Jolly Good Fellow
Pitt's 2nd drive also should have been punted away but the refs called a bad roughing the passer call and gave them an automatic first down to continue the drive
You mentioned facts in your first sentence, then followed with pure opinion.
Again, no one is saying we should be putting up 40 per game. My point is that questions and concerns should be expected when we've scored 30 points in 2 of 22 games and Temple scored 30 points in less than 45% of its games with P'Nut. Those are facts BTW.
See above. You ignored those facts from my previous post.true freshman starting at QB behind the worst returning Oline in college football (they have been better this year, but are still not close to what we need in pass pro) all while our best two weapons on offense have missed significant time with injuries.
Talking about the OL. Haven’t looked at the grades but I’m fairly confident we would fall in the bottoms half of the ACC in OL play.We are better than we were last year, but still nowhere near the top half of the ACC there.
This is also fact. Gibbs and Brown have missed significant time. They are also our biggest home run threats. Those aren’t debatable.Having a guy like Gibbs allows you to cover some of those deficiencies, but he and Brown (our other homerun threat) being out for a large part of the season is more impactful to a GT than most other teams as we transition out of our old offense.
Lol CDP was criticized early in the year for not utilizing Brown, but now your using Brown missing games as an excuse for CDP. That’s silly reasoning.See above. You ignored those facts from my previous post.
I know it’s late, but if you’re going to beat the same dead horse, might want to at least think before you post.
And to say these are opinions is a stretch as well.

You could say it’s opinion that losing them doesn’t hurt us more than most other teams, but that’s the only “opinion” leg you have to stand on.
So my point stands, you blatantly ignore all the evidence that points to why we might be bad on offense.
I don’t care what he did at Temple. I don’t know anything about the players he had. I do know what he inherited here and how hat has hampered much of what he wants to do.
If the offense sucks next year, that’s another story (assuming Sims stays healthy and the OL isn’t completely depleted).
No. We should expect a 6-6 or 7-5 type year. With the pieces we have returning and transfers we should be a much better team than this year.Is next year also a developmental year? Genuinely curious as to when we can expect to be out of the developmental phase and into winning more than we lose.
Agreed we need studs on defense. But I can equally say we need a clutch WR that flat out go get the ball. Our receivers are getting better but we need them to make miraculous catches and none can do that currently.Gibbs is a difference maker and Sims will be. Defense you are 100% right
Your last sentence exactly right on!!This.
It was terribly frustrating watching their little dude scamper about so much but overall I was encouraged by our D's ability to hold them out of the end zone and put some good pressure on the QB. Recruits, transfers, and further development gives me hope for next year. And that's what this game was, development for next year.
This is a really hard game to judge. Odds were stacked against us from a short week, finals, lots of players out, then as the refs that should be fired
However reality is , I'm still convinced one of our coordinators needs to go, mostly convinced it's thacker. Seeing way too many issues on D that aren't improving
I really miss 7-8 win seasons, hopefully next year . Just don't know how much more our fan base can take of these 3 win seasons
CGC will have to have his players figured out next year! And Tech needs to win 7 to show good development. 6 wins would be just ok.Is next year also a developmental year? Genuinely curious as to when we can expect to be out of the developmental phase and into winning more than we lose.
What does the term “mis fit” mean? I read in an AJC article where CGC used that term several times in describing how a guys whose previous best game was 69 yds ran for 240+ against us last night. Is that code or a nice way to say “blown assignment”? The term sounds like it means we were in a bad defensive alignment, however on the last touchdown run he says they were in a good call and one guy “misfit” it. He also said that we had one guy slip at the “point of attack” on the first run but that is BS. Our safety came up and took a terrible angle and the guy went right by him. I support Collins because he’s our coach, but I’m tired of excuses and half truths. For my money, just say what the case really is and quit trying to make excuses or (badly) try to cover up mistakes. You can do that w/o throwing our athletes under the bus.
Lather rinse and repeat, first don't tell me about 3 games in 13 days that crap is hog wash, regular schedule you play 3 games in 15 days. If you want to say it hurt practice this week cause our players had finals i'll buy that as a better excuse. And to keep saying they had a Top 4 defense is hogwash every loss we have they all have not been a top 4 defense. Maybe it could be a weak OC something you need to look as fast before spring practice . And remember excuses won't work after this year.Post game presser is up. Coaching looking teary eyed angry and emotional.
The weakness on offense is the OL. Surely you could see that last night if you know anything about football. We have a good OL coach, so contrary to your assertion, it's not coaching.Maybe it could be a weak OC something you need to look as fast before spring practice . And remember excuses won't work after this year.
Yes, “misfit” we were not fitting our run. On the last run, either Jackson was wrong or there should’ve been a safety filling that lane.
No, the first run Jackson took on the block square up instead of on his inside shoulder giving the RB two-way go. If he stays on the inside shoulder he spills the ball the unaccounted for safety it’s a minimal gain (we hope)
So I’m not sure what excuses or non truth are
He also said that we had one guy slip at the “point of attack” on the first run but that is BS. Our safety came up and took a terrible angle and the guy went right by him. I support Collins because he’s our coach, but I’m tired of excuses and half truths.
I’ve said we aren’t a good offense. You continue to ignore the fact of the severe liabilities we have on that side of the ball.Lol CDP was criticized early in the year for not utilizing Brown, but now your using Brown missing games as an excuse for CDP. That’s silly reasoning.
For the 100th time tonight, no one is arguing that we should be a great offense, but we play against bad teams in the ACC and outside of Duke and Louisville this year, we’re not scoring.
16 against FSU, 20 against Syracuse, 21 against UCF, 13 against NC State. Among other teams, that’s the fewest amount of points scored against FSU and NC State and the 2nd fewest against Syracuse and UCF. We also scored the fewest points against Clemson for an FBS team.
Combine that with another below average night against Pitt and you’re going to get questions and concerns, which are warranted given both the OC’s production at GT and his production as an FBS OC.
