    Saban will like beating UGAg and Clemson so much that after winning the National Championship this season, he will resign from Bama and coach GT just so he can beat the mutts and tiggers every year.

    Whatever we do, please dont hire Wisenhunt. I dont want another NFL offense here that you need Alabama talent to execute. NFL offenses only work when you have superior talent and a great QB.

    I've been on the fence about Monken, but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of it.

    My biggest and perhaps only reservation with monken is the possibility he retains sewak.

    He can't win at Tech. Make it known.

    Here’s the thing. We could get Briles for super cheap. Then we could take the remaining HC money and pay Little John to follow him around as his hype man.

    If Art Briles walked into your living room with Little John saying “YEA - AH” at every break in the conversation, you’d sign with Tech. It wouldn’t even be close.

    Jeff Monken.

    Mike Leach would be my unrealistic choice.

    Compare the following:

    Speech 1:
    - Look son, I’ve watched your film and I think you’ve got something special. I’d like you to come to Georgia Tech and lead us to a national championship.

    Speech 2:
    - Look son, I’ve watched your film
    - YEA -EAH
    - And I think you’ve got something special
    - ALRIGHT
    - I’d like you to come to Georgia Tech
    - HOTLANTA
    - And lead us to a national championship
    - THATS RIGHT

    Will Healy, although he's not exactly lighting it up at the moment.

    Monken - a good choice to continue with the option offense. If he brought Bateman as DC that would really be nice.
    Leach - who wouldn't like him? Surely Atlanta is preferable to Pullman.
    Venables - Dabo would not be happy.
    Whisenhunt - a reasonable choice if Tech ties are important
    Houston - he has done well for an extended period of time at JMU
    Hatcher - my actual favorite. He would have the best relationships with Georgia high school coaches of anyone we have had since Dodd
    Ross - with Ralph and George as coordinators - a better nostalgic move than the one UNCheat made by a long shot
    Who I don't want - Briles (Baylor's mess was embarrassing) and Kiffin (Mrs. Kiffin might be acceptable)

    Horrific OC on a winless team.

    Hard pass.

    Can somebody give me a reason why Brent Key wouldn't be a horrific hire? He was an absolute train wreck as an OC at UCF.

    ARMY's Monken? He is a PJ Spread Option HC. You're not a Triple Option team & you can't recruit T-Option players.
