Jolly Good Fellow
I don't know what else Swinney could have done to get an honorable win, so blame Collins et al for Tech's performance. Swinney was into his 2's by the end of the half, into his 3's and 4's at the start of the 4th, and wound up using his punter as a
However, it wasn’t always this way. Go back through the last decade and understand it was Dabo who built this program slowly and steadily. But it was definitely under his guidance. What made him successful was an administration that was all in with him and his philosophy towards the program.If Georgia Tech had the budget to hire Clemson’s coaching staff what’s the score?
Dabo make over $9M per year. GC makes about $3M. Clemson has 9 coaches making $500k+ per year. Tech has 1.
You act like it’s a surprise that Clemson’s coaches are better and more seasoned than Tech’s.
Sure, if our coaches do the job we expect, we might be competitive in a few years, but the chance for us to give them something like they just gave us is decades away, if ever. That is more about Clemson than it is about us.What I saw was the No. 1s through the first half and the first drive and maybe the second in the second. Dabo was running up the score for whatever reason. As they say, "Karma is a bit**" and we can only hope this victory comes back to bite him in the future.
I totally disagree. Players are out of position.
Plenty of speed with Swilling and J. Thomas.
Still disagree. I believe Thomas was one in the 20 mph club.J. Thomas is slow. Has done nothing this year except follow WR’s into the end zone. Swilling has some speed but I don’t see him being some high end NFL player. Some of you must believe in Santa Claus if you believe there is some “scheme” for defensive players who aren’t as fast as the offensive player - Unless you sack the QB every play. Personally, I’m ready to see several DB’s find the bench, but I also understand Collins still has to play umpire between his guys and the holdovers. He’s doing a great job so far but I expect a big purge after this season, especially they way he uses the portal.
I agree completely....They passed the ball 13 times all game against the best team in college football and seemed to have run almost every play in the 2nd half...our OC calls terrible plays and forces plays that don't work...Well, the good news is that now that Gibbs and Sims and the rest of the team have seen what "real competition" is, then the rest of the season is going to be easy. RIght?
If we were getting better each week, it should have never been this bad (worst loss in ACC history). Our offensive play calling in the second half was a clear sign that our OC was in way over his head and he just wanted get the game over with as fast as possible instead of working on the passing game or maybe giving Gleason some snaps.
No one expected a win or it to be even close, but 73-7 is just pathetic, rebuild or no rebuild...
Two main things that bothered me with today’s game. One was the apparent half time speech by Collins where he just told everyone he loved them. Two, the second half performance by the team which showed no fight at all. Two may be related to one. It’s ok to get blown out by Clemson. Lots of teams will. But if you give up 50 in the first half then have some pride and fight back a little.
