Default Mangus now coaching TEs

Big Spur is reporting GA Mangus will add TEs to his coaching duties.

http://southcarolina.247sports.com/B...-ends-28304155

Since Joe Robinson now only handles special teams, could this be a sign that if special teams don't improve this year, we may be letting Joe go?

Seems to me you leave a guy one job to do he should do it well.

Quite possibly. Joe Rob gets paid really well. He hasn't recruited really well, but also he's never been known as a top tier recruiter. Joe Rob had awesome Spec Teams at lsu and unc. 2 years ago he had a solid Spec Team, last year was ****ing horrible. If he can't get to at least above avg (out of 120ish teams) this coming year, he'll probably be replaced.

Please explain because when I look at all the talent that we have and then look at the sorry ass special teams the one thing that stands out to me is coaching. SOS will not deal with it.

I guess we will see when fall practice starts.

This move might help us with 5* TE in '16 Isacc Nauta? We are in his top 2 and Mangus is his recruiter.

Thats a good point. I think this helps us a lot in getting Nauta. Even though Mangus was already his primary recruiter it means much more to the kids to have a strong bond with your position coach than your recruiter, and Robinson doesn't recruit well enough to establish a friendship strong enough to pull an out of state 5*.

Default Re: Mangus now coaching TEs

Something I do not get is our performance on returns.

As a program I think our weakness is finding big linemen who can play, particularly on offense. That may have changed, we have been recruiting much better in this regard the past five years or so.

But we have always gotten plenty of athletic kids. And we get guys who can run at lb, even if they are a little on the small side sometimes.

So why can't we seem to dig up a return guy every year? Some of our kids really showed out in high school doing this. Is it the schemes? They just don't have the knack? We don't have starters out there playing on ST? We don't spend enough time on them in practice?

I really don't get it. I think we usually have the kind of kids that could be lights out as ST players, but it never happens. It sure seems to me that we generally are in the lower echelon of the SEC as regards this part of the game every year.

I think this is one thing we could do as well as Florida, LSU, anyone. But it never happens.

As someone said kickers are odd. You can guess wrong on how a kid translates to college pretty easily with a placekicker, given the tee and all. But why punters? What is different about popping the ball in HS as opposed to college? I'll never get that one. We've had kids that knocked the stuffing off in high school punting, then just don't do it here.

And you really have no control other than inviting kids to walk on if you don't offer a kicker. Seems like a lot of SEC schools go this route, then give them a scholarship if they don't win the job. But that is a guessing game too a lot of times.

But the return teams I don't get. And kick blocking. Was Georgia the last time we blocked a punt a couple years ago?

Dunno. Seriously going back to 92 it sure seems like we have had the worst special teams in the SEC any given year. Only time it really picked up was when Ace was doing it.

This will help with TE recruiting for sure. It already seems like it is making an impact on the recruiting trail.
