    Ordinarily I'd post this in the Swarm Lounge (and mods are free to move it there), but I thought this season of Last Chance U released today is actually relevant because it features Jay Jones at QB. For those unaware, Last Chance U is a Netflix documentary show where they follow a JUCO team throughout a season and do profiles on players who transferred in from big-time programs. I've only watched a little bit of the new season so far, but what they've said about Jay in his intro mimics CPJ's words from years ago:
    A little bit into episode 1 Jay starts talking about his recruitment and what went wrong with GT. Transferred due to concerns with not passing in the offense, taking too many hits, etc. It's an interesting look into a former player and I'm sure he'll talk about GT more throughout the season given the show's premise. It'll be particularly interesting when they hit the episode where they play Garden City who had Dedrick Mills at RB.

    I don’t understand how a guy that committed to play in our old offense would be surprised that you get hit every down as a QB and you have little opportunity to pass.

    All he had to do was watch one drive.

    Hahahaha I mean of course they were. They are going to sell to them that they will be the game changer. I think JT was the only one to make a slight change in CPJs scheme.

    Vad got crushed. Light went off & never came back on. Vad was CPJ’s version of Reggie Ball for Chan. I know he had JT, but CPJ suffered when Vad could not get it back. Changed the whole program.

    UNC hit hurt Vad, but CPJ scrapping the diamond after Duke(?) was the final in the coffin

    Notwithstanding the lack of honesty in that pitch I still can’t imagine falling for that.

    I don’t remember were we Jones’ only QB offer?

    Episode 4, around 44:00 mark, Mills has a great run!

    Vad didn’t understand that getting the 2 yards and lining up for 2nd down was fine. Was always trying to make plays behind the LOS. The least effective QB we had under CPJ other than Booker getting snaps against GW. And I was one of the guys shouting from the rooftops that he was the next big thing coming out of HS. Great kid. Just wasn’t the right offense for him.

    He had offers as an athlete from Bama, Auburn and Florida. Geoff Collins was his recruiter at UF. As a QB, yeah we were probably it, at least as far as P5 teams go.

    I wonder if they sell the linebacker recruits that they’ll tackle more?

    You mean that special play where two guys fit the same gap with no ball carrier in it?

    Yep, 5 secs before the snap you knew we were blitzing and the linebacker would run right into the blocker. 1 and 10 every time
