got out of Tech, that SHOULD tell recruits that the academics should not be a negative.

    Not sure how accurate the google search was, by giving me, a listing of 400k. under Brent Key, salary at Ga. Tech. Didn’t do a Bing or other search engines, since it’s probably too early for accuracy-more speculative.

    Key @Ala.:
    2016, 350k
    2017, 400k
    2018, 490k(per USA Today). Title: OL Coach.

    One might speculate, he is making a minimum of 500k per year. In the least?

    Can't wait for spring practice to begin. I wonder if any 4 or 5 star linemen will come our way before signing day? 3 or 4 star would be nice.
