USA Today Review of Georgia Tech Football

+

This is probably the best national review of Georgia Tech football I've seen...ever. The author of this article, Paul Myerberg, actually did some research. He also provides a link to FTRS, so bring on the pageviews!

T.J. Barnes Making Noise at Jaguars Training Camp

+

T.J. Barnes has made some noise at Jaguars training camp, impressing in pass rush drills (albeit against back up players). The head coach would like to see how well he can keep it up at that size, but notes that he carries his weight well and is showing his skill.

Perception or Reality?

I'm thinking about how this recruiting class has been received and how much of that depends on seemingly arbitrary decisions made by the recruiting sites.

Report: Kelly Leaving for FSU, Will Not Be DC

+

Ken Suguira from the AJC has reported that Charles Kelly will leave Georgia Tech to become the linebacker coach at FSU. After a strong showing as the interim defensive coordinator in the ACC Championship Game and the Sun Bowl, many wanted Kelly to become the permanent defensive coordinator. It looks like that won't happen now.

Whether You Like It or Not, It Starts

Let's face it, quarterback is the most important position in football, regardless of the scheme. He handles the ball on (nearly) every snap, makes decisions on protection, decides who to throw the...

Bold Prediction Part The Third: More than Half of Tech’s Starting Lineup Will Play on Sundays

Stephen Hill Interview with SB Nation

Derek Dooley On Why Over-Signing is Good

12

I'll agree that putting the 25 player limit on each class won't necessarily end over-signing. Everything else...well, I'll let you read why Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley says over-signing is good for players.

Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech? According to DraftTek's computer simulation of the NFL draft, that's one possibility. At least the computers are on Hill's side.

Smart Football Looks at the Interplay of Recruiting, Schemes, and Greatness

18

"For the truly elite-level recruiting teams, I think the agnosticism of pro-style treats them well because they basically recruit incredible players and then figure out the system and scheme later..." "For everyone else having an identity and being somewhat contrarian helps a lot because it allows you to focus your recruiting on guys that can help you...It also means the traditional scouting services may overrated or underrate your recruiting class — you may have gotten a bunch of guys who will contribute but get a low ranking, or you may have missed a lot of guys you needed but wind up with a disproportionately high ranking because you got one or two guys who, while helpful, may not even be your most productive guys." Interesting read if you guys have time.

Georgia Tech v. Miami: The Aftermath

117

After seeing Georgia Tech drop its second straight game, I can't help but ask myself two things: what happened, and what should we do about it?  This isn't anything new either.  The offense has...

What do we think when we hear 2011 Georgia Tech Offense? How about record setting?...explosive?...video game-esque?  Perhaps if you've been asleep for a few weeks, that's what you'd say.  With the...

Broken 'Backers Bring Challenges

Now that we're approaching the bulk of ACC play this season, it's helpful to look at how we're doing on both sides of the ball.  What can we expect from the different position groups from this...

Aycock Calls It Quits

+

We all know about Paul Johnson's definition of "commit" because of one person: Dontae Aycock. Well, sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make. Aycock hasn't amounted to much after his eventful recruiting a few years ago.

Secondary is Primary Uncertainty

Coaches By The Numbers: Paul Johnson Recruiting Myths

2

For all of us who hear how Coach Johnson doesn't recruit someone unless that player receives an offer from some Community College too, here's some information that shows how CPJ has had more success recruiting than Chan Gailey.

Declining Fundamentals in American Basketball

+

Because Tech is looking for a new basketball coach, and I believe that acquiring someone who can teach the game of basketball should be Priority #1, this article by the AJC is pertinent. No one teaches players how to actually play basketball anymore: how to get open without the ball, how to cooperate as a team, and the fundamentals of the game.
