I know the Frost news has it’s own thread, but figured we’d start a master thread as well with Nebraska first out of the gate.
Report: Arizona State staffers were leaking info to help opponents, get Herm Edwards fired - Saturday Out WestArizona State staffers were reportedly loose with intel on the football team in hopes of inducing a coaching change.saturdayoutwest.com
Tech should hand Deion Sanders a blank check and tell him to write it for what he wants. Can you imagine Sanders in Atlanta?!?! He’d be the one coach I can think of that Tech could hire who might could actually get some Georgia kids to go to tech rather than Athens. I also think it is smart for Tech to get out in front of Auburn. While Auburn can probably pay more, I’d argue it would be easier to win at Tech in the ACC than Auburn. Academic standards are higher yes, but the right coach at Tech could get competitive quickly.Apparently GT's cutting the cord with the AD too. Pivotal program moment it seems.
GIT is a difficult school to get into for starters, high academic standards. It's going to be a difficult build. People are mentioning Deion Sanders, but that is not the right fit. Obviously the last "hype" guy didnt work for them. Despite being in ATL, 5 Stars arent looking to go there, most- not all are going to go where the academics are easier sledding. They need to be looking at a coach similar to the last two at Wake Forest, a Jim Grobe or Dave Clawson type. Unique and out of the box. They had Paul Johnson but folks groused about his triple option, however he won games.Actually, when Collins came on there was some comparison around the "culture change" talk both he and PJ embraced when coming aboard.
I don't think he will show up on any GT lists for this one.
I think the biggest issue there is Collins' recruiting ability. I've been watching since our match-up in 2018 when Coach Johnson was on the way out and PJ has just brought in higher quality players for us, period, especially the lines on both sides of the ball. Add a strong dose of coaching up for those who do come here and we've had our /\/\/\/ improvement over time that is not happening at Tech.
I'd still like to see them in a super-conference with the B1G given the Atlanta market and the heart of SEC country. Don't see that happening although apparently in 2012 or so (I think) there was an offer for GT to join the Big 10. Many GT fans wish that had happened then. Unlike Nebbie who is in the B1G, GT is an AAU institution with significant research commitments.
