    It's never as good or bad as it seems. This is a conservative, Tech community, kind of hire. It was probably decided weeks ago, and they were waiting for the season to end and CCK to announce his move. I'm guessing that Roof was hired as someone who can work well with CPJ and not be radical in his strategy. I don't think we'll get a top 25 defense, but we'll be more sound and consistent. If we have the athletes we need to run the TO, the defense will probably be good enough.

    No where near tea bagging, just a joke war run amuck. I let 30 crickets go in his apartment after that, we called it a tie.

    And why exactly would Roof be leaving PSU for Tech? I'm curious to know this after being he was there for only one year. Has anyone answered that?

    Have you not read StingTalk? We are the premier program in America, we should be winning a MNC every other year. Why wouldn't a legend like Ted Roof come here?

    Well for one, our program is in better shape than theirs right now.

    But mainly, this is his alma mater.

    :lol:
    Unfortunately I read most of BS on ST, but didn't see this. Actually saw why he left PSU.. He felt unstable.


    Better shape is questionable, but I'll give you that. I knew this was his alma mater but still find it odd that he'd come back after being at PSU..


    I welcome him back..

    BTW.. Has anyone pointed that he is an ex head coach??

    I've got a FLAWLESS metric for measuring defenses. Wins vs losses. 2010 Auburn team won every game. That means their defense allowed fewer points than their offense scored.

    That, my friend, is kinda the definition of winning a football game. Not yards per play, yards per game or any other stat. To quote a famous saying "stats are for losers".

    considering we were all overjoyed at the Groh hire. I expect our ineptitude when it comes to evaluating coordinators will shine through with this hire, and we will have a top 15 D next year.

    Will improve the defense, pretty much has to, since it can't get any worse.

    This hire wasn't about the defense winning ball games. Just being marginally better on D means more wins.

    I guess the topic that divides the fan base has been settled already for 2013. I'm glad it won't be the QB again, that was miserable. At least it will be on the side of the ball where we actually have problems.

    Here's to new arguments in 2013.

    anyone else find this hire ironic after hearing about CPJ's comments on rewriting history?

    Allowing fewer points in a game of college football than Cam Newton can score is something about half of FBS defenses could have done in 2010. To quote a famous saying "herp derp".

    I would have perferred CCK over Roof. There must have been a large rift between he and CPJ otherwise this hire makes no sense.

    Ask Chip Kelly what he thinks about Roof's defense. His offense averaged 49 points per game. But Ted's defense held him to 19 points...which was one less than that AWESOME CAM NEWTON-LED offense scored.

    So on a night, in the biggest game of the year, the offense lays a turd for most of the game and the defense bailed them out. That's what's called winning a game and winning a national championship....f**k the stats. So herp the derp up your ass.

    Please. CPJ doesn't give a öööö about what fans think, and even if he did he wouldn't give a öööö what the delusional nutters on this board think.
