Re: This HC search is tighter than a puppy’s butt hole

It’s one thing to recruit to Auburn and FSU, it’s another thing to recruit to USU. It reminds me of how MW was promoted to OC and then HC 1 year later. Too much too soon too fast. Yeah, the multiple years of sustained success we had with Matt Wells (with one outlier year) sure sucked. :lol: https:/...

Is the search tight-lipped or does the media just not care?
In past coaching search cycles there has been much more media buzz. Given that fact, I think Hartwell is intentionally keeping it close to the vest.

Wish them both luck in the future unless they transfer to BYU or Utah. I won't be shocked when Jaylen lands at either school. I would be fairly surprised if he transferred to Utah. There is little, to no chance, he becomes a featured back and would most likely be a situational back. The only way I ...

Re: Did TJ Woods also change for the worse with GA?

He was a good offensive line coach under GA 1.0. Did he take a turn for the worse with him? I don't think the OL has played badly this year. They seem to run block well.
