GT new coach is.....

24 posts in this topic

Collins gets a 7 year deal. Tech realized it's going to take some bad years to get the roster where it needs to be. Collins will have a long leash to build.

I don’t get why coaches have to talk **** about UGA when they get hired.  Champ, Mullen’s, and now Collins.  Comes off as a sign of weakness to me.

If anything, it just further elevates the UGA program.  We are the measuring stick for other programs.

His comments are moronic.  Top 15 public school degrees matter a lot.  It just shows how impt we are to those programs.  We dont see them the same way.

He knows the nerds eat it up. But the funny thing is he’s not recruiting against us. He’s recruiting against schools like Duke, Virginia, Vanderbilt. :shrug:

Good hire imo but we will see how he does with rebuilding that roster. 

He was smart enough to get 7yr contract.   Probably won’t be competitive team until Year#3.

Considering they are recruiting against junior colleges and lower division programs there might be a little truth in that.

Collins isn’t fully committed until he starts spelling his name “Jeff” to avoid writing a G.

Well Geoff sorta' fits with GT.

yeah he won't be competing with us for top players that we want.  it will take 3 years for him to change out his personnel and frankly he has shown nothing as a head coach for this to be even considered a good hire.  he was at temple that was turned around by the coaches before him.  he has a lot to prove for anyone to believe he is a good head coach.  i really thought they were going to hire tony elliot after whisenhunt turned them down..  i do like it for collin's sake that he was given a 7 year deal.. it will take him a while (3 years minimum) to turn around that roster.

He was cheap. He reportedly got less than Paul Johnson was making. They also stressed their desire to hire someone that wouldnt leave. Tech was afraid Norvell or some other candidate would bolt after some success. Collins really is getting a long term deal, hes the man in Atlanta no matter what happens.

Let them get blown out by UGA 3 or 4 more times in a row and I bet that deal starts getting a lot shorter.

Otherwise they’re just accepting that they will be mediocre and hope for bowl games and football will simply be a means for extra revenue that they don’t really care about....... which is pretty much what it is anyway.

Correct... After they had gone 20-8 the previous two seasons of I'm not mistaken. 

Ultimately, they are committing to changing their roster and this is how they're going about it. And maybe they get lucky and he pans out as a good coach. He was smart to force a seven year contract, but curious on the buyout.

Yes, Matt Rhule produced two 10 win seasons. They were 20-7 but you're close enough. Collins went 7-6 and 8-4.

Seriously though, I like it when Tech is better. Romping them Techsters doesnt sting them as much as a close loss.  If I am honest I like it when when all of UGA's rivals are better competition. #1 makes for great games the whole season long #2 think its how UGA gets over that championship hump, still think they play some if not most games tough for awhile and then coast. leaning on talent and depth. Which is great, but it doesnt prepare you for Bama or other games where the competition doesnt go away so easily. Its why you see Kirby freak at a mistake when they are up 21 points in the 4th, he knows Bama wont fold and will be there 4 quarters.

I'm guessing Collins got some incentives from Waffle House. The guy is never photographed without something from Waffle House or hes at the Tech Waffle House.
