Was our staff this big before?

Possibly. The only thing we know for sure is how NOT to bring in multiple 5*s a year: Do what we did for the past 11 years! :LOL:
Doing that godawful, shoulder-shrugging IIWII approach is a recipe for mediocrity.
No. It's more like do what we've done for the past 130 years. Since we've never brought in a single 5* player, let alone multiple 5* players. We were closer to signing two 5* players under Coach Johnson than we ever were under Gailey or previous coaches. If not for an under-aged recruit, Johnson would have the only 5* player in Tech history. Stop trying to build up CGC by crapping on the previous regime.

They have a narrative to maintain. :rolleyes:
Sorry @Milwaukee to make you start drinking so early. :D

Not trying to get in the middle of whatever argument this is but what does close to signing 2 5 stars mean?

So 5-star recruit Calvin Johnson wasn't a Yellow Jacket? It's like we didn't even play football before CPJ's arrival to some of you :rolleyes: We also won a national championship without CPJ as coach! And had a Heisman Trophy candidate too!

The previous coach (regime?) had some admirable moments and great victories but recruiting wasn't a strong point. I'm not going to apologize for having optimism that recruiting may improve now that we have a new Coach who appears to be better at it.

Stop falling all over yourself to protect CPJ. His record and accomplishments here speaks for itself.

Calvin wasn't a 5*. Most Tech fans know this.

I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm just telling you you're 100% wrong about Calvin signing as a 5* prospect.

no idea what I'm talking about? I simply asked for proof that Megatron's recruit rank changed from 4-stars to 5-stars after he left. That seems to only happen when the mutts poach guys from us.

I'm not going to look it up since I already know it to be fact. Not trying to be snarky, but I followed his recruiting closely, and 2 services changed him from 4 to 5 after he left GT. He signed and was recruited as a 4. I don't know what you're talking about when you mention pooping on coaches and what not. What in the hell are you even talking about?
