I read a lot of threads on various sites and one recurring theme relates to the coaching staff at Tech and how they're failing or not succeeding in getting Tech to the level where the fan base thinks it should be. Lots of criticisms as to scheme, recruiting, lack of success against the "big 4" and so on. As most of you are aware the majority of this recurring theme is directed at CPJ with some of the Tech fan base wanting him fired yesterday, now or tomorrow at the latest. Some are obsessed with the O scheme being the issue, some are obsessed with the lack of recruiting, some are obsessed with the lack of support from the "Hill" and some are simply obsessed with wanting to be the smartest guy on the 'net. So as I sit here and try to process all the various themes I find myself breaking down each area of obsession to try and grasp the disconnect in an effort to fully understand what I read. In any event here are my thoughts and ideas. 1. Coaching staff. CPJ has established a team that, for the most part, beats the teams they should beat and, for the most part, loses to teams that are better. Consistency is generally a good thing but, in this case, deprives a fan base of a realistic hope of pulling the upset. His job with the Offense this year has been, inconsistent, at best. Sewak has not developed the O line into the force I, and others, feel it should be. Some of that may have to do with injuries but it is what is it. ST are improved despite the injuries. Roof is doing a very good job with the D and would be better, again, except for the injuries on the back end. A wholesale change is not warranted and would do much more harm than good, in my opinion. 2. Recruiting As a whole this is an area that has been most disappointing to me. I'm not sure CPJ understood just how difficult it is to recruit at Tech. I'm not going to get into the reasons for this, that subject has been discussed and cussed, except to say it is a reality. However, we are seeing a '14 class that may be start of resolving this issue. 3. The Hill Academics are and will always be the top priority of the Administration. The GTAA does have the support of the Administration otherwise you'd not see the capital improvements that are ongoing. Does that support translate into expanding the curriculum or changing the admission standards? Not too date and I'm not sure it will ever happen. If I were asked if I am happy with the direction of the program I would have to say, yes. I if were asked if I were satisfied with the direction of the program I would have to say, no. Anyway just my thoughts.
