Re: QB Next Season?

In theory, but when it is clear that no matter how well you perform in practice that you will never overtake the starter it's a bit discouraging.

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

As soon as we hired Botkin I knew the coach had dialed it in on staffing decisions. We had a DC hired to head coaching position and instead of hiring the best available and taking advantage of the...

Re: Has the window closed for SOS to get back to Atlanta?

There are commonalities between teams year to year, coaches and some players, but every year approximately 20-25% of the team is new. That's why I like college football.

I'm not sure we could get...

And just because they clear a player doesn't mean he should play.

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

You can medically clear someone but that doesn't mean it is the right call to play them.

For example, you can say there is no medical contraindication to him playing. Meaning that he can[I] play...

Re: The Vent and Coaching change thread

No, it's not possible. The extent of the injury was not known and no one in the stadium would have thought they would actually play a star freshman with a torn acl.

It's that the game plan...

Re: Props to Eric Hyman. Thanks sucker.

I don't know anything about his personality, but changing the financial structure and the good ole boy network (or at least starting the change) was the best thing he did.

Re: does anybody think we will beat miami?

This game reeks of the Papa John bowl. If we don't have a fourteen point lead by the end of the 1st we get handled.

But you also don't have to play your entire hand either.

Re: 2015 - Mark Fields

I wasn't clear ... I meant that he didn't decommit right after that was said, only after the in home visit with Spurrier where with whatever was said, it was enough to convince Fields to get out.

Those would be our draws, but sometimes the negatives outweigh the positives.

Honestly, I'm assuming here, but from what all those on here have said he is really attached to Brown. Either...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

So the perception is that Spurrier's comments hurt us for at least 3 decommits but the reality is the comments really did hurt us, but we shouldn't have heard about that anyway?

Re: 2015 - Mark Fields

Come on dude. We have one of the worst defenses in the country. He didn't flip when Spurrier said his 2-3 year stuff, it was after the in home visit.

Re: 2015 - Mark Fields

2012 was Wards first year as DC. Swearinger left after that season so I don't think that's a good example, nor Ingram, for Ward's ability as DC to turn potential into production.

I hear about this "will to win" and see it a few times each year, but it no longer is consistent. If his will to win was strong enough, he wouldn't hand over play calling duties at random times per...

Re: Disturbing comments from Mark Fields

You're right. I'm sure Mark Fields decommitted because Emery on Cockytalk wasn't nice enough.

Re: Blogs and Fans Killed Recruiting Class

This is maybe the dumbest thing I've seen recently. What's killed this recruiting class is a coach who can't spin things well, an AD who's handcuffed, and a defensive coaching staff that's awful.
