Thread: It's a small world vs. dead horse beating

  1. Default It's a small world vs. dead horse beating

    So it appears Colorado has a new quality control assistant, for safeties.
    it's Bryan Cook, who is leaving Collins' staff at Ga Tech as a quality control assistant for Boulder, where his boss will be ...

    He left CSU after just that one season to become the head coach at Georgia Southern, a program entering its third year in the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Sun Belt Conference. Summers would spend almost two years in the role, guiding GSU to five victories, but oversee the program show significant improvement in the classroom with a program-high NCAA APR score. Seven of his players in his first season earned All-Sun Belt honors, and placekicker Younghoe Koo was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award. He also showed his prowess on the recruiting trail as the Eagles boasted one of highest-ranked classes in the Sun Belt as ranked by 247Sports.

    This was in the bio on CU website. Lipstick on a pig? More like parsley on a cow patty!

    You know, a lot of coaches in the Division 1 ranks have come through Georgia Southern at one point in their career. Not all were highly successful but has served as a career pathway for going to larger schools. That's not such a bad thing.

    Well every second.....that's not exactly true. It might have been bad for us but not so bad for them. That was my point. Both, TS and Van Gorder, as well, ended up with jobs at a higher level and just maybe they learned from it. Despite the anguish that occurred during their tenures, I don't wish ill will toward them. We may not like what they did here, we can't change that, but can hope they find success and that they speak well of their days in Statesboro. ( they might not, but we can't control that) Its just too darn easy to be bitter and I was raised better. But, in the bigger picture, look at all the other Coaches and Assistants who found professional success down the road. Most did pretty good for themselves. Only a very few found Ga Southern their last stop in their professional careers. In the spectrum of Eagle fans, I am one the true old timers. we all have seen a thing or two and maybe have learned a thing or two.

    I wish the best for TS, he is a god guy, the other, BVG was and is an arrogant know it all who's career has continued to slide down hill closer and closer to the proverbial outhouse. The football coaching fraternity is a tight knit group, they take care of their own. If BVG was in anyother profession he would have been unemployed for the last 8-10 years.

    The bio made it sound like "entering it's third season of FBS" was the reason for only 5 wins. TS is getting paid and has a nice career ahead of him. It's not entirely his fault that he was hired for a job he wasn't prepared for. I just read that part of the bio as dismissive and insulting.

    The notion that he was so incompetent by accident is a stretch. He and Smart are buddies from way back, and I have so little respect for Smart that I wouldn’t put something like a plant past him. He comes from the Saban swamp..... And we all saw what happened to UAB when they became a threat to AL.

    In the long run, CTS will have a good career. No one will likely ever know whether his performance was a genuine accident. But the damage was very real. Set us back at least 5 years.

    I don’t believe in accidents. I truly don’t believe what happened was an accident.

    People tend to forget how truly awful it was..... “I didn’t watch any film.” That’s what TS said when asked how he would adjust to our unique style of offense. Yeah. Started off real good. Right out of the chute, and got worse. Once again.... Does something like that seem like an accident?

    What coach (at any level) wouldn’t watch film to figure out what a team he was taking over was good at. That is unbelievable to me.

    There’s more than one way to pull a UAB. We got leveled. Fortunately we are on the right track again, but we absolutely got destroyed by “accident....” Right. Stick with the accidental incompetence theory if it makes you feel better.
    Here you go with this conspiracy theory bull**** again.

    No, the truth of the matter is that TK ****ed up. Part of why Summers was hired was a kneejerk reaction to Fritz bailing on us. Another part is that Summers was intimately familiar with our school and used that knowledge in his interview. Why else would the guy show up clean shaven with a bald head when he's never had that look at any other time? He also had guys vouching for him like George O'Leary that are respected in the coaching world.

    If anyone was a plant it was Sam Baker, not Tyson Summers.

    He was a bad hire. People do that. TK thought he was getting a Chad Lunsford, not what he actually got.

    The warning signs were all there:
    Hiring an air raid OC and a running spread coach to run a "gun option with a throw game".
    The "mic'd up" segment were he was suggesting our all-conference DT didn't "know how to practice".
    The "change the culture" comments. Who the bleep says that after you have the kind of first couple of seasons in FBS we did?
    The comments suggesting the players weren't "buying in".
    Acting like everything was all great when we were 3-0 (most of us knew we were in deep **** after that ULM game).

    It's not like we thought we were getting a fancy Italian dish and got dog poop on a platter. All of the foreshadowing was there for those paying attention. Who knows why he was hired beyond it came down to him and Jamey Chadwell and I guess we didn't like the NCAA infractions and the Broom incident.
