    Paul Johnson quit. He's gone. He's out of this conversation for everybody but Beej.

    Patenaude hasn't quit yet. I wish he would, because he's not a good fit for my school. I realize we're stuck with Collins for a few years. I think he's also going to be a big fat bust. I'd love to be wrong. But we ain't stuck with Patenaude. We can fire his ass.

    I know PJ quit. My point is I bet you weren't spouting off this diarrhea of the mouth this time last year when we were 3-4 (1-3ACC) with our wins coming against Alcorn St., Bowling Green, and a putrid Louisville team finished 2-10. We looked worse against Duke last year with more experience on both sides of the ball and 10 years into that offense. Yet, I don't recall you bashing the staff every week and demanding that we fire anybody.

    The whole damn point is you don't have enough data to make that assumption about Patenaude yet. Give the man time and a fair shake. You still have yet to provide any specifics as to why he should be gone after one half of a transitional season with an inexperienced roster. I'm not arguing that nobody could've done better, and I'm not arguing that whoever else we could have hired would be doing as bad. But the fact of the matter is with the current state of our team overall as far as talent and experience (and not just in this style offense, but overall experience even), it is extremely plausable that ANY coach could have come in and results not be any different to this point. Going forward in year 2 and 3 is where we will see. You're just being obtuse and ignorant blaming the OC.

    Why do people say Johnson "quit" instead of "retired"? What makes it quitting and not retiring?

    No one says Michael Jordan quit three times.

    Because I low-key expect Johnson to pick up a job as an OC somewhere and keep coaching.

    Then he'd be coming out of retirement.

    He's taking at least a year off from coaching. That's retirement.

    It'd be quitting if he stopped coaching at Tech then immediately took a job somewhere else

    I've quit jobs before without something else immediately lined up. I didn't call it "retirement". But IIWII. Quit/Retired/ööööed-off. Don't matter.

    If he does, watch the commits start to jump ship from whatever program that may be. Not a knock on CPJ at all, but it's been blatantly and publicly stated by recruits and high school coaches that recruits simply do not want to play in that offense.

    I did not say we would go 5-7. I would rather go 1-11 if that allows us to evaluate and develop players for the future. Coach Collins will be here for a while. You need to calm down and see what happens. We definitely have the least talent on the offensive and defensive line of any P5 team. I am not aware of any other P5 team that starts multiple walk ons on the offensive line.

    Do we have less talent than an FCS school?

    He had some years left on his contract, although possibly with a "retirement" clause. I think leaving before your contract expires, with a month of notice, and a recruiting class not being aware a coaching change was coming, can fairly be called quitting.

    You keep bringing this up like it's the be-all end-all of football. No we do not have less talent than an FCS school, but you'd be surprised at how close were are to them on the lines of scrimmage right now. That plus the transition you are being ridiculous not understanding how significant that is.

    In 2015 USCe lost to Citadel. South Carolina was #22 in 247 composite team talent.
    Portland State beat Washington State that year. Do you think Mike Leach is a crappy coach? It happened to him again the next season by Eastern Washington. It took the perfect storm of everything to go wrong that day for us to lose.

    Right, and CPJ's best Tech team ever (2014) damn near lost to Georgia Southern.

    What ööööing game were you watching? We looked like crap against the Citadel. We looked like crap against USF. We have looked like crap all season long. Unless that perfect storm was lazy coaching and lazy playing and an asshole sitting in the box with his feet up calling plays.

    Tech deserved to lose to the Citadel. There wasn't a perfect storm or a bunch of unfortunate events.

    But hIsToRiC TrAnSfOrMaTiOn. Our coaching this season is clown shoes L round.

    Then why are you still here? The coaches aren't going anywhere for a while and if they're really that bad then what's the point of caring about it all since it's hopeless then? Is it that you won't be satisfied unless everyone here agrees with you on how bad our coaches are?

    However incompetent all of our players are, it is easier for my adolescent son to throw a short pass than a long pass. So of course we should be completing them at a higher rate. Just how high? I don't know!
    I don't really know how most football analysts do their jobs... But I know that they usually underestimate Tech. 2008 is another famous example... if we had all this NFL talent on the roster which deserves credit for the strong year that year, why did every football analyst in the nation miss it?

    Who knows? Who cares? I just know I'm watching some really, really ugly football right now. I'm not willing to give anyone a pass for it – and most certainly not the head coach! I'm also not arguing for his firing (not by a long long long shot!). But he deserves the criticism he's getting. We look like crap.

    I dislike your post because the someone argues that all of our players never get offers from other P5 schools. So someone posts the offer sheets for those players showing they do have offers from other schools and then you move the goal posts with some herp derp about 'well those offers don't count and aren't real'. Can you post something to back up your claim or are we all just supposed to take your word for it?
