If we can whip our OLs into shape and teach them how to hold like every other OL on every other level of FB, we win 8-9 games easy, I think we are close to getting over the hump, the ND fiasco just has us shell shocked that we were beaten so thoroughly.This is a real head scratcher, but here’s what I understand are the relevant financials.
1. We owe G*C* $14M if we fire him Sunday, $7.2M at end of next year, $4.8M in 2023.
2. As part of that Oregon St contract dispute, GT paid $1.5M to pay off the Beavers and reduced Stansbury’s contract by $300k/yr thru 2026. We’re now paying him $650k/yr.
The big money guys must have told him to eff off. Not a good sign because this means we’ll have this imbecile for probably 2 years and maybe 3. Likely scenario is 9 more wins for GT football, fire both Stansbury and G*C* right after the 2024 mutt game. It’s a minimal buyout & GT shows it’s utter disregard for its student athletes and fans.
I think we’re stuck with Key until his BS contract runs out next year. I’m not sure anyone has the nuts to fire Goober, they’ll offer up Thacker as their tribute to appease the masses. Blame the whole season on him & pray to God we can muster 4 wins next year. Thacker gets a hug on the way out & effusive praise for the great job he did.
The only other alternative is Stansbury is trying to reverse Homer Rice’s legacy & turn us into a 1AA school and maybe move us into the Southern Conference with Citadel and Furman. We might be able to pick up a trophy or two that way in some of the minor sports.
I'll never understand why our OL & our Secondary has no competitive fire in them.
