I just both both guys know what they are getting themselves into... for GT's sake.
Thanks that was it. We lost to Wake before it was "ok" to lose to Wake which Gailey popularized. Seemed like 40 points. Alas I remember blaming Roof.
This is like hearing that Tevin got a 6th year of eligibility from the NCAA.
öööö. Let it go, will ya?
It's not that bad really though Beej67, he is replacing Al Groh. If he can hold the MTSU's of the world to under 21 points he will win over some fans. Seriously, if we can slow down some offenses in our first few games the fans will warm up to him. A lot of us who remember him as a player are already hoping he does well.
I honestly believe Paul Johnson was just sitting around thinking to himself "what would piss off the fan base more...hiring Van Gorder ...or Ted Roof?"
Roof will NOT be worse than what we just experienced, and I want to support him until he proves me wrong.
1999 was painful, but I believe he can get our scoring D in the top 35 in 1-2 years.....that is all we need folks....and he is a Tech man.
Wonder if Roof will have any input on unis
It seemed that we had turned the corner with Kelly, so I would have been happier with his hire.
What the players think matters a lot as well. I think Kelly had them believing they could be a good defense. Now they have to start from scratch.
Well, roll the dice...
this hire is about RECRUITING and not coaching. PJ has realized that it will not be about x's and o's for his defense. It is about BIG FAST HITTERS. TR is one of the best recruiters in the country and that trumped the other candidates.
I suspect that PJ will stay involved in the defense and will allow TR recruit some NFL D players.
While this hire may not appear to be a HOMERUN I think PJ believes this hire will take him to the next level (consistent double digit wins).
If PJ's offense was not so great I would be worried. There is NO TEAM that PJ has not beaten. The addition of the the passing packages shows he is always trying to improve the product. If we get some better D players we will be fine.
Oh my god.
Please help me understand how he's a great recruiter.....I am posting the link that shows the recruits that HE is responsible for....mostly 2* and 3* with a mixed 4* here and there over the years. His last 4* was in 2009.
As has been mentioned, he didn't win the Broyles. It hasn't been 14 years since he left Tech either.
I'm underwhelmed by this hire given the memories of games that we won and lost in shootouts during his previous tenure, but maybe it works out differently this time.
BOR I am a happy Tech fan this evening. Been drinking some whiskey clear this afternoon. Give the man a chance, you will be happy he's back real soon.
Umm, if you're running 90 plays a game, even if the average play is ran in 20 seconds, you're chewing up half the clock.
I could have sworn we had solid defenses in 00 and 01?
This is about the only hire PJ could make to buy himself another year. But it could seriously backfire if the defense sucks at all.
The defense did improve from 1999 to 2000, that much is true.
