    Doesn't matter. Key is to get the ATL in the background.

    I do believe Tech is on an upward trajectory. I live in Tallahassee, and trust me, the idiot FSU hired is going to run them further in the ditch

    Do you reckon there's an opportunity to go after some FSU targets in recruiting?

    I prefer to let Bama do the legwork and we scoop them up.

    This is great stuff from the recruiting staff. If we back it up with some energy and fire and actually protect Atlanta, watch out!

    My two favorite teams are TECH and whoever's playing Georgia.
    Yeah, that hire surprised me, too...Reminds me of the Miami hire in 2006 when they foolishly fired Larry Coker. Miami has been down every since...

    Exactly. Probably cheapens the entire thing for the recruits. We should’ve scrapped the idea before we ever started. :lolfacepalm:

    You probably should have used spell check before posting this :-)

    Glad you Dodd guys are back in the mix. I met him several times as a kid. Legend. Let’s do this.

    Even if we can't recruit some of their prospects, any chance we can recruit some of their coeds?

    I think Larry Coker's firing was the first time a national championship winner was fired for performance (not due to rules violations). That said, he couldn't recruit like Butch and after a few years it showed.

    Mack Brown at Texas, or did he retire? Les Miles? Chizik?

    Not saying what they did or did not do. Just thought you brought up an interesting question.

    Can't wait to see Mack Brown wandering aimlessly about the sidelines confused as to how college football has passed him by. I hope UNC sinks to Connecticut level of college football

    They have talent right now, they just got rocked by injuries in 2017 and Fedora lost the team this year. If Mack makes the right hires, they’ll be ok, but he seems to be hiring people he worked with when he was coaching, so it’s a bunch of people the game has passed by. We’ll see, but I hope they end up stinking out loud too.
