Former OT and O-line specialist. More help for the OL, and that's good great news!

We certainly won’t be able to point to a lack of coaching / teaching ability this upcoming season. I am hopeful the staff changes are going to shore up our Offensive woes and allow our D to get more attention.

I was already aggressively positive about this season so won’t up my prediction for record but feel more confident with it as we get closer to kickoff which is a pretty great feeling!

IDGAF what he'll do here as long as he's not the #get-bak coach. This is a good sign. Every program that wins does this. Glad we're doing winning things.

I'm glad to hear it. But it makes me wonder ... is this Geoff calling the shots (and why didn't he make these decisions sooner?) or someone else?

Correct me if I am wrong. I know nothing about how it played out but there are two scenarios at play here...if he asked for the help and could justify it, give it to him. You (as a manager) want to provide resources and remove excuses. That's your job. Makes it easier to hire the next guys when and if necessary.

If you (again as his manager) had to step in and to tell him what to do/who to hire, you are already looking for the next guy. You can't do your job and a subordinate's job too. If someone needs that much intervention then they are not likely to make it (almost impossible from my experience).

WTBS, I hope the guy is undefeated this year..purely for selfish reasons. I ain't got many of these (FB seasons) left in me so I want them all to be good. I want to attend another NC championship game again and I have no problem at all if it is this year.

A lot of these hires are people that the staff have worked with before—some of whom Collins has worked with. One is a Long contact. If it’s being forced on Collins, it’s an big coincidence that the analysts share so much work history with the staff.

I don't doubt that for many of the hires, but the one exception might be Chip Long. The two have radically different approaches in relating to players, and Long was hired in the wake of Collins being called on the carpet by Stansbury. Hevesy, however, worked with Collins at MSU.

When cgc was hired he spent his $ on his group, but did not have $ to keep Andy Mac on even though he stayed thru signing day. He felt he would get a contract (lots of experience, 3 year MTSU head coach , knows players, knows recruiting). Tstan let cgc quickly hire """his""" guys.

How will we know if cgc wised up? Ditto Tstan? .

We have a situation where cgc has staff on offense that looks like they dont need his supervision.

The qb coach, recruiting guy, the analyst additions give us the appearance of a well staffed p5 program.

I think that cgc better have a defense that has some semblance of "Meyhem". Just not looking incompetent won't get it.

Same thought.
This was my first thought as well. Second thought "I don't give a crap" Whatever it takes to help this team win this year. We come up with some kind of a winning coach formula that works, I am OK creating a brand new coaching model. what ever works, I dont care what it looks like.

2 get back coaches per coach? I will get behind it.
QB Sneak every play if it lets us win. I just dont care. I just want to win

I think , maybe, that TStan has (finally) figured out that CGC is "big picture" guy, but not much on the details that are so crucial getting wins for the program.
CGC is supposed to be helping on the defensive backfield. Has anyone heard anything from him , other coaches, or players on EXACTLY what he is doing ?
I know I would like to read or hear about- from anyone- a technique, a drill , a scheme, etc, that he is contributing to the defense.
