    We may have a different definition of bad. Pitt is 6-3, tied for second in the Coastal. Beat UCF after 27 straight regular season wins, and only lost at top ten PSU 17-13.

    I’m not sayin Pitt is good, but they’ve already clinched their bowl game. So to say their bad is doing them a disservice.

    According to the 2019 roster on the official GT site there are now 45 people associated with Football including coaches and staff. Now, this list appears to include office staff as well. Conversely, the Duke website is harder to read. There are 32 people under the football heading, but they have entire other departments listed that support ALL sports, not just football. Some of those departments list specific people assigned to football. In all, there are the 32 people assigned under football and a minimum of 50 more, likely closer to 70, that support football operations at Duke. That's just insane.

    This looks similar to what is on the GT site. Roughly 45 total positions. Now go look at the Duke site and see how theirs is set up. They have a far better system in place, likely because of the national phenomenon that is Duke Basketball. They just finally decided to spend real money on football....

    They decided to spend money on football when they hired Cutcliffe. Anthony Dilweg, a former QB , has been very successful in the RTP area. He got a bunch of his cohorts together and they raised a lot of money for FB. They really upgraded the stadium. Too bad nobody comes to the games.
    We desperately need to upgrade our stadium. Seat backs, better concession area and bath rooms.

    Where are you seeing 50-70 more people? All I see is the 32 listed under football.

    Read my entire post, then go back and look at their organization. A LOT of other support services are broken out differently.

    Edit to add that it appears they leverage their entire AA way better than we do ours, which is probably a difference maker.

    Edited again to add that they compete in 21 sports to our 14, allowing for some of the extra staff, but I am not sure how much additional support staff some of those smaller sports really require. I was just impressed with the sheer numbers of their AA and how it's laid out.

    I did, and I assume you are talking about people listed under headings like:

    Academic Services, Athletic Medicine, Athletic Facilities, Administration, Compliance, Digital Media, etc.? If that is what you are talking about, maybe you need to take a gander at our staff page, because I count 70-100 more people on staff, besides those listed under football, that contribute to the football program in some way also for us.


    I would assume the people under these categories at GT contribute to football:

    Executive Staff, A-T Fund, Brand and Ideation, Business, Broadcasting, Communications and PR, Compliance, Equipment, Facilities and Event Operations, GT IMG Sports Marketing, Innovation, Marketing and Fan Experience, Player Development, Sports Medicine, Student Services, Total Person Program/Letterwinners Club.

    I did. We have some additional but a lot of ours are listed twice. Lew Caralla is I know on there twice in different areas. Also, I was not countine special events, ticketing, etc, but rather focusing on equipment, brand, sports medicine, player development, etc.

    I only saw about 6-7 people listed twice. And just in those type categories you listed I have a rough count of 60-70 additional staff for GT. Say take away 10 duplicates and that's 50-60 support staff. Plus we have 12-13 more than Duke listed on football staff... so seems to me that it's about even.

    As a native of Alabama, I can say with certainty that both Auburn and Alabama have provided incentives to players. Both were before the current regimes of Gus and Nick. I’m sure it goes on today, just less overtly.

    Don't know if I feel like reading this whole thread because I can just see how this thread is going to go. I did like when CPJ said (I am paraphrasing) "if me leaving is what it takes for them to get more money, then good for the program." He seems to be a pretty good GT guy to me. Him saying it is unacceptable for GT to be 13 of 14 in budget is exactly right. I believe in TStan having a plan to fix that.

    Thanks coach for sharing that information in item #1 above publicly while our basketball program is appealing an NCAA penalty imposed on us. I am sure they will take your gesture of goodwill into consideration while ruling on our appeal.

    Lived in Bama myself since 1988 and my mom and dad were both born and raised in Bama - I agree with you about previous administrations. And, as I said, there are still alums that pay players in isolated situations.

    BUT, I disagree with you that sa(t)an has to cheat, and I believe he is in total control of the program, so I would be extremely surprised if he allows any overt cheating since he can get the players (based on NFL readiness he provides) without having to cheat. At Auburn, even under Malzaun, they are still fighting an uphill battle, and Louder and his ilk cannot be controlled.

    I don't know about a big year.
    But if PJ had turned the O over to Graham, with these backs ... coulda been real fun.
    And our D the second half of last year, save for the Georgia game, was getting better and better.
