Tony Elliott has my vote.
You couldn't be more wrong. You're just upset because pj quit.I said it above, so I'll say it again: we need to hire Bohannon and right now.
The other candidates will either be unable to make use of the players we now have - and we've got some good ones - or be too expensive. First, if we hire someone who will come in and try to use players recruited for a system offense to run an O premised on having a few "playmakers", we will be looking at multiple years of disastrous seasons. I keep hearing about "football irrelevancy" here; have a string of 3 - 9 years and see where we end up. We have been able to keep the program steady and get to great heights occasionally largely because we have been recruited for a system O that allows us to specialize our recruiting so that we get players we can use effectively. Someone like Malzahn or Wisenhunt or Satterfield would be lost at Tech and unable to get the players they need to run their programs. Bohannon could step right in without a hiccup.
Second, we could get him for a decent price. We need every extra penny for program development now. Someone like Malzahn would be another (and less successful) Paul Hewitt.
This is, as some above have said, a big decision, especially with recruiting in a sensitive stage. Hire Bohannon (provided he'd leave KSU, of course) and we'll get the continuity we need. Bring in a "disruptor" and we'll end up the Sears-Roebuck of college football.
Yea ; Chad Morris the originator of Clemson's prolific offense is about to get run out of Arkansas in his first year; Elliott whuld be nothing but a clone of this; It goes back to the Gimmies and Joes Gt and Arkansas will never be able to recruit like Clemson so this offense means nothingI mean Chad Morris's oozing success just screams Elliot would make a great hire too.
This is the reason they cite:
Elliott graduated from Clemson in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering and a team-high 3.55 GPA, a profile which certainly fits Georgia Tech’s culture.
Sounds like a done deal to me
