BUBBLE SCREEN!!!!!!!
Call it on every play. We'll score 100.

I went to school with Ted and love him dearly as a Tech man. But he sucks as a coach and can't hold a coaching job anywhere. But he sells himself as well as anyone. So I''m happy for him but I have no idea what Clemson is thinking.

He’s going to be an “analyst.” How much damage can he do?
You ain't payin attention. They didn't hire Ted Roof for his non-existent analytical ability - of that, I am certain.

An analyst for the "bend but don't break" scenario.

I try to respect Ted being a Tech man and player back in the 80's. How this man keeps getting a job at being a defensive coach or any coach position is beyond my understanding. I wish him well, and hope Clemson suffers for it.

I'm guessing he signs a year to year lease on a house

He must be living out of hotels or in a van down by the river. I can’t imagine his family moving every two years.

I guess I never put it together that his DC tenure under CPJ was his longest career stint. That's pretty sad.
