    the same folks internally we have used?

    I have to assume all of this is running through him. If he is as good of a football coach as he is a marketer, we will be just fine. He wants to own the city of Atlanta.

    I have no idea what Mike Flynn means here but more branding and marketing I assume. Did not want to start a new thread but based on Flynn's tweet we will not have a traditional depth chart. Guess this is a form of roster management.

    That has to be all Coach G

    If it was the GTAA Mktg folks then they could have done the same things with TPR in place

    Instead, all we got was "GT FB the perfect option"

    Whoop dee doo, yeah that really made Atlantans want to support GT FB

    I love that there is no emphasis or hashtags referencing the ACC.

    I'm guessing that ATL is good enuff and below the line means you're RS'ing or leaving

    It's all about the ATL baybee

    Above The Line

    Coach G is setting a standard of excellence

    Bout damn time

    I know you're hated here but you do make me laugh often. You bring the juice for sure. I ran out of juice a long time ago.

    How will that even work? If we have 2 "ATL" quarterbacks do they just flip a coin to see which one plays since there is no depth chart?

    He did this at Temple so it isn’t new. He is emphasizing the initials bc of the Atlanta tie in. There was an article about it in a Temple papers.

    The basic point of ATL is that he believes in depth so it motivates everyone that will play to give their best where some people are only motivated to start or not. He wants to de-emphasize that thinking. It makes a lot of sense to me.

    I truly have no idea what any of this means but Flynn says, "#innovationisinourdna" so I assume college coaches will no longer use depth charts in a few years.:lol:

    I did not know this. I like it. Yeah if a starter plays 70% of the snaps and a non-starter plays 55%, who really cares. You're either #ATL or you are not. There is a lot more than marketing there. That's actually very bright.

    Thanks for the article. Based on that it sounds like it's not just a marketing ploy -- we literally won't announce starters before the game. Wonder how long before ACC coaches complain about that.

    What he's saying does make sense though. I just was turned off initially by the ATL tie-in and the seeming gimmicky-ness of it -- hopefully all of this stuff is a turn-on for recruits. It's certainly the polar opposite of CPJ.

    Why is the depth chart thing confounding people? I'm just a casual observer and this was a known thing for weeks now.

    So if a player is on the bench, and never plays, is he a starter?
