    Look in our budget and find a $2 million payout. It isn't there and our budget isn't so big that they could easily hide that.

    He saw the schedule for this and next year, looked at his recruits, and did the calculus. He wanted to leave still ranked above Gailey on the win percentage scale. That wasn’t happening if he stuck around any longer. So he bailed.

    I would bet that's not the only reason, but that that might have had a small bit to do with it, personally.

    What I heard was negotiated down and spread payments, but I'm getting info filtered from folks second hand.

    PJ had a 1 million dollar retirement clause in his contract. We discussed it a lot. Seems like it was put in there in case there was a mutual desire to part ways.

    Fwiw, I think he still had the option of coming back for another year, but had no desire to live the hotseat life at his age (and make no mistake, he put himself on the hotseat with the past 4 year's record) and the x's and o's were no longer fun with the talent disparities he was facing. So I basically think it was somewhat mutual.

    Why we talking about this again?

    I think cpj retired. Dont think we "ran him off."

    Although after ut game and his later contact with ut we probably should have.

    He didnt know? Horse manure, but if on the slight possibility it is true then he should have fired his agent.

    For those too young to know, this has so many similarities to 1980 it is scary.

    Thank heavens this time we didnt bring in a new HC for all the wrong reasons.

    The "circumstances"?

    The players way to honor cpj?

    Usually players are fired up toi send a coach out a winner.

    From what I was told, Paul’s decision to step down was entirely his own
    There were going to be conversations about the program and its future - but Paul turned his notice before those could take place
    Would Paul still have a job after those talks isn’t clear

    Really disappointing bowl game. New coach already hired who said they change the system so players feel like what’s the point of practicing. Transfers looking to get out. I would say SOMETIMES players rally to send coach off as a winner. Maybe in a more desirable bowl the team would have. You know this but you choose to be obtuse.

    I'm not sure we can do it, either. Objectively, it's a tough game for most schools. It's a tall ask for whatever you want to call Tech at the moment.

    Preach it brother! No excitment at all in GT football with PJ's QB keeper offense. Seriously, just was not any fun at all walking into BDS in those years!

    I would say losing to a 27 point underdog was way less fun than destroying Kansas, Syracuse, etc. with the 3O.

    I think it's time for us to stop comparing where we are with where we were, because it's so totally irrelevant. The interesting questions at this point are what can CGC do to get this team to 'rally' and win some games this season.

    He needs to head up to Boggs and find some smoke-making chems and then head over to the Optics lab in Howey and get a ööööton of mirrors.

    mix that öööö up - success!

    Check out his UConn film.



    He looks plenty fast enough there, and makes some good catches in traffic.
