Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

I watched Spurlock give a good UNC Charlotte team 36 and 18 one night. I thought for sure he was going to be an NBA player - dude was impossible to deal with when he was right. Apke recruited well - Spurlock, Ricky Nedd, Nod Carter, Broderick Parker, Billy Ross, Junior Braswell, Chad McClendon, Jeff...

Re: Stadium Area Pics

The track program needs a place to train/practice, which they can do on parts of the track not closed off to EZ facility construction. They obviously won't have any home meets until the new facility is constructed, at which time the remainder of the existing track will be removed. Not ideal, especia...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

If the last two hires are RB and DL, that would have to mean Roof is going to take either ILBs or OLBs. He's a linebacker coach by trade, I believe.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

One thing I just thought about: maybe all his years with PJ have given him some special insight into dealing with the triple option. That would certainly be a good thing for the DC at App State.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

App State is hiring the guy who was fired by Georgia Tech so Georgia Tech could hire the guy that put in App State's defense.

Makes sense.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

ACC PROGRAM: "Hey, Ted, this style of defense just isn't getting it done in today's game anymore. So thanks and all, but you should find somewhere else to work. We want to look more like App State on that side of the ball." ONE YEAR LATER APP STATE: "Hey, Ted, come run our defense." Spin it, sell it...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

It's impossible to know how this will work out. Until he is interviewed by someone who asks him about his schematic preferences, his openness to change, etc., all we can do is guess why Drink went this route. But what we do know is this: 1. He's been fired (or politely asked to leave) four times, in...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

Roof is a dinosaur. A dinosaur who has coached at a number of P5 programs and so he knows what it looks like at that level and what kind of athletes and resources are needed to compete. In the past he also had a good reputation as a teacher. If this is a hire primarily based on that experience and b...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

Chizik is a 4-3, Cover 2 aficionado. All he's ever run. Would be a TERRIBLE fit for App's personnel, and the G5 in general.

If he even had any interest in getting back into coaching, which he doesn't appear to have.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

If the pool is $1.5 million for his staff, split among 10 coaches and an S&C guy, how about this for a potential breakdown: AHC/OL: $200k DC: $200k S&C: $150k Def Asst: $150k Off/ST Asst: $125k Def Asst: $125k Def Asst: $125k Def Asst: $125k Off Asst: $100k Off Asst: $100k Off Asst: $100k That adds ...

I see us knowing by Monday. That would be fast. I was thinking Wednesday or Thursday. Been reported by multiple places it could be done this weekend. Been over a week, not very fast IMO. Just 4-5 days is moving fast when you consider the interest and that we have a bowl game to prepare for. DG has ...

Huh? There were 22 FBS head coach openings this year. All but 5 have been filled already. Getting this done by the end of this weekend would be about right. Certainly wouldn't qualify as "fast."

Re: Sour Grapes From Statesboro

What a sophomoric load of bull. Trav moaning about "transparency" and voting procedure as a way of whining about awards not going the way he wanted them to go. Alleging some half-baked idea that "Lunsford wuz robbed!" because his fellow coaches are somehow threatened by him. He doesn't give a damn a...

Re: This is big

Troy was sandbagging yesterday vs. Texas State. Didn't play some banged up guys who could have played and tried not to show much. Saturday will be a flat-out war - they are very good, Brown is an excellent coach, and they're going to throw some stuff out there that they haven't shown much of. Need t...
