    Yeah that was surprisingly smart. Temple has been on a pretty good run of coaches lately and that team is pretty damn good for someone to step into.

    poor Temple can't hold on to a coach. him staying one more year would have done that program a lot of good.

    Really good hire

    Maybe they'll be able to wrangle some recruits away from the South Carolina's, Tennessee's, Auburn's, etc.

    Just watching the UCF/Temple game they ran up tempo and put up 670 yards on them

    Then again it was against a randy Shannon defense

    Should've been their first choice.

    He works hard at recruiting. His teams don't beat themselves. He's not a triple option guy. That's as good as they can get.

    He’s putting together a staff that should recruit really well in Ga and the southeast. They won’t beat UGA/Bama/etc on kids those schools want but they’re gonna make it tough on that next tier of kids

    He, like Satterfield, is from the Mario Cristobal coaching tree (he gave both of them their first coordinator positions), gotta dislike him out of principle.

    it doesn't matter how good their recruiters are, you have to get these kids cleared into the school and you have to convince them to basically be into STEM because GT has mandatory STEM classes. oh and you have to beat out the dozen ACC/SEC schools that feast on your state at will already.

    GT is a fucking nightmare to recruit for, it's nuts.

    Stanford lowered their requirements for football players, does Georgia Tech not do the same? And aren't most GT football players just business majors?

    Yeah, think this is overblown. Stanford, Notre Dame, Northwestern etc.. all better schools academically that field respectable football programs and neither of them are in a better area to recruit and attract recruits than GT.

    Now that GT has ditched the Russel uniforms and the option they should be able to field a respectable program too if this coach is doing his job.

    I don't know their requirements but I can definitely say theirs is probably the highest in the ACC which puts them up there in general for a P5 school. also, the major is whatever (although they don't have joke majors a lot of other schools do) but I'm saying they have mandatory STEM classes like Calc and Physics that a lot of kids aren't prepared for nor into taking which adds into it being hard to recruit there. that's the reason a school in the middle of Atlanta sucks at both football and basketball. with different standards they could be a powerhouse in at least one of those sports.

    Are these requirements new?

    They used to have elite basketball and pretty good football. Seems like bad coaching decisions more than academics keeping people out.

    From how I understand it.....Ga Tech admissions are a notch higher than baseline clearinghouse requirements. Im not sure where its at, but you need a higher GPA and you have to have some particular coursework. Its not where Stanford is/was, but its harder for a Football kid to get in Ga Tech than Georgia.

    Gus Malzahn is looking for a new right-hand man.

    Patrick Suddes, the top man on Auburn’s support staff, has left to take a similar position on Geoff Collins’ staff at Georgia Tech, a person familiar with the decision tells Auburn Undercover.

    Suddes had been with Auburn since 2016 and served as the assistant athletics director for football handling office work and overseeing the Tigers’ recruiting department. He also managed the roster.
