    Gotta have a lead late in order to make use of the death march correctly.

    On top of all the above, recruiting at Clemson vs recruiting at GT are two entirely different animals.

    Yes, was 2007 a very weird "all the stars aligned" moment, or can it be duplicated and replicated? I will be very surprised if CGC can overcome the negatives to obtain a top 30 class, and even MORE surprised if he can do it in back to back years. I hope I am surprised.

    I doubt we have the $$$ to make that sort of jump. I'd look for incremental increases. Last figure I saw was that our assistants made around $2.8 million. If we get that up around $3.5 million, I think that shows an added commitment to making this work.

    I really hope this is part of the AD's plans. Given we are in the middle of a big fundraiser, I'd love to see the AD throw an extra million a year to the assistants to upgrade the staff. Commit to win and hopefully it'll pay off with some wins and recruits. I'd hate for us to have to go budget shopping.

    We also weren't paying for an OC - so factor that in to the assistants' salary. Also...htf did Temple lose to FCS Villanova in the first game of the season at home? And before someone brings up MTSU, Nova finished 5-6 this year.

    My concern about the new coach regardless of whom was hired. Surely, TStan knows that GT needs to up the budget for assistants/support/etc. Otherwise, what was the point of the capital raise initiative?

    MTSU lost to Arkansas State 45-0 the year they beat us.

    This IMO is what GT needs the most for both results on the field and to sway fans into spending.

    If the pole happened a week before he was hired and we didn’t know he was gonna be hired, the percentage would be lower

    If he stays five years and is successful then that's still great for us. It's rare for a mediocre program (which is what we are at this point, if we're honest) to hire a coach who is both successful and stays longer than five years. Building up a program is a process, and sometimes it starts by being a stepping stone.

    Always going to be a die-hard CPJ fan, but I'm excited about this hire.

    Still think that after today’s presser? Dream job or smoke screen? I hope we get to find out to be honest.

    Based on the press conference, I'd say it sounded like he was delicately trying avoid saying he was a UGA fan growing up. He would've been 9-12 years old during the Herschel years. Those were the years UGA went to the Sugar Bowl and Tech went to the Toilet Bowl. I musta heard that a million times when I was a kid. The hate was planted at an early age.

    Anyhow, it's all good, he got me with the 'no more red pens in the AA' line.
